Storyboard That (www.storyboardthat.com) has an awesome new feature for over 70 scenes in the Storyboard Creator. “Smart Scenes” are customizable background scenes with artistic effects, like time of day and weather. Now you can take the same scene and change it in many ways. Each scene has different options; sometimes you can remove/add furniture or objects, open/close doors, turn lights on and off. Some scenes have unique changes, like drawing stage curtains or turning bubbles on in the hot tub!
To see what the options are for a particular scene, click on the blue “Edit Scene” button on the image editing palette.
A pop-up will show the options as well as a preview of the edited scene. In this example, you can change time of day, weather, street lights, and windows.
If you choose a “See-Through” option, you can layer other scenes and characters behind the main scene to appear inside the building.
With these new capabilities, you have even more creative freedom than before! If you haven’t already, go check it out and see what you can do!
