  1. Premiere Pro CC (CC 19 13.0.2) still shifts captions randomly on the timeline

    Captions on a timeline might stay in their place for three or four times saving, exiting and restarting Premiere, but then all of a sudden their in and out points CHANGE, not being in sync anymore. This is an old bug and it is still not fixed, working with subtitles that are burned into the video is basically not possible this way!!

  2. Closed captioning in/out points change after save

    The in and out points change after the project file is saved. For example, if I trim a caption to end at a video cut, the next time I load the project, the outpoint have moved and the caption ends a couple of frames before the cut...

  5. More creative control of Text in Open Captions. Specifically, Leading and Kearning options, and Background Customization.

    Please add more customization options for the Open Captions tool. Leading and Kearning would be great, and the ability to customize the background box. Ex. Rounded corners

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Better caption workflow using .srt Files

    Create a workflow in which importing .srt Files created with a 3rd party program will work without glitches or import errors

    For example:

    When I import .srt files made with YouTube and downloaded, often most of the file does not import. I imported a 5 minute srt file and only the first 2 minutes showed up.

    There is an entire industry built around translators and transcribers using .srt files to give to their clients, so this is an important and much needed workflow.

  9. Open Caption duplicate only working after restart

    Bugreport: I duplicate an open caption, to use its style and formatting on a other timeline in the same project. When I drag it into the other timeline, I can edit the captions, but nothing happens in the programscreen. The old caption stays visible.
    I have to restart Premiere Pro to see the changes made, and only then it works fully functional.

  10. Captions

    Captions run beyond the out point into the clear timeline. Very annoying.

  11. 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).

  12. Closed Captioning

    Tried importing SRT file created on Youtube to Premiere Pro. It works but required a few adjustments to match the resolution size.

    Since this is my first time working with CC, I discovered the issue which is scrolling down to find the highlighted sentence within the CC effect panel. It would be effective if I were to double click the sentence in the timeline and it would automatically scroll itself to selected sentence in the CC panel.

    Right now, I have to scroll down in the CC panel every time I accidentally clicked my mouse at the wrong part in…

  13. 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

  14. Time duration default for next caption added

    The current time duration for next caption added is 1 second. err... I don't think anyone can read all text in 1 second. I don't really get how creator were thinking...

    Is there a way for us to modify the "out" duration default for the next "add" caption ?

    If not , please change default duration to be somewhere around 10-12 seconds .

    Thank you

  15. lock the header of captions panel so you can edit them always seeing the tools

    on navigating through the captions panel, as you scroll down, you do not longer see the tools for formating. please lock it up so its always visible.

  17. Allow the Ability to Select All Captions and Make Changes to Every Single One

    If a .SRT file is imported and the client wants a different font the only way to change it is manually one by one. We should be able to select all and make adjustments.

  18. Open Captions - Italic tags <i>...</i> not recognized on two lines of text

    When I import an .srt file with all some of the text italicized, I see <i>...</i> tags instead of italics in the burned-in subtitles.
    When there is one line of text or one word tagged it comes out as italic.
    When the whole sentence is marked as italic and it's on two lines, Premiere Pro doesn't recognize the tag and displays in in Regular font
    with <i>...</i> tags.

    In order to display italics on both lines of text in one subtitle, each line has to be tagged <i>...</i> separately.
    Please, fix the error, so when a whole block of text…

  19. Exporting Captions

    I am exporting a video in 3 different sizes with burnt in captions. When I export the 1080p version, the captions export fine to the final output. When I export the 1080 x 1920 version and the 1080 x 1350 version, the closed captions do not export with the video. I can see them in the export menu and have tried in both Media Encoder Queue and directly from Premiere. Baffling!

  20. 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.
