What is a CONTOUR file?

Movie script created by Contour, a program used to create screenplay outlines; stores written ideas according to the Contour story development philosophy; used for storing the step-by-step screenplay structure of a movie.

More Information

CONTOUR files are saved in an XML format. They can also be exported to an .RTF file using the software.

The Contour philosophy defines screenplays from four main questions:

  1. Who is your main character?
  2. What is he trying to accomplish?
  3. Who is trying to stop him?
  4. What happens if he fails?
The philosophy also moves the main character through four distinct archetypes: orphan (act 1), wanderer (act 2), warrior (act 3), and martyr (act 4).

NOTE: Mariner Software has discontinued Contour.
