Digital Anarchy updates transcription plug-in for Premiere

SAN FRANCISCO — Digital Anarchy ( has advanced its intelligent transcription software for Adobe Premiere Pro with the launch of Transcriptive 2.0 — an automated, intelligent transcription plug-in that automatically transcribes video using multiple speech and natural language processing engines. Transcriptive 2.0 introduces a number of new features that are designed to accelerate editing workflows. 

Editors can transcribe video or audio, edit transcriptions and edit video with text directly within the transcripts without leaving the Premiere Pro timeline. A new clip mode enables users to load a transcript from individual clips instead of entire sequences. Clip mode also allows editors to select soundbites in the transcript and paste them into the timeline. 

Offline sync is a new alignment feature that allows users to assign timecode to an existing script that matches the audio of a clip. It works offline, without the need for an internet connection or cloud service. The free offline alignment option is available for English transcripts only. Syncing transcribed text in other languages requires an internet connection and costs four cents per minute.

A new text editor provides users with more intuitive word processor capabilities for editing transcripts in realtime without switching modes. All changes made on the transcripts will be automatically synced with corresponding clips and sequences. And an update to Transcriptive AI now enables users to access Transcriptive-AI and Speechmatics through one account with lower pricing. 

Digital Anarchy also announced that it will bundle PowerSearch for Adobe Premiere Pro with Transcriptive 2.0 at no charge. PowerSearch is a powerful metadata search tool that integrates with Adobe Premiere Pro, enabling editors to quickly scour an entire project for metadata and instantly locate specific clips and sequences based on those keyword searches.

Transcriptive 2.0 is available immediately and is priced at $299. Transcriptive 1.0 and 1.5 users can purchase a Transcriptive 2.0 upgrade for $149.
