French animation studio Miam ! Animation Miam! Animation showcases BOARDMACHINE, their in-house 3D storyboarding tool. It was used during the production of the animated series Edmond and Lucy.
As Miam! Animation explained us, BOARDMACHINE is a standalone 3D real-time tool: no need for artists to have any knowledge of engines such as Unity, Unreal. They can access all the assets from the TV show, and the tool was created to be as simple as possible. This way, story artists, who work for various studios, don’t have to face a steep learning curve.
Director Francois Narboux gave additional details during a conference back in november. He discussed the whole pipeline and how real-time 3D impacts the way artists work, as well as helps . The conference is in French, however.
Edmond and Lucy is produced by MIAM ! animation, directed by François Narboux. Authors: Astrid Desbordes, Marc Boutavant, Balthazar Chapuis, François Narboux.
