Automatic Subtitles
on Feb 27, 2018 at 7:00:30 am

Hi! Trying to figure out a way to take automatically generated subtitles downloaded from say the YouTube or Facebook auto-captions system as a .srt file. And then convert that to editable text layers for animation and stylising. Is there a simple way to do this? Would really love to cut down time on writing out each individual text segment, then edit them, as I do this weekly.

This is one of the videos I created with the manual technique, and the church puts out one of these a week, doesn't seem like a huge task but it takes up too much time.

Any input is appreciated!

Thanks!
Jeremy

if you search the expressions for for 'caption' or 'captioning' you'll find some basic solutions.

i think aescripts.com has some scripts to do something similar.

i also googled and found this:

never tried it, but it's free...
