We are proud to announce the new release of Limecraft Flow! In this post, we give you an overview of what changed. The main focus for this release has been on the player controls and controls to control the timing of subclips, subtitles and transcript text.

Changes to player controls

The basic player controls have been extended. We added reverse playout, and navigation to the next and previous clips.

The Limecraft player comes with professional controls, allowing you to modify the playout speed, use backward play, and to go frame by frame

These controls and their shortcuts are now consistent throughout all aspects of Limecraft Flow (Logging, Transcription, Subtitle Editor).

Changes to the Transcriber

The controls look a bit different, but don’t worry, everything is still there!

Limecraft transcriber gets new controls and hot keys to more intuitively navigate and correct the transcript

Some controls will only work when a text selection is made:

Adding new timed text is now done by clicking SET IN (instead of holding down the record button). You can start typing text as soon as you’ve set your IN point.

Changes to the Subtitle Editor

The controls were reorganised for a consistent feel throughout the entire Flow platform.

Here as well, the controls were reorganised for a consistent feel throughout the entire Flow platform.
