Using speech analysis in Premiere Pro

From: Up and Running with Adobe Story

Video: Using speech analysis in Premiere Pro

All right, we're going to pick up where we left off in the previous movie. We have this clip here inside Premiere Pro, we've told it that this is Scene number 2 right there, and we attached an Adobe Story Script, an ASTX file to it. Now we need to analyze that script and the way we do that is by right clicking here again, and say Analyze Content, and it says, what do you want to analyze, face detection? No. Speech? Yes. And you select the language, and there are multiple choices here, but obviously we're going with English, because that's what we're working with here. Use the embedded Adobe Story Script, definitely, you can also use text files, but we're going to use our script, which will work actually more smoothly than a text file would. Identify Speakers, I really like that. The script even notes that there are different characters, different actors and so we can identify them, and it's a good thing, we go back and forth, one to the next. Now we click OK that opens up the Adobe Media Encoder. The Adobe Media Encoder immediately starts analyzing the clip.

Now we click OK that opens up the Adobe Media Encoder. The Adobe Media Encoder immediately starts analyzing the clip.

It tries to connect the script with the audio and put the words, one word at a time, to every word spoken inside the script. It probably won't be perfect, it's really hard to do this, but it does a pretty good job, and we'll see how this one turns out. So here we're back in Premier Pro. It took about a minute to do that analysis, and let's see what happened. Well, the first thought is that well, this is where we left off, right? There is just nothing going on here, if I click here, nothing happens. If I close this down and look at the analysis text, now that look different. Scroll up a bit here and see what we have. Now I can see we've identified the characters MR. DALTON, MR. DALTON and JOSEPH, JOSEPH. If I click over here, How is the coffee? It turns blue. I got Did you finish it? And notice the current time indicator is moving. Now these guys are not lining up, because this scene hasn't even started yet, so let's just keep on going forward and see if there are any point here, they are actually start getting it right. Let's see what we got here, click on Play. It's still waiting for the word to pop up here.

(male speaker: How's the coffee?) Ah, missed it. Let's go down here, Play here. (male speaker: --simple deadline - meet it.) Well, you can see how I had a little trouble there at the beginning, but now that we get to this part of this script, it seems to be picking things up pretty well, just keep on going here. (male speaker: That's it? Six PM Huh? And if I'm a risky choice then don't use me, we all know what risky decisions lead to.) So we can see that it had a little trouble analyzing thing at the beginning, but right about here it starts picking up things pretty well, so it's not a perfect solution. I'm going to click on My creativity and see what happens, I go there, and click that, and I'll click Play. (male speaker: My creativity has nothing to do with this.) So you can see it kind of leads into the word, so this is a fast way to jump to some place in the script.

Let's say you want to have an in point, so I'll click on My here and click on the in point there, I want to understand, that can be the out point for example. Then I can drag this clip down to a sequence, well, I'll create a new sequence here, let's drag this thing down to New Items icon. I'll create a new sequence with that trimmed clip in that sequence. (male speaker: My creativity has nothing to do with this.) So you can see that it does a reasonably good job of tracking down some of the script, but there are issues. You saw at the beginning how it didn't really nail it, but as I moved along it did a pretty good job finding stuff later. If you click on the Metadata again, here you can see that that's what we just selected and does show up down here inside of the timeline. So that is how you take a script from Adobe Story, Attach it to a clip inside Premier Pro, do the Speech Analysis, and then once you've done the Speech Analysis, you can dive into the clip and find words and then edit using those words.
