Instant subtitles

If you've ever gone through a movie adding subtitles, you'll know what a slow, tedious and laborious process it is. It's even more annoying if you've already put the dialog into the say activities to improve the lip sync.

We've just finished off adding a feature which will take a lot of that work away from you. When you add subtitles in the Cutting Room, there's an option to automatically generate subtitles from the say activities in your movie. Moviestorm will then add the subtitles to your entire movie.

Obviously, if you make spelling mistakes in your say activities, you'll get them in your subtitles too...

You can then manually adjust the subtitles individually if you want. It's still a bit fiddly, but it's a lot quicker than having to add them all in one at a time.
