Get the best of your stories in Blender

Draw your ideas, explore various directions and cuts, place the cameras and edit your story in real time and with great simplicity!
StoryLiner, all you need from storyboard to 3D scene management and rendering, for artits, directors and studios.

StoryLiner is a Blender add-on. It is now reaching BETA stage. The first public release is planed to be in November 2023.
Currently supported Blender versions are 3.6 LTS and 4.0.

What is it?

StoryLiner is a fork of an open-source pre-production tool named Ubisoft Shot Manager that I initialy crafted to support the previz of the animated TV series Raving Rabbids - Mission to Mars we did at Ubisoft in 2020 / 2021. I extended it with a whole storyboarding workflow for the needs of another production then its development ceased.

Deeply convinsed that there was still a need for it in the Blender community and eager to continue exploring its huge potential, I decided to give it a second life and took this opportunity to push forward - or deeply revisit in some cases - several key concepts.

Here are the result of those experimentations.
This add-on too is designed to be production oriented, production proof and… artist friendly!!
