We have all been there, you got some great interviews and you are finally starting post-production. But no time to paper edit, let alone to work with transcriptions, and crafting the story out of the footage becomes a struggle, like wrestling with a bear. This is where autoEdit comes in, to simplify and speed-up video editing interviews.
It’s a digital paper editing software. For those less familiar with it, a paper edit is a script made from a selection of lines from the transcriptions of interviews.
With autoEdit, you can analyse your transcripts and mark them with tags
and create a paper edit,
that you can then export as an EDL.
You can then open in the editing software of your choice to reconnect the corresponding video into a sequence,
and finish working on your rough-cut assembly.
For the transcriptions, autoEdit, takes .sbv and .srt subtitles files.
and the suggested workflow is to use youtube semi-automated captioning, to get a first draft of the timecoded transcriptions, that you can then proofread. Google/Youtube is very accurate at putting timecodes at the end of sentences, which is one less thing to do.
