Montreal (May 12, 2008) â€“ Emmy award-winning Toon Boom Animation Inc.
today announced its partnership with Automatic Duck to bring the
editing process to the next level. Toon Boom Storyboard Pro exports
animatics in the AAF file format and Pro Import FCP takes them
straight into Final Cut Pro, with automated relink of video files and
unlimited audio tracks.
The combination of these professional tools enables users to speed up
the finishing of their video projects, thanks to a more efficient and
advanced use of the animatics during editing.
"Pro Import FCP serves as a bridge between Storyboard Pro and Final
Cut Pro. Once the animated storyboards are approved, editors can work
with enriched animatic files and plan faster the final editing of the
projects. We are proud to deliver technology compatible with such a
powerful plug-in that will make the editing much smoother," shared
Joan Vogelesang, President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom.
A Storyboard Pro-Pro Import FCP bundle is available at $1,099.99 US in
