Turbo AD a simple tour
Script Breakdown How script data is entered, printed, and scheduled with Turbo AD is explained by displaying the various screens which you would use to do these tasks. You can see the production board on screen; manipulate the day-out of days, and in general get the job done. You can use Script Scan to automatically extract breakdown data from the script file itself. If you have additional questions, just ask.
Script breakdown is simple and direct. You enter information on screen just as you would on a breakdown page. BACK There are people categories, such as cast, extras, etc. And there are thing categories .... BACK Once you have entered the information for the breakdown page, it displays in summary form: BACK Printing Once you have completed entry of script breakdown data you can immediately print out the breakdown pages, various lists (casts, props, etc), and a list of locations and sets. BACK You can customize the reports using a variety of options. BACK Schedule Scheduling the production is done using the a simulation of the standard production board. Once a header list is defined, you can display all the breakdown pages as strips, and you can easily organize them into a production schedule. BACK To associate a specific production schedule to a calendar you go to a calendar and set the production days. This process can account for complex scheduling, for holidays, and a variety of other calandering issues. BACK Once a calendar is set, you can view the result of merging calendar and production board information by viewing the Day-Out of Days. This view can take into account SAG rules on drop/pickup, paid holidays, and travel days. BACK Script Scan This is a wonderful tool, which allows you to access information directly from your copy of the script. Just load the script in, and then set the scan parameters. Script Scan will automatically collect all of the basic data of the breakdown which is in your script (Ext/Int, Set name, D/N, estimated page counts, Characters with speaking parts, etc). The information which it can not collect automatically, you will need to mark (with any word processor) and it will also collect it. BACK The analysis of the script file proceeds in part automatically and in part interactively, with you controlling what you want to mark for the breakdown pages. BACK BACK The best way to evaluate this product is to download the demo version and try it.
