"I consider FrameForge the finest previsualization software I've ever seen." - Bill Dill, ASC

Step Up To The Power of Previz! ™

The FrameForge ‘Multi-Camera Control Room’ is a virtual film studio allowing users to build rooms and spaces, place cameras, props and actors anywhere with drag-n-drop simplicity. This creates a virtual but true-to-life location in the user’s computer to explore and experiment with multiple camera angles, shots and lenses in an optically accurate 3D world.

FrameForge ships with over 750 unique World Ready™ Objects that work like their real counterparts and intrinsically know how to interact with FF3D actors. Drag an actor to a chair and he sits, drag a gun or cigarette to a hand and will be held, dresser drawers pull open and trees lose their leaves. Further, actor features like ‘reach-for’ and ‘look-at’ simplify posing that can be modified down to a single finger's joint.
