Designed for writers by writers, this download of StoryO 2 from Jungle Software provides writers with a way to outline their story in broad strokes and then flesh out the details later. StoryO 2 does not force specific writing methods, but instead allows each writer to design their own paradigms and environments that support their preferred ways of organizing ideas and approach for each story.
StoryO 2 will allow users to enter ideas on electronic index cards, rearrange and attach them to multiple sequences and timelines, and develop plot points, multiple story arcs, and characters. It supports importing and exporting with screenplays created in Final Draft 8, exporting of pre-production information to Gorilla and Chimpanzee film production software, and can also export screenplays to Movie Magic Screenwriter, Microsoft Word, and other word processors.
StoryO 2 is compatible with Windows 8.1 (Standard and Pro), 7 (SP1 Ultimate, Professional, and Home Premium), and Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9. It includes two authorizations.
Each timeline can be broken up into segments that can be used as acts, chapters or any "segmented" measurement of time in the story. Each segment then contains sequences (a collection of events) and each sequence contains index cards (the events themselves). StoryO provides a virtual sandbox where you can organize index cards, sequences, and segments to make up multiple scenarios for the timeline. Using this methodology, you'll find it simple to set up paradigms for virtually any type of storytelling. Start from the beginning, middle, or end and work any way you wish to organize your ideas
Attach pictures and characters and other detailed information for a particular event or piece of the story on an index card. As you arrange the index cards into various orders within a sequence or move them to a different sequence altogether, you can save the different ordered index cards to come up with multiple storylines.
