Converting TBS 4 Storyboard Project From 30 to 24 fps?


Is there was a way to convert a 30 fps Toon Boom Storyboard 4 project to 24 fps and preserve the original timing and duration? We recently decided to switch our project’s framerate and I need to quickly get a new animatic out at 24 fps with the revised scene frame numbers burned in and synced audio.

I know I could do the rate conversion by importing our current 30 fps animatic into a video editor and re-output it at 24 fps, but that doesn’t help me with getting the correct 24 fps scene frame number burn-in, at least not easily.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.


Couldn’t figure out a way to do this in TBS without making it a big deal, so I wound up changing the fps of the TBS animatic output in Vegas, overlaying a new frame counter for each scene, and then writing it out again. It really wasn’t as big a deal as I thought it would be and the Vegas re-timed version of the animatic will work out fine for us.

Just posting this info for anybody else who may have to do this.
