Japanese Anime Production Support System with Digital Storyboards
Storyboards are used in the beginning stages of making animation to explain the story or screenplay. This paper proposes a system which assists with storyboard writing and the production process. This system is used with a tablet that allows for input with a pen. It automatically calculates the number of cuts and time required for each scene and can automatically produce a schedule from storyboards. This system makes management for overall animation easy.
