Audio visual (AV) scripts separate the audio and video components of the script into two columns. The Audio column contains information about the narrator (character) and the dialogue. The Video column describes the scene or shot corresponding to the narration in the audio column.
AV scripts are commonly used in movies with voice overs such as advertising, corporate videos, and documentaries.
Rows in AV scripts can belong to any of the following types:
Rows for scene information containing scene elements
Rows for shot information
Rows that cannot be classified as any of the above types, specified as none
Only elements relevant to AV scripts are displayed in the elements menu when you open an AV script.
Press Shift+tab to move to the previous element in the script.
In addition to the default elements that are enabled when you press Tab, the elements Parenthetical and General are present in the elements menu. The elements perform the same function as in single-column movie scripts.
Available for: Adobe Story Plus
The procedure and conditions to import or copy images into AV scripts is the same as that for multicolumn scripts. For more information, see Using images in multicolumn scripts.
When you copy content from a movie script to an AV script, the formatting is retained. Element information is retained for Character, Dialog, and Parenthetical elements. For other copied elements, Adobe Story assigns the General element.
You can import Final Draft AV 2.5 scripts into Adobe Story. The element information in the Final Draft AV Script is mapped to elements in Adobe Story.
