Scenarist Designer is the original graphics processing and export engine plug-in for Adobe Photoshop. With Scenarist Designer, the industry standard graphics app can automatically convert layered Photoshop documents (PSD files) into author-ready menu layouts, including backgrounds and all button states, in either HDMV and BD-J modes for both BD and Ultra HD Blu-ray titles. That’s a big deal! Here’s why:
It’s typical for an authored title to have multiple menus including static and pop-up styles. Every menu commonly has several of buttons, each with three button states (unselected, selected, activated). When adding it all up, graphic artists generate hundreds of graphic elements per title. Now think about doing that for both HD and UHD, in SDR and HDR…
Delivering hundreds of graphic files for an author to import and process would be an overwhelming task for everyone. Instead, Scenarist designer provides a lightning-fast export engine that delivers a single file that contains everything and is author-ready. Authors simply import the Scenarist Designer file and connect the assets and define the navigation. And, Scenarist Designer allows you to designate bt.709 and bt.2020 color space making the workflow unmatched for BD and 4K Ultra HD title production.
Scenarist Designer saves hundreds of tedious processing hours per title.
Every title goes through a revision process. The producer wants to change a color, or a button has to be change position, etc. With Scenarist Designer, the graphic artist simply makes the required change(s) and re-exports. When the author reimports the Scenarist Designer file, the title menus are immediately and automatically updated preserving all navigation and programming.
Scenarist Designer is revolutionary product that has helped authoring service providers maintain their costs and deliver on client expectations.
