Feature focus: Storyboards
Storyboards are a great planning tool for any video. Starting with a storyboard can help you structure your story, get feedback from collaborators, and make sure you have the content you need, or a plan for what to record, before you jump into creating your video.
Did you know that you have video storyboards built right into your ScreenPal desktop app? You can start your video with a storyboard, plan out your sections with notes, a script, or both, pull in content from anywhere, and easily rearrange sections of your storyboard to build out your video visually.
Storyboards are integrated with the video editor, so you can edit any section of your storyboard, add transitions between sections, and add music to your story like you would any video. You can turn your storyboard script into captions with a click. Watch this video tutorial to see how storyboards work in ScreenPal.
New training: How to create tutorials
Have you ever wondered how the SceenPal team uses our own tools to create our video tutorials? We’re going to show you! Join us live on Friday, February 16, at 3 pm EST / 12 pm PST for a fun, free webinar where we’ll share our tips, tricks, and favorite features for creating tutorial videos like these ones!
We’ll walk through what makes an effective tutorial video, our top tips, and demo time-saving features. We’ll also show you how we use video storyboards in ScreenPal to plan, structure, and easily update our own tutorials.
New ways to launch your creative tools
We’re always looking to make it easier for you to access the ScreenPal tools you need wherever you are. We have two new updates to make your creation workflow easier!
