I signed up for Speech to Text - and I had a question.
The instruction seem to target using this is a tool for transcribing edited sequences for captioning. Which is nifty for sure. But is there a way to transcribe source clips?
For now, I've worked around the problem by dumping the raw footage into a sequence and then generating a transcript. However, it means the timecode now comes from the sequence rather than the raw media. And I can't use traditional source/record editing marking in and out points. I did try dumping the raw footage sequence into the source monitor but that cleared the text panel.
There USED to be a way to transcribe source clips in Premiere that went away several versions ago, that went away. I think this is a great tool, BUT I think it's a bit narrow minded to just apply it to a captioning workflow. It would be great to to have Speech to Text integrated into the EDITING workflow as well. Since a lot of us are still using paid services for human or computer generated transcripts of our raw interviews. Feature request?!
Yea, FR ... and the 'lead' discussions on the new captions workflow is mostly happening on the Public Beta forum, that's where the developers actually track the discussions. I STRONGLY recommend everyone using captions even if you don't use the public beta to follow that forum, and post comments and questions there.
