Scrivener seems like a pretty good software for a writer, but I have few special needs I have not found in it… either they don’t exist, or I’m just can’t find them. I write scripts for Visual Novel game, and those scripts are also used for Voice Over production. Actors do their own recording(s), so those scripts have guidance for the desired tone of voice and mood. VO actors price their work using word count, so that’s something I need to calculate. So… can Scrivener:
Have a word count per actor appearing in a script, with some easy way? And don’t say that select each line and check that… that’s worse than what I do now, deleting temporarily everything else than the lines I need to have a word count. There must a better way.
Have some information (blocks of text) that I can easily toggle off/on for the export to a .PDF. I want to have the acting guidance for a specific character and corresponding VO actor, but I do not want to have the the characters guidance visible - that’s just clutter. Currently I’m do the script, and save different versions of it to all actors in it, deleting that other actor guidance manually.
So… help? Can I do these things in Scrivener? Or is there other writing software out there that could do this?
