aiWARE for Adobe Premiere Overivew 

The Veritone aiWARE for Adobe Premiere Panel allows users and editors to export and process a Premiere project sequence through aiWARE transcription engines without ever having to leave Adobe Premiere Pro. 

Once the file has completed the automated processing, a caption file (SRT or TTML) is imported into the project sequence, allowing the user to align, edit and format the captioning prior to exporting the project from Adobe Premiere Pro.  

Once the sequence is ready to be exported, the user can choose to burn-in the captions or export the captions as a sidecar that can be delivered with the video file.

Using the aiWARE for Adobe Premiere Panel 

Once the user has successfully logged in, they can now select their Sequence, Transcription (language) option and Caption Format. The Panel will automatically detect the filename located within the Adobe Premiere Pro sequence when selecting the sequence options. Second, the user can then select the preferred Transcription option. Users can select the appropriate language based on their transcription requirements. Standard language options are included but custom languages can be added for the user. Last, the user can select the Caption Format they would like, currently the Veritone aiWARE for Adobe Premiere Panel supports both SRT and TTML file outputs. Once the user has made their selections within the Panel, they can Submit the job. 

Once the job has been submitted, the Panel will automatically refresh and inform the user what step in the automated process is taking place. 

There are currently 5 steps in our automated process, these include: 

  • Step 1: Creating proxy for upload - The Panel will automatically kickoff Media Encoder and create a low-res version of the file in your sequence. Note: Depending on the codec and duration of the file within your sequence, it may take longer to transcode the file within Media Encoder 

  • Step 2: Uploading asset to aiWARE - Once the transcode job is complete within Media Encoder, the Panel will automatically upload the file to aiWARE for cognitive processing 

  • Step 3: Processing asset running - Using our transcription engines the file will automatically processed to create the transcript data 

  • Step 4: Requesting transcription file - Once the cognitive processing is complete, the Panel will request the SRT or TTML file that was created within aiWARE 

  • Step 5: Adding transcription - Finally the SRT or TTML file will be returned to the sequence within Premiere, allowing users to burn in captions, edit and export the file 

It's important to note that Step 1 in the process does require support for Adobe Media Encoder, which will transcode the sequence file into a compressed version for cognitive processing. Depending on the codec of the file within your sequence and the length of the sequence this can take several minutes to complete 

Once the five step automated process has completed, users will see the transcription file (SRT or TTML) within their sequence. Users now have the ability to edit and format the transcription data via the caption tool within Premiere. Once the user has made any adjustments via the caption tool, they can simply export the video from Adobe Premiere with captions.
