  1. Please add caption embedding for mpeg2 files!

    mpeg2 is a standard delivery format for several television stations we deliver paid programs to. It is presently a pain to get those particular files encoded with captions and I am going to look at other NLE options if Adobe doesn't get on the ball and add this soon...

  2. Captions crashes often. Multiple bugs in captions.

    The captions system is VERY buggy:
    1. It's crashed Premieremultiple times.
    2.It has frozen the movement ( but not buttons) on my mouse.
    3. It can only display frames not time code.
    4 Pasting into the IN and Out boxes doesn't always work.

  3. SRT problems after last update

    Hi,

    since the last update to 13.14 (build 2), the SRT files I imported are offline. When trying to relink them, I get a message " the importer reported a generic error".

    Before I had no problems opening the files.

    Thx

  4. More caption problems - I am shocked at how bad it is!? Is this the quality of Adobe?

    Probably no Adobe employee will so this, since the captions are NEVER fixed, but here it goes:

    Captions in Premiere is pathetic. I know, I have been using it for a few years.

    Even trying to work around the bugs is impossible.

    Since we cannot control the spacing of the lines between the captions I have tried this:

    I duplicated the caption to have different one for the second line (for when it is needed), only to find out that both caption files are still connected.

    Making changes to one, traverses to the other, regardless of them being completely different…

  5. Captions, lock the layer so we don't move it unintentionally

    If you drag the in or out point of a caption on the captions layer sometimes you can accidentally move the entire layer along the time line. If we could lock the layer but still be able to edit and add captions this would prevent this issue from happening. Currently if you lock the layer you can not edit it, just as you want the lock to work for any other layer.

  6. "GO TO NEXT CAPTION" Shortcut

    You should be able to make a shortcut to go to next caption in the same way you can do with markers.

  7. Vertically align Open captions text against background box.

    Please make the Open Caption text properly centered vertically against the background box and add the option to adjust it's position.

  8. Add BBC/Netflix EBU-D-TT .xml subtitle export option

    Adding this would allow to deliver series to Netflix or BBC through Adobe suite without any need for external subtitling software. At the moment you only export .stl .srt and .xml (but a smpte one - not a TT version) which aren't viable options for deliveries, especially not in the universe of SDH (Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing) for big platforms.

  9. Enhance captions by adding more controls

    This idea is based on open captions.

    I really like using Premier's captions because it's a very efficient way to add captions and edit them as needed.

    However, there really seems to be a lack of editing controls to get what you need. For example:

    • There are no options to have super and subscript text.

    • You cannot adjust the position of the black bar.

    I had a huge video and got all my captions set only to discover that I have to redo all captions manually since no superscript feature is available.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  11. Bug when exchanging captions via "Replace Footage..."

    When trying to replace an .srt file with an updated one (which is very common e. g. after a typo has been found and corrected), the file will not actually update in the timeline. My specific file got replaced in the project panel (I can open it in the captions panel and see the changes there) but it does not update in timelines, or at least not every time! In those cases when I'm not involved in the review process for the captions, it is almost impossible to figure out if the file was replaced correctly, because I don't know…

  12. Open Captions batch shift and line spacing

    I NEED to be able to batch shift/move captions across the timeline. right now you can only move around one at a time. I can't believe this isn't an available feature. Please update.

    Second is open caption line spacing. I can import an SRT as an Open Caption with special line spacing. But I can't adjust line spacing when creating new captions in the caption settings. This needs to be updated fast.

  13. 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....

  14. Keyboard shortcut for in/out point for captions

    When listening to the audio to type the caption, it would be nice if we could map a shortcut key to set the in/out point to the CTI

  15. captions bug with styles while adding multiple captions

    Hello. I think it's a bug in premiere, can't explain it otherwise.
    The problem is in captions window. I use File-New-Captions-Open Captions-Square Pixels. Then I start adding captins using Captions window and "+" Button. For the firt 3-4 pieces styling works fine, style of captions looks mire oe less the same (black bacground, positioning), I just need to adjust size. But when I push + Button for the 3-4 time suddenly black backgrpund is not there anymore and I can not turn it on. "Backgound color" button does not show anything.

  16. Allow me to save custom caption templates

    Most of my projects require open captions for exporting, and I'm required to use my company's specific visual identity guidelines for these captions (specific font, specific background color / opacity, specific alignment). As it currently stands, I have to set all of these parameters manually for every project. It would make so much sense and save so much time to be able to store these settings as a preset.

    Someone suggested I use the "import settings" button along with a "dummy" srt file to hold the settings, but doing that for open captions does not allow me to use the…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.)

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
