Easily generate CCSL files using our custom exporter to create fully formatted CCSLs in DocX and CSV formats.
In the world of film and television, a CCSL (Combined Continuity, Dialogue, and Spotting List) is a crucial document used in post-production. It's essentially a shot-by-shot breakdown of the final video, combining three key elements:
It serves as a single source of truth: With all the visuals, dialogue, and audio information in one place, everyone involved in post-production, from editors to music supervisors, can access and reference the same document.
It streamlines post-production: Having a clear breakdown of each shot and its elements helps the team work efficiently and ensure consistency throughout the final product.
It facilitates deliverables: CCSLs are often required by distributors and broadcasters as part of the delivery package for a film or show.
Overall, a CCSL is a powerful tool that plays a vital role in bringing a film or TV show to life in the editing room and beyond.
Closed Caption Creator makes it easy to create CCSL files by allowing users to export multiple Event Groups at one time. This allows teams to organize their work into separate Event Groups to easily focus on one task at a time. Write you shot descriptions, without having to worry about the dialogue elements. Transcribe dialogue without worrying about shot changes.
CCSL files can be exported in multiple formats, including Microsoft Word documents (.docx), Excel (.xlsx), and CSV.
