"Analyze speech to create text metadata" But how?

Apr 27, 2013 6:56 AM

On page 269 of the PDF it states:

 

Analyze speech to create text metadata

1. Select a file or clip.

2. At the bottom of the Metadata panel, click Analyze Speech, or Analyze (Adobe Premiere Pro).

3…

 

Whoa, we can stop right there. I imported a test clip from my GH2, draggged it into the Sequence Panel (what is the proper name for that window?), clicked on it and it turned a dark blue, went to Window > Metadata and Analyze was greyed out. The clip plays okay, but won't be analyzed.

 

How do I get Analyze Speech to work?

    With the clip selected in the Project Panel,

    hit the 'Analyze' button (circled).

    You will then get this pop-up:

    Set your preferences, then hit OK.

    Media Encoder will launch, and automatically begin the analysis.

    Once it is finished, close Encoder, return to Premiere, and the

    analyzed text will appear in the Metadata Panel (with that clip selected).

     

    note:

    Speech Analysis isn't perfect... but it can give you a good start.

    draggged it into the Sequence Panel (what is the proper name for that window?)

    'Timeline Window'.

    1. Premiere can't analyze the audio component of .MTS video files from a Lumix GH2 (sound codec AAC).
    2. It can't analyze the audio part of .mp4 video files from a mobile phone (sound codec: AAC)

    I don't have any AAC audio media to test.

    Can you upload a clip somewhere?

     

    note:

    This might be a limitation of Speech Analysis.

    00001.MTS - (AC-3 codec)

    I could not get Speech Analysis to recognize this raw file, either.

    Speech Analysis worked:

    After flipping it in Media Encoder to Ut .avi (PCM),

    After flipping it in Media Encoder to .AAC audio only/44.1kHz,

    After flipping it in Media Encoder to MPEG2-DVD (PCM),

    After flipping it in Media Encoder to H.264 (AAC),

     

     

    So... .AAC codec does not appear to be any problem.

    I would suspect the original file's AC-3 codec (or the

    method of  multiplexing) to be the culprit.

    This file does not play in A/V sync in Premiere for me either.

    This sync problem is likely the result of the file's variable frame rate.

    Premiere doesn't much care for VFR media files.
