Closed Caption look
on Apr 11, 2016 at 10:00:30 pm

Ah, we've advanced from the scrolled text of this morning's inquiry. It was such a success that my creative partner wants me to sync the text with the audio, capturing the pauses and "ughs" and "ahs", so that the text follows the rhythm of the spoken words. I can see inserting spaces in the streaming text, but this will be exceedingly slow and tedious. Any smarter solutions?

Many thanks

Sorry, not really.
I know why your partner wants you to do it -- no one's ever seen anything like it. You want to know why? It would be exceedingly slow and tedious to get it right!

Well that's what I thought. I gave it 75-80/100 for difficulty and suggested that she really needs to want the look!

Yeah, the pacing problems on something like that give me nightmares in the daytime.

Well, you MIGHT be able to do it by animating the horizontal speed of the crawl... but I'd be afraid it would make the viewer seasick. No sense in making the audience barf.

If you want synced text, it would be better to do it as simple subtitles. Speeding up and slowing down the scroll will look terrible. Scrolling text is already hard to read as is. The viewer will only be looking at the scrolling text, not the image, at that point. Or, as Dave points out, they'll not want to look at it at all.
