Storyboarder Review

Storyboarder from Wonder Unit is an excellent free storyboard software available for Windows and Mac users. If offers access to four drawing tools like light pencil for roughing, brush for filling in some shading, pencil for fast sketching, and pen for inking strong lines, and a rubber to clean drawings. All tools available in Storyboarder are accessible from top of app window. Storyboarder offers support for Fountain documents, layers, various guide overlays, Wacom tablets, play animations, and more. The Storyboarder download links directly to the developer page where you can download and install version dedicated for Windows and Mac users. In my opinion this is definitely the best free storyboard software out there.
