Accelerate Editing with Powerful Dialog Search, Plus Script-Based Editing
PhraseFind automatically analyzes all clips in your project and phonetically indexes all audible dialog, so you can spend less time searching for the right media and more time focusing on what matters most – your story. ScriptSync phonetically indexes all text and audible dialog in your project automatically and then syncs each source clip to its associated line in the script. Once synced, you can quickly locate all relevant clips in seconds based on a scene number, page number, or word or phrase search, enabling you to compare performances in the context of your story.
Stop wasting time and money generating transcripts of your projects just to organize and locate media more easily. It’s back… With PhraseFind 2—the powerful new version of the acclaimed dialog indexing and search option for Media Composer—you can quickly find all relevant clips by simply typing a word or phrase.
Eliminate the need to review, log, and triage hundreds of hours of footage to find what you’re looking for. With superfast indexing, PhraseFind does the “listening” work for you and then locates all relevant clips based on your search criteria in seconds, with highly accurate results. Plus, with the new Auto-fill feature, you can perform more efficient searches to speed things along. Learn More.
