👋 Hey BetaList folks! :)

A short background story about Type Studio.

We started Type Studio because we got frustrated with the way video editing is today! A typical video editing experience is counterintuitive when compared to everything within the modern conventions of UI design and functionality. There are so many buttons, dials, knobs, settings, and keyboard shortcuts to remember, that learning how it all works becomes in and of itself an exercise in patience and resolve. For content-focused video editing, you don’t need most of the features offered by most editing software, and the barrier to entry is very steep — you have to own a machine capable of running these programs and know-how all of the functions work.

With Type Studio you don't edit your video in a timeline like a classic video editor. It is all text-based! This allows you to edit a video without having any prior editing skills. It’s as easy as using Google Docs.

Type Studio explained in three simple steps:

Step 1: Load your video into Type Studio. We transcribe your spoken words into text.

Step 2: Edit the video by easily editing the text.

Step 3: When you are done and everything fits together, we do all the heavy lifting and render your video in the cloud.

Because we transcribe the text anyway, you can automatically add subtitles with just one click. If the speech recognition is not 100% accurate, then you can easily correct the text in the editor interface.

Being students ourselves, we know that not everybody is able to pay for every software they use, which is why our goal is always to offer a fully functional free version (without watermarks and all that crap). At the same time, we have to keep the lights on and that’s why we’ve decided to add a monthly upload limit.

If you don't have a video of your own available to edit right now, we have put together a sample video in the editor for anyone to use. Go and check it out!

Please let us know your feedback! We very much appreciate any comments or suggestions. We’re constantly improving Type Studio and your input can have a big impact. 💬 💙

Hey Beta List👋

You guys requested it – We shipped it for you.

Today we are super excited to launch our mobile auto subtitles generator.

You can now add subtitles to your videos where you originally record them. We've developed Type Studio's mobile subtitle feature with the goal of being the easiest and fastest way to add subtitles to your videos right on your phone. No hassle needed.

Broken down into three steps:

1. Either start recording your video in Type Studio or upload one from your library.

2. Edit, correct, or customize your subtitles.

3. Export your video and show it to the whole world on your social media.

Along with the ability to download your subtitled videos, we’re introducing our Sharing Screen integration inside Type Studio. The Sharing Screen lets you easily share your finished video with your friends, colleagues, or clients.

- 📱 Mobile Subtitle Generator
- 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Sharing Screen
- 🌍 Even more supported languages

Btw, you get all the features that Type Studio has to offer on your desktop in both the Free and Pro mobile versions.
