As a filmmaker I’m working nowadays a lot with unreal, to make an animatic, a storyboard with moving images.
that way I can do research on my camera movements, focal lengths, think about tempo and so on.
So I’m working a lot with the sequencer.
Now I need to go with this animatic to other colleagues (DOP, actors) and discuss with them several possibilities.
I’ve found already several burn-in options. Which will be very helpful.
An annoying thing I notice is the change of the name. When I rename for example a shot in my cinematics folder, it won’t be changed in the “timeline” of the sequencer. I have to remove it and add it again so that I have an update of the shot name.
Am I missing something here?
Next to that, it would be good to add for example some text of the screenplay or other extra info. So in short: I’m looking for a way to add custom info to shots.
Is this built into Unreal? Or do I need to export everything to editing software?
Thank you all for your help,
