Digital Anarchy's Transcriptive, an audio-to-text transcription plugin for Premiere Pro (Mac & Windows), was updated last fall, and it has been hard at work fine-tuning and adding more features. Let's take a look at some of the highlights.
- Clip Mode lets editors use the transcript to make edits, which makes it easier and faster to find the best part of an interview to use. After marking an in and out in the transcript, you can put that into the video. Transcriptive has a video highlighting it, which you can watch here.
- Transcriptive doesn't need footage to be in a sequence to be transcribed. Instead, you can select clips in the Project panel in Premiere Pro.
- PowerSearch is now free, and lets you search through all of your project's clips and sequences, with results of the dialogue you're looking.
- Collaboration is even easier now, by sharing videos and transcripts from Premiere Pro to Transcriptive.com. Your producer or client will be able to make edits on what they like, don't want (strike-through), and add comments. The final transcript is sent back to Premiere for editing.
- And more features, including saving the transcript to just about any video or audio file; strike-through text, which is great if you don't want to delete a line of dialogue that a producer or other editor may want to consider; locking an edit; syncing transcript to text; and much more.
As the team at Digital Anarchy continue to update Transcriptive, it has become a very powerful and accurate choice for editors and producers who have to comb through hours of interviews to find the right sound bites (97% accuracy). With the ability to transcribe in Premiere Pro or on their Transcriptive site, this is a great option for anyone who needs fast and accurate transcriptions.
