Audio transcription: how to make it work?

Jun 24, 2013 5:34 AM

Hello dear Premiere users,


I am evaluating Premiere Pro for its audio transcription feature, and I can't make it work.

I use Windows 7 64 bits.


My knowledge of Premiere Pro is limited so I might be missing a step.


Here is what I do: (Since I am using a French version of Premiere Pro, some interface 'terms' may be actually different in the English version of Premiere Pro).


• I create a Premiere project

• In the media Explorer tab, I open a video file (720p mp4 from Youtube), of an audio file (mp3 for an Internet podcast).

• I select the Metadata tab and I press the Analyze button > I select Audio, and Quality: High


Adobe Media Encoder is lauched and works for some seconds or minutes (depending on the length of my file)

It creates 3 files in C:\Users\Xxx\AppData\Local\Temp : a .cit file, an .xml file and a .txt file.

The .txt file contains English words so something is going right.


But no text appears in Premiere Pro, in the Metadata tab.


What step am I missing?


Thank you in advance,

Roger soimosan

    My guess would be that you need to import the clips before you Analyze them, rather than just loading them into the Source Monitor.
