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.
Use StoryO's built-in topics and questions to help you outline your story. Create your own topics and questions, or use the built-in standard set of topics and questions. Identify selected questions as "what if" to play around with varied story lines and outcomes
Create story timelines with color-coded segments and break them down into sequences. Drag and drop sequences to re-order the timeline, then save each sequence to create multiple versions of a timeline.
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
Use index cards to record scenes, events, plot points, and other details, then resize, arrange, and save them in various orders within a sequence.
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.
View index cards by sequence/segment or view all the index cards attached to a particular character
Create characters and enter background information. Attach character images using StoryO's built-in library or use your own images. StoryO comes with over 138 built-in character images - from heros to villains and everything in between. StoryO 2 has added new character packs categories including Professionals, Military, Heroes & Villains, and Fantasy, Aliens, & Monsters
Create relationships between characters and note how they are related and how they affect one another throughout the story
Add slug lines, action, characters, dialogue, and transitions to your scene index cards using industry standard methods, notations, and formatting for screenplays. You can also modify dialog and other elements right within the Index Card
Pitch Your Project
When you're ready, use the Pitch module to bring together elements from your index cards such as captions, characters, and images to create a visual slide presentation to pitch your project
Share StoryO Information with Final Draft, Gorilla, and Other Software
Import your screenplay from Final Draft using the .FDX format. This brings in all the necessary screenplay elements and allows you to view and re-organize your screenplay in the Timeline module in Index Card format. From there, you can re-order or edit scenes with ease and then export back to Final Draft when ready.
Export your index cards in screenplay format to Final Draft, Movie Magic Screenwriter, Microsoft Word, or another word processor. Export pre-production story elements to Gorilla or Chimpanzee film production software, and export standard-formatted story information to Microsoft Word or another word processor.
In addition to the screenplay format exports, StoryO contains a dozen reports that help you view your ideas in multiple ways. Reports include:
Character List, Character Profile, Index Cards in Report Format, Index Cards in Timeline Order, Index Card Pictures, Project Group Info and Episodes, Project Information Sheet, Screenplay Format, Sequences 2 Line Boxes, Sequences Full Description, Story Outline, and Timeline with Sequences
