Well it is actually the part of the process that gave me the idea :) I was 
likely do I really have to manually cut my story board, and then to remerge 
the whole things together by hand ?

Yes, even if CBS would be fully optimized to work with Krita, and probably 
highly dependent on it, it does not prevent to use other tools ! And that is 
where things like OpenRaster would come into play in the future.

Cool video. Close to what I had in mind (not sure about the rasterize step, I 
would try to keep the layout as long as possible).
