How To Transcribe clips in Resolve

1. Open the Simon Says exe application.

2. Select the clips you want to transcribe in your bin. If you are transcribing a multi-cam*, select the relevant checkbox in the Simon Says Resolve extension.

*Note: each angle in a multi-cam will export and be chargeable. For example, a 3-angle, 1-hour multi-cam will cost 3 hours of transcription credit as each angle separately transcribes.

3. In Simon Says: click the button 1a. Let the media transcode and upload to the Simon Says server.

4. Go to the Simon Says website, login, and open the newly created project with the uploaded media. Click "Transcribe" on the website and pay.

5. You will receive the transcripts in a few minutes. Make any edits/corrections; add speaker names and notes.

6. Once you've finished editing the transcripts, go back to the Simon Says exe application and click button 1b. Button 1b attaches the transcript markers to the clips in the bin. The original bin which contains the imported clips must be open for the transcript markers to attach to the respective clips. If you are reattaching transcript markers to a multi-cam, make sure the multi-cam checkbox is selected in the Simon Says Resolve extension.

Subtitle timelines:

  1. Open the Simon Says exe application.

2. Select the timeline you want to transcribe in your bin.

3. In Simon Says: click button 2. Let the timeline transcode (flatten) and upload to the Simon Says server.

4. Go to the Simon Says website, login, and open the newly created project with the uploaded media. Click "Transcribe" on the website and pay.

5. You will receive the transcript in a few minutes. Click "export" and choose "Visual Subtitle Editor" to preview the transcript as subtitles / captions.

6. Make any edits/corrections.

7. Once you've have finished editing the subtitles/captions, click export and choose "SRT" to download the SRT file. Unzip it.
