Cards outlining software

Postby ultrablox » Thu Sep 29, 2016 9:13 am

Studying screenplay writing craft with hollywood handbooks and writing a few screenplays I faced necessity of outlining stage. I used different methods (outlining lists, pictures, Visio drawings and others), different software (Final Draft, Save the Cat, Visio, Scrivener and others), but finally came to paper cards.

But because I am a professional software developer, I've automated the process with wroting a specialised software for myself. I supposed it can be used only for screenplay outlining, but a few my friends-writers tested it, and now they actively use it. Thus, I want to share it with you.

Official site: http://ultraoutliner.com/ Here you can find links to download the program (free) and read documentation online.

Some screenshots:

Feel free to contact me. I will appriciate if you found bug or have some interesting ideas, or you simply have some questions which are not faced in documentation. You can use forum, support email or just write in this theme.

Try, use, enjoy!

will take a look

have looked at software of various sorts but never found one i really like

for now
what is faster better cheaper easier is using cards on a big table top
i can see it ALL at a glance
and they are easy to move around and sequence logically very easily

the one problem that all software has had is that i can not see EVERYTHING at once which i find critical to being able to work faster better easier to organise things

My idea was exactly to model a "big table". The problem is only how a card look in a small scale. But if you'll have any ideas, I'll be glad to discuss them.

Just learned about a new software called 'Snowflake', based on the 'Snowflake' method of story organization. It's not ground-shaking in what it does but I think its a nice little tool for beginning writers. It organizes and develops story elements in a progressive manner.
