No, there is no option for importing text, transcript form or otherwise, to the TRANSCRIPT tab. The only import is a transcript already in the Premiere Pro proprietary format - which is only available when exported as such.

 

The work around is to modify your "Lisa only" times/text into an srt and import that as captions.

 

See these two threads as examples. But how you actrually do this will depend on what you have in your file, and whether you can use the timecodes or not. For this purpose, rt

Thanks so much Stan! Tiz what I feared.  So what I did to try and work around it was, I exported as a text file, and deleted all the other speakers and their time codes leaving only Lisa and the bites where she says something meaningful. It was a good way to familiarize myself with the transcript, but when i converted to an SRT... and brought it into premire.... it didn't line it up with the the interview accurately... it just grouped all the Subtitle Clips together instead of sprinkling them throughout the timeline at their appropriate time Codes.

There's a sort of no man's land between the transcript, which groups large blocks of text in a large time range, and captions that are short bits of text and time. Eliminating whole speakers should work, but the chances are still good that the times would be off within the transcript range for the speaker you are keeping. And it would easy to make mistakes.

 

I thought I had a couple ways to do this, but every one is tedious.

 

Best way: record Lisa to her own audio track and select only that to transcribe.

 

Duplicate the audio track, and in the copy, cut the audio up and delete so you have only Lisa, then transcribe only that track.

 

In PR in the original transcription, delete all the speakers you don't want. Uh oh; you can't do that. If you could, you could delete them and then create captions with just Lisa.

 

You can delete all the text from the speakers you don't want, then delete the ones with <Type your caption here>.
