Final Draft AV is a full-featured word processor specifically designed for multi-column, audio/video scriptwriting. It combines powerful word processing with a variety of industry-standard formats, all in one self-contained, easy-to-use system.

Final Draft AV lines up multiple audio/video columns automatically and keeps them aligned when text is added, edited or deleted. There are no complicated commands to learn, no frustrating text boxes to deal with.

I agree with the writer below regarding Celtx. I've seen it and, someday, it will really be something special. Still has a ways to go, but Final Draft has definitely got to see it in the rearview mirror.

What's more, there is little practical use for Final Draft AV beyond the bells and whistles. You can easily - and I have done this many times on AV scripts - design a template using the column/table functions built into Microsoft Word. If you're a serious writer, by which I mean "it's about the writing", then you don't need to buy this program. If you've got some money you can burn, Final Draft AV could be fun.

Don't bother with Final Draft...CeltX is coming along nicely and already sports many of the same features as Final Draft (and a few Final Draft doesn't). CeltX is uses the Gecko rendering engine, is the product of an active and responsive development team (unlike Final Draft), and for the small-budget filmmaker (like myself), its free. So, bye bye Final Draft...nice knowing ya.
