Transcription Window Problems Solved and Demonstrated

Many thanks to the detailed comments from Justin 🙂  I focused on a few of his suggestions to finally show you some open coding with the transcription window.

In my next few posts we will compare this same process using the code window and using the transcription window.

  1. Tara…great to see the Transcription window being used well. Thanks Justin.

    Hi Tara. Glad to see some of the tips were valuable. Thought I’d mention a couple other shortcuts that make the navigation of the Tx window more efficient, presuming one is familiar with the keyboard.

    I’ll just give you a sequence of keystrokes that hopefully will demonstrate the functionality effectively, but the order shouldn’t matter per se.

    1. Code at least one instance in the Transcription Window. Doesn’t matter how you get it.
    2. Single click anywhere on the row in the Tx Window
    3. CONTROL+e opens the Edit Movie Window. It will be playing when it opens. (This is a preference. If you prefer it to open up in a Paused state, see below)
    4. You already know about CONTROL+j/k/l to Rewind/Pause/Play. So (for demonstration’s sake) use CONTROL+k to pause.
    5. SHIFT+CONTROL+i will extend the mark-in time by 1 sec. each time you press that key combination. The little white diamond at the bottom of the Edit Movie window will jump back to the left (i.e. beginning). Notice the duration (top center of the Edit Movie window) will adjust each time you press SHIFT+CONTROL+i.
    6. SHIFT+CONTROL+o works similarly, but on the mark-out side.
    7. CONTROL+i (with the Edit Movie window open) automatically reassigns the mark-in time to the place of the white diamond at the bottom of the window. Same functionality as when the Edit Movie window is not open, but you have a nice visual return for your investment.
    8. Similarly, CONTROL+o (with the Edit Movie window open) automatically reassigns the mark-out time to the place of the white diamond at the bottom of the window.
    9. Position the white diamond so that it’s definitively on the first or second half of the Edit Movie window… but not near the halfway point so that you are unable to tell which half it’s on.
    10. CONTROL+t will always “Trim” the shorter half of the instance relative to the position of the diamond. Hence the importance of being aware of which half the diamond is on.
    11. COMMAND+i will close the Edit Movie window and save the changes.

    Hope one or two of those might be useful.

    Forgot to show you how to change the Preference in #3.
    1. Click on the Studiocode menu in the very top left of the screen near the Apple, and choose “Preferences” from the drop down menu
    2. Single click on “Movies” in the left column
    3. Uncheck “Auto play movies created”.

    This now means the any instance movie that is opened (via timeline, Transcription Window, other) will be paused (as opposed to playing) when it opens.
