Pre-Visualization vs. Post-Visualization

Some people ask… What’s the difference between pre-viz and post-viz?  How do filmmakers plan ahead for both stages?  What tools can help streamline the process?

PowerProduction has developed software to help our customers with all types of visualization for their media productions.  For previsualization, we offer StoryBoard Quick, StoryBoard Quick Studio, StoryBoard Artist, and StoryBoard Artist Studio.  (You can see a comparison of their features in our Store here.)  For post-visualization, we’ve developed Martini QuickShot Creator, a plug-in for Final Cut Pro on Mac and Premiere Pro on Windows, for editors to visualize necessary shots during editing.

Previz is typically done before shooting. Directors and cinematographers rely on storyboards in combination with the script so that they can plan their shots and angles before reaching the set, and communicate this plan clearly to cast and crew.  Planning in this way saves a ton of time during shooting, and saves a lot of energy and money too!
