arseneau77 will become famous soon enough

Is there a "trick" to determining roughly how many scripted pages a concept/pitch/outline/synopsis will translate into?

I know it depends on a lot of factors (like the style of the writer, etc) but I guess basically, what I'm asking is: say you need to have an 8 page script...or a 12 page script...or a 64 page script...Is there a way, in the ideas process to go "okay...that's an 8 page idea" or "that's a 64 page idea"? Or does it all just come down to experience?

EDIT: Okay, maybe comparing an 8-page idea to a 64-page idea is obvious...so say an 8-page vs a 12-page vs a 16-page then?
