  2. add a snippets counter, so you can see how many lines a characters has.

    If you translate a script with different characters, you always want to know have many lines a certain actors has for planing your studio time. so it would be great if you could add a "snippets line counter" under the "Transcript" menu, and also be able to choose the line count of different snippets.

  6. Add jog & shuttle support for video manipulation

  7. add the ability to export 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!

  8. Add password protection to .inq files

    We use this program for our research with human subjects. For security sake, add a password protection on files. Right now, I have to move the files into an encryption folder, then extract them when I want to use the file again. Adding encryption or password protection directly on the .inq files would be more efficient.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Geolocate your audio

    How about being able to set a geo-location using Google Earth/Maps for a map reference to your audio clips - working in a similar way to the Timecode feature, but plotting map references. You could maybe have access to a window with google maps/earth in the interface, say below where the player is now. Finding a way to link map coordinates with the text/audio would be great.

  13. Create an iPad version.

    As a lingstic anthropologist I take my iPad into the field to take fieldnotes, use it as a recording device, etc. Then on the way I home, I would like to start working on the transcripts, but I can't because there isn't an inqscribe ap yet. All I really need is a way start and stop with ease while transcribing and add time codes. Then I need to upload the transcript on my desktop inqscribe program in order to make my files subtitled there. Considering that most of the linguistic anthropologists I saw at the American Anthropological Association conference this…

  14. Solve these Final Cut Pro Markers export problems


    • You can't drag and drop the generated XMLs into FCP (it gives you an "unrecognized file" error). You have to import them one by one using the "Import XML" dialog, which takes a LOT of time. Also, every imported XML gives you an error log since it can't find the associated media file.


    • It's prone to errors when encountering weird ASCII characters, with no explanation whatsoever that this is the case. I had to work with your support guys to figure this out.


    • It generates an empty sequence with the markers at sequence level. It would be great to also…

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

  17. to have inqscribe to recognize tc on mp3 files

    It will be nice if inqscribe could recognise ID3 TC in mp3 files embedded on the metadata. MP3 are smaller and have a fast download /upload time.

  18. Implement background/foreground coloring. (e.g., Writeroom app)

    Implement some sort of arbitrary background/foreground coloring, as in the mac application Writeroom (e.g., White/Blue). Easy on eyes!

    Also include custom coloring for the green bar at the top of the InqScribe window.

  19. Save time series jpgs with transcript notes subtitles. Would be fantastic for student notes reviews

    As above, export time series jpgs with transcript subtitles. It would be an incredible review technology for notes.

    Thanks for the suggestion Alan. Although you can save a timecoded video as a series of JPEGs (by selecting “File > Save Time Series As JPEGs”), you cannot currently display your transcript as subtitles to these images. This is great idea, so we’ll consider adding it in a future InqScribe update.

  20. word-by-word timecoding with script building

    as a doc filmmaker, building a script could be hugely aided by inqscribe if it:
    a) employed speech recognition to match words to timecode after transcription.
    b) allowed editing of the timecode stamped words into new scripts
    c) allowed playing such scripts from the original source material (assembly edit)
    d) provided export of assembly edit to editing software for finessing
    e) highlighted text that'd been used in a script so that after editing one could see what's been used and not used.

    I realize this is a huge task, but for years I've thought that a timecoded word editor would…
