So do you wanna write?

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, the Celtx program is awesome. Not only does it help me work as a team and manage the production aspects of my scripts and staging. It also has a very organized and easy to use interface. The production tools are absolutely fantastic.

Pros

It doesn't matter if you are a student, an amateur, or a teacher. This program, used even by great screenwriters, is excellent. Celtx helps you to correctly divide the sequences, to space the dialogues, to easily indicate the entrance of the characters, the general objective is that you concentrate on the creativity, and the program takes care of the formatting. Scripts can be shared from within the program to harmonize teamwork, and can also be sent in text (.txt) or pdf format via e-mail. The texts remain stored in the cloud, which makes it great for possible loss of physical devices.

Cons

There are not many cons to this program. Perhaps the most significant one is the price, but this depends on who you are and by this I mean: if what you are looking for is a casual immersion into the world of film writing (among others) perhaps it is not the best option, at least I would take it as an unprofitable investment. Taking into account that its costs range from twenty to thirty dollars. But out of that and some small "bugs" in its mobile version. This program is great, not for nothing it is chosen.

Final Draft seems better

Reviewed 6 months ago

The people I have talked to are nice but are to expensive and charge way to much.

Pros

The flow of writing is easier then most for a new comer it would be easier with the free version,

Cons

I am a small studio starting off to make shows and the charged me about $2000 for a years access with 5 seats for collaboration and we couldn’t afford to keep it and lost some of our scripts in the downgrade. Final draft is cheaper and you buy the license for $200 and don’t need to buy anything else unless you want to upgrade

Complete Story Development System

Reviewed 5 years ago

Story Management in one place and having all assets in one place in the cloud.

Pros

I love the following: - the ability to change formats (from novel to screenplay to graphic novel to stage play) - this is the most unbelievable benefit of Celtx - a one-stop shop for story development - the ability to storyboard your story FIRST before writing the screenplay - the addition of graphic novel format - the addition of GEM, to write and develop stories for gamers - the self-reassurance that you get when you purchase the studio edition; now, you are not just JOE, you are JOE STUDIOS! - having all your files in the cloud per project

Cons

Celtx is powerful for teamwork and collaboration, but their focus is NOT on individuals. You can use it for screenwriting and gaming, but the cost to you as an individual is unwarranted because you can't get a stripped-down version, you have to get the same package that entire TEAMS purchase, which can seem unfair to individuals.

The most amazing screenwriting application.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The software is really easy to use once you get used to the shortcut keys. It's like working magic while writing your screenplay and the output is on point. I can export my screenplay as pdf as well as txt for final draft.

Cons

The formatting options are really low. I can't change font type, font size, and spacing between the sentences.

Vendor response

Hi Arfa! All our formatting is industry standard, so the ability to change font type, size, and spacing isn't included in our Studio for that reason! If you'd like to chat more about industry standard formatting, our Support Team can send along some more info; you can reach them at support@celtx.com.

Writing on the go

Reviewed a year ago

I have write two or three scripts with Celtx, I like it because is an option for students and people that do not have the money to use bigger software and this one is a totally proffesional and affordable option. Also it has acces to do other production files that are so neccesary.

Pros

I love that celtx is a software you can use online, this is great so you don´t miss your files in case you dont have your computer or your information. The panel it has to see all the projects is a great feature that other softwares do not have.

Cons

You need to log in, is not like a software on the computer as other ones.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review, Evelyn! So glad to hear that you're finding the Studio useful. If you have any more feedback you'd like to share with us, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Support Team at support@celtx.com. They'd love to hear from you!

Excellent, affordable product for creating entertainment

Reviewed 4 years ago

Easy of use, functionality, value.

Pros

Well, it's great that they offer a free version and multiple paid options. The software is easy to use and doesn't bother with a lot of unnecessary "bells and whistles." I feel like the simplicity of the software helps me focus on the content.

Cons

Sometime the interface is annoying, especially when trying to switch between formats, e.g., scene direction vs. dialogue.
