Hi, I have some interviews in Final Cut which I need to export so they can be transcribed and logged.
Is there a way to export from the timeline with the original wild vision time code included on screen?
Bourke, this is all new to me and probably not what I'm after. Is it some kind of automated transcribing software? I've never heard of such a thing. (but curious!)
Being a small operation we transcribe all interviews ourselves the old fashioned way.
Most transcribers use dedicated software, so they can insert timecode into the document with just one keystroke (rather than having to type the entire string), perhaps combined with a macro.
(jump to the next / previous field in a spreadsheet)
To top it off, they have footpedals so they don't need to get their fingers off the keyboard, let alone touch the mouse.
(that takes way too much time)
Now the transcribing software needs to know the timecode for the file.
Thus, that must be entered manually at the start of the file, or must be inside the file 'somewhere'
Inside means either QT with a TC track, BWF (can be uncompressed or compressed), Mp3 (with the user data for artist set to TC) or other formats.
Have a look at this thing, toy with the demo and you'll get it:
