Do animatics have sound?
Animatics can contain sound, unlike storyboards. Music, sound effects and even voiceover narration and/or acting can be used. Sound helps the creators and stakeholders visualise the finished product that an animatic is made for.
What other software can I use to make an animatic?
Adobe After Effects is a popular choice for creating animatics. You can use After Effects to:
Manipulate drawings using the puppet tool.
Add elements to the view screen including time codes, frame count and shot number.
- Export in different formats and codecs.

If so, you can hire a professional artist to help with pre-production, including storyboards and animatics.
