Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Movie Outline 3 (PC/Mac CD) (CD-ROM)
I wasn't sure which script-writing software to buy so I downloaded demo versions of the available choices - Movie Outline, Final Draft etc and found Movie Outline to be the best and as such bought the full version.
It's very easy to use and understand and is perfect for quickly setting up and writing your script. The software also has has considerable depth with regards to story development and character development by charting the course of your character through the story and by creating in-depth biographies for them. It is also possible to break your story down into bite-sized 'steps' which allow you to work at a less daunting pace and be more focused on the part of the story you're working on.
The only issue I've had with this software is that once my script gets to 50+ pages it begins to slow down quite conisderably. The software has an auto-complete function in which, for example, a list of character names are prepared for you so you don't need to keep writing them everytime they speak. However it is this feature which I find grinds to a halt when my script grows in size. I cannot. however, say whether this is the fault of the software or my computer.
All in all, if you want a good piece of scriptwriting software I would recommend Movie Outline.
