Attaching scripts to clips in Premiere Pro

From: Up and Running with Adobe Story

Video: Attaching scripts to clips in Premiere Pro

An exciting and useful feature inside of Adobe Story Plus is the ability to take a script from Story and have Adobe Premiere Pro use the text in that script and connect the words in the text to the spoken dialog inside the video clip. It's really a powerful feature that allows you to do some fast and easy editing. Just let me show you how to connect a script to a video clip in this movie, and I'll show you how to work with in a different movie. Here we have a script, and we're going to Export it. We Export it as a particular kind of file, an astx files, so I go File > Export As > Adobe Store Interchange Format (.astx).

An exciting and useful feature inside of Adobe Story Plus is the ability to take a script from Story and have Adobe Premiere Pro use the text in that script and connect the words in the text to the spoken dialog inside the video clip.

We Export it as a particular kind of file, an astx files, so I go File > Export As > Adobe Store Interchange Format (.astx).

So I'm going to back off just for a second and close down Story, here we go. And here inside Premiere Pro, and I have got a clip loaded up here, this is a Scene 2, 2b specifically, and it uses dialog from our script. So I have loaded it up. What I need to do now is tell this clip what scene number to look for inside the script. Otherwise, it's just nearly possible, script that have dozens of scenes, and this is just one part of the scene. So let's go do that. If you go down to the clip itself here inside the Project panel and scroll all the way across here, you're going to see a scene column right there.

And it looks further like you can't put anything there, like something is supposed to be there, but nothing is there. In fact, if you click here, it opens up this little bar. I'm going to type in number 2, because this is Scene 2 here, and you can see it's Scene 2b, so 2 is fine there, because that matches up the scene number inside our script, if I click like that, now it accepts that this is Scene 2. So now I want to connect the script to the clip, but before I do that I want to put them Metadata panel over here, so I can see it, and it does seem to work more smoothly when we put the Metadata over here, so we can watch it. Now I'm going to back and click on the Source panel, so you can see both things at once.

And here it says, Speech Analysis Embedded Adobe Story Script (nothing found). Let's change that, shall we? So I right-click here on the clip, open the Context menu, and say Attach Script File. We have this one here inside exercise files folder, so I'm going to Desktop, click on the Exercise File folder, and there is our script, double-click on that and open this up, there is the script right there. What we need to do now though is we need to do a Speech Analysis, and then we can work with inside that clip. So connect it to the audio here and Premiere Pro tries to connect spoken words here that it hears and analysis to the actually text here.

And once it does that, then we can use that analysis and try to edit it. So we will do that in the next movie.
