Can I import scripts from Final Draft or Movie Magic?
Final Draft

Yes, Movie Outline can import your script directly from Final Draft 8's xml file format (.fdx) by selecting this from the Import Options window.

Movie Magic Screenwriter

Yes, but not directly. You first need to export or save your scripts as a plain text file (.txt) without the layout formatting. Then select Import from the File Menu and your scripts can be imported into Movie Outline either into one step or split up into separate steps. Movie Outline will automatically analyze the text and format it into screenplay layout.
