  1. Home and End keys do not work as expected when editing caption text.

    They jump to the start/end of the entire list of captions rather than the line of text, even while the text box has focus. Please fix this; it makes it extremely time consuming to add proper line breaks to captions.

  2. SRT file edits are not appearing in timeline.

    Background color and size changes appear in the Captions panel but NOT in the timeline. All was well earlier today. I closed project, reopened, and now the SRT file cannot be edited.

    Earlier issue was I edited SRT file, change appered in timeline as expected, but change would not appear in the export via encoder.

    Restarted, solved that problem, but then the bkgnd color and size appear to resist being edited.

    In attached screengrab, note captions panel with red background on left, and Program panel in right, with Black background and small font.

    Generally, captions are ****** in Premier. Very…

  3. SUBTITLES as RESOLVE

    You could add a character counter and a warning if the number of characters in the subtitles is exceeded, such as in DaVinci Resolve.

  4. Let us switch from one caption mode to another without having to retype everything

    I can’t believe we’re unable to just switch between one caption mode to another and keep our work. It would be so much easier if we could just switch from open caption to closed caption rather than having to retype every single entry every time.

  5. Captions are not aligned

    While making subtitles using "Caption" changed the font from Arial to Gilli San and texts appears in the bottom of the Black Bar. Found no option to make it middle align. Please fix this problem.

  6. More creative control of Text in Open Captions. Specifically, Leading and Kearning options, and Background Customization.

    Please add more customization options for the Open Captions tool. Leading and Kearning would be great, and the ability to customize the background box. Ex. Rounded corners

  7. Bug: In Media Export, "set start timecode" option applies only to video and not to closed caption sidecar

    The "set start timecode" option should also apply to a sidecar caption that goes with a video file.

  8. Open Caption duplicate only working after restart

    Bugreport: I duplicate an open caption, to use its style and formatting on a other timeline in the same project. When I drag it into the other timeline, I can edit the captions, but nothing happens in the programscreen. The old caption stays visible.
    I have to restart Premiere Pro to see the changes made, and only then it works fully functional.

  10. captions continue past the end out point in edit.

    Captions from a previous clip, or sequence, still remain visible past the end point out of the edit. See attached file. This has been a constant issue in every new version of PPro. PLEASE FIX this and if possible, try to include more options for kerning in the text.

  11. Make Caption exporting available from more menu options

    It's very difficult to find how to export Captions. It's ONLY available if you highlight the item in the Projects display window as a right click or from File > Export.
    It is NOT available when the captions are highlighted in the Timeline.
    It's greyed out as an Export option if you don't have this project item selected.
    It is not available through the Media Export ... as you cant switch off Video and Photo.
    - Can it be available and not greyed out if you have a caption track (if you had more than one caption tracks you could…

  12. Premiere Pro Closed Captions to support V-Chip / MPAA / "Canadian English Language Rating System"

    Other software packages that support closed captions allow for the creation/inclusion of regional ratings. Everything that is broadcast in Canada requires captions, and our BDUs require embedded ratings.

    Right now we require other software to accomplish this. In some instances we are re-encoding AME mezzanine files simply to apply V-chip ratings. If Adobe supported the creation of V-chip ratings we would no longer require competing software for a number of our workflows.

    Please see attached and the following thread for examples.

  13. Premiere Pro CC (CC 19 13.0.2) still shifts captions randomly on the timeline

    Captions on a timeline might stay in their place for three or four times saving, exiting and restarting Premiere, but then all of a sudden their in and out points CHANGE, not being in sync anymore. This is an old bug and it is still not fixed, working with subtitles that are burned into the video is basically not possible this way!!

  14. Bug fix / Feature change Request: Please add availability of File Format window to the Embed in output file dialog box.

    September 26, 2018 7:19 PM
    Bug fix / Feature change Request: Please add availability of File Format window to the Embed in output file dialog box.

    Problem in short: .MCC will not embed both 608 and 708 properly unless .MCC is selected in the Create Sidecar File Menu first. The issue creates a scenario where you are expecting 608 and 708 caption files to be embedded in the output file, but when happens instead is only the 608 Captions are embedded.

    Problem longer description: I discovered that .mcc caption files, containing 608/708 captions, do not properly Embed in output file…

  16. Make Subtitling Easier

    What about having a tool that makes subtitling easier. If you could import a textfile with gaps between the text that belongs together and having a shortcut that hits a new subtitle in whenever you hit it. You could easily read your translated text, see when the speaker starts speaking (on the audio track) and after watching the whole video for once, just hit enter and everything will fall in place. That would be amazing!!!

  17. Add option to keep spaces at end-of-line in imported captions/subtitles

    When importing captions, apparently trailing spaces at end-of-line are automatically removed. Due to a bug (I have just reported it), partly opaque background behind the captions are not lined up properly at the right side, placing the edge of the rectangle too close to the text. This can be redeemed by putting an extra space at the end of each line of text, but because they are automatically removed during import, this must be done manually. Very cumbersome! It would be easier to add the space using other software before import and retain it.

  18. Auto Play and Stop when typing closed captions.

    Is there any way to have an option (via Tick box, Radio Button, etc...) that when editing CC's the video automatically plays and pauses as you start and stop typing. Something similar to the features YouTube has. That would make at least one of our lives 1000 times easier.

    Also, while I'm in here, I find when adding in CC's the ability to have them snap to the playhead would be a feature I would like. I'm constantly dragging around the timing.

    Thanks foe the consideration

  19. 708 Closed Captioning

    Just like open captions have been buggy, so have closed captions in the past release of CC. I shouldn't have to re-import a .mxf into my timeline to see why only two of three captions that I embedded and exported are showing up and only one is actually playing back.

    To add, it would be wonderful if something other than a .mxf could be used as something we could embed 708 captions to (i.e. .mpeg2, .h264 - something).

  20. 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.
