    • Add support for Adobe Premiere Markers

      The ability to export this for Final Cut is awesome, but with the changes in FCP X, a lot of us have jumped or are jumping ship to Adobe Premiere. It would be nice to include these same capabilities.

        Thanks for writing in the request! We realize the Adobe Premiere community has grown stronger over the last few years. We’ll keep this under review for a future update of InqScribe.

      • Add Export to Word

        Many of my clients prefer transcriptions in .doc or .docx format, so it would be helpful to have an export feature for that. In the meantime, I copy and paste, but a straight-up export option would be much more elegant. Also, I imagine it might keep some of the formatting, such as the color-coded time codes, no? That would be helpful, too.

        • Allow for <--Comments--> in the transcript

          Add the ability to type in info, like the name of the current speaker, or scene numbers in a way that will be ignored when you export the XML. For example, in HTML, <--you simply bracket the comment like this-->.

          • Add an extra export option to make it compatible with MAXQDA.

            It needs rtf files with the timestamp at the end. MAXQDA recommend using F4 from audiotranskritpion.de, but I prefer inqscribe.

            • Batch export

              Add the ability to export to a certain format several Inqscribe files at once. Exporting a whole card full of Inqscribe transcripts one by one takes FOREVER.

              • Avid Caption Format Export

                I'm wondering how difficult it might be to support the Avid DS caption format. It is a very simple unicode text file with no separators other than spaces and line returns. Sample below.

                <begin subtitles>

                04:00:08:00 04:00:42:22
                Text line 1
                Text line 2

                04:00:42:22 04:00:51:00
                Text line 1
                Text line 2

                <end subtitles>

                This format is supported for captioning within Avid non-linear video editing software including Avid DS and Avid Media Composer.

                cheers,
                tod

                  • New version for Final Cut X?

                    Some of us have not jumped ship from being FCP 7 users and are loving life with Final Cut X. Is there an upgrade in the pipelines for us?

                    • Autofill the file name on export/save as dialog

                      When exporting, by default name the exported file with the same name as the Inqscribe project (or at least give the option, this saves a lot of time)... instead of always defaulting to "export.txt or .xml"

                      Additionally, when saving an InqScribe transcript, you should have the ability to autofill the title with the media filename.

                      • Import STL-files

                        We are often provided with STL-files which is a largely used standard for subtitling in television. It would be great to have an import for .stl.

                        • Do not resize media window when importing a new video file

                          "It would be nice to be able to import and not change my preferred sizing.
                          It would save a lot of resizing every time I import a file. I tend to log a lot of footage where I am handling over 100 files at a time and have to resize every one so I can access other things on my desktop at the same time." -Adrienne

                            • Implement keyboard shortcuts to export different types of files. (e.g: shortcut for TXT Export)

                              To export, you always have to go to the menu/submenu. It's be great to have a keyboard shortcut for every type of export to save time.

                              • add the ability to export transparency/ opacity scale.

                                add the ability to export onto a translucent background. Maybe have the transparent with a transparency/ opacity scale.

                                  Hi Junie,

                                  Thanks for your suggestion. InqScribe currently offers a “Transparent” background option for subtitle display (see the Save Subtitled QuickTime Movie Menu settings: http://docs.inqscribe.com/2.2/subtitling.html#export). However, we do not currently offer a translucent/opaque background option, so we will place your suggestion under consideration for a future update of InqScribe.

                                  Thanks again!
                                  Alex Underwood

                                • Standard Screenplay Format Exporting

                                  InqScribe is great for direct transcription, however, as Adobe PP editors we could really use a workaround that would allow us to export a standardized screenplay format http://www.storysense.com/format/margins.htm that we could import into our metadata workflow/s.

                                  I have found that Adobe "Story" is a critical step in the workflow, and while InqScribe's ability to export text (.txt) without timecode is a nearly perfect solution for bulk dialog text, the problem is that we need the speaker field to be separated out in the export, so Story would be able to delineate CHARACTER/speakers from dialog text.

                                  Note: the format described above…

                                  • TTML import

                                    Although InqScribe has the ability to output a TTML file via the InqScribe Labs site (https://labs.inqscribe.com/exporter/ttml/), there is currently no way to import a TTML file into InqScribe.
