TypeStudio was one of my favorite new tools to emerge in the last couple of years. Unfortunately, this morning I learned that it has pivoted and is now focused on podcast editing instead of video editing. Part of that pivot comes with a new name, Streamlabs Podcast Editor (now owned by Logitech).
I have yet to try Streamlabs Podcast Editor. Trying it is now on my list of things to do this week. My initial impression is that Streamlabs Podcast Editor is focused on making it easy to repurpose your existing long-form audio and video content into bite-sized chunks for publication as Instagram reels, YouTube shorts, and TikTok videos.
It also appears that Streamlabs Podcast Editor still uses the same AI that TypeStudio used to automatically remove filler words from your audio. Additionally, editing still appears to happen through the use of text rather than scrolling and selecting from an audio or video track.
Applications for Education
Streamlabs Podcast Editor could be useful for chopping up long video lessons into smaller chunks for your students. After I give it a hands-on trial I’ll know for sure if that’s the case.
