Editing with Descript

Videos have become an integral part of our daily lives for both personal and professional purposes. With the increasing amount of video content, it is necessary to transcribe videos to effectively analyze and edit them. This guide will show you how to extract transcripts from Riverside Studio videos.

Step 1: Log in to Riverside Studio. Start by logging in to the platform and accessing the Gavin Alley Studio.

Step 2: Find the video. In the studio, you’ll find a list of videos with different statuses such as draft, exporting, or ready. Choose a ready video and remove any drafts.

Step 3: Create a clip. If the video doesn’t have any clips, create one. In this example, we’ll create a clip of the full length video.

Step 4: Export the video. In the video editing tool, select the layout, choose “grid with no gaps”, and set the export quality to 4K. Remove the background noise and watermark before exporting the video. You’ll receive a notification when the export is ready for download.

Step 5: Download the transcript. Once the export is complete, you can download the transcript by clicking on the three dots next to the video and selecting “download”. You can save it to your computer or Google Drive using the Google Drive Stream tool.

Editing the transcripts is also an important part of video production. There are two main types of editing: light and deep. Light editing scans the footage to ensure everything makes sense and involves quick edits if needed. Deep editing removes filler words, clouds, silences, and makes cuts if necessary. When editing a transcript connected to a video, be careful not to delete anything as it will also remove the corresponding part of the video. To modify text, the transcript must be disconnected from the video by clicking the pencil icon. If you need to delete words, insert spaces and use the find and replace function to remove them. Label the edited transcript properly and save it. A unique link will be generated and can be used to modify the transcript later.

In conclusion, video production requires attention to detail and technical proficiency, whether it’s a light or deep edit. Make sure the final product is polished and error-free.
