Share Article

Movie Outline® Software today launched a comprehensive free upgrade to its popular script and story development package which now boasts even more powerful features including import and export to Final Draft® 8 and scheduling.

Movie Outline 3 for Mac & Windows

Our aim is simple: to make the writing process as effortless as possible and by offering users the ability to upload a script and have it in the hands of a producer the same day is another step toward that goal.

Movie Outline announced that although the new version of their script writing software includes over 100 new features and improvements and is much more extensive than a regular update, it was pleased to offer this release as a free upgrade to existing users of Version 3. “Our customers are very loyal and only ever have positive things to say about Movie Outline,” said Dan Bronzite, CEO. “As such we would like to give something back in appreciation for their help in shaping the product and the direction of its future evolution.”

Import & Export Upgrade

With Version 3.1 writers now have even more document sharing options available that include the ability to open and automatically reformat PDF files, import to and from Final Draft 8's new XML file format (.fdx) , and export to scheduling format (.sex) that can be opened by most of the leading production management programs. Users can also display, print and export scene numbers.

Full Script Mode & Scene Cards

One of the most requested features from existing users was to have the ability to edit a full screenplay while retaining a project’s step structure. To address this the new version has introduced a powerful new editing mode so writers can have the best of both worlds and work in a methodology that suits them. This new mode also displays a scene list that helps you navigate your script and displays “scenes” instead of “steps” in its virtual index card organization tool.

Hollywood Script Express Integration

Version 3.1 now integrates direct access to Movie Outline Software’s unique online screenwriting service that offers intellectual property registration and professional script copying and binding with same-day courier delivery within Los Angeles and express shipping to any international destination. “This integration will assist writers from concept to submission so that Movie Outline becomes a key tool throughout a project’s development,” states Product Manager Evelyne Kennedy. “Our aim is simple: to make the writing process as effortless as possible and by offering users the ability to upload a script and have it in the hands of a producer the same day is another step toward that goal.”
