We have just released Version 6 of “ShotList“, the production stripboard app that helps filmmakers to break down scripts then track progress throughout their shoot.
This new version is a major graphical update, allowing many more shots per scene, with faster ways to add shots and scenes and duplicate projects, along with many other tweaks and improvements.
Here’s a quick round-up of some of the new goodies…
You can now store up to 26 shots and storyboards per scene (up from 6 in the old version.)
You can now rapidly duplicate an entire project. Tap “Manage” on the screen that lists your project names, and drag the project you wish to duplicate onto the red bar that appears.
The Details page can now show many more shots in a swipe-able thumbnail strip. Swipe left or right to see all the shots (up and down in landscape mode.) Double-tap to toggle completion status on a shot, single-tap a shot to view it.
You can now see shots on the iPhone Details page in landscape mode, too.
You can add a new blank scene from the Details page, by tapping “+” on the menu bar. It will be inserted after the current scene.
The Gallery page now lets you view all the shots for your scenes as a collection.
The controls here have also changed a little, they now are:
- Tap a shot, to edit its details or storyboard image.
- Double-tap a shot, to set or clear the completion status
- Tap and drag a shot, to rearrange the shooting order.
- Tap the “+” image to create a new shot
- swipe up or down to see other scenes.
The shot page will now offer to create a new shot if you swipe past the last in the current scene
Scene lengths are now shown as pages and eighths throughout- not as irregular fractions of eighths of a page.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The change in number of shots meant that a new file format was required.
Although the new version can read both new and old file formats, old versions of Shotlist cannot read the new format, so be sure to update all of your devices at the same time.
As always, both complaints and compliments are very welcome. Let us know if you experience any problems, using the Support button on the title page of the app, and we will do our very best to help.
ShotList works with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini running iOS6.1 and above. It is available now on the App Store.
