About Celtx

Celtx’s collaborative features allow users to work in teams, control document sharing, and manage feedback easily with comment features and user mention tagging. Files and projects can be shared in-studio, meaning less file sharing by email and more file version control. When it’s time to shoot, production calendars can be easily exported to Google Calendar while call sheets can be exported to Google Sheets or distributed directly from Celtx.

A Screenwriting Softwre For Everyone!

Celtx has really helped me to execute a lot of project. It is very easy to use. If you are a beginner screenwriter, i'd recommend you use Celtx. You don't have to worry about formatting, it handles that for you.
As a professional screenwriter, Celtx is your sure bet.

Pros

The fact that I am able to collaborate with other Writers to work on the same project is one thing I love most about Celtx.
With its cloud feature, it is impossible to lost a file as all works are automatically saved to the cloud.
The tips on the blog section is another feature of Celtx i love so much. Those tips help you overcome "Writer's Block".
The software is pretty simple to navigate and use.
It is available for both PC and Mobile Phone users.

Cons

I really don't have anything negative about Celtx. But they should integrate "TITLE PAGE" feature in the mobile version. Unlike the PC version, mobile phone version don't allow writing "Title Page" in your screenplay.

Response from Celtx

Thanks for the love, Osarumwense! We'll be sure to pass along your feedback on adding Title Page functionality to our mobile apps.

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.

Overall Celtx, in my opinion, is a great tool to manage projects and scripts

Pros

Celtx is a great software. It allows me to do my scripts and project management very rapidly and efficiently.

Cons

The least I liked about this software was that sometimes when trying to export the script to pdf it gives an error but usually it's solved by restarting the application.

Final Draft seems better

Reviewed on 19/02/2022

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

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
