What's New?

  • sparkle

    Automatic Initial Images: When you use the script generator to create a storyboard, the first four images are now automatically generated in your chosen style. No more starting from a blank page – you’ll have a ready-made foundation to build upon right away, helping you visualize your story.

  • sparkle

    Pre-Filled Prompts: To streamline the rest of your storyboarding process, the remaining frames will now come with pre-filled image prompts. This allows you to get right into creating the perfect visuals without the hassle of writing prompts from scratch. Focus on fine-tuning your storyboard and bringing your vision to life.

  • sparkle

    Credit-Free Images: The best part? These automatically created images don’t use any of your image credits. Let your creativity run wild and save your credits for when you need them most.

We believe these updates will greatly enhance your storyboarding experience, making it faster, smoother, and more enjoyable.

Introducing AI Character Guidelines

At Boords, we believe in pushing the boundaries of creative storytelling. That's why we're thrilled to unveil our latest innovation: AI Character Guidelines.

Before, creating AI-generated storyboard frames with consistent characters was virtually impossible. Now, you can generate storyboards with consistent, recognisable characters from frame to frame.

Character Guidelines are a pioneering tool in AI-driven storyboard creation, enabling you to maintain character consistency like never before.

Character Editing

We've designed the Character Guidelines feature to be incredibly user-friendly. You don't need to be a tech wizard or learn the ins and outs of prompt engineering to use it.

A simple form guides you through character customization, and a preview image helps you see your creation come to life.

Simple Image Sequences

Create an image you like, then use that it as a "seed" for subsequent images. Small variations in your prompt can help you quickly generate several frames with the same character.

Subtle scene variations with the same character in each.

To create new variations, just select the "use image as seed" option and modify your prompt:

Switch Outfits

Different scenes call for different attire. Quickly generate character variations with different outfits so you can always be sure your character is dressed for the occasion.

While we're proud of what the Character Guidelines feature offers today, we're not stopping here. We're in beta, and we're tirelessly working to add more guidelines like shot type and character direction.

Your next great storyboard is just a few clicks away. Try the Character Guidelines feature now and bring your creative vision to life.

Create AI image variations with Seed Images!

Enhance your AI image generation with the new “seed” image feature, allowing for a more targeted and consistent creative process. It allows you to create subtle variations to an existing image, so you can tweak your AI images without starting from scratch!

What is a seed image?

A seed image is an AI-generated image that you provide to guide the AI in generating a new image aligned with your vision. It acts as a starting point, setting the stage for what's to come.

Why are they useful?

  • sparkle
    Direction: Use seed images to direct the AI towards producing images that align more closely with your vision.
  • sparkle
    Consistency: Maintain a consistent style across a series of images.
  • sparkle
    Creative Control: Influence the outcome by setting a benchmark for the AI to follow.
