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.

Script writing and formatting made easy.

Reviewed on 11/12/2018

It's great for writing. The cloud service is a nice option!

Pros

If you've ever written a script, be it for a film, tv show, comedy skit, short video, etc, you know how import getting the format correct is. It helps actors read, gives space for people to take notes, is clean and familiar, and most import...it's the industry standard. You can try to fake it in basic word processing software, but you will never get it just right. Celtx helps you there immensely. Other features such as the Index Cards, character notes, etc, they really help you when trying to revise your script. It's great for a creative.

Cons

The only issue...Final Draft is still the standard. So if you want to share a work in progress, you might run into some issues with writers and producers who prefer the older ways. Also, if you come from that background, you may need to spend some time brushing up on the new ways to get things done in Celtx.

I have write two or three scripts with Celtx, I like it because is an option for students and people that do not have the money to use bigger software and this one is a totally proffesional and affordable option. Also it has acces to do other production files that are so neccesary.

Pros

I love that celtx is a software you can use online, this is great so you don´t miss your files in case you dont have your computer or your information. The panel it has to see all the projects is a great feature that other softwares do not have.

Cons

You need to log in, is not like a software on the computer as other ones.

Response from Celtx

Complete Story Development System

Story Management in one place and having all assets in one place in the cloud.

Story Management in one place and having all assets in one place in the cloud.

Pros

I love the following:
- the ability to change formats (from novel to screenplay to graphic novel to stage play) - this is the most unbelievable benefit of Celtx
- a one-stop shop for story development
- the ability to storyboard your story FIRST before writing the screenplay
- the addition of graphic novel format
- the addition of GEM, to write and develop stories for gamers
- the self-reassurance that you get when you purchase the studio edition; now, you are not just JOE, you are JOE STUDIOS!
- having all your files in the cloud per project

Cons

Celtx is powerful for teamwork and collaboration, but their focus is NOT on individuals. You can use it for screenwriting and gaming, but the cost to you as an individual is unwarranted because you can't get a stripped-down version, you have to get the same package that entire TEAMS purchase, which can seem unfair to individuals.
