Started using the app for my next shoot today, and most of the functionality is awesome.
Just one thing I can't figure out and would make or break it for me:
How do you add storyboard images to different versions of the camera/shots - instead of just multiple images to one camera?
Let me explain it:
I have a shot going on with a focus pull and tilt at the end, multiple actions happening within the shot.
The only 'nice' way to visualise this, is to keep 1 camera (which I label as 'shot x') and add different versions to it (CU/MCU/M) to progress the shot.
If I add three storyboard images to it, only 1 (the last one) will show up in the PDF export, but the versions will have empty storyboard-space without the images connected. In the app though (as well iOS as macOS) I cannot tether the images to the versions, just solely to the camera icon.
See attached images for clarity.
Hope you can let me know - how to approach this or maybe add this as a functionality? How do you all realise this?
This is not an uncommon request. Casually, what the app does is fine, until you need more specificity.
I want to come up with a way to specify which version an image is attached to, but what is holding it back is that this will definitely be a document version upgrade, which we haven't done in a while. In order for people to sync, this forces everyone everywhere onto new versions, which have to be available and rolled out in sync.
And the build process for the app is still a bit wonky, because the transition from Adobe to Harman maintaining the AIR SDK meant all new build system across the board. Right now, releasing a wide update feels as serious as disarming a bomb, so I've been dragging my heels. Half of everything you see on TV is blocked in Shot Designer, so I can't make mistakes.
But there's a pile-up of desired features that need a document upgrade, so I think the time is soon. And then this feature is a good idea. The printed shotlist is less useful without it.
