Overview of the workspace
The Captions and Graphics workspace consists of the Text panel, including the Transcript and Captions tabs.
You can auto-transcribe your video in the Transcript tab and then generate your captions, and edit them in the Captions tab and the Program Monitor.
Captions have their own track on the Timeline panel. You can stylize your captions with the design tools in the Essential Graphics panel.
The easiest and fastest way to create captions is to start with a transcript of your video. While importing your media, you can enable Automatic transcription under Import settings. To further access the transcription settings, do the following:
Select the ... icon in the Transcript tab to open Generate static transcript dialog box to set your transcription options.
- Language: You can select the language in the video and download the language pack if necessary.
- Speaker labeling: You can choose to separate or not separate the speakers in the video.
- Audio analysis: You can transcribe audio clips tagged as Dialogue using the Essential Sound panel or transcribe audio from a specific audio track.
- Transcribe in point to out point only: You can specify to transcribe the audio within that range of marked In and Out points.
- Merge output with existing transcription: You can insert the auto-transcription into an existing one when transcribing between specific In and Out points. Selecting this option creates continuity between the existing transcription and the new one.
Edit the speakers in your transcription
In the source transcript, select the ... icon next to the speaker.
Select Edit speaker name.
In the Edit speakers dialog box, add the name of the speakers to the transcript.
Find and replace text in your transcription
Type in the term in the Search text field and all the instances will be highlighted in the transcription.
Use the Up and Down arrows to navigate through all instances of the search term.
Select the Replace icon and type in a replacement text.
To replace only a selected instance of the search term, select Replace. To replace all instances of the search term, select Replace All.
Other transcription options
You have other options to work with transcripts. Click the ... icon in the Transcript tab of the Text panel.
- Re-transcribe sequence: Use this option to change your edit.
- Export: Use this option to create a .prtranscript file, a .txt file, or a CSV file.
- Import: Use this option in collaborative workflows where you must import a static or corrected transcript from another user.
- Show speakers: Use this option to display speaker names in the transcript.
- Show untranscribed sources: Use this option to show scenes that still need to be transcribed.
- Enable auto-scrolling: Use this option to auto-scroll the transcript while playing the sequence in the Timeline.
- Pauses: Use this option to display pauses as ellipses in the dialog or set the pause length.
- Spell check: Use this option to check spellings or access spell check settings.
Once you're happy with your transcript, you can turn it into captions on your Timeline.
- Caption preset: Choose amongst the given options or opt for Subtitle Default which is suitable for most use cases.
- Format: Select the type of caption format you want for your video.
- Stream: You can specify the broadcast streams for some caption formats (such as Teletext).
- Style: You can select from your saved caption styles.
- Length, duration, and gap between captions: You can set the length of characters, fix the duration for each line of caption text, and specify gaps between captions.
- Lines: You can choose to keep your caption in a single line or wrap it into two lines.
Stylize your captions
After adding the captions, you can make updates to the caption design through the Essential Graphics panel.
