PowerSearch lets you find all the metadata and text in your Premiere Pro project

These are examples of PowerSearch in action. Showing off how some of the more important features work. You can find more in depth tutorials on the Powersearch Tutorial page, but these give you a glimpse of the power that PowerSearch gives you.

 

Searching 40 clips and 32 hours of footage

This video shows a project with 40 clips that combine to make 32 hours of footage. PowerSearch needs to index all the metadata, making it possible for you to find dialog anywhere in that 32 hours of video in a matter of seconds.

 

What The Search Results Look Like

PowerSearch displays search results like any other search engine. You’ll see results divided up into clips, sequences, markers and metadata (like camera metadata: time recorded, location, file type, etc). This makes it even easier to find things, for example, if you know you’re looking for a note that you put into a marker.

 

Locating dialog in Clips

This video shows what happens when you click on a search result for a video clip. The clip is opened in Premiere’s Source panel and the playhead jumps to the exact location where the search term was said. You can then set in/out points and drag it to your timeline..

 

Locating dialog in Sequences

This video shows what happens when you click on a search result for a sequence. The sequence is opened in Premiere’s Timeline panel and the Time Marker jumps to the exact location where the search term was said. Very useful if you’re working on a long project, say a 90 minute documentary, and you’re not sure where a specific quote is said.

 

Using other A.I. Transcription Services

There are other A.I. services that work with Premiere besides Transcriptive. They all put the transcript in the Speech Analysis field or markers. This video shows you what that looks like. Here’s a full tutorial on importing transcripts from other transcription services.
