About Scripting


The Storyboard Pro Scripting guide contains information to help you use Qt Script, the scripting language used by Toon Boom Storyboard Pro.

Qt Script provides access to many of the functions supported in the Storyboard Pro interface. With Qt Script, you can automate a number of Storyboard Pro functions to speed up the completion of various repetitive tasks.

Qt Script is an object-oriented scripting language based on the ECMAScript standard, like JavaScript and JScript. However, there are some differences that distinguish Qt Script from these other scripting languages, which are familiar to web programmers. For a reference on how to write Qt Scripts for the Storyboard Pro scripting interface, see Scripting Reference.
