Macworld Buying Advice
A worthy addition to an excellent software range, Contour helps to shape your raw creative juices into something more appetising and hopefully marketable. You'll still need some screenplay formatting software to make good your initial hard work, but given time and effort Contour serves as a solid foundation upon which to build your celluloid dreams.
