Adjust speed of all clips in bulk
Good Evening Descript Team,
I am writing to express my profound disappointment and frustration regarding the unavailability of the AI text-speed audio editing feature that was advertised in your tutorial video:
which ultimately led me to sign up for the Pro version of your video editing software.
When I initially saw the promotional video, I was genuinely excited and impressed by the seamless AI text to voice editing capabilities showcased. However, after purchasing the Pro version and eagerly trying to utilize this specific feature, I was dismayed to find that it was not available. Upon further investigation, I discovered that other users have been experiencing the same issue since November of last year as showcased in this thread, with no apparent progress or resolution in sight.
As a professional in my field, I understand that software development can be complex and time-consuming. However, I believe it is the responsibility of a company to accurately represent the features and capabilities of their product, and to provide clear and timely communication regarding any issues or delays that may impact the user experience.
Unfortunately, it appears that your company has not upheld these standards in this instance. The lack of transparency and communication regarding the unavailability of this feature has been both disappointing and frustrating, particularly given the monetary and time investment made in purchasing the Pro version of your software.
In light of these circumstances, I kindly request that you provide an update on the status of the text editing feature, including a realistic ETA for its implementation. Additionally, I would appreciate it if you could consider offering compensation for the inconvenience caused by the unavailability of this feature, such as a full refund or an extension of the subscription period because I'm unable to complete any of the projects I was looking to complete given the lack of this very specific feature which is essential to my work.
I truly hope that your team can prioritize resolving this issue and improving communication with your customers, in order to maintain the professional reputation that I initially believed your company to have.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I look forward to your prompt response.
*EDIT: I've also tried on the Beta version and the feature was unavailable there despite being advertised as available in this comment thread on 3/15.
Hi folks, can someone ELI5 how to use this feature? I'm on version 60.1.1, and can't figure it out.
Pranav Vishnu is this feature available in this version?
marked this post as
Currently available on the beta version of the app, should be released to everyone soon.
Pranav Vishnu: how to access this option?
Don Emil: You can get the beta app from here: https://help.descript.com/hc/en-us/articles/10614550133645-The-Descript-beta-program. Then just select a range of text or clips and adjust speed from the property panel.
Pranav Vishnu: got the beta, it looks like changing the clip length is the way to change the speed. - although clip length was visible on the version of the beta I got - could not find the option to change the length.
Pranav Vishnu: Fantastic!
Pranav Vishnu: After the recent software update (today) the Clip Speed doesn't change from 1x and, no clips are shown in the beta release to change all clips to, say 0.9x. Effectively, I can't work out how to adjust the clip speed anymore. Can you please point me in the right direction?
Matthew Graham: Same here. Even unable to change single clip speed.
Sohail K: Matthew Graham Pranav Vishnu The fact that a team/support rep hasn't been in contact here in over 2 weeks is very disheartening.
The complete lack of awareness to take down tutorial videos surrounding features of the software which aren't available is astounding.
Everyone here deserves a month free of charge or an immediate refund if they choose.
@Team - Do better if you're going to charge $30/month.
Karl: Not resolved and have no idea when it will be resolved. These are critical features on which we bought. Getting disappointed day by day. One month's refund would not be sufficient.
Please! let's make it happen, even better if it can keep the original pitch!
yes it is one of the major option to have.
Its really needed for Youtube Shorts
It's especially important when creating short form videos like Youtube Shorts, where some sections, or even the whole video, can be speeded up just a touch so it's still easy to understand but isn't missing important information.
This is a feature on the classic version that I am really missing in Storyboard!
