  1. captions can be improved

    In captions improve alignment option to the text and in the sequence when we adding additional captions its labourious to work with.

    many more options like strokes to text and colour background can be improved as in case of graphics or legacy title

  2. Time duration default for next caption added

    The current time duration for next caption added is 1 second. err... I don't think anyone can read all text in 1 second. I don't really get how creator were thinking...

    Is there a way for us to modify the "out" duration default for the next "add" caption ?

    If not , please change default duration to be somewhere around 10-12 seconds .

    Thank you

  3. Fix the captions effects. I don’t pay over 100 dollars a month for a big pain in the butt!

    I import open captions that are a .srt file. Before a recent update I could edit them and they would update on the fly, now I have to render them just to see my changes and most of the time it refuses to actually make the changes! Most of my time issue today fiddling with the captions to make them work and not actually editing my project. It worked perfectly fine before the last update, why do you continue to go backwards adobe?

  4. Add translucent background effect for closed captions.

    While Closed Captions shows the option for a translucent background, I can't select anything except for opaque. This makes it difficult for my viewers to see what's going on behind the captions. Research showed that this is a wide-spread problem.

  7. Allow the Ability to Select All Captions and Make Changes to Every Single One

    If a .SRT file is imported and the client wants a different font the only way to change it is manually one by one. We should be able to select all and make adjustments.

  8. Enable keyboard shortcut modification for captions

    Enable keyboard shortcut modification for captions. There's currently no easily identifiable way to commit text in captions; when you press enter/return it just goes to a new line, and when you press esc, it deletes everything you've just entered. There should be an option to reassign the esc key to commit text, to bring the caption shortcuts in line with the graphic/titles shortcuts & the shortcuts for the captions window should be easier to find within the program, along with the Adobe website. This suggestion has been previously implemented in Photoshop, and was received well by the community.

  9. Not able to change to opaque background with Captions

    This has become an issue since upgrading to 2018. I'm currently running v12.1.1. This impacts my daily work. Please provide fix asap. The first caption field will default to black background. All subsequent created fields will default to transparent and not allow a change to opaque. This renders the caption utility useless for broadcast work in Canada.

  10. CC Australian OP47 TELETEXT 888

    Currently the mxf export can only embed the CC file using Teletext format 801.

    Please can we have support for more options within OP47 type banner?

    Currently there's no way to select a format type to desired output say 888, customary for broadcast UK broadcast.

  11. Show duration of individual captions in Caption Work Panel and when mouse pointer hovering over a single caption in Time Line.

    Since captioned dialogue typically is preferred to be on screen for about 0,3 sec/word (acc. to BBC guidelines) it would be a great help if you could see the duration of each caption when hovering over a caption and in the Caption work panel rather than just the in- and out points. My brain really hurts :-D when I'm trying to calculate the length of each and every caption in a full length film. Thanks and have a nice day!

  12. Caption + Audio Level Adjustment bug

    Whenever I'm working on Closed Captions and I try to adjust the audio level, my cursor disappears and I can't work in the project anymore. I have to quit the program through keyboard input and start over again. It's a bug that has resulted in so much frustration and having to start over with projects. Please fix this!

  13. After several font changes captions stop previewing

    Noticing that if you make changes to the fonts and then keep tweaking, eventually Premiere just stops updating the preview of the captions and you need to close Premiere and manually clear the caches to solve.

    Also finding that the drag to zoom will often get stuck in that target cursor mode not allowing you to do anything except restart Premiere to get your cursor back.

    Overall the whole caption system in Premiere is pretty buggy.

  14. Missing Leading option (gap between lines) on open captions

    open captions have styling options such as font etc, but the default gap between the lines is too big and you still don't have the option to change this gap (leading).
    Lacking that option will still make this tool irrelevant.

  15. Re-enable free x-positioning of open captions (this worked in PPro2017)

    This refers mainly to open captions for non-TV usage.

    The position of captions does not allow for negative values anymore. So we are stuck with the left margin (x=0) being roughly at the standard "title safe" position. However, if your project is not limited by TV-standards and you want to use the entire screen width for subtitling, you can't. Any title will just go offscreen on the right with no way to re-center it. This was working in CC 2017 when PPro yould accept x values below zero. Please change this back again.

  16. Fixed Close Captions

    In 708, After the first couple, I can't get the boxes to switch colors or the text to switch colors right. I am not asking the world here-because I know there are few options in the true closed caption section, but with the rise of watching without sound on social media-and switching this off and on at will in YouTube, the elements are so buggy as to be unusable. Resetting workspace, copy new project etc, does no good. This is a professional level editor. Fix these bugs so it works correctly!

  17. OP47 for UK and France

    YOu were able to bring in a OP47 MXF and edit with it and preserve the VANC - Now in the most recent releases it stripes it out even with Transcode ANC / VBI selected, it worked in V11 but for some reason it is gone, Also if you create a Australian OP47 (most recent) you can not embed only do as Open ?? Thats madness

  19. Captions Idea

    The captions tool is annoying, and although it is faster than manually writing an SRT file, it's still not optimal in terms of speed. It's definitely slowing us indie houses down.

    What would be ideal, is if the whole captions panel was one big box, in which you could paste the whole text body, and then through editing create the breaks, where the next line should come in.

    This could easily be achieved with a simple STOP button and GO button and it'd work similar to multicam.

    Think of it like an auto-cue, that can be paused when there is…

  20. Caps automatic on at export WYSIWYG

    If we use caps by importing a srt file, could you please set it to ON in export automatically. So it remains What You See Is What You Get and you cannot forget the subtitles on export.
