Celtx writing software: new beta update
There are alternatives to the ubiquitous Final Draft. In Canada, Greyfirst has been developing a clean, new tool called Celtx. As well as doing all the usual things a scriptwriting tool should do, Celtx is very focussed on the collaborative side. It enables writers to post scripts to a server for downloading, sharing and re-writing by their partners. It is available in a number of languages (the latest being Finnish, with German in the works). The new update is beta version 0.8.8 - "so we're getting closer to a 1.0 release," says Stephen Pick. For the many writers that are struggling with formatting MS Word and are hesitating before paying for professional scriptwriting software, it's worth noting that Celtx is free and comes in PC and Mac versions.
