  1. Everything wrong with Captions in Premiere Pro 13.1.2. Let get captioning fixed asap!

    Captions in Premiere Pro 13.1.2 have several problems.

    (
    Windows10. May be different on Mac.). Here is a thread of all of the problems I've found in captions so far. While there are several threads already that point out individual issues, I'm hoping that bringing all of the issues together in a single mega thread will help get captions Adobe's prompt attention. Here we go!


    1. NO BURN IN: Exporting a video through Media Encoder doesn't burn in captions even if the "Burn Captions Into Video" option is selected in Premiere Pro's Export Settings. The captions only get burned in if…

    Thanks again for the feedback. We have made sure to have created items in our database for all actionable items. We are hoping you will be pleased by some of the changes we have made in future releases. Please continue to engage with us.

    Note that in the future, while this list is awesome, it is much easier for us to change status on completed items if they are single entry.

    We may close this one eventually but will keep the other individually tracked items open with status

  2. Bug Report - Unmodifiable srt file style

    Some srt file can't be edit in style.
    No font, no color, no size.
    A reboot of PP solve the problem.
    Attached an example of sub that do such bug.

  3. More things wrong with captions

    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/38080990-everything-wrong-with-captions-in-premiere-pro-13

    The above link is a post detailing issues with captioning. Here are some more that I would like to add to the list:

    1.

    The most egregious failing of the system is the text-editing inabilities of the Captions panel. The text box does not respect standard system keyboard shortcuts for caret navigation. All of the following standard text-editing shortcuts, that see heavy usage with document editing, do not work as expected:


    • Home/End: Instead of moving the caret to the start/end of the line, it selects the first/last caption in the list.


    • Up/Down: Instead of moving up/down a line, it…

  5. Option to create & apply presets for caption/subtitle styles

    I'm working with a high volume of SRT files for importing subtitles (open captions), and I currently have to manually adjust the type style every single time I do so. A couple potential solutions that would make this way more manageable:

    1) Presets. There's currently no way to create/apply a style preset for captions — all SRT imports will simply default to the unchangeable default set by Premiere. This would be manageable if there were a style dropdown with the option to save presets, much like in the Export Media window.

    2) Change Defaults in Preferences. There's currently nowhere in…

  6. SRT captions to Essential Graphics

    With social media deliverables becoming commonplace it is very common to need to convert an open-captioned film (ie for Youtube) into a 1:1 Facebook film with burned in caps. The burned-in caps options for SRT files are limited, low quality and buggy. There needs to be an option to convert all captions to an Essential Graphics template that is then itself editable on a global level (in other words all the captions can be changed together, much the same as how Master Styles work). This is not a quirk it is becoming a standard requirement and would massively help a…

  8. Captions Not Updating

    Hi all,

    I've now split my caption bugs into two reports. This one is about captions not updating.

    This isn't something that happens every time, but it happens almost every time. Basically, captions don't update.

    This might be when changing font details, like type, size, colour, etc, but also when changing the content of the caption, or its timing, or its placement. So, the problems are kind of across the board.

    It should be noted that I'm referring to Open Captions, with a sequence appropriate frame rate, and resolution. This applies to imported .SRT files, and captions created directly within…

  9. open captions

    Just confirmed with Premiere 13.1.3 that it's still not possible to export a sequence with open captions using Encoder if there are any dynamically linked AE clips in the sequence you're trying to export.

    My idea is that Adobe fixes this.

  10. Match Frame Captions to the Captions Panel

    It would be great to add a function similar to match frame for clips, but for captions.

    If I have a caption change that needs to be applied to an edit, I have to first match frame the caption clip from the Timeline, which'll then open in the Source Panel. From here I can see the clip's source timecode.

    Next I have to scroll thru the Captions Panel referring to the In and Out points until I come across the caption referenced in the Source Panel. From here I can make my edit change.

    My solution would eliminate this search…

  11. ISSUE: Must exit project and reopen to have any changes appear in closed caption preview. -

    When importing a SRT file (the only way I have used CC) and I make changes - the changes do not appear. I must save the project and exit, restart Premiere for these changes to show. This has been an ongoing issue. PLEASE ADDRESS -

  12. Caption Aliasing

    Hi all,

    I've now split my caption bugs into two reports. This is about the horrible edges around caption text.

    Just as the title suggests, the captions have jagged, aliased edges, as opposed to smooth crisp edges. I don't get the same results when using the standard type tool, or importing PNG files, etc. This is something specially reserved for captions.

    Please note that these issues occur on both Mac and PC, but I'm currently on a Windows system, so I will post the specs for this machine:

    Premiere Pro 13.1.2, build 9
    Windows 10 64-bit (1903)
    Intel i9-9900X
    64GB…

  13. Bug when you trim a caption from the beginning

    When I want to shorten a subtitle from the beginning, it automatically expands to the previous subtitle.

  16. Easy to drag captions

    Why are each caption bit so small in the timeline? You have to be able to hit the right adjustment spot by half a millimeter if you want to adjust the duration of one caption. If you miss, you end up dragging the whole captions section accross the timeline. It would be easier to do this if they become bigger when you adjust the height of the track.

  17. Decode (608/708-A/53/DTVCC Transport) Closed Captions

    Most Professional Broadcasters in North America are using this CC format and have been embedding it in MXF files.

    Premiere is the only program I have found that doesn't decode this type of CC

    I have attached a picture from MediaInfo showing that the CC is present on the file.

    I also attached another picture from VLC (freeware) that also shows the CC is present.

  19. Make captions not be buggy to the point of uselessness.

    What everyone else said 1000 times. Why put a feature in the software that just makes everyone hate you because it's useless?

  20. Duplicating open captions - making edits on duplicate shouldn't affect original

    When you duplicate an open, burned in, caption, the edits you make on the duplicate affect the original. In my situation, I need to make captions in multiple languages. So if I were able to duplicate a caption, put the duplicate on a track above, and edit the new caption according to the pacing and text blacks of the original caption clip, that would save a ton of time. Instead I have to start from scratch in each language.
