Taped live at the June 2017 lacpug Meet -

SpeedScriber by Digital Heaven - Misha Tenenbaum

SpeedScriber, from Digital-Heaven, uses industry-leading automatic
speech recognition technology to analyze audio/video files and create
frighteningly accurate transcripts in real-time or faster. Transcripts are
automatically broken up by speaker and time stamped at regular
intervals, and can be edited and used in the app, or printed, exported
to PDF, or sent to Avid, Final Cut Pro X or Premiere Pro, where they
gain added functionality. Editor and EditStock founder, Misha Tenenbaum demoed this amazing new tool and showed how it can be used with
your favorite NLE to streamline the editing process for both non-fiction
and scripted projects.

WATCH: From NAB: Managing Media From Final Cut Pro X Projects With
Worx4 X
Staying within FCPX, you can only 'gather up and copy media' which isn't
ideal. At the recent Faster Together stage at NAB, Chris Steele from
Marquis Broadcast demonstrated Worx4 X that copies and trims media
saving a lot of disk space.

READ and WATCH: Proxy Workflow for your NLE
The Offline/ Online workflow is back. These days this is mostly due to large
file sizes and the computationally difficult nature of some camera negative
high res media. So having a robust and efficient proxy workflow, to be able
to edit with smaller, faster files, is crucial for post-production.
