Transcribing Audio in DaVinci Resolve

Audio transcriptions are now a feature in DaVinci Resolve and there’s lots you can do with it.

You can transcribe a whole clip in your media pool and edit from it, export text, create markers, and more.

You can also transcribe your timeline audio to create subtitles.

This is a big time saver and one hugely requested feature that the Blackmagic Design team has done a great job with.

In this video from Darren Mostyn, you’ll learn about:

  • Transcribing audio
  • Viewing transcription
  • Text Accuracy
  • Creating markers
  • Creating subtitles from timeline audio
  • Exporting transcription
  • creating sub clips from text
  • Insert clips with transcript
  • Searching the text

  1. Can you do an article about how you can network a few resolve computers? Can you use one to render while working on the same video on another pc or Mac? Can you have both pc’s and Macs on the same network and do this?

  2. I was hoping we could now edit video from the transcript like Descript allows. But the Ai transcription fails to capture all the garbage words ex. “like” and I cannot easily just nuke it from the clip

  3. This is super helpful.
    I have been using the audio transcription and something funny happens. I know i transcribed a set of clips of a certain character (about 30 clips) and then, i export each transcription as a text file to the location of the original clip, just so i have it also on the desktop and is searchable also on the mac system.
    Today, when i logged back into DR, all the symbols that these files have been transcribed, disappeared. so Basically, it requires me to re-transcribe th audio of each file despite me already doing that, and i have all the desktop files to prove it to my own memory (in case i doubted that i did that). so what can cause the files to loose the transcription data? and how can i re-link these files to the transcripts? it took a VERY long time to generate the transcription, and loosing them like this is really annoying. i am glad i exported the transcripts to the desktop, but now they are “detached” from DR.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
