  1. Auto sync captions. SRT automatically syncs to correct position like VLC

    I find it quite cumbersome that I have to manually drag the SRT file into visual sync in Premiere Pro constantly when a program like VLC just puts it perfectly into place on a drag and drop.

    My SRT files are made by a different person and currently I have to edit the SRT file externally to have a subtitle at 00:00:00:00 so that I can easily snap it in the timeline. This ensures that the subtitle is synced as the subtitler intended it to be. I then delete the first sub and there you have it. It is finally…

  2. Please allow for editing of caption text using other keyboard shortcut layouts.

    The old closed captions system using the "caption" window allowed for me to change text without needing to worry about triggering shortcuts.

    The new system's "text" window will only let me enter text without issue if I revert back to the default Premiere shortcuts, or resort to editing the caption in the monitor - neither of which are ideal, nor practical when dealing with lots of captions.

    I know you won't revert to the old system, but please fix the lack of compatibility with non-default shortcut layouts.

  3. Fix captioning bug

    When trying to edit captions in Premiere Pro 2021, these glyph characters replace the text, so it's hard for me to edit it. When I exit the editing, the characters go back to normal text. I see others are having the same issue, please fix this bug.

  4. In the new Captions window overrule the functions assigned to keys

    In the new captions window (15.0.0) When I have the functions "go to next edit" and "go to previous edit" assigned to let's say the 'a' and 's' keys. I can not type a's and s's in the textfields because this moves my cursor to the next or previous title.
    That is not normal behaviour of a keyboard in a textfield. I want all functions assigned to keys in my customized keyboard overruled when I start typing.
    (the a and s keys happen to be the standard "goto next" and "goto previous edit" keys in AVID edit applications).

  5. Paint on and other selections no longer available for captions

    Paint on is vital for broadcast commercials. The drop down menu was under the paragraph tools but is now missing.

  6. Duplicate Caption track as a contextual pull down in the track

    I'd like to be able to, for example, use the transcription tool, then convert to a 708 caption track, then control-click on the caption track and duplicate it with the option to make it a 608 track. Right now, I have to go back to the transcription to create the new caption, then any adjustments I made (combining captions, splitting captions, timing changes) need to be manually redone. (unless I'm missing something which is totally possible.)

  7. speech to text translation

    Would it be possible that after the editor has corrected the speech to text transcript it could be re-uploaded to be translated into another language and create another speech to text transcript. So we end up with multiple captions in different languages which the editor can export out as multiple SRT files for uploading to what ever platform they are using all from within Premier Pro.

  8. Premiere 15.0 Captioning Workflow Improvements

    with the new caption functionality (in 15.0) really need to have :
    1. some buttons(shortcuts) to move words up/down to previous/subsequent captions
    2. on two line subtitles want to move words up/down from line one to line two and vise versa easily without having to double click every single time.
    3. Ability to add transitions to at least the top and tail of subtitles

  9. Add quick render options for transcripts and captions

    The transcript/caption feature update is great! what would make it amazing is a quick button on both the transcript and caption windows that give you a quick option to download the transcript as a text document and an option to download the captions as an SRT side car file without having to render the video as well. The use case here is that I'd like to use this feature to go back and transcribe/caption a bunch of videos that I previously produced before this feature was available for ADA compliance. I'd like a quick workflow for doing that.

  10. Issues with using the new Captioning interface

    I am an amateur video editor and I have been using premiere pro since September of 2020. I hand caption all of the videos due to the content using specific technical terms that are not picked up by auto-captions. I really settled into the workflow of the old captioning interface.

    When the update went live, I was unaware of the interface upgrade, or event he update itself. It took me about 2 hours to A. find the new interface, B. figure out how to work within it. I now can work within it but there were some features that were…

  11. Closed Captions in Premiere Pro 15 Nested sequences not embedding but burning in video instead

    I was informed by a TV station after I delivered a new show that the captions were burned into the video rather than embedded for closed captioning. I discovered that my workflow included nesting commercials with the captions in the nest. When exporting to MXF the captions in the main timeline seemed to embed ok, however, the captions in the nested sequences burned the captions into the video so they are visible like subtitles. Which is not what I want. The old version 14.x would export all captions nested or otherwise as embedded. I'm on a 2018 MacBook Pro running…

  12. Portugal portugues is not the same as Brazilian Portugues

    Guys, in the transcript tool we have the Portugese option, but keep in mind, Portugal portugues is not the same as Brazilian Portugues, and its Portugues, and not Portugese.

    Please, with a few modifications, I believe you can put the Brazilian Portugues as an option, as seen you have a lot of market in Brasil too.

    Thanks

  13. Caption Issues

    Hi - the 2021 update for premiere wiped out all my captions from my hundreds of existing timelines. At this point I’d like to go back to the 2020 software but how can I find and restore the “team” project files from before the software update? This is a huge issue for us as we have invested hundreds of hours in building our captionS workflow. Thank you.

  15. Subtitles Improvements

    I'm excited about the improvements to the subtitles. However, I'd like to have the ability to move the text all the way to the bottom of the frame. Also, extend the background box to the edge and bottom of the frame. I would like to be able to import txt files as well as srt files. I often have scripts that I break into subtitles and save as txt.

    Since I switched to Pr, I've still been forced to use Avid for subtitles because of the rich features.

  16. Transcribe Beta

    first of just started to play with the beta transcribe. Brilliant. I have a ten min. interview broken in to 4 segments with voiceover intro and overview, two differrent speakers. cant move the captions around, Assuming that locked at moment. But, the interviewee when transcribe puts below my speaker. Probaly just dumb luck but if it was planned great. When i transcribe the entire video it places mid left. when i transcibe audio only it puts down in closed caption area. Again I understand options are few. I tried to transcibe with the music underscore on it tried for two…

  19. BRING BACK OLD CAPTION FEATURE

    This new subtitle option is terrible. The ability to customize the captions like a regular track was game changer, also the ability to use the same settings without having to change the font saved so much time. Please please please change it back.

  20. Captions 708 output doesn't respect the timeline timecode (Premiere Pro 2021 v15.1 and v15.2)

    Hi,

    When outputting both 608 and 708 captions in a XDCAM-60i MXF OP1a with embedded closed captions, the 608 captions output is fine, but the 708 are offset by 6 frames when compared to the timecode in the Premiere Pro timeline.

    This is the same problem since Premiere Pro 2019, still have to use 2018 to export MXF with 708 in the right place.

    Workflow is an imported MCC file from MacCaption (29.97 drop frame) output to XDCAMHD 4:2:2 50Mbps NTSC MXF OP1a.

    Output file is tested both with Telestream Switch and Premiere Pro (output file imported back in a…
