Novel to film script?

I’d like to try turning my novel into a film script. I’m thinking the best way to do this in Scrivener is to open the novel in one window and then open Scrivener again in blank scriptwriting mode, then I can compare one with the other as I proceed. Not having used the scriptwriter mode yet, have any Scrivener users tried doing this with their novels before and can maybe offer tips?

I would recommend having both in the same project - if you’ve written the novel in Scrivener, maybe import it into a new project to keep your existing project clean though. Then split the editor and have the novel documents open in one pane while working on your script in the other.

All the best,
