Post Production Transcription and Transcripts

This type of transcription only applies to broadcast delivery versions of motion pictures, television shows or documentaries.

For rough cuts or assembles see TV 'as-broadcast'.

A Full Continuity transcript is a highly detailed, cut-by-cut transcript that lists all dialog, music cues, credits, on-screen graphics, scene descriptions, timecode and feet and frames (as applicable). Timecode spotting is either done on a cut-by-cut basis or for each line of dialog.

  • Cut-by-Cut spotting means that the timecode will mark the beginning and end of each edit in your production.
  • Dialog spotting is more intensive and indicates that each line of dialog will be marked with timecode as well as the beginning and end of each shot.

Full Continuity transcripts are most often used to fulfill contractual delivery requirements for foreign broadcast and distribution. It has been our experience of late with documentaries and television shows that Lite Continuities are more than enough. This is due to the significant price difference between a Full Continuity and a Lite Continuity and the continuing decline of TV production budgets. Please consult your delivery requirements contract to be sure which you will need.
