Automated speech to text layers in After Effects
on May 7, 2019 at 8:03:02 pm

Hi

I have a fairly long video I made in after effects that I want to put subtitles on. Now previously I have been adding text layers which is time consuming. Does anyone know of a way to automate the subtitling process or any alternative ways?

NO. It doesn't exist.

Adobe tried creating text from speech a few years back in Premiere Pro, but gave it up as a bad job. They haven't pursued it since then.

The Youtube subtitler tool tries do to a text to speech, you can probably export that data.

this may be helpful, it's an expression that changes your text layer based on layer markers - goes inside source text of a text layer.

txt = value;
n = 0;
if (thisComp.marker.numKeys > 0){
n = thisComp.marker.nearestKey(time).index;
if (thisComp.marker.key(n).time > time) n--;
if (n > 0) txt = thisComp.marker.key(n).comment;
}
txt


in this example, i'm referencing a layer called CASTER01 that has layer markers:

txt = value; n = 0;
if (thisComp.layer("CASTER01").marker.numKeys > 0){
n = thisComp.layer("CASTER01").marker.nearestKey(time).index;
if (thisComp.layer("CASTER01").marker.key(n).time >
time) n--;
if (n > 0) txt = thisComp.layer("CASTER01").marker.key(n).comment; }
txt

You could use a service like Transcriptive to handle the speech-to-text part:

Then use one of Premiere's captions workflows to burn in your captions as subtitles:

Hi there. If you have to put text on after effect. You should creat a new project to manage your text. And In the final COMP. Put the text comp on your final Comp. you need make sure your text comp is longer enough,then you can cut it

But i am always render the text comp and import to PR soft. Unless you only got few more text. In PR it’s very easy to edit the text layer. Hope that can help you.
