    Hey Kyrina,

    On-Line seems to be the best way of transcribing video.
    There are one or two services that works as a plug-in to FCPX.

    There was recently an interesting conversation on transcribing on the A.I. COW, including FCPX recommendations:


    Why do all auto-captioning softwares seem to be online ? 😱

    FCPX by itself is a couple of years behind the competition on that. But the “Extension” SimonSays works really well. Coremelt had Scribomatic for awhile, I beta tested it, it was great, but they dropped it.

    Thank you! Will explore these suggestions.

    Anyone familiar with Lumberjack? I think I saw a presentation at LACPUG awhile back.

    It would be nice to work within FC.

    Lumber Jack, I know the developers, is a much more complex logging system. It’s more money, and lots of things you’d probably never use.

    I used Lumberjack on 2 productions last summer – works well with FCPX and is not overly expensive – I didn’t use any logging functions, just transcription , and then text editing to create sequences – it’s worth doing the trial…

    I use Speed Scriber. It integrates with the cut seamlessly and continues to improve.

    Very good customer service.

    Highly recommended.

    There’s MacWhisper which is free, and requires you to export the audio from FCP but is local desktop, not online. It doesn’t have much in the way of controls/features.
