Creating Projects from Final Draft

T-SBADV-001-001

Storyboarding and script writing go hand-in-hand. Storyboard Pro lets you use your Final Draft script to create a new Storyboard Pro project. This feature is a time saver as it handles the creation of scenes and panels, as well as inserting all the text in the proper captions automatically.

If you are working with version 7 of Final Draft, you must use Final Draft Tagger to generate the *.xml file needed to use this feature. After you have produced your export, follow the steps to create a project from a Final Draft script.

NOTE: Final Draft 8 uses a new file format, *.fdx, which can be imported directly into Storyboard Pro, as opposed to the older *.fdr, which needs to be exported from Final Draft Tagger to generate an *.xml file.
