The touch interface is user hostile and it's near impossible to select what you want in a busy scene. It takes 45 minutes to set up with this software something you can draw on paper in seconds. This is a good idea because laying out your shots is a good idea, but I find the software gets in the way of actually doing that. It's super frustrating when camera tracking involves tapping six things when you just need a line to exist. The whole control point scheme is a tap click nightmare. Glad the software exists, it's just a productivity killer on my set.
Fairly well done interface which is mostly intuitive makes it easy to design simple or complex shots quickly. The sync solution uses Dropbox, so you have to have a Dropbox account in order to sync across devices, which is annoying. At the very least, it would be nice to be able to choose a file share provider, such as Drive or whatever. You can't batch export scenes, which is already a pain for the short I'm working on with < 10 scenes. I can only imagine trying to do a feature length film with this and having to manually export 100+ scenes to PDF to be able to print and share with the crew. I imagine if anyone is actually using this for big productions they either share a Dropbox account across the whole team and bring their devices on set (which is probably not a bad solution anyway) or some poor intern spends hours exporting files. At any rate, a batch export feature seems to be a glaring omission. Other than that, a very useful app, and I hope to watch it improve moving forward.
Shot Design App Means Cinematography! Cinematography is Awesome! Too Bad I Can't Go Back and See How Good My Work Was Shot Designer makes me feel like a director of photography which is something I like. It feels fun to place the cameras and get good angles of the action. In this app, you can move the characters, place props, and design the set. That's more than what I asked. This could've been a great app but of course they have to blow it by not allowing the most important thing: saving. Paying a fortune for 'Pro Edition' is unacceptable. At least a five slot save and I'll be happy. In fact exchange the props for save.
this app should get 4.9 star. but only one prb makes it so bad. no one work only one scene in 1 day. we did all shot division in 1 time, its not like that, one done thene I handed another work. when the director says what's the plan for nxt scene? what should i say " give me some time, i m working on it on the spot?... plz slove it as soon u can. its a very usefull for us. Thanks
Really odd that there's no way to show overhangings from buildings and there is no way to show stairs. There's a bare minimum of props and set pieces to use, is there a way to import your own props because that would make the most sense
Its for professionals but its expensive for a mobile app. Dont bother with the free version like I did, you cant save your work. Its good for camera blocking, yet I prefer Celtx
