Video: Exporting scripts

When you work in Story--whether you're working in a browser or working on your desktop application with Story Plus--the things you are working on are stored in the Cloud, on some server at some place in some unknown location in the world. But sometimes you might want to take these files out of the Cloud and put them on your hard drive. So there are multiple ways to do that, and multiple kinds of things which you can then save. Let's start with the schedule, I mentioned this before but I will just remind you. Here's the schedule, and if you want to save this as a file. You have the Schedule open, go File, and you have Save, Save As, and Save to Disk.

Exporting scripts

When you work in Story--whether you're working in a browser or working on your desktop application with Story Plus--the things you are working on are stored in the Cloud, on some server at some place in some unknown location in the world. But sometimes you might want to take these files out of the Cloud and put them on your hard drive. So there are multiple ways to do that, and multiple kinds of things which you can then save. Let's start with the schedule, I mentioned this before but I will just remind you. Here's the schedule, and if you want to save this as a file. You have the Schedule open, go File, and you have Save, Save As, and Save to Disk.

Save just saves this in the Cloud. Save As saves a version this in the Cloud, Save to Disk is the only way you can get this to your hard drive. Click Save to Disk. It saved this in ST doc file, story doc file. We gave you a story doc file for the script and so this is just another compatible file that you can then open up inside Story later. So we will just Cancel out of that. Down to this. These guys are basically just easy text files, nothing really special about these reports. So saving them you have more options. Let's have that open, go File again you have Save, Save As in the Cloud.

Save to Disk gives you the choice of saving it as an ST doc file, again, that's compatible with Story. Down below, you have an Export option. Three Export options, HTM--which is basically HTML--MSWord Compatible (.htm) file. Adobe PDF acrobat file, and Text Documents. So those are few more options here for this particular kind of file, which you would expect. Finally, for a Script you have more options that that even. If I go to File, see we get the same, Save and Save As in the cloud, Save to Disk creates that ST doc file again.

But the Export has more options. I'm going to here and take a look at that, you have got astx. If you want to work with your script in Premiere Pro such that you can attach the script to a clip then use the speech analysis to connect spoken words in the dialog in the clip with the script, then you export it as an ASTX file. We're going to talk about that any different movie, or you can Export As a PDF, acrobat file, Text, a spreadsheet even, and then these two guys are the two main script writing programs out there.

Final Draft and Movie Magic, so you can export in those formats as well. So multiple formats when you are exporting a script. So those are the various ways that you could export documents from Story to your hard drive.
