How It Works

Import & Transcribe

Upload your audio and video to the website, or with one of our video editor extensions, and they'll swiftly transcribe. We support almost any file format, codec, and language. Import and...done.

Cut Video by Editing Text

Move the project into Simon Says Assemble, our text-based editor and start highlighting the transcript text of the soundbites. Drag and drop them into the desired order to create your rough cut in half the usual time. Really, it's that magical. Try it.

Collaborate

Invite teammates and clients into the user-friendly, web-based editor where they can leave comments and provide feedback. In fact, the whole team can edit together, in real time, so everyone can quickly align on the story. THIS is how collaborating on video was meant to be.

Export

Download an MP4, export captions, and export the edit's XML back to Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve, and Avid Media Composer. The timeline/sequence seamlessly reconnects to the source media, at the original in and out points, so you can polish and complete the film in your usual tools. Boom. Happy dance time! πŸ’ƒ

Export

Seamlessly export the edit back to Adobe, FCPX, Resolve, and Avid.
With captions and subtitles in 100 languages.

How to

Imports | Find the soundbites | Drag&Drop | Collaborate | Exports
Import your dailies, interviews, and recordings to Simon Says using any one of our products: web, FCPX Extension, Mac app, Adobe extension, and Resolve extension. Then transcribe.
Go into Assemble mode on the web. Highlight the soundbites and mark the meaningful parts of your interview and dialogue
Order and reorder soundbites and clips to form the foundation of your story: the video is dynamically created. Build your story simply by dragging and dropping text.
Invite your teammates and client to view, comment, edit and sign-off on the story. Eliminate rounds of editing: it all happens live in the browser.
With the story approved and the tedium of back-and-forths eliminated, it's time to really get creative and bring the film to life. Export the assembly edit to your audio/video editing application and watch the timeline magically recreate and clips reconnect. Focus on pacing, cut to music, color/grade.
