Text-Based Editing Using Transcription

Being able to edit based on text from audio transcriptions can change the way you edit.

Want to edit text and have it turn into a video? Now you can.

Any clip’s audio can be transcribed in the media pool. Then you can remove the parts you don’t want and add those clips to your timeline!

I’ve already used the remove silences feature to give me a quicker start editing a video, but editing the text itself is a great idea.
