  1. 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

    • Stay as fantastic as you are always!

      This is the most exciting work-related software I've come across in this iconic year 2012!

      But I don't know where to write with my trouble-shooting Q.

      I love you guys, you're the best!

      • Support for media in external device, like DV player

        One of the things I really miss in Inqscribe is the possibility of transcribing straight from a DV tape. As a documentarist shooting in native langugages, I first have to go do a pre-translation in a text editor, and then bring a captured clip from Final Cut into Inqscribe and this will be translated again. Inqscribe would grow immensely as a program if it had the possibility of controling an external DV device via firewire (like a player, or camera in VTR mode) and using that as media.

        • Add a Google Search Function

          From Danila: "Useful for looking up names and terms a transcriber is unfamiliar with."

          • error box needs keyboard support and non cryptic alert messages (media not in expected folder error)

            Blind users can't interact with media not found errors via the keyboard and these errors are in cryptic hexadecimal rather than English.

                  • Add an auto-volume adjust

                    I think there should be a feature to automate volume adjustment. So either all songs can play at the same volume or one can program a playlist to play a particular song louder.

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • Update window behavior to conform to OS X Lion applications

                          It appears that the latest version only allows window resize from the bottom right corner. Most other apps now allow resizing from any edge or corner.

                          • BPM Finder

                            It would be great if the software could automatically find the BPM of the song or video clip being played as it saves opening external applications to do this simple task.

                            • Line by Line language replace

                              Add the feature that the much more expensive program Final Sub has. The ability to import a text document in a new language, and have it replace, line by line the previous language in the same timecode positions. Right now I have to copy and paste in the new language line by line. Very time consuming.

                              • multiple tiers

                                Enable multiple transcription tiers relating to the same time code so that a transcription tier can be linked to a translation or annotation tier. This would make the software very attractive to those doing documentary linguistics.

                                  Thanks for the suggestion. The idea of a tiered or tabbed interface is very much on our radar. It would be a great way to organize notes, transcriptions, and translations. We will definitely consider it for a future version of InqScribe.

                                • add quick look functionality to inqscribe files

                                  I'd like to be able to use the Quick Look feature of osx to see at least the text contents of inqscribe files at a glance in the finder.

                                    • Batch update for file locations

                                      Different users have the same file stored in different locations. Currently, we have to relocate each file one by one as we re-open transcripts. It would be so much easier to have a batch update function, or a default directory option that can be updated and affect all transcripts.
