Future Development of Celtx
Work on the new version of the Celtx desktop software is going well. Among other things, they are adding support for Novels, a new design for the Media and Breakdown sidebar, and tackling some of the remaining bugs.
New export options will enable you to more easily share data from a Celtx Project to your team. Celtx hopes to ship version 3.0 just before (or just after) the New Year.
Mobile – Celtx Studios Integration
The Celtx Studios will soon support opening scripts and sketches directly to the iPad/iPhone.
Edits made to either type of file, while mobile, will get saved back to the Project in the Studio, providing a much better experience for Studio users.
Mobile – Celtx Script
They are adding support for additional templates (eg. AV and Stageplays) to the Celtx Script app. These too will work directly from a Celtx Studio.
As always, Celtx is keen on receiving feedback. In the case of ClipSketch they have a dedicated email address for any suggestions – firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any other suggestions, like how you think they should integrate the mobile apps with Celtx and Celtx Studios, or what new features you would like to see added to the Celtx desktop software, please chime in with whatever you think would help – email@example.com
