Di-O-Matic Acquires Storyboarder for Pre-production solutions
Montreal, Qc - September 19, 2002 - Di-O-Matic, a leading character animation software developer, announces today that it has recently acquired all rights to the stand-alone storyboarding software previously known as Storyboarder from Perpetual Minds, a Detroit-based research and development organization specializing in pre-production software solutions.
As a result of this acquisition, Di-O-Matic, in partnership with Perpetual Minds, will enhance Storyboarder, the non-linear storyboard and animatics solution, into a full-blown commercial application designed for pre-production studios and for storyboard artists.
Storyboarder's non-linear approach to pre-visualization drastically speeds up scripting and storyboarding for the Cartoon, Film, and 3D Animation industries. "Finally, a solution to create nice storyboards and animatics truly designed for production use," says Sergio Mucino, Technical Director at Metacube."We can now easily convert storyboards to HTML web pages for easy overseas approval."
Di-O-Matic expects Storyboarder to hit the market in Q1 2003. More information will be available at www.diomatic.com when Storyboarder reaches an advanced beta stage.
