  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Control leading in Open Captions

    It would be super if i could control the Leading (vertical distance) between two sentances in Open Captions.
    At this time if i break an Open Captions sentance in two there is no way of controlling the vertical distance between the two parts.
    The default leading is too big in most cases depending on the font which is used.

    Thank you.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. SRT Open caption styling - choosing a font weight in the import settings

    Whilst you can define a custom font in the SRT import settings, it would be great to also choose a custom font weight. Currently this has to be changed via the captions editor after import. If you have a font family, you may have several font weights and there is room for error if you forget to select the correct font weight after import.

  8. Typekit fonts not working with captions

    So far I have only seen this problem on Windows, and not OS X.

    In the caption editor, Typekit fonts show up in the list of available fonts, but when you go to use them, the actual font doesn't change.

    Sometimes the text simply disappears in the Program Monitor. If you revert back to a standard font set, the text reappears.

    It doesn't seem to matter if you restart the program, or even the computer. Change font weights doesn't do anything either with the problem fonts.

    Please note that Typekit fonts work if you use the regular Type tool, but…

  9. Feed scripts into Captions

    Have an option in Premiere to load in a document (e.g a word document) which then completes the captions based on line by line.

    Example: I have a transcript in word, I edit it so the lines are of a suitable length for captions.
    I then load it into premiere, it reads the lines and loads them in as captions, with each line an individual caption piece.

    Ultimate version would have a function where you listen along and press a button to mark where the next line should start and premiere auto adjusts the captions to fit.

  10. Add a rolling edit tool to the captions

    This simple feature would save some time. It would be great if I could use this already existing tool on subtitles.

  11. Home and End keys do not work as expected when editing caption text.

    They jump to the start/end of the entire list of captions rather than the line of text, even while the text box has focus. Please fix this; it makes it extremely time consuming to add proper line breaks to captions.

  12. 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…

  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 are not aligned

    While making subtitles using "Caption" changed the font from Arial to Gilli San and texts appears in the bottom of the Black Bar. Found no option to make it middle align. Please fix this problem.

  16. 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.

  17. Please lock the add new caption to the bottom of the dialog. Right now I have to scroll all the way to the end of my captions to add one in.

  19. Be able to export captions that have been cut down in the timeline.

    I used Captions to cut a video that was in a language that i do not speak. As i cut the video, i did the captions. 1:1 so as to keep the lips and the captions together. now i have a cut up caption on my video that i would like to export as its own new srt file separate from the video so that it can be toggled on/off on Youtube or Vimeo and not burnt on to the video itself, but there is no way to do that. apparently i have to make a new caption file and…

  20. 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?
