I've made a little program that will take a Finale generic csv export or a Cobra csv script and generate a subtitle file to go with your show video. The subtitles will show the product names/qty that are being fired. You can easily add the subtitle file to YouTube videos as a Closed/Caption subtitle file.

Here's a video I've added the subtitles to. You have to click the "CC" to turn on the closed captions to see them.

I'll likely post the script soon on my website at Show Script Subtitles - pyro
For now, there are instructions on how to have an automated subtitles file generated via an email-bot.

Let me know what you think. I haven't run it on a ton of scripts yet, so there could be bugs or room for improvement.

This is a very interesting idea. I'll give it a try on a pyromusical I've already uploaded to YouTube. This is great when reviewing previous displays and you wonder what that great effect was!
