Dramatica Story Expert is the latest version of Dramatica Pro, it is currently available for Mac, a Windows version is under development, we currently do not have a release date available, once we do we will post it in our website, newsletter and social media pages. Here is a list of differences between Dramatica Story Expert and Dramatica Pro.

 

Dramatica Story Expert improvements over Dramatica Pro

  • WHAT'S NEW?
  • PROJECT OVERVIEW: The project overview shows you your story at a glance. It lets you identify your story's title, author, logline, and brief synopsis. The project overview also shows you the four key threads, or throughlines, in your story. These include the "big picture" thread of the Overall Story throughline, the personal thread of the Main Character, the impact of the Influence Character, and the heart thread of the story in the Relationship throughline.

  • GISTS: Building on Dramatica Pro's outstanding question and answer system, Dramatica Story Expert lets you customize Dramatica's terminology with "gists," short descriptive phrases, so that questions conform to your writing style and the story's subject matter.

  • MASTER STORY ENGINE: One of Dramatica Story Expert's more advanced features is the new Master Story Engine. The master story engine gives you fifty-six story points with which to control the story's underlying storyform. As you make specific story point choices, Dramatica's interactive story engine shows the effect on the remaining story points. By identifying the parts of the story you know best first, the story engine automatically identifies the implied items that support your choices. Dramatica is the only system that can tell you more about your underlying story dramatics than you tell it. .

  • NEW TOPIC LISTS: StoryGuide topic lists incorporating "Dramatica for Screenwriters" techniques including Dramatica in Thirty Seconds, New Instant Dramatica, and Using the Plot Sequence Report to Create Scenes.

  • Getting Started Window, new menus, large character pictures, updated reports window, better name generator, better brainstorming tools, generate scenes command, font controls and preferences, and more.
