What happens to my Trint after I export?

After you export, you will still be able to see your transcript. You can also continue to edit and make changes to your Trint and export as many times as you like!

How do I export?

Exporting your edited file on Trint is easy!

Simply open the file in the editor and click on the Export button in the top toolbar. You can then choose the relevant format and whether you want to export a) the entire document or b) just the highlights.

Options for Exporting Captions (.srt and .vtt)

Caption Length

You can change the default length of your subtitles by moving the slider to the left or right.
For more direct control, you can set subtitles to match the paragraphs of your Trint.

Speaker Names

You can toggle speaker names on and off by checking the box shown below. Remember, you must manually insert speaker names into your Trint for them to show up in your exports.

You can also customize how speaker names are displayed by having them inserted to the left of the subtitle or above it. You can also choose to input the names in all uppercase letters (CONNOR) or as entered in your Trint (Connor).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@trint.com.

Can I export multiple files at the same time?

Yes, you can do this from your Trints page. Select the files you want and click Export in the menu bar at the top of the page.

Can I export my file without timecodes?

Yes, absolutely! Just go to your Settings and disable the "Show time at start of paragraph" option, and your future exports won't have any timecodes attached. You can re-enable this setting at any time.

You can also opt to disable the Include timings on paste option and copy/paste your Trint into another application, if you prefer!

My export disappeared

Trint does not erase your files after you export, so if you can't find your files, you should check your Trints page thoroughly before contacting support@trint.com. If you have folders on your Trints page, it could be that this file has been accidentally moved into one.
