I am trying to create a script to make a short commercial. However, I am using existing footage and a makeshift text script - not really a script at all, just a bulleted narration spoken on the video clips.
How can I work these to link text to video with voiceover audio (separate) I cut and pasted test to a script in Story and saved it as an interchange file, but Premiere does not accept it. Says there is no matching scene number. How and where do I apply a scene number to a script?
Please refer to steps mentioned by Anubhav in this post to know the exact steps of Story to Premiere workflow.
You may create the script as per your needs but you should definitely have a scene heading (with scene number assigned) in the exported .astx file.To assign scene numbers to a script go to 'Production' menu -> 'Manage scene numbers...' .Also the clip in Premiere should be assigned the same scene number before attaching Story script to it.
Please let us know if you still face problem in this.
Okay, I got Premiere to accept the script. Thanks. But I have never worked with a script and I am trying to design a workflow. I can probably complete the video without a script, but I want to use it as a template because there will be a series of similar video commercials for the same company. Since I already have existing footage, I envision using screen shots in place of descriptions in the rows, and somehow link them to the clips. During client review, if I need to make changes to have them update both in Premiere as well.
I typed in the scene/shot numbers manually. The post you referred me to advised to make a new scene for each clip, but I did not. In the script I listed scenes as 001, 002, 003, etc and shots as 003.001, 003.002, 003.003, etc. The video is mostly scene 003 broken out into shot clips already on the Premiere timeline. 001 and 002 are the opening title sequence.
I have a voiceover file in the Premiere project referenced to the script. I am trying to link the video clips to their corresponding points in the script as well, but that is where I am lost.
In the 'Production' dropdown, the only thing highlighted is 'Modify Header/Footer' everything else grayed out. So I have no way to work from within the script. I am having to go into Premiere metadata for each clip and type in information. I think I am making more work for myself.
It would be wonderful if i could get someone to look at what I am doing and lead me a bit, since this is all online?
