Simon Says, an AI-based transcription, captioning and translation platform for video professionals, has announced integration with Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve for macOS. Users can now easily find meaningful dialogue, in any language, and receive the frame-accurate video transcript as ranged markers, colour-coded by speaker, then caption timelines and even align translated subtitles once the edit is complete – all with a few clicks from DaVinci Resolve.
With Simon Says, editors can transcribe their raw footage in minutes. Simply select the clips to import and transcribe. Add speaker labels, bookmark and make any edits in the video-transcript editor. Collaborate with your team to identify the key soundbites and then export back into Resolve, receiving ranged transcript markers, colour-coded to delineate speakers, that attach back to the original clips. Editing just got a whole lot more efficient – versus scrubbing through audio and switching back to the edit list in another program.
In addition to transcribing video, Simon Says can easily and quickly caption video edits and translate subtitles into 100 languages. Use the visual subtitle editor to preview formatting and export subtitles that import back into Resolve. This will make your delivery compliant and increase accessibility to those who are hard of hearing, as well as delivery to international audiences.
To get started, users download the Simon Says app for macOS and install the Resolve scripts to communicate between Resolve and the Simon Says AI cloud.
