How will the new select-by-transcript product work?

Ever heard of an EDL export format? Think: Script-based editing.

Step 1: Send your video to

Step 2: We’ll transcribe it, then send you a link to your script in our super-easy Rev Editor (play in the sandbox editor here)

Step 3: You and your team can then highlight your favorite portions of the script (It’s universal, no software required!).

Step 4: You’ll export that when you’re done with a few clicks.

Step 5: Import your file (it’ll be an EDL file extension) into your video editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut, or anything that supports EDL files. You’ll get a rough cut featuring all the transcript highlights you and your team decided on.

Then, viola! All your golden moments are readily available.

Bring your storytellers into the editing room

Get collaborative! Offload work! Save time! Find your takes! With the sheer ease of this feature, you’re able to bring your storytellers (and any other team members) into the editing room with you without them needing to understand complicated editing software.
