About This Software

MovieWriterPro was designed to increase screenplay writing speed without taking care of script formatting.

With its powerful rendering engine, MovieWriterPro is able to change scripting style with one click. You can now give the producers the script they want in the format they want. MovieWriterPro also speeds up the writing of characters and places. It assists the user in avoiding mistakes and can replace any name or location everywhere in the script without any effort.

If you think your simple text editor is enough, try MovieWriterPro once. After a short time, you'll see everything this software can offer you. With more time and increased motivation, you only have to focus on your story and can let your imagination run wild!

The PC version of Final Draft is possibly the most comprehensive bit of kit for embarking on this screenwriting malarky, but MovieWriterPro is worth having as a backup, or even as a cheaper alternative. Oddly enough, it loads up with a hideously written demo. The first thing to do is erase it, as it appears to be written by someone who has just emptied a tin of alphabetti spaghetti all over your monitor. But once you remove the graffiti, MovieWriterPro does have all the nice little features which are very helpful to those of us who are terrible at organising their work. Simple things such as character profiles, backgrounds, objectives etc. are all neatly catagorised so the author can drop in and out and tweak / save progress with relative ease. All the basics for screenplay writing are drawn from the rather simple, yet effective template. You can insert 'INT.', 'EXT', 'DAY', 'NIGHT', 'LOCATION' etc. into each portion of text with simple clicks of the mouse. Stuff like that might sound marginal, but it does help speed things up. You can use this software without the need for any extensive tutorial, so it's basically straightforward. I can't say I'd use only this to write a screnplay, as that would involve being stuck at the monitor too long, and that apllies to the desktop version of Final Draft too. I personally find using the iPad version of Final Draft the most practical, although it's features are limited. But I would recommend MovieWriterPro as a helpful assistant, as you can keep plenty of helpful information nicely and neatly filed, for any project.

I'm fairly disappointed with this program. It's good for put together concepts in an organized fashion however with no tutorials, few features and little knowledge on how traditional scripting is done you can't create much of a story. I'd wait til' this gets some updates, other then the spellcheck feature. (if it ever does.) If that happens my verdict will likely change. But I simply can't recommend this to anyone.

EDIT: Before I say anything, a bit of context: A while ago the creator of this program messaged me saying he saw my review and wanted my opinion on where I should improve. So I wrote up a little rant about what was confusing, what was broken etc., and I have since found that many those problems have been fixed. (There is still no immediately visible tutorial however if you fiddle a bit with it you'll find a link to a tutorial on there website, which is actually quite informative.) I now believe the creators are dedicated to this project I think it has much potential.

I paid $30.00 for this tool that I could have made in Visual Studio 2012 (I am a programmer). It is not only made with bad English grammar, but has a lot of unhandeled errors which will crash the program in the middle of useage. I may not have that much time on with this program, but I can tell you that I have explored the aspects of it. There is no tutorial to read off of either, so it is all mainly figuring it out.

For $30.00, try to stick to another program.

I'm very much a beginner at writing scripts for films, but this is a very, very good thing to have. I bought it the other night, and have been working feverishly at the script I've been brainstorming for the last couple of years. The preset functions (auto-adding action/dialogue cues, etc) are a major time saver, and being able to see how it would look on a PDF before printing out helps to ensure the script has that professional touch.

The price is what caught my eye, and the ease of use makes me very happy to check this program out.

I don't know of what else is out there. I've seen some pretty expensive stuff, but this has exactly what I was looking for. I'd recommend this for anyone.

MovieWriterPro is a brilliant utility for any soon-to-be screen writer, if you are interested in script-writing then I highly recommend buying this software. The company is really helpful in terms of technical support, so that is one huge plus. An easy 10/10. Get this software, you will not regret it.
