Easier transcripting in Premiere Pro, equal to PreLude.
We are, in NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting company), working on several big documentary-projects, where transcripting interviews is key to keep an overview of all the interviews and quotes. PreLude, which is a discontinued application, had a good workflow in using the playback-features on an interview while writing the transcript. In Premiere Pro, this is more complicated because we have to stop the video, open the "Comment Marker"-window, write, close the window and play the video again, as in PreLude you could do all this at the same time. If this function was available in Premiere Pro as well, we too could put down the use of a discontinued program such as PreLude.

Hey @Sindre I am wondering how you're using the AI powered auto translate > transcription features in Premiere Pro ? I find them really practical to search and navigate in a speech loaded interview.
BUT I second you on using it as a fast back and forth with comments to speed up derush.
Yes, the ability to make notes on footage (so the clip, not the timeline) without stopping playback or reaching for the mouse!
This seems to be something that no current NLE does well (perhaps FCP but I haven't used it in a decade). I'd expect it to be core functionality - it certainly would be for me. I also used to use Prelude for this purpose.
So we need keyboard shortcuts for each colour marker but also an 'extend clip marker to playhead' shortcut. None of these should stop playback (or even worse - return the playhead to the start of the marker!) and you should not need to use the mouse to enter text.

Are you saying that in Prelude you could edit the caption text while the video is playing and not have to ever stop it? This sounds like a great addition and would speed up my captioning process a lot!
