This is Fade In, a scriptwriting software for stingy writers like me who’s tired of the bugs of Celtx. For the past three screenplays I’ve written via Celtx, it has been a headache 50% of the time – file closing suddenly without saving automatically, sequence numbering gets messed up too often, big spaces in between paragraphs appear without warning. Sabagay, Celtx is a free software, gusto ko pa, walang bug? Dami ko nga namang hinihiling.
Fade In was recommended by Jerrold Tarog – he’s the director, writer and editor of Heneral Luna, in the rare case that you haven’t heard of him. Most of my scriptwriter-friends actually suggested Final Draft – it s after all the most popular scriptwriting app. But it is 240usd!!! 15,000php??? No way. Fade In is only 80usd. Binili ko agad.
I’ve been using Fade In since this morning – I had to re-type until Sequence 9 because it doesn’t support files from Celtx. So far, I am loving it. It’s easy to understand – lalo na’t pang-Grade 3 ang comprehension skills ko sa mga pa-technology. I’ll update you! Pero sana hindi mag-skip ng numbering o bigla na lang mag-close ang software. Boo, Celtx!
