For example, let’s say you’re shooting an interview, and it begins at 1:00pm. During the interview, you can take notes in InqScribe, noting when a particularly interesting conversation happens by inserting the current time. For instance, if the interviewee says something interesting 12 minutes and 3 seconds into the interview, you can insert a time stamp next to your note about that with one keystroke, e.g.:
“[01:12:03.00] I didn’t know it at the time.”
Alternatively, instead of using time of day, you can also use a stopwatch synced to the start of the video recording.
How do you do this? Just set the Media Source to an Offline Media type and select “Use time of day” or “Use stopwatch timer”. Here are detailed instructions:
1. Create a new transcript “FIle->New Document…”
2. Click on the “Select Media Source…” button
3. In the “Source Type” popup menu, select “Offline Media”
4. Under “Timecode:” select the “Use time of day” radio button.
Then just type away as you normally would, using Command-; or (Ctrl-; in Windows) to insert the current time. Instead of using the media time, InqScribe will now insert the current time of day, or the stopwatch time.
