[non-Blender] Review: Storyboarder


Blender Rookie takes a look at the freeware Storyboarder software for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

About Storyboarder:

Storyboarder makes it easy to visualize a story as fast you can draw stick figures. Quickly draw to test if a story idea works. Create and show animatics to others. Express your story idea without making a movie.

We built Storyboarder because the storyboarding tool we wanted simply didn't exist. We are making it better every day. In fact, we have released it free and open source. You can and even make improvements.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Wow, that looks really good! I have previously just created a bunch of images manually and edited them together in video editing software. I will definitely have to give it a try when I start the storyboarding process on my short film.

  2. You have informed us about this new very cool software,but in your video you didn't talk about the integration between it and blender ? but this site talks about blender...

        • Storyboarding is essential for any animation process with any animation software. You need some way to block out your scenes. Admittingly, you can do this with grease pencil but if storyboarding is faster than it may be a better option.
