Film makers whose productions don't start with a written script can do one of the following to get more accurate content analysis results.

  • Use reference scripts containing dialogue similar to the project's recorded content

  • Manually create transcriptions of the interview


  1. Create a transcript of your finished video, which functions much like a script.

  2. Import the transcript as a script into a new Adobe Story project.

  3. Break text into scenes that could be major points in the video. For example, create a scene for every topic in the presentation.

  4. Add additional metadata for each section, such as a short description of the scene's key points. For example, "Newton's laws of mechanics".

  5. Create subclips from the finished video to match the scenes you've outlined.

  6. Export your Adobe Story script as an ASTX file, and import both the script and the subclips into OnLocation. In OnLocation, the script data is used to create placeholder clips that you can then attach to the clips from the finished asset

  7. Add additional metadata, such as shot-specific metadata and shot locations to your clips.

  8. To attach metadata from your Adobe Story to your clips, drag each clip to its shot placeholder. The metadata is automatically linked to the video, and embedded into it.

  9. Import the OnLocation project into Adobe Premiere Pro, and run content analysis to synchronize the script to footage to enable full, time-accurate search.
