Script Studio® was created by a produced writer to take the complexity out of the screenwriting and novel writing process. Its intuitive design is based on the principle of step-outlining which allows you to plan your story structure, develop characters and professionally format your screenplay, stageplay or novel scene by scene or chapter by chapter, providing all the tools all you need in a single package.
With Script Studio you can easily plan and customize your story structure, color-code acts, rearrange scenes, develop and track characters, format your screenplay or stageplay to industry standard and gauge the progress of your own story to that of included outlines and analyses of successful Hollywood movies, allowing you to simultaneously compare your own narrative's pacing with the pros. Simply put, Script Studio is the ultimate writer's tool.

Break your story down into key sequences so you can plan and build your script or novel step by step, chapter by chapter or scene by scene, allowing you to maintain your creative flow while structuring your narrative.
Script Studio automatically formats your script to professional industry standards. This allows you to focus on your story and characters and let Script Studio handle the pagination and layout via "Tab and Enter" keyboard shortcuts and auto-complete which suggests character names and scene headings as you type.
Customize your story structure into color-coded acts, drag-and-drop steps and virtual "index cards" to re-organize your narrative, and refer to sample templates which many Hollywood blockbusters are based upon.
Create in-depth character profiles and with headshots from the gallery, answer a series of probing interview style questions, define relationships, analyze dialogue exchanges and develop story arcs step by step.
Keep track of character ideas, plot points, draft script scenes and research in the global "Scratch Pad" and use "Story Tasks" to build a checklist of story objectives so you never forget a clever twist or witty line again!
Script Studio can import directly from and export to Final Draft (.fdx), Adobe PDF, Rich Text (.rtf), Plain Text (.txt), HTML web pages and Fountain file formats, and export script data to scheduling programs for production.
