  1. Convert Subtitle Text Timeline Text

    Because a lot of people use the captions for burn in text, we need to be able to do more with that text. For example: Add transitions to the caption text or put elements on top of the text.
    Or just be able to convert the subtotal text into timeline text.

  2. Adobe Premiere crashes every time I write the word "different" or "first" in my caption track.

    That's pretty much it. I'm adding a new caption to my caption track, and it unexpectedly crashes every time I type the word "diff" or "fir."

  6. Each time I am trying to do subtitles, Premiere is crashing. It cannot even open files with subtitles anymore.

    Just please remove this bug, I have tried with different laptops, so it has to be a bug.

  7. caption characters clip on bottom

    There is a bug, characters clip on the bottom of the subtitles. Characters like g and j clip if you bottom align and use the bottom zone. The work around is to center align and then drag down the scale of the caption box. The issue is the caption box won't go lower to where is previously was with bottom align and bottom zone so you lose about 40-70 pix.

  8. Actually SPLIT captions, Not duplicate

    Make split captions actually split captions where the mouse cursor is instead of duplicating it, similar to ProPresenter word breaks.

    Also, maybe make the captions sortable or draggable in the captions window.

  9. transcription in German not working

    The transcription process is not working for the German language. Has anyone else experienced this? It gets stuck on Initialising local transcript engine and does not move forward from there.

  10. Captions need to stop when the dialogue stops - need maximum length parameter

    I love the new closed caption capability - thank you.
    However it has a significant problem: it does not correctly calculate the time to STOP displaying the caption.

    So if you have a narration audio track with short chunks of narration, the captions continue to display until a couple of seconds before the next chunk begins - resulting in an absurdly long time on screen.

    See the sequence illustrated in the screenshot attached. Some of the captions are stretched for a very long time - eg 34 seconds to read 15 words.

    Suggested fixes in order of complexity:
    - Stop…

  11. Enable multiple captions track at same time

    I used to add multiple captions in order to have two languages subtitled. Now I need to do that again but I can't, because only one track can be enabled. I would love if there's an update to give this option, to have at least two captions track enabled on screen at the same time.

  12. Subtitles / Captions create lag in Premiere 22.5.0

    I create trailers and promos for foreign series/films so subtitles are vital to my job. Also, it seems to be the trend that all social assets must include captioning, so this will become more of an issue as it becomes a requirement throughout the industry.

    I notice as I create multiple, long sequences with subtitles, Premiere starts to lag, sometimes to the point of crashing. Toggling the track helps, but only when I delete the subtitle track does Premiere perform normally again.

    This doesn't seem to be a hardware issue since I've heard/read about this being an issue for a…

  13. Quick Keys for Transcript Window

    While editing in the Transcription window and/or Caption window the critical shuttle keys "L, K, J" don't shuttle. They should shuttle.

    It is critical to be able to work at higher speeds when editing transcriptions and captions, so having to click out of the transcription or caption windows and click onto the timeline window in order to use shuttle commands is unacceptable.

  14. Text alignment and bounding box version 22.3.0

    There is not a way to keep the bounding box centered while also having the text left justified with 2 or more rows. When clicking the Left align text, the text left justifies but also moves to the left side of the bounding box. Using Center align text, moves the text to the center but also center justifies the text. There should be the ability to left justify the text, while also keeping it centered on the screen. This was possible in 14.0.3. Controls for positioning the bounding box horizontally left, center, right should be separate from text justification left,…

  15. Add subtitle automatic word level animation

    Options for colour or background to change automatically as a word is being said. Feature exists in software Descript (pic attached for reference)

    PR knows what word is being said at any point in time, but currently cannot automate formatting changes automatically.

    This would be a really great feature for social media video creation

  16. Make the captions track act like a video track

    Make the captions layer act like a videolayer. Captions now block normal editing because they are not included in trimming, are not selected when all tracks are selected, are always copied even when track is not selected. Captions are a lot improved but making them part of the editing and not just as an add to a finalized edit will improve it a lot. Let me explain a bit further; Adobe now has a great transcription build in, in lots of languages, but once you have made a transcription and start editing with it there are great limitations because of…

  17. There is a bug with captions

    In the past month, I've edited 60 videos with captioning. The captioning feature works pretty well. However, I happened to notice that the captioning was bleeding over to the next frame - only with frames for which I removed the sound.

    Just an fyi. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly? But now, I have to go back and correct the caption bleed for 60 videos... Ick...

  18. Search for Empty Captions

    It would be super handy if I could use the search function to locate empty captions in the Text tab, as opposed to only on the caption track on the timeline. Searching for <type your caption here> yields no results.
    Maybe this is already possible and I'm not aware of it?
