Finale Business is the most easy-to-use and powerful scripting software compatible with FireOne ® firing systems. You can create and export shows as FIR files all from within Finale. If you have existing shows that you've scripted with ScriptMaker ® you can import those shows into Finale, edit and re-export them as FIR files, or just make high resolution videos for your clients. With all its capabilities, Finale Business is easily the most affordable software for scripting shows for FireOne firing systems.

Finale's drag-and-drop paradigm for visual choreography can be learned in minutes. Powerful editing features like cut-and-paste, hide/unhide, and global find and replace make scripting large shows easier and more manageable than ever before.

"We've fired dozens of displays scripted with Finale and fired with FireOne. Finale enables us to visualize the show, make adjustments easily, and send the simulation to the client for approval. Finale Inventory works seamlessly to create a smooth process between designing the show to ensure inventory is reserved and available. At any point, we can verify stock of a particular product and guarantee that to a client whether the show is in one week or one year."

"I own Pro-Fusion Pyrotechnics Limited (UK based company) and we supply professional grade fireworks and pyrotechnics to UK display companies. Recently a couple of customers mentioned they used Finale Fireworks as their primary design tool so I took a look and liked what I saw, hence, my shows are now designed within FinaleFireworks and exported to FireOne. Finale is a fantastic product, from first loading the software to my first fully scripted pyro-musical in just a couple of hours, truly a great product at an amazing price."

Peter Horley

"I just want you to know that I just ran through my first show using your voice cue firing (420 cues, fast paced) and it was absolutely brilliant. What a difference this makes. Thanks so much for bringing such an excellent product to the marketplace."

Special Features for FireOne ® Systems

Offset For Timecode
If you use timecode, you can add a time offset to the script to shift it forward or back. Depending on when you prefer to mix your timecode with your audio track, you can script your show right away without worrying about timecode and then align it when you are done.


Advanced Pin Addressing
If you want to tailor the use of your the modules' pins for specific rack configurations, Finale gives you powerful tools. For example, you can specify pins 1 - 30 are restricted to 3" chains, and split off pins 31 and 32 to be used for cakes.


Example Reports

pyrodigital 3D layout reports include rendered diagrams of your racks with pin numbers and effect names, so crews can see exactly what they are meant to setup.
