> I've heard of this software written by a company in Burbank > called Screenplay Systems. They sell software called: Movie > Magic Scheduling/Breakdown, Movie Magic Budgeting & Scriptor. > Does anyone have experience with using any of the above? Thousands do, many of whom were at ShowBiz Expo in LA last weekend. Of the vendors present at the show, the competitors for scheduling/breakdown appear to be Movie Magic and TurboAD. They are competitive in features, but in general I would say the Screenplay Systems software requires much more powerful hardware to function productively. It is also has a proprietary mouse- intensive interface, so if you're a good typist, be prepared for lots of wrist strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and generally slower throughput. However, while the Screenplay Systems programs run IDENTICALLY on PCs and Macs, TurboAd is a DOS product. As for screenplay processors, Screenplay Systems has released a long-overdue new version of Scriptor, but despite their threats two years ago to produce a combined word/screenplay processor, Scriptor remains a formatter. You do your work in another package, then run it through Scriptor. Those who, like me, prefer to work within one package, were able to preview the Windows version of Movie Master and another package now in beta test. Both are screenplay processors ONLY, and run much faster than using macros within a word processor or using Scriptor to format WP files. For a comprehensive list of exhibitors at ShowBiz Expo, call their LA office and ask for details. They also have an East Coast show coming up, I believe.
