    What scriptwriting programs work the best for you?  I've used and the freeware Celtx to write my scripts, and both have worked okay for me - I like Celtx much better, but PlotBot has a better collaborative process.

    What programs or websites are better for you, and why do they work the best?  Is it the program itself, or does it have to do with your process?

      I use Celtx, which I absolutely adore. Although I haven't actually tried any others, I'll admit. But Celtx certainly does everything I need it to, and I especially like the little extras like sections to create backgrounds for your characters, scene cards that you can swap around, stuff like that.

      I know there was another program that my screenwriting tutor mentioned, but its name is escaping me right now...apparently another good one to use. Damn, what was it called...

      Ah! Final Daft! That's the one. I'm unsure as to whether this is a free one, though...

    I've heard Final Draft is the best, but I only dabble in scriptwriting, so I haven't felt it necessary to plunk down the $150-300 required to get it. tongue I use Celtx and like it a lot.

    I only use

    I've written near a dozen scripts using their free online service, though I do pay the 3 month fee when I'm ready to download them as pdf or print out.  And I don't use the forum there for feedback. 

    Scriptbuddy is very easy to use, the online software does all the formatting for you.
