How to export a manuscript

The export can be done both via the project overview and directly from the editor.

  1. Open the context menu.
  2. Select the “Export document…” option.
  3. Optional: Change the “Timecode Offset”.
  4. Optional: Change “Frame Rate” (e.g. round to 24fps instead of 25fps).
  5. Select a “Document Type”.
  6. Optional - when exporting as .docx: adjust the “Timecode Format”.
  7. Click on “Download”.

Your browser will now download the document in the desired format.


Frazier currently supports the following text formats or document types for export:

SubRip (.srt)
A widely used subtitle format that contains the text in addition to the start and end timecodes.
WebVTT (.vtt)
Similar to SubRip. Is primarily used for videos on the internet to transfer the subtitles and display them in the video player.
CSV (.csv)
All information in tabular form. Well suited for opening and further processing the texts as a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel, Apple’s Numbers or LibreOffice Calc. Note that texts are not formatted.
XML (.xml, .ttml, .exb)
There are various XML based exports. Use these to exchange information with other programs. Rarely used, but if your client asks you about it, take a look at these formats…
Open Office XML / Word (.docx)
Export your manuscript including timecode, dialogue/instructions and descriptions. This allows you to export a “classic” manuscript, such as the one used in the recording studio for voice recordings. Compatible with Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, LibreOffice Write and similar programs. *
Backup (.adc)
Our own document format (.adc). Use this format to create a complete copy of your work. Only this format contains all additional information such as used votes, comments, tags, etc.!

*Tip: It is possible to create your own Word templates and thus customize the appearance and scope of the manuscripts. For more information, see the DOCX templates chapter.
