Sync Pop Up transcripts with your Adobe projects
We want Pop Up Archive to connect to your other tools as seamlessly as possible. We’re excited to announce that you can use our new Adobe plugin to connect Pop Up Archive timestamped transcripts to projects in Adobe Premiere and Audition!
Adobe’s Nakiesha Koss sat down with Pop Up Archive CEO Anne Wootton and software engineer Shindo Strzelczyk to learn more about the plugin.
Where does Pop Up Archive intersect with Adobe video and audio tools?
AW: Ultimately we want the data Pop Up creates to be helpful for editing and producing audio and video, which is where our technology dovetails nicely with Adobe tools. People working with Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition are in many ways our ideal users as they understand the core fundamental reasons Pop Up Archive was created. We’re excited to get in front of more people through plug-ins in these Adobe tools.
SS: When considering how to best develop for interoperability with Adobe applications, we realized our website was already really easy to navigate. So instead of creating something from scratch, we made a window to our site inside the software. Users can drag and drop from within their editing program. The scrubbers are synced, so in the Pop Up Archive extension you can click on the exact moment you want to edit and go directly there in Premiere Pro or Audition.
With the “Import to Premiere Pro” button, users can import a transcript to the metadata of their project. All the code lives on our servers, so updates in our system are immediately reflected in the extension. It’s very intuitive for anyone who is familiar with the Pop Up Archive website.
Now that it’s out there for people to use, what’s the best part?
AW: We are constantly thrilled to hear from reporters and radio hosts who are using Pop Up Archive to log and produce stories that might otherwise be impossible. We’ve also gotten to work with some really special collections. The day-to-day feedback is extremely fulfilling.
