  1. Cannot type in "Type Caption Text Here"

    The fact that this bug has been going on for years and has not been fixed is very disappointing. Every time I type in the "Type Caption Text Here", no changes are made. I have watched countless videos and read numerous threads, only to come to the conclusion that there is no solution. This is a vital piece to video editing in the modern day market in order to appeal to more consumers. FIX THIS PLEASE

  2. New captions at playhead

    When adding a caption to a captions layer, it should be added at the playhead instead of the end of the previous caption. This would vastly increase the speed with which captions can be added and positioned.

  3. Read embedded CC from within Transport Stream, MXF files, etc.

    Many formats support embedded captions, but Premier won't read them. I have to go through CC extractors and format converters to get them back into a project. It would be great it Premier would read captions from all video formats it supports.

  4. New caption design tool won't let adjust the design only for a certain part of a string

    Right now, on the current caption tool, you could change the design of only one word or only some of the string on each caption,
    analyzing the new caption tool design option (currently available only on Beta), I found it's impossible to do.

    Please add this option before the official release.
    Thanks

  5. Decode EIA-608 A/53 DTVCC on Import

    I have multiple MXF OP-1A XDCAM HD 35 formatted files which have EIA-608 (A/53 DTVCC Transport) text streams but Adobe Premiere does not recognize these captions on import. Is there currently a way within the Adobe Creative Suite to decode as caption files?

  6. Bug : Subtitles are shifted down when italic

    Hello,

    When using the Closed Captions feature, the font shifts down when using italic on a part of the sentence. This is more and less visible depending of the fonts. Here's an image with the same sentence done with the Type Tool (top) and the Closed Captions (down).

    The font used is Manrope (downloaded from Google Fonts), but I've seen similar issues with other typos (Futura, Inter, Helvetica...).

    Issues like this must be a priority to make Closed Captions usable on Premiere.

    Thanks.

  7. Issue : Prem Pro crashs after editing captions

    Hi, since 29.10.20 when editing captions on a timeline, seems to work fine for a minute, then once edited a caption, Prem Pro crashs and becomes unresponsive. I am having to task manager close the app, and restart to continue to edit, however everytime I edit a caption, same issue.

    I have rolled back one update to see if this resolves my issue, however I still have the same experience.

    Can anyone help?

  8. SCC import result in fixed timebase 29.97

    When importing a scc file on a video we see that at the end of the video the key's don't match. Changing the source settings of the scc file to 25 fps doesn't change this while we would expect that this should solve the problem.

  9. Captions: Style Presets

    Importing an SRT allows for style presets, however, for captions that are created within Premiere, the same style presets can't be used.

    Advice from Adobe was to export captions made in premiere as an SRT sidecar, then import them to use the preset. This seems like a long winded process, and would save so much time if it was fixed.

    Additionally, copy and paste short cuts don't work on effects, in the effects control panel on caption files for some reason. Manually right clicking copy and paste do the job, but cmd+c cmd+v don't work. Just a bug I think.

  10. Spanish Close Caption for Latino high school English Language Learners.

    My school district has a license for the Cloud. Great tool. We have a significant Spanish speaking population. Your close caption feature is amazing but I find it puzzling it lacks Spanish. Please consider adding the feature. The impact on student learning will be incredible. Thank you for considering my suggestion.

  11. AI Detection of Graphics/Faces for Captioning

    It would be useful to have an AI feature that would auto-detect graphics and faces in a video to place captions in locations that do not cover graphics and faces in the video. This would speed up the captioning process significantly.

  12. Caption exports do not retain style and size changes

    Tested an .srt subtitle language file from REV, imported into an HD timeline. Made size and style changes and exported two different ways-

    1) Using Export Media dialog>Captions pane, which includes a "Include Style settings" checkbox, which I checked. Selected sidecar file.

    Round-tripped it back into the same HD timeline-- no size style changes retained.

    2) Used File>Export>Captions, which allows you to export just the sidecar, no movie, and also includes the Styles checkbox.

    Round-tripped the export back into Premiere to see that, once again, absolutely no style changes have been retained.

    How can I deliver this to the client…

  13. Prevent Media Encoder from rendering Closed Caption import files

    Oh, boy I've been reading the threads asking for AME to render imported CC and .srt language subtitle files-- I don't want it!

    I am not yet a veteran CC producer. Like many, I've been drawn into the requirement as editor.

    I have fresh downloads from REV in three popular timecoded formats. The minute they land, AME pounces on them. So I figured, OK, let it work.

    Three hours later (these are all feature length files), I tried laying what was a .scc file, now a rendered .mov file, into my testbed HD timeline.

    I gave it a chance. No…

  14. When importing and exporting an .srt allow position of the captions to be carried through.

    I need to import .srts sometimes the postioning has already been adjusted but it is lost when imported. After creating a new version and exporting the .srt any postioning is lost.

  15. Add leading to captions

    I am very glad this feature was added a while ago! It it helpful to have.

    My request is for leading control.

    When my selected font is used, the descenders fall off below the black background box which is ugly. I need to be able to adjust the text leading to move the font back onto the box.

    Thanks for considering.

  16. New caption starts at play head option

    When adding a new caption it would be nice to have the option to have the caption start from the play head, instead of starting at the end of the last caption, a simple button next to the plus and minus buttons would be great to toggle between the two modes. This would be a lot easier than using the stretch tools on the timeline which are so fiddly to use. Making these less fustrating to use would also be very welcome!

  17. 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…

  19. Improved Closed Captions Settings

    COPY/DUPLICATE A CAPTION - It would be a lot convenient to be able to copy or duplicate a sentence or a line in a closed caption item inside of itself. This will save a lot of time when we're making a lyrics caption where chorus and some verse have the same words.

    CAPTION LENGTH OPTION - Most of the captions or sentences I add in my closed captions takes a long time to be read. I wish there is a way to just change the default length of a caption when you click the add a caption button. This will…

  20. BUG: Captions - importing .srt - need to shut PP before editing

    When I import an .srt file. I then add as a video track in my sequence to start viewing/editing using Captions Tab - But the edits don't appear in programme viewer i.e. the edit changes.....

    Before I can edit the text, I need to shut down PP and reopen it, then the edits are as live. If I try to edit the text, font size etc etc before I've done this, it works in the Captions editor, but doesn't display until I've restarted PP.
