I have been asked to get a program used for scriptwriting by a company I work for in order to be able to continue working with them. The program is called Final Draft and I have been told that it is available as a free download. I have attempted with emule but only got the trial version. Any suggestions? TIA

The only legitimate free release is the demo. If you do decide to buy the program, make sure you get the right version: there's one version for standard movie/TV scripts, and a different one for two-column video scripts. Be sure you know which your client wants you to use. I almost ordered the wrong one last year.

Each version costs about $200, so you'll need to evaluate whether it's worth spending that much to buy a program that only one of your clients requires.
