  1. Subtitle render in parts

    Please, fix this!

    When I have a almost finished any project and I have to correct any text in my subtitle my project loses all my render preview. It's terrible! Please, create a solution for render captions individually.

    Today, for example, I had a seventeen minutes project with linked comps, graphics and a adjustment layer with film convert... Then, I saw a one-letter-mistake and after change that, bum! My render work down... It's terrible! Is a nightmare....

  2. AI powered transcription

    The captioning system in premiere pro is average but could be so much better. In a perfect world, I would love to be able to put down a caption track and extend it through my timeline and have Adobe Sensei go through it and automatically transcribe the video and then place the transcriptions throughout the project. I do subtitles so much more than I used to considering that most content online doesn't play without audio and is necessary also for the hard of hearing, its fundamentally important in todays society to have a better solution to be able to provide…

  3. Round-trip export/import of Open Captions needs to be WYSIWYG.

    In Adobe Premiere, Open Captions that I export out of Premiere and then immediate import back into Premiere do not match how they were exported.

    Steps to repeat:
    1 - In Premiere, create an Open Caption track. Create a two-line caption.
    2 - Export caption using File > Export > Captions
    3 - Immediately Import that caption file back into Premiere.
    4 - Observe that the imported caption does not exactly match the original.

    (Mostly tested in Adobe Premiere 2017, but I have verified that this problem persists in Premiere 2019 as well.)

  4. More control to the captions

    I would like to have more control over the background box of the captions, to change size and position, it could help solve the extra headspace bug problem that I seem to have. Also, an option for rounded corners could be neat.

  5. Closed Captions Support Embedded in H.264 Files

    Hello.

    We are providing live closed captions for hundreds of our live sports broadcasts. All these broadcasts are encoded H.264 and transmitted using RTMP. At the end of each broadcast, we're like to take our H.264 recording, and edit it in Premiere. Unfortunately, Premiere does not appear to support embedded captions in H.264 import or export. That's unfortunate, since this is now industry standard. I can take my H.264 file with embedded captions and upload it to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and others, and the captions remain without any issues. Adobe Premiere is the only issue in this chain, which is…

  6. Typekit fonts not working with captions

    So far I have only seen this problem on Windows, and not OS X.

    In the caption editor, Typekit fonts show up in the list of available fonts, but when you go to use them, the actual font doesn't change.

    Sometimes the text simply disappears in the Program Monitor. If you revert back to a standard font set, the text reappears.

    It doesn't seem to matter if you restart the program, or even the computer. Change font weights doesn't do anything either with the problem fonts.

    Please note that Typekit fonts work if you use the regular Type tool, but…

  7. Not all installed fonts work in Captions

    Not all fonts seem to work with the caption tool. Fonts that might work perfectly in the standard type/text tool will simply not work when trying to use them in Open Captions.

    They just don't seem to register. Although you can select the font from the drop down menu, the actual text doesn't update (note that this is not the same as the usual "captions don't update" issue.). It's as though the font doesn't exist.

    I have no idea why this happens, as these same fonts work perfectly everywhere else (within Premiere, and in any other application I have tried…

  8. BUG: SRT files don't import completely

    In Premiere 2018 and 2019, the linked SRT ends before line 22 when imported into Premiere.

    The file appears to be valid, and is imported correctly by AegisSub and Vimeo. I can't find a reason Premiere would cut it early—it looks like a bug to me.

  9. Using in-out marks in Captions

    When subtitling with captions I have to go through and manually enter the subtitle in-out points. Could these not be copied from the timeline in-out points? This would make the process quicker, smoother and less likely to end up with a subtitle that does not fit properly because the captions panel has corrupted and ignored the manually entered numbers.

  10. Export captions as .vtt (WebVTT) files

    I'd like the option to export closed captions as .vtt files. Some of my clients only accept this format, and doing it manually or with different software is either very time consuming or costly.

  11. Quality of SRT styled open caption when burnt into video

    When importing an SRT in as an open caption and styling this, to then be burnt into a video, the output of the caption overlay is not of a high quality. There are harsh/jagged edges around the letters. A current workaround is to import the caption at a much larger font (e.g. 100), and then use a motion effect to downscale the whole caption size much further down in order to minimises the harsh edges.

  12. Flexibility to move captions

    It is very painful to use captions while still editing a project. Every time you make changes like adding a new scene, you have to move each caption one at a time to accommodate for new captions. Can you please make captions movable the way other clips are, whereas you can select a bunch of them at once and move them on the timeline as needed?

  13. Control leading in Open Captions

    It would be super if i could control the Leading (vertical distance) between two sentances in Open Captions.
    At this time if i break an Open Captions sentance in two there is no way of controlling the vertical distance between the two parts.
    The default leading is too big in most cases depending on the font which is used.

    Thank you.

  14. Open caption styling - unable to tweak line spacing and video size after import

    Under the SRT import settings, two particularly useful settings cannot be change after import: video size and line spacing.

    Changing the video size after import would be highly useful as sometimes a caption may need to be repurposed for different timelines. Alternatively allowing a caption to automatically resize and adapt to different timeline resolutions would be great - that way you could have the same caption file across different timelines without needing to import it 3 times with different settings.

    Secondly, line spacing cannot be changed after import. If you set the line spacing to a particular percentage in the…

  15. Export open captions via AME

    Fix the software so that we can export a video containing open captions via AME without the captions disappearing in the exported video.

    Adobe staff on other threads say this has been fixed with CC2019. It hasn't. This problem has persisted for Y E A R S.

    Yes, I have dynamically linked AE clips in my projects. Yes, I have "burn captions into video" selected. Yes, I have "import sequences natively" selected in AME.

    No, I don't have captions in my final videos.

  16. Feed scripts into Captions

    Have an option in Premiere to load in a document (e.g a word document) which then completes the captions based on line by line.

    Example: I have a transcript in word, I edit it so the lines are of a suitable length for captions.
    I then load it into premiere, it reads the lines and loads them in as captions, with each line an individual caption piece.

    Ultimate version would have a function where you listen along and press a button to mark where the next line should start and premiere auto adjusts the captions to fit.

  17. Add a rolling edit tool to the captions

    This simple feature would save some time. It would be great if I could use this already existing tool on subtitles.

  18. Get CLOSED CAPTIONS to work! Or take the feature away.

    Captions remain on over footage even though there are no captions in that spot on the timeline. See ATTACHED FILE

  19. Add Curved Corners and Background Scaling to Open Captions

    Add ability to curve the corners on the rectangle behind the Open Caption text. Also add ability to scale up the bg rectangle separate from the text scale itself.
