Using Transcriptive with multicam sequences is not a smooth process and doesn’t really work. It’s something we’re working on coming up with a solution for but it’s tricky due to Premiere’s limitations.
However, while we sort that out, here’s a workaround that is pretty easy to implement. Here are the steps:
1- Take the clip with the best audio and drop it into it’s own sequence.
2- Transcribe that sequence with Transcriptive.
3- Now replace that clip with the multicam clip.
4- Voila! You have a multicam sequence with a transcript. Edit the transcript and clip as you normally would.
This is not a permanent solution and we hope to make it much more automatic to deal with Premiere’s multicam clips. In the meantime, this technique will let you get transcripts for multicam clips.
Thanks to Todd Drezner at Cohn Creative for suggesting this workaround.
