Simon Says v.2.0 Automated Transcription

Last week was a big week for us as we released version 2.0 of our latest macOS application / Final Cut Pro X Extension and we were featured prominently at Adobe MAX and the Final Cut Pro X Summit, annual conferences for the creative community.

The 2.0 update includes big improvements:

  • Significantly more support for permutations of multicam, sync, and compound clips in FCPX
  • Nifty new editing features such as the ability to add speaker labels, notes, and bookmarks
  • Added export options for FCPXML Titles (to give greater flexibility in formatting), DaVinci Resolve sequences, and lots of new subtitle formats

We made LOTS of updates under-the-hood too:

  • Better formatting of subtitle cards
  • Meaningful advances in accuracy (with some users claiming close to perfection!)
  • Supporting 100 transcription and 50 translation languages

Here is the summary of Simon Says' capabilities today:

  • Transcribe, subtitle, caption, and translate audio/video
  • Timecode-based AI, geared to video pros
  • Cloud products: Web, macOS app, FCPX Extension
  • On-premise product: Mac/PC application (no data sent to the cloud)
  • Import virtually any media file format, codec
  • Export to your video editor incl. Adobe Premiere/Audition, FCPX, Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve
  • Export to subtitles: srt, webvtt, fcpxml captions/titles, stl, sami
  • Collaborate with your team

We've come a long way in just a few years and we are grateful to play a small part in your creative and video workflowsÔøΩ thank you for including us.
