For the past 15 years I've been working as a freelance videographer and video editor with various journalists and broadcasters. The problem that bothered me, and I believe many of you are doing the same tedious task over and over again, was the following.
After shooting the video material, I would return to the studio, do the backup and then send the video material to the journalist. The journalist/storyteller would then watch the video in VLC, write down the timecodes and descriptions in text editor and then send me the 'script'.
With the script in my hands, I'd start punching in countless IN's and OUT's. Copying and pasting from text files, word documents, PDFs and what not. Each time I'd entered a clip timecode, I'd remember that the journalist had to write down that same timecode.
We were essentially doing the same work twice. I was crazy about it. So much time wasted unnecessarily.
I've been thinking about this for a long time, about three years now.
And finally, AVScript is born as a “scratch your own itch” solving problem. I hope it will help you as much as it helps me.
