Building Type Studio ๐Ÿš€ A New Way To Edit Videos

๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 donโ€™t need most of the features offered by most editing software, and the barrier to entry is very steep โ€” 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. Itโ€™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 thatโ€™s why weโ€™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. Weโ€™re constantly improving Type Studio and your input can have a big impact. ๐Ÿ’ฌ ๐Ÿ’™

Hey Beta List ๐Ÿ‘‹

After our public beta launch a few months ago @jan_kalthofer @erikeimterbaumer @marvin_off @khrev_ and I have continued working hard and have taken into account all the amazing feedback we have received from you.

So, today we are super thrilled to launch our automatic subtitle generator. ๐ŸŽ‰

Besides editing your video text-based, Type Studio now lets you add subtitles automatically to your video in a variety of languages. All of this can be done with just one click.

Cut, transcribe, or subtitle your content-focused video:

๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ป Online Courses

Our small team is working around the clock to continue to make improvements to Type Studioโ€™s features. Because of this, our paying users are a very important piece of this process. Your support allows us to continue working full-time towards an ever-growing product. Each person who takes it upon themselves to pay for our tool is directly supporting our future as a company. ๐Ÿ‘‹

With that being said, we have decided to release some of the updates specifically for the paid plans to make them more valuable. The subtitle customization and the export function are part of the paid plans.

Nevertheless, there is no launch on Beta List without a special deal. Thatโ€™s why weโ€™re giving away 20% off of our Pro Plan this week.๐ŸŽ

Hey Beta List๐Ÿ‘‹

You guys requested it โ€“ 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, weโ€™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.
