**FCP X tends to pull underlying media from a project and this may cause your projects to be longer than expected.

To make sure only your FCP X project (and not the entire clip) gets transcribed, we recommend:

  • Export without the music/sound effect tracks
  • Re-import that to a new project
  • Drag that new project to Simon Says for captioning
