This post addresses specific needs of students in my HIST A404 class who need to take their two-camera interview footage and audio files and produce a small, continuous file for use with our InqScribe transcription software. By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to have an .m4v format video file in the right folder in the studio’s Dropbox account and be ready to begin transcribing.
Video 1 is an overview of what to do with your files in the FCPX Library titled “Service Industry.” (If you have not imported your raw footage into the Scratch Import library yet, you are not ready to do this. Refer to the post on how to import footage from SD cards first.) I show you a few more advanced considerations in how to synchronize your audio and video in this post and give advice as to which video angle to use. By the end of this video you will know how to generate a small m4v format file that is appropriate for use with our transcription workflow.
Video 2 helps you move you m4v file to the right folder in the Studio’s Dropbox account as well as how to set up your .inscqr format InqScribe file in the right place. By the time you are done with the steps in video 2, you will be ready to begin transcribing.
