Dramatica Pro's Strengths Over Other Story Software:
- Dramatica Pro is holistic, which means writerscan approach stories from any aspect of character, theme, plot, or genre thatthey want.
- Dramatica Pro does what no other softwareprogram can do: Based on answers writers give to story questions, it cantell the writers things about their stories that the writers did not tell it. This is essential when trying to work out story problems. Byanswering questions writers know about their stories, Dramatica Pro canindicate how the other parts of the story should fit together in order tosupport the choices they have made.
- Dramatica Pro is story content and subjectmatter independent. This means writers can use it for any genre, medium,and topic. That is why it is good for screenplays, novels, stageplays, TV shows and series, as well as documentaries and other unexpected uses.
- Dramatica Pro is based on the Dramatica theoryof story, which is compatible with many aspects of other popular storyparadigms, such as those of Robert McKee, Chris Vogler, Syd Field, Linda Seger,Michael Hauge, John Truby, Dara Marks, Aristotle and others.
- Dramatica Pro is equally useful for storycreation as it is for story analysis.
- For serious writers, Dramatica Pro is mostcomprehensive tool for developing story structure and understanding the innerworkings of story available.
- StoryGuide: While most ofDramatic Pro is holistic, the StoryGuide leads writers through the process ofcreating (or analyzing) a story step-by-step. The StoryGuide begins withthe story's title, moves through creating characters, developing the plot andthemes, and ends up with building a step outline of the story. Ithas three levels, each level adding depth to the development of the story.
- Structure Templates: Dramatica Pro comes with three preset structures templates: Screenplay,Novel, and Short Story. These templates give writers a jump start byhaving a set of character archetypes and general suggestions for a beat outlineof the story included.
- Story Engine: The story enginelets writers make story structure choices and see the effects of those choiceson the other parts of the story structure immediately.
- Character Building: The build characters window lets writers give specific story functions tothe players in their story using drag-and-drop. This allows writers togive structural purpose to their characters, while also controlling theircomplexity.
- Reports: While developingstories in Dramatica Pro is at least half the benefit, another benefit are itsreports. Dramatica Pro has over two dozen reports that organize the storyelements into readable prose. Some reports focus on character, plot, ortheme, while others show an overview of the story's structure and storytelling. The Treatment report shows a beat outline or treatment, which can beexported directly to Movie Magic Screenwriter or Outline 4D. All reportsmay be printed or exported as text.
