I own a podcast network, and I'd switch all of our shows to you overnight if you add customization to audiograms. I think the basic features of audiogram customization that would be be most valuable would be (using your first all white template as reference): -replace background image -ability to have the subtitles aligned not only in the middle as they are now, but also on the top or the bottom third of the square. -subtitle line of text (between 'comp title' and speaker) for podcast show name, then episode name -basic color palette for before and after colors -subtitle line of text (between 'comp title' and speaker) for podcast show name, then episode name -font headliner is a poorly designed program riddled with UX issues and buggy software, and they butcher the uploaded subtitles from descript if you try to use 'karaoke' mode. At this point, headliner is such a pain in the ass that I'm having a quicker workflow by publishing your audiogram using a white template, downloading it, creating a Premiere project, removing the white background, repositioning the text, and using effects to modify your color scheme.
Pick Up Editing/Transcribing Where You Left Off
When I return to a project to continue transcribing, it's frustrating to have to find where I left off each time, particularly in a two hour long interview. It'd be nice if I was returned to where I last was when I open up the project.
Filler Words - Don't ignore/remove unless they can be cleanly removed
Many filler words that are automatically removed result in a harsh cut of the audio. I would like an option that only removes filler words that can be cleanly removed. For example, if the filler word has a pause between the start and end of it.
Include Images when Exporting
The amount of time that would be saved if exporting to Premiere included images would be a game changer! It takes a lot of time to place images in Descript and it's unfortunate that I have to basically re-do the images once I open the .XML in Premiere.
Export Audiograms for Editing
I'd love to be able to export the audiograms, much like you'd export a .xml file, for editing in something like Adobe Premiere or similar. It would allow for personal customization rather than copying everyone else, as the platform grows.
Dark Mode: Don’t Forget Pages
Please consider in rolling out dark-mode support that adjustments are also made to the published page. This should literally take not much effort at all as app’s like Noir or Dark Reader can give you a bead start, with Noir looking absolutely beautiful on Descript pages when viewed on iOS. I’m surprised ya’ll haven’t rolled this out yet since it’s the style is already basically sitting at your home page.
A feature where our saved intro and outro will automatically be added to each episode.
Audiograms: Ability to write titles
It's essential for audiograms and video clips that you can have titles to show what the content is about. With the current audiograms, content looks the same meaning viewers will think they've seen the content before if you post multiple audiograms from a single podcast using the same cover art. Add titles and click through rates and engagement (which we all want on our content) will go through the roof. Thank you!
