Feature Request: Export transcript as an SRT file

I like transcribing in Premiere. The one thing I wish it had is the ability to Export the transcription as an SRT - without having to create captions. I don't need the captions as a track. I just need to create an SRT from the transcription. Most third party AI's will allow you to export a transcription as an SRT without creating a caption track. 

That would be my suggestion.

Hey Mitzleplick8867,

 

Thank you for your contribution to the community. You can export your transcribed file as a text or CSV file. You may do so by going to Text Panel > Transcript and clicking the button with three dots on the upper right corner. You can also share your suggestions on UserVoice so that others can vote for it.

 

Regards,

Ishan

While you can't export it as srt, as Ishan says, you can export as csv. The csv has all the info you need to format as srt.

 

But the problem I see is that the transcript itself is essentially long paragraphs with a very long duration timecode. How will that be useful? I'd look instead to create captions from it as close as you can get to your goal, then export srt from there.

My workaround is to transcribe, then just create the captions and export as SRT. I can then just click the eyeball on the sequence to hide the captions. This seems simplest to me. But, I still think an improvement would be to have an Export feature as an SRT directly from the transcription.

Got it.

 

Would the transcript-to-srt be divided into caption size segments?

 

Rather than just the eyeball, you can also right click the caption track header, and delete it.

We also use Transcriptive by Digital Anarchy. So, when you transcribe, you make your corrections and then you can export at a text file, SRT file, SCC file among others. It exports just as an SRT would from Premiere and plays the same as needed.

Transcriptive is excellent, but I have not  used it. In their transcript, does it break it into caption segment size bits, or long paragraphs like the PR transcript?
