The help for Adobe Story (Beta) is now live!
For those who find it hard to figure why the world needs another screenplay writing software, here’s the answer. Adobe Story’s script to screen workflow ensures smooth transfer of metadata from your scripts to your movie clips to your DVDs. The metadata helps you reduce production time, increase efficiency, create engaging experiences, and cut costs. How wonderful is that!
For an in-depth understanding of how Story works, check out the following videos:

From Script to On Set Production with Adobe Story
For the next few months, you can use Adobe Story for free! I encourage every wordsmith to give it a shot. The best things in life sometimes do come for free.
A version 1.0 product is never easy, but it is remarkable what a small dedicated team can pull off when they put their heart, body, and soul into it. It is not every day that a writer gets to witness the birth of a product, pangs and all, and I consider myself very fortunate in this regard.
What a learning experience it has been! Starting with learning how to create a screenplay, to understanding the nuts and bolts of the software, to giving allowance to the software’s initial idiosyncracies, it has been one wonderful trip!
Hop on to the bandwagon people! You are not going to regret this ride.
