FINAL DRAFT™ TAGGER UPDATE RELEASED
Tagger™ Update Provides New Time-Saving Advantages
CALABASAS, CA – Sept. 10, 2007 – Final Draft, Inc., publisher of Final Draft®, the #1-selling scriptwriting software, today announced the immediate availability of Final Draft Tagger version 1.2.2, a separate application included when you purchase and install Final Draft. Tagger allows the script to be taken to the next step - breaking it down into a shooting schedule so it can be properly budgeted and prepped for production. One of the most time-consuming tasks for production managers and AD's is breaking down a script to create a production schedule.
"Tagger provides huge time savings over breaking down the script manually. This latest update may be even more significant in terms of time savings. We've really looked at the repeated tasks people have to do and have made the process much more efficient for the user," says Kirsten Thayer, Final Draft Product Manager.
Tagger is also friendlier than other applications, as it provides an output that can be read by anything that accepts XML making it a much more collaborative tool.
"There's a great advantage to having a bridge between Final Draft and all the scheduling products used by the industry. We support exports to EP Scheduling, Gorilla software and some newer products like Reel Logix with its latest update (version 5.2.) of the 'Reel Production Calendar',” states Thayer.
What’s new about Tagger?
- Version 1.2.2 is compatible with Microsoft Vista.
- You now have the ability to select multiple items at once to add to your categories.
- Time-saving changes allow you to minimize repetitive steps.
- More preferences such as the ability to turn off ‘auto-tagging’ upon import.
- Additional views of your data to help ensure that your scenes have everything tagged.
- Improved text selection options for tagging elements in a scene.
