Best way to integrate transcripts with FCP X?
on Feb 3, 2016 at 10:20:05 pm

I have transcripts for a lot of clips in a feature length doc I'm working on. Is there any way to integrate the transcripts either into the clip info or have a link between the clip and the transcript file? I want it to be easy to see the transcript while working if that's possible.

If this isn't possible, anyone have work flows they wanna share?

thanks,
Noam

Hello Noam,

As Shane said: Lumberjack can be an option, CatDV as well.

But that's probably not the solution you want at a first glimpse.
I think you are looking for a solution to view the transcript in FCPX. Tell me if I'm wrong.

In latter case have a look whether either of them has the option to add new metadata to the clips which can be made somehow visible in FCPX.
Unfortunately I don't know a lot about any of those apps.

As a temporary solution you might create a kind of "home brew solution". Finally there are 2 of these.

The simple one.
In the event browser make the column "Notes" visible, same in timeline index.
Now you can paste your transcripts into these fields it needed. Though they are still not visible while editing.
To change that (in case you want) attach a Title to the clip, copy the content from the notes field and pate into the title's text.
The advantage of this method is that this text is searchable in the timeline and timeline index.

The second one.
In Inspector switch to the Info view. Select a setting i.e. General. Add a new custom entry. Type in for example "Caption Data" for both fields.
Save the view under a new name.
Then paste the data into field in the Inspector.
Proceed as above.
The advantage here: the data will be embedded into the clips metadata. But they are not searchable.

Andresa,

You are exactly right. That's precisely what I'm looking for. I don't need it in the timeline. I just want it in FCP X so I don't need to go to another program each time I want to look at a transcript. Putting it in metadata should, hopefully, work!

Hi,

there is a way to achieve something similar using Annotation Transcriber. Check here :

hope this helps

Definitively a very good tool. But in Noam's case not the right one, since you loose the information once you drop a clip in the timeline.
