Great PreViz Tool


I’m currently developing a shot list and storyboards for a short film, and this app makes my life so much easier. Easy to use and works really well.


-A great in-app purchase would be expansions to the people and objects we can use. e.g. People sitting, running, kneeling, etc. and basic furniture like chairs and tables.

-I can’t figure out how to remove someone from the frame without just force quitting my app. Is there an easy way to reset the frame that I’m missing?

My storyboard artist and I have been taking weird, awkward selfies to try and figure out 3D perspectives for her to reference as she makes her 2D drawings, so this app is a lifesaver. A few updates will make this a truly indispensable tool.

Developer Response

Thanks so much for the review and the feedback!

- To delete a character swipe across them (We know this isn't easy to discover and are considering a tutorial or reworking the feature)
- We hear you on suggestions for the models and plan on adding those. If you have other model requests please send them to We want the asset library to be driven by user's needs.

We'd love to see what you're creating. Feel free to share #blocker

Seems great

Maybe it’s just mine, but the camera freezes before I can actually set up a shot. I get blurry pictures or just a shot that’s not correctly framed. Like the 3D models because I cannot draw!

Thanks for reaching out, sorry to hear you're having an issue. Its best if you email me at so that we can work through your issue. I've gotten a few reports of camera issues. Take a look at [settings > privacy > location services > system services] and make sure “Compass Calibration” is enabled.

This is a really great tool. Keep going and keep developing this!

-figures are hard to rotate, shrink and enlarge
- would be great to have a video function enabled for moving shots
- there should be an option to export multiple images at once instead of as one flattened image file

Thanks for creating this awesome piece of software. I’m going to use this a ton.

Developer Response

Thank you for your review and your feedback. We'll continue to refine the move, scale, rotate and swipe to delete gestures.

You should be able to export multiple individual photos by selecting multiple photos then tapping on the large down arrow button.

We have plans to add video functionality, but I'm not entirely sure of the timing of this feature.
