Here is a one-minute look at the Shottio interface:
When Shottio first released last month, the free tier did not include the ability to collaborate. The company said it soon realized this was a mistake.
“Shottio is all about collaboration and this feature was not yet accessible in our free tier,” said Alex Santo, CEO of Ahead.IO, which makes the app. “It didn’t make much sense! We want artists to use Shottio, to get the opportunity to test its amazing possibilities with the free tier, and then, if it’s relevant for them, to integrate it even more in their workflow with the pro tier.”
Santo, who is based in Vancouver, has previously worked at visual effects studios including SpinVFX and Image Engine, at games studio Ubisoft, and at animation and vfx firms in India.
The free version of Shottio limits users to the creation of one ‘story’ and 100 exports per month, and is designed to get users on board with the storyboarding tool. The as-yet-unreleased pro tier, at $18/month, will have unlimited stories and exports, as well as other features. Ahead.IO also has plans to provide a further Studio-focused tier.
