  1. Captions 708 output doesn't respect the timeline timecode (Premiere Pro 2021 v15.1 and v15.2)

    Hi,

    When outputting both 608 and 708 captions in a XDCAM-60i MXF OP1a with embedded closed captions, the 608 captions output is fine, but the 708 are offset by 6 frames when compared to the timecode in the Premiere Pro timeline.

    This is the same problem since Premiere Pro 2019, still have to use 2018 to export MXF with 708 in the right place.

    Workflow is an imported MCC file from MacCaption (29.97 drop frame) output to XDCAMHD 4:2:2 50Mbps NTSC MXF OP1a.

    Output file is tested both with Telestream Switch and Premiere Pro (output file imported back in a…

  4. Premiere is messing up 608 caption formatting on export

    When I export MXF OP1 files with embedded 608 captions, Premiere seems to randomly move some titles to the left or right side of the screen in the exported file. Upon closer inspection, Premiere seems to be breaking up multi-line captions into separate elements per line, and then plugging in bizarre align and transform values for them. There seems to be no way to format 608 captions for MXF OP1 export that results in a predictable output. Any help or advice on this would be appreciated. I'm on Premiere 2021 with Mac 10.14.6.

  5. Subtitles accompany Rolling Edit tool

    Congratulations on the new captions workflow.
    The Transcribe tool is very competitive compared to many of the alternatives on the market.
    I tested it in PT and ENG and it works great.

    In previous versions of Premiere captions were treated as video.
    In Premiere 2021 15.0, they appear as Essential Graphics.
    I'm editing a documentary in which the characters speak several languages I don't understand (Russian, Danish, etc.)
    1) How can I, in this new version, get the subtitles to accompany (e.g.) the use of the Rolling Edit tool ?
    2) When I'm reviewing the subtitles, it would be useful…

    It would be nice if the duration of captions could be changed via the shortcut menu > Duration, just like with other types of items.

  10. Closed captioning encoding options

    The improvements to the captioning system and the transcribe feature are great, but for broadcasters (this one, anyways) exporting an MXF file with closed captioning encoded doesn't seem to produce the desired effect on air.

    For instance, a file we get from another source says the text stream is encoded as "A/53 DTVCC Transport", whereas anything I export out of Premiere says "Ancillary data/CDP" and doesn't seem to translate to closed captioning in our broadcast. The option to select DTV captioning and ensure that a file is broadcast ready would be amazing.

  11. Restore abillity to define default caption import settings

    In previous versions, you could define the import settings for captions. If you did that, and then updated to 15.1, you now have no ability to change it. So for the rest of time every time I open captions they will first import as "century gothic size 40 open captions" unless I go back to an earlier version and change that.

    It's fairly easily deal with the "style" and change that after import. But there were many other elements to the previous import settings dialogue. In any event, getting a) import settings and/or b) controlling the default import style would…

  13. View more than one caption track at once.

    I'd like to be able to view more than one caption track at once in the new Captions workflow (Premiere Pro 2021 v15 and on).

    In my case, I'm creating both English and Spanish subtitles as separate SRT files, and it would be helpful to be able to have both visible at once, on different parts of the screen, so that I can match the timing of each track.

  15. Arabic subtitles

    Typing or changing subtitles in arabic in the text window doesn't recognize the first letter of the sentence and places a rectangle instead. But moving to the window Essential graphics, in the sub tab "Edit" selecting that particular caption on the timeline then switching the mode from "Right to Left typing" to "Left to Right typing" then back to "Right to Left typing" solves the problem. I hope a solution can be brought to this matter. Thanking you.

  16. Hard to edit captions at the end of the sequence

    I can easily double-click caption entries in a a sequence except when I get to the last remaining captions at the end. It's nearly impossible to trigger the edit box in the Captions window for captions at the end of a sequence. This seems like a bug.

  18. v15.0 MXF OP1a embedded closed caption missing on export.

    From another post I can confirm that with Loudness effect selected, no embedded captions are included in the export file. Unselect Loudness and embedded captions are present in the export file. This is not an acceptable workaround, please repair this asap.

  19. More words on screen in captions created from transcription

    In Premiere Pro Beta, when creating captions from an automatic transcription, the resulting captions sit on only one line, with only 6 or 7 words on screen at a time. I would like the option to make the automatically generated captions sit on two lines, to show more words on the screen at a time. Presently, choosing different styles when the captions are generated from the transcript does not change the number of words on screen at a time.

  20. 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!
