  3. Allow captions to be placed anywhere

    The new captioning tool severely restricts where captions may be placed. For my purposes I need to have my captions almost touching the bottom of the frame, yet PP 15.0.0 won't allow me to do that.

    Even when I adjust the "Set Vertical Position" number to be low enough, it just won't respond past a certain number.

    This image shows the lowest that PP will allow the user to place their captions. Why can't we override this??

  4. New captions issues

    Been using this for like 10 minutes and already frustrated by a few things.
    - My forward and back edit hotkeys are W and S, and my left and right by one frame hotkeys are A and D. Whenever I edit a caption's words using these letters, it just switches back to the timeline and performs whatever action I pressed (ie if I type "s" to fix a word, it'll just go to the next edit point and I'll be moved out of the Text window. I literally can't type that letter into the captions).
    - Track style is not…

  5. Separate X & Y size for subtitle background

    With the new captions workflow, where you can treat the style/look of your subtitles with the Essential Graphics interface, it would be helpful if the background size could be adjusted on X and Y separately. Often, not the same space is needed for both. Sometimes, more space is needed on the sides, than top and bottom.

  6. Completely wrong captions

    i used a video with a clear and loud german voice. I want to have english caption. In the result, not a single word is correct. Absolutely unusable. What is wrong? Peter

  7. Captions Don't Export with Audio Effect

    When exporting an MXF OP1a video, embed captions in the output file doesn't work if I have the effect 'Loudness Normalization' selected. Otherwise captions export. I didn't try any other effects to test it. 608 and 708 captions exported fine unless I had .Loudness Normalization' effect selected.

  8. Convert CC tracks to essential graphics

    With the new CC/subtitles work flow, it's only possible to show one CC/sub layer at a time. Most of the time, we use multiple onscreen languages at a time so it would be neat if you could, after importing and dragging your .SRT to a CC track, select your Subtitle track and convert all titles to Essential Graphics clips that you can use on a video layer. It would then be possible to show multiple languages all at once as burnt in subtitles.

  9. Adjustable Subtitle Lengths

    After I finish editing the transcript and push the button to create captions, it would be helpful to have one or two options about where to divide the captions. Here's why.
    When I'm creating captions for Youtube, I want the auto translator to have the best chance of working correctly by dividing the captions by sentences or phrases. A complete phrase with at least a noun and a verb will most likely be translated correctly.

    So if I can specify a preference for complete phrases or sentences that would be awesome.
    The captions will be longer than the auto-captioning algorithm…

  10. Allow caption import with "empty" lines

    Captions are frequently generated by third party captioners with "blank" lines indicating a duration of silence. For example:

    1
    00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:08,080

    2
    00:00:08,080 --> 00:00:09,230
    Welcome, everyone.

    This indicates that the first ~8 seconds of the video are silent. However, when importing that caption into Premiere, it ignores the blank line, treating "2 00:00:08,080 --> 00:00:09,230 Welcome, everyone." as the text for the first caption.

    It would be helpful if Premiere could parse the blank line as {empty text} so that the correct ordering and timing of the captions is maintained.

  11. Fades for "burnt-in subtitles"

    Hi, sometimes it would really be very cool to add a fade-in/fade-out to captions that are only in Overlay mode and will be burnt-into video files during export.

    (eg: Opera: singer sings very slowly and a faded caption would dramatically improve the artistic effect of the subtitle).

    It is possible to do that in the AVID Mediacomposer.

  12. SRT styling export not working

    Styling is not included in the exported SRT file when checking the "include SRT styling" checkbox in the Captions tab of the Export Settings window using the new captioning workflow in Premiere Pro CC 2021.

  15. Re-enable match frame capability for editing caption files.

    Used to be able to edit caption files just as video files including match frame to the source file. Can't match frame with version 15.

  16. Deactivate ‘Selection Follows Playhead’ when adjusting caption blocks

    I love the new Captions in PP 2021. What I don’t love is needing to remember to disable ‘Selection Follows Playhead’ before adjusting the length/position of the caption blocks. Tweaking caption blocks without first turning this off can result in some screwed up timelines.

  17. Loop function for caption segment

    When using the new caption tool for Premiere Pro 2021 I would like to see a play & loop function for the active text segment. While transcribing it would make it so much easier and faster if the timeline looped the time of the segment. (I've seen this function in the video editing software Camtasia)
    Example:
    I've set a shortcut key for "add new caption segment at playhead".
    When pressing the shortcut key or the +-button in the text tab, I wish it would (1) automatically add a new caption segment, (2) activate the field for typing text (in the…

  18. Difficulty with Arabic captions in version 15.0

    In almost all fonts, the standard unicode for Arabic ligatures is not displayed as it should be (ex. ﷺ).

    Additionally while the right to left feature for Arabic text appears, it is unable to be used and the Arabic displays incorrectly.

  20. More robust caption functionality

    The new (v15) captions are an improvement but I'd like to see the following:


    1. Functionality for R-L text. Arabic appears correctly in the caption window but displays L-R in the timeline/program monitor.


    2. We'd like to ditch our expensive to MacCaption but we need a way of importing translated timed transcripts into Premiere. The .srt export is great but we need some type of text file import to preserve timing in our language translations w/o having to cut and paste into each caption (or lean on MacCaption to export to .srt just to reimport into Pr).


    3.Add auto import settings where…
