  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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. 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!

  14. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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!!!

  19. Closed Caption issue on 708 and 608

    I use Maccaption and Caption Maker to produce Closed Caption.
    When I import the .MCC file in premiere, there are some problems. Like:

    When I select 608 CC in premiere, some accents are lost, for example: "por quê você" It appears like this in Premiere "por quê voc". When I select 708 CC it loses the positioning made in Caption Maker. Lines on bottom appear on top, lines in right appears on left. I don't know ow what to do anymore, I asked Telestream support, but they say that is a issue is Premiere Pro, Adobe doesn't give any answered.…
