    Analyze speech on a merged clip not working

    monkeyfist12

      In the past I've successfully analyzed the contents of video clips with good results.  I even have been able to use Story CC scripts.

       

      When I try to analyze a merged clip (prores422 1080 24p, audio .wav) all options to analyze speech are grayed out.  I can analyze the video portion of the merged clip (even though it has no audio), but the .wav file gives me grayed out analyze content options.

       

      Am I missing something?  Are .wav files unsupported?

       

      The only workaround I can think of is to make new clips via media encoder.

       

      Any thoughts would be helpful.

       

      Thanks.

          Hey there monkeyfist12,

          Speech analysis won't work on merged clips, it's a known limitation. You should be able to analyze speech prior to merging them, however. Try it.

           

          Thanks,

            Thanks Kevin,

             

            That's a bummer on the limitation, but your work around works! 

             

            I analyzed the .wav got the transcription and viola shows up with the merged clip.

             

            (Oddly I couldn't analyze the .wavs before but now I can).

             

            Thanks for your quick response.

              Hi monkeyfist12,

              You're very welcome.

               

              Yeah, sorry that speech analysis won't work on merged clips. You can attach a script to merged clips, once they have been analyzed, however. If you want any enhancements for the future, please file a feature request: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish

               

              Thanks,
