Storyboard: The future is friendly!

Apr 24, 2013 9:56:52 PM

A quick sneak preview of what's coming up in Storyboard Designer soon...
Up until now, making any changes to your original Photoshop design and then applying those to your Storyboard application was a process which could take several hours and at least two cups of coffee. A new feature - Apply PSD - is currently in the works to help you accomplish this process in just a few minutes and reduce your caffeine intake!

Comparison view

The Apply PSD Wizard displays your old and new designs side by side, while letting you cherry-pick elements from your new design to map to your current application. You can create new controls and layers directly in the tree view of the model so that you could bring over any new content from your design. Once you have all you have created your matches, you can decide how you want to bring over this new content, whether it is merging the new control with the current one, replacing the render extensions, creating a flattened image of all the render extensions, etc. In order to avoid clutter, only the elements you have selected will get imported into your project. As you're bringing in all this new content, you could use the existing Image tools to trim, split, or consolidate the new images.

Post apply operations


Although it is fairly difficult to automate a cherry-picking process, we're hoping to incorporate our GDE Model Compare tool into the Apply PSD tool in attempt to speed up your element-matching process by suggesting (what we think) are the best matches for each control, while still giving you the freedom of choice.
