ANNOUNCEMENT - This forum is moving


In an effort to improve communications between you and the Premiere Pro team, we are moving this feedback forum to the Premiere Pro page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum.

This move is happening in part to acknowledge that we haven't been responsive enough here, and we are combining our forums to help remedy that. Ideas and their attached comments from this UserVoice forum will be migrated based on how many people voted for them. Check your profile on the Adobe Support Community to see any migrated posts that you've created or commented on. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.

See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

  1. CEA-608 Background should be black, not defaulted to opaque

    When someone builds CEA-608 captions, it should default to a solid black BG. On my system it defaults to fully transparent, which quite frankly nobody is going to use for closed captions. It took me quite a while to figure out that transparent is the default, because "background" shows as "black", but you then have to force it to go into opaque mode within the menu. If it's opaque, it should show as "Opaque" rather than "Black", with a feature turned on making it opaque!

  3. When I use "Speech to Text", it freezes when I try to nest a sequence.

    If you have created a transcript using the "Transcript" option in the "Text" panel, you will not be able to drag and drop the sequence onto an empty sequence. If you try to do so, Premiere will freeze.
    This problem can be avoided by adding a caption track to the incoming sequence.
    But the hassle stinks.

    ”テキスト”パネルの”トランスクリプト”で書き起こしを作成したシーケンスは、空のシーケンスにドラッグアンドドロップすることができません。これを試みるとPremiereがフリーズします。
    この問題は受け入れる側のシーケンスにキャプショントラックを追加することで回避することは出来る。
    しかし面倒が臭い。

  4. Transition Dissolve on Captions

    I would like to request the ability to add a dissolve transition in/out of my captions layer like we were able to in versions prior to 15.0.

  5. Captioning

    Hi...when I select "Transcribe" I get a screen with "Speaker 1" and my different lines of text. Why are some lines longer and some shorter? When I then choose "Create Captions" it breaks the lines up into much smaller more uniform line lengths. How is this happening? Can I change some default settings at this point? This is great...but...our client has strict guidelines we must follow. 64 character limit (give or take a few) and two lines when possible. It would be great when we choose "Create Captions" to be able to set up some of these default settings. 64…

  6. Set Captioning character length

    Hi...loving Captioning so far. Our Government client, has specific guidelines to follow. We need to be able to set the character limit per section to 64. They also require two lines. I was able to get two lines and to fine-tune the layout with vertical and horizontal controls but it would be great at the start of the process when you select "Transcribe Sequence" to have personal settings that could be saved and reused. After I hit Transcribe I come to the first screen that shows the Captions. Perhaps this area is where we could have the option to set…

  7. Some missing functions for adding new captions

    Please bring back the option to right click on the caption track to create a new title, and also the option to create a new title directly after an existing.

    Now, the + button always creates a new title at the playhead position, but I like to listen first to what is being said, and stop the playhead at a suitable break. The natural thing to do next is add a title at the stop of the previous one and trim or expand the end of the new title to where the playhead is.

    With the old workflow (which def…

  8. I want the automatic transcription function to be essential graphics text.

    The new caption feature is great! Thank you for developing!
    But we have more requests.
    Currently, the recorded voice is made into a text as a "caption".
    We want you to make it as "essential graphics text", not as "caption".

    Because ...
    Captions cannot be styled on a clip-by-clip basis.
    Captions cannot be animated using keyframes.

    Captions can't do what you can do with such essential graphics text.
    We want it to be more flexible.

    【自動文字起こし機能をエッセンシャルグラフィックステキストにしてほしい】

    新しいキャプション機能は素晴らしい!開発してくれてありがとう!
    しかし、私たちはもっとお願いがある。
    現在はレコーディングした音声が「キャプション」としてテキストが作られている。
    私たちは「キャプション」ではなく、「エッセンシャッルグラフィックステキスト」として作ってほしい。

    なぜなら・・・
    キャプションは、クリップごとにスタイルが適用できない。
    キャプションは、キーフレームを使ったアニメーションができない。

    このようなエッセンシャルグラフィックステキストならできる演出が、キャプションではできない。
    私たちはもっと自由度の高いものにしてほしい。

  9. [BUG] Can't jump to next caption

    After working for a while, I can't jump to the next or previous caption with the arrow buttons in the text panel.

    Also, a shortcut for this would come very handy to make fast editing possible.

  10. New captions are blurry

    New caption system is blurry compared to old. See images attached.
    The position of the CC21 sample image is at default. Zero pixels moved.

  11. Fix open caption font problem

    I'm having problems selecting specific font styles from certain open type font families I've installed. I can select say, a bold option, but the font doesn't change. Super frustrating 😬

  12. Can't export .srt captions from Premiere 15 or 15.1 - No file is created. Txt works.

    The captions update has been great so far and up until now has worked, but now I can't export an srt from my updated captions. I made some corrections and wanted to export a fresh srt with a new file name, but nothing happens. It acts like it does, but nothing shows up. What's happening? I need to be able to deliver srts and revisions upon request, how do I fix this? Running Mac Big Sur 11.2.1 and Premiere 15.1.0. Even after updating to 15.1, restarting the machine, and creating a new project, still not able to export an srt…

  13. Transcript "export to text file" in

    BUG: Using 15.2.0 Beta, after a clip has been transcribed, I can see the transcription in the Text window, but the "Export to text file" option is often greyed out. I got it to come back once by creating Captions. More generally, the transcript and caption tabs are often very slow to respond. This will be an incredibly useful feature for me, so I'd love to see it improved. Thanks!

  14. No Embedded 608 Captions if exporting with an Effect

    Trying to export DNXHD with embedded 608 captions. Does not work if I have the "Loudness Normalization" Effect checked. Works fine if I un-check. As a test, I also tried with the "Timecode Overlay" effect. No embedded captions when this Effect is checked either. Windows, Premiere Version 15.1. Worked fine on 14.9

  15. Problem that occurs while typing Japanese.

    The problem occurs while typing closed captions in Japanese.
    If I press the backspace key before finalizing the character conversion and try to correct it, the input is finalized.
    Please make it so that pressing the backspace key does not confirm a character conversion before confirming it with the enter key.
    Please fix this problem.

    Best regard.

  16. New closed captions feature is very buggy

    Having an issue with the new captions system. I am no longer able to embed captions, the option is greyed out and it automatically burns the captions into the screen. Also captions are being duplicated on the screen twice as if the old version is still there along with the new version of the captions. And both are being burned into the screen. Please help!

  17. Caption Styling and shared styles

    Caption style settings that can be sent to different editors, sort of like how we use LUTS. We're currently sharing screenshots of the style settings but have to recreate that every time we do captions.

    I'm currently a part of the beta for the new captions and it's nice to be able to send that style to the CC track, but I'd also like to save that same style and send to the other editors on my team or import the style into my new project when I'm working with captions again.

  19. Please allow the caption background to have the same size. The size of the background changes based on the letter in the sentence.

    caption background should have its own width scaling option. Currently the caption background is based on the sentence, and this causes the background to have inconsistent width. Sentence with Q, P, G will have a wider background compared to those without.
