Today was a about the Animatic process from script writing with the Fountain syntax/markup to unfurling to a video, to then using the Asset Browser with collection instances to setup animatics and quick Grease Pencil orientation to start storyboarding in layout directly. Also this isquick intro to using the grid aligned to 3D Cursor and view for the Grease Pencil. I also cover information about two addons that help work with managing scenes and master edits with the Video Sequence Editor in Blender and Bforaritsts. Later in the last 20 minutes, we had Shmuel showcase his curve node groups with Geometry Nodes which are now available for free in Erindales Discord Server and Gumroad.
Topics for today:
- - Why Animatics
- - How to use the experimental Asset Manager for collections and the GP to work Animatics
- - How to use Scene Management and VSE addons for Animatics
- - Animatic Work, setting up cameras and layout proposals
