We are proud to announce a new release for Limecraft Flow! The update is planned Wednesday 22nd of November and shouldn’t cause any downtime. This post gives you an overview of what changed. The main focus for this release has been on the player controls and controls to control the timing of subclips, subtitles and transcript text.
Limecraft Flow extended with an additional service to automate the production of subtitles. Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) turns audio into text. A language processing service cuts the transcription into well-formed subtitles.
In a modern production workflow, online tools enable different people to participate from different locations. Media files and production information, often separately stored and managed at different locations, need to be exchanged. Due to a lack of standards, producers rely on Facebook or exchanging documents via email. As a result, individual media fragments are hard to retrieve, reuse of content is expensive, and the overall production cost explodes as the number of distribution possibilities increases.
Limecraft Flow for Factual is specially designed for production of non-fiction formats, i.e. documentary and magazine. “With this application, users access different sources to search and clip material fragments. By sorting and organising the material, the editor develops the story in a most convenient and intuitive way. During this process, Limecraft makes sure users can securely and easily share information and comments”, says co-founder and head of product development Nico Oorts of Limecraft.
