1 00:00:01,000 --> 00:00:04,000
I am using Adobe Premiere to produce videos in English by gluing together multiple clips put together from lots of different footage or sources. I do have a text transcript of what is being said though, in English, so talking about word-for-word English subtitles for the voice in English.
2 00:00:04,250 --> 00:00:06,250
How would I go about creating a subtitles file for the final video?
- I do not wish to render the captions into the video
- The transcript I have does not have any time information and that is the crux of this question - what is the easiest way to generate semi-accurate timing records, as automatically as possible?
- So the question is NOT about how to sync existing subtitles with existing timestamps
- I could do it in Premiere, or Adobe Audition, or Subtitle Edit, Subtitle Workshop or any other subtitle editor that may provide relevant synchronization functionality?
- The end result I'm hoping for is a flv file with closed captioning (.sub, .srt or similar) that could be turned on or off in a web-browser / Flash player
- Like this lecture, for example, when you click on CC and choose the embedded English subtitling (not the automatic captions that YouTube offers)
