Can InqScribe import STL files?

InqScribe doesn’t officially import STL files, but since InqScribe’s transcript window is basically a simple text editor, you should be able to edit the contents of your STL file using InqScribe. Here’s how:

  • Open your STL file in a text editor
  • Copy the contents of the file into a blank InqScribe transcript. A sample line might look like this:

00:00:15:11,00:00:16:16,sample text

  • Select “Transcript Settings” and make sure “recognized unbracketed timecodes” is checked.
  • Also in “Transcript Settings,” make sure your timecode format is unbracketed (to match the format of the timecodes already in your transcript).
  • Next, load your media file in InqScribe either by dragging the file onto the media viewer or by choosing “Select Media Source…”

InqScribe should recognize your timecodes as clickable entitles, and you should be able to edit your timecodes as you normally would in InqScribe.

When you’re finished, verify that the syntax in your transcript matches your original STL format (i.e., 00:00:15:11,00:00:16:16,sample text), then simply copy the contents of the transcript back into your original STL file.

We hope to offer a more seamless import in the future. Feel free to vote for this feature in our feedback forum.
