FrameForge PV3PRO-EDU-P overview

  • 1Description

For students, faculty, and staff of an accredited school; active U.S. military; and members of approved Government or non-profit organizations, the Previz Studio 3.6 Pro Version Premium Edition, from FrameForge, is an electronic download of software that frees you from the limitation of stick figure storyboards, hiring an artist to draw them, or using clip art to create your storyboards. The Previz Studio 3.6 Pro version allows you to use your computer to create data-rich storyboards that are optically accurate and can save you time on the shoot day because your storyboards match the real-world conditions of your location. The Pro version adds unlimited physical camera support

You can choose to work in any aspect ratio, and your storyboards will mimic the optical properties of any camera format from Super8 to IMAX and HD in free floating cameras. The software allows you to build and dress virtual sets and locations, add characters, and have the actors interact with props. You can add an unlimited number of cameras to your set, and the storyboards / virtual shots you create in the software match your locations. The cameras that you create in the software can pan, tilt, dolly, roll, and crane so you can tweak your shots in pre-production instead of on location. Previz Studio 3.6 Pro version is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.

The premium version adds a variety of expansion packs, which give access to new actor faces, ethnic and period clothing styles, and a stock of 40 fully-dressed sets. Also included are themed packs relating to emergency response, crime & justice, and the military.

Academic Version
The academic version is virtually the same as the full version with the following exceptions:
  • The software allows installation on one computer at a time.
  • Academic editions do not allow full actor nudity.

The academic version requires valid proof that the end-user is an active member of the U.S. military; a member of an approved Government or non-profit organization; or an enrolled Student, Faculty, or Staff of an accredited school at the time of purchase. Examples of valid proof include copy of current class registration, military ID, student ID, faculty ID, or staff ID. Persons attending film or writing workshops only are not eligible.
Previz 3.5 Advantages Over Storyboarding by Hand
  • With this FrameForge software you'll be able to easily determine whether that shot you envision is actually practical to shoot before you get to the location and realize your hand drawn storyboards don't reflect the real world. When you're working in FrameForge's optically accurate virtual space with the real constraints of your actual shooting situation--space and equipment limits, true perspective, etc.--the software guides you so that you can only prepare what is physically able to be shot.
  • You can choose to pre-visualize using virtually any camera format from Super8 to IMAX, as well as HD.
More Than Just Storyboards
In addition to choosing the angles that make up your shoot, you can add important information to the storyboards that can be shared with the crew. This information includes the type of camera, equipment needed, camera data such as focal length and camera height, dolly, and dolly track. You can produce the view of the shot that the camera will see, including movement arrows, and provide a bird's eye view of the shot complete with camera positions and what the camera angle captures.

With Previz 3.5, you can share the storyboard information, which can aid in ordering the equipment you need to pull off the shot. Another benefit is that your crew can know with a certainty which parts of the location are camera safe, and they can dress, pre-rig, and light without having to work on areas that won't be seen.
Import and Build Your Own
Previz Studio 3.5 comes with basic building blocks and hinges so you can create new objects directly in the program if you wish. However, you can import 3D objects saved in VRML or FBX (which is the standard export format for Maya, 3DS Max, and many other 3D modeling programs). You can also import Sketchup files, millions of which are freely available on the web.
Previz 3.6 Pro
Unlike Previz Studio 3.6 Core, which only allows you floating cameras, the Pro version allows both floating and physical cameras as well as multiple floating, physical, and practical lighting sources. The physical camera and lighting fixtures allow you to know if your planned camera and lighting setups will physically fit in the location / set.
