Toon Boom and Automatic Duck Make Editing a Breeze

Montreal (May 12, 2008) – Emmy award-winning Toon Boom Animation Inc. today
announced its partnership with Automatic Duck to bring the editing process
to the next level. Toon Boom Storyboard Pro exports animatics in the AAF
file format and Pro Import FCP takes them straight into Final Cut Pro, with
automated relink of video files and unlimited audio tracks.

The combination of these professional tools enables users to speed up the
finishing of their video projects, thanks to a more efficient and advanced
use of the animatics during editing.

“Pro Import FCP serves as a bridge between Storyboard Pro and Final Cut
Pro. Once the animated storyboards are approved, editors can work with
enriched animatic files and plan faster the final editing of the projects.
We are proud to deliver technology compatible with such a powerful plug-in
that will make the editing much smoother,” shared Joan Vogelesang,
President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom.

A Storyboard Pro-Pro Import FCP bundle is available at $1,099.99 US in the
Toon Boom online Store.
