As my background is originally in film editing I have a particular fondness for animatics.. once you add motion, sound, and music to some art or models they just come alive.

The animatics below were created using a combination of traditional art, Photoshop, Procreate, Avid Media Composer, Sketchup, Twilight Render, and No Limits 2 with custom scripting.

Fully rendered queue fly-through, queue storyboard, and virtual ride though a massing model with full dialogue and soundtrack for an elaborate e-ticket Mary Poppins ride. Sketchup Model animated in No Limits Coaster, edited in Avid Media Composer.
An early-stage animatic for a streetcar ride in the vein of classic dark rides such as Mr. Toad. Hand drawn storyboards, edited in Avid Media Composer.
