Major new scheduling & budgeting additions to on line Celtx

Posted by Phil On November - 13 - 2013

Feature-rich budgeting and scheduling tools have been added to Celtx  Edge online workspaces, so you can now do :

– scriptwriting
– storyboarding
– breakdown
– shot list
– scheduling
– budgeting
– cast and crew reports

I’ve used Celtx for short films in preference to Movie Magic Scheduling as it is directly linked to the screenplay.  So script changes are immediately reflected in all the production documents. However the scheduling process has been very primitive and clunky up till now.
I’ve had to export to Excel and than back again.  But the new scheduling looks to be a great leap forward and if the integrated budgeting works it will be a godsend.
I’ll let you know how I get on with it.
My first attempt to use the scheduling strip board didn’t seem to work on a tablet. Scrolling started to move the strips around. But maybe it will work better on a laptop.
