Working on a collaborative Storyboarding app! Any feature requests?

The Storyboard process feels stuck in the old ages, and we're going to change that. It'll be all about easy organization and feedback with your team. It's called Plot (http://theplot.io) and will launch sometime before the end of August. I'd love to hear any feature requests you may have!

Audio integration. Saying lines, audio notes, SFX, etc. Not a usual feature, but I do think it would be nice.

Thanks for the idea. Yeah, so essentially allowing file attachments to scenes, as a point of a reference for all sorts of things.

P.S. Built-in animatic editing is on our radar too!

Wow it looks really nice!
I'm on it to to add audio. The ability to record voice notes and also add sound to specific scenes or shots so that we can show the mood of that part.

Great work and good luck!

Allow easy integration of digital photos. I create most of my storyboards using a small digital camera which is an extremely fast way to generate scene layouts and it simulates what the actual film might look like.

Awesome. Yes, the current method will be dependent on uploading your own images (which can be anything you wish).

Do image dimensions or aspect ratio matter ?

i.e. Is there a specific size for format that we should use to generate our images

In the first version, default aspect ratio will be 16x9. There may or may not be a limit at a 1920x1080 resolution. File type limitations are to be determined, but JPG and PNG support is a safe bet.

I was a little unclear from going to the site, if there's a stock of thousands of images that you can use for your storyboards or if the only choice is for you to provide them on your own? Can you use something else like Youtube instead of Vimeo for your video? Vimeo takes forever to load.

I use Prolost Boardo for making animated storyboards. So a good workflow for exporting your storyboard frames for previs animation stuff would be high on my list! Cool idea.
