Rob Ripley What a serendipitous post, Stephanie. Over the holidays I started noodling around with Fade In. Would love to hear about any stumbles your readers have had with Fade In.
As always, thanks for the great info! I have to admit that Celtx is slowly winning me away from Fade In, however. What level of familiarity would you recommend aspiring screenwriters to have with Final Draft?
Is there a chance that you would have to convert your script into Final Draft if the movie goes into production?
That is work I would personally be happy to do.
Reply Irene Great point! Having to convert my script for that purpose would be the opposite of a problem for me. Knowing how to use Final Draft really came in handy when I worked an internship, but that was a while ago, before all these cool new programs existed. And you can download out of it once you pay into the paid service, I believe there is still a free trial version into PDF, Celtx, Final Draft, etc.
