  1. 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....

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.)

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Captions bug when adjusting duration.

    Using Open captions.
    I'm experiencing a bug when I go back to adjust the length of captions.
    I need to make several long captions shorter. When I go to drag the ends of the caption to shorten or lengthen it, it disappears, setting its duration to 0, the only way I can adjust them is by dragging the time code in the Captions window. Which is slow and tedious.

    I think one of the best caption tools I have seen is Youtube's captioning tools. Which highlight the captions as you scrub through, and allow you to use the space bar…

  10. Not all installed fonts work in Captions

    Not all fonts seem to work with the caption tool. Fonts that might work perfectly in the standard type/text tool will simply not work when trying to use them in Open Captions.

    They just don't seem to register. Although you can select the font from the drop down menu, the actual text doesn't update (note that this is not the same as the usual "captions don't update" issue.). It's as though the font doesn't exist.

    I have no idea why this happens, as these same fonts work perfectly everywhere else (within Premiere, and in any other application I have tried…

  11. 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

  12. Using in-out marks in Captions

    When subtitling with captions I have to go through and manually enter the subtitle in-out points. Could these not be copied from the timeline in-out points? This would make the process quicker, smoother and less likely to end up with a subtitle that does not fit properly because the captions panel has corrupted and ignored the manually entered numbers.

  13. Quality of SRT styled open caption when burnt into video

    When importing an SRT in as an open caption and styling this, to then be burnt into a video, the output of the caption overlay is not of a high quality. There are harsh/jagged edges around the letters. A current workaround is to import the caption at a much larger font (e.g. 100), and then use a motion effect to downscale the whole caption size much further down in order to minimises the harsh edges.

  14. Caption

    Can you add in the caption editor a letter-spacing, also referred to as tracking.
    Is it difficult?

  15. Flexibility to move captions

    It is very painful to use captions while still editing a project. Every time you make changes like adding a new scene, you have to move each caption one at a time to accommodate for new captions. Can you please make captions movable the way other clips are, whereas you can select a bunch of them at once and move them on the timeline as needed?

  16. Open caption styling - unable to tweak line spacing and video size after import

    Under the SRT import settings, two particularly useful settings cannot be change after import: video size and line spacing.

    Changing the video size after import would be highly useful as sometimes a caption may need to be repurposed for different timelines. Alternatively allowing a caption to automatically resize and adapt to different timeline resolutions would be great - that way you could have the same caption file across different timelines without needing to import it 3 times with different settings.

    Secondly, line spacing cannot be changed after import. If you set the line spacing to a particular percentage in the…

  17. Edge rendering issue on close captions

    In Premiere Pro CC 12.1.0 on Mac OSX 10.13.4 there are issues in rendering close caption edges on some characters. The problem appears with the majority of fonts.

  18. Export captions as .vtt (WebVTT) files

    I'd like the option to export closed captions as .vtt files. Some of my clients only accept this format, and doing it manually or with different software is either very time consuming or costly.

  19. Export open captions via AME

    Fix the software so that we can export a video containing open captions via AME without the captions disappearing in the exported video.

    Adobe staff on other threads say this has been fixed with CC2019. It hasn't. This problem has persisted for Y E A R S.

    Yes, I have dynamically linked AE clips in my projects. Yes, I have "burn captions into video" selected. Yes, I have "import sequences natively" selected in AME.

    No, I don't have captions in my final videos.

  20. Improve captions-tool.

    The captions-tool is now only for when the edit is definitely locked. What if the sequence needs to be changed after the caption-file is made? If a new scene is spliced in, we need to move all textcaps, making room for the new ones. But now we can only move them one by one, in stead of selecting many text-caps and move them all in one operation. (Using two or more caption-clips in one sequence is very buggy.)
