    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for such a detailed description of your workflow, this is great. Our product team may correct me, but at the moment I think we're focusing more on building out the existing features, and making it easier for multiple users to work on the same Trint. If we were to move down the route into a full fledged video editor, I don't expect that this would be anytime soon. 

    That being said, we have made some recent changes to our Adobe Premiere plug-in that might help you better integrate Trint into your workflow:

    Hi Connor. 

     

    Thanks for your response.   

    I think I may have got this concept from reading an article about Trint somewhere, but no problem.  It's great you've done a Premiere plug in, but some of us use Avid, so I hope you're including us in your plans.   A good start (and I imagine quite easy to do) would be if you could export timecodes of highlighted sections as an Avid Marker file.    These are simple text files which would be simple to generate I imagine and can be imported back into Avid.   This would be an easy way to keep your Avid video editors on board.

    Thanks for the continuing work you're putting into a really useful product.

    Definitely the ability to do a ‘paper edit’ by copy/pasting sections of different trints to a master document- and have that generate an XML / EDL (should really be an AAF for Avid) would be the way to go.

    It works pretty well in testing for trimming out relevant parts of master interviews as it stands currently.

    BTW - I use video toolshed ‘make transcriber files’ for little BITC .movs and relink the xml to master files in PPro. Should be able to do the same with an EDL in avid (may have to pass it through a text editor to add video lines to the EDL - or use a macro to add video)
