Directors NoteBook Software has updated Directors NoteBook Pro and Directors NoteBook Standalone (SA) to version 1.5.2.
Directors NoteBook was originally released for TV commercial directors. It functions as a digital “project notebook” for organizing information needed during preproduction, production and post-production. Directors NoteBook SA is only available for Mac OS X; Directors Notebook Pro will also run on Mac OS 9.x.
FileMaker Pro 5.0 or greater is required for the pro version, but not the standalone edition. Directors NoteBook Pro has customization and multi-user collaboration features that the SA version lacks.
With version 1.5.2, the software (both editions) gives you the option to choose your title from a pull down menu — Director, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Unit Production Manager, Unit Director, Visual Effects Supervisor, Creative Director, Production Designer, Art Director, or Decorator — or add you own title in any language. Other new features in the releases are alpha numeric shot numbers and a new Zoom feature in Presentation Mode for Bluetooth remotes like Salling Clicker.
The 1.5.2 upgrades are free to all registered users of the respective products. For new users, a single user license for Directors NoteBook SA is US $169. A single user license for Directors NoteBook Pro is $250; production company licenses (for up to 10 users) are $1,000. Demo versions are available at the Directors NoteBook Software Web site.
