  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!

  2. 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。

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. [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.

  7. 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 😬

  8. 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.

  10. Captions need some more work.

    At the moment when I select the top alignment (one line subtitle aligns at the top of the caption) and the bottom center zone the subtitle jumps to the center of the screen. When trying to move it it locks at 0 and doesn't allow me to go into the minus values.
    Only way around that is to align at the bottom and hit enter at the end of every single line sub. However this practice is going to cause a problem for sure sooner or later.

    The background should be able to be adjusted by length and hight individually.

  11. BUG REPORT: Premiere Pro 14.7.0

    I have made a Japanese caption layer and some of the subtitles are italics. I see the result in the program monitor and everything is ok.
    Here comes the bug...

    The exported H264 video has been tagged with <i>...</i> instead of italics subtitles.
    The weird thing is that this happens ONLY in the h264 mp4 because the mov PRORES 422HQ is ok!

    (Both versions have burn captions to video option selected on export -exported via media encoder)

  12. Choice between American English and the rest of the world for captions

    For captions, before transcribing, there should be an option of what version of English is required. Currently, I have to go through all the subtitles and change from "American" to "Australian" English.

  13. subtitles

    Premiere 15 new subtitles: Whenever I add a new subtitle to a long list of subtitles, it always jumps to the beginning of the list and I have to scroll to the end of the list to see and edit the new subtitle. I wish it would always automatically scroll to the newly added subtitle so that it is not only activated but also visible.

  14. New captions issues

    Been using this for like 10 minutes and already frustrated by a few things.
    - My forward and back edit hotkeys are W and S, and my left and right by one frame hotkeys are A and D. Whenever I edit a caption's words using these letters, it just switches back to the timeline and performs whatever action I pressed (ie if I type "s" to fix a word, it'll just go to the next edit point and I'll be moved out of the Text window. I literally can't type that letter into the captions).
    - Track style is not…

  15. Separate X & Y size for subtitle background

    With the new captions workflow, where you can treat the style/look of your subtitles with the Essential Graphics interface, it would be helpful if the background size could be adjusted on X and Y separately. Often, not the same space is needed for both. Sometimes, more space is needed on the sides, than top and bottom.

  16. Adjustable Subtitle Lengths

    After I finish editing the transcript and push the button to create captions, it would be helpful to have one or two options about where to divide the captions. Here's why.
    When I'm creating captions for Youtube, I want the auto translator to have the best chance of working correctly by dividing the captions by sentences or phrases. A complete phrase with at least a noun and a verb will most likely be translated correctly.

    So if I can specify a preference for complete phrases or sentences that would be awesome.
    The captions will be longer than the auto-captioning algorithm…

  17. Allow caption import with "empty" lines

    Captions are frequently generated by third party captioners with "blank" lines indicating a duration of silence. For example:

    1
    00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:08,080

    2
    00:00:08,080 --> 00:00:09,230
    Welcome, everyone.

    This indicates that the first ~8 seconds of the video are silent. However, when importing that caption into Premiere, it ignores the blank line, treating "2 00:00:08,080 --> 00:00:09,230 Welcome, everyone." as the text for the first caption.

    It would be helpful if Premiere could parse the blank line as {empty text} so that the correct ordering and timing of the captions is maintained.

  18. Fades for "burnt-in subtitles"

    Hi, sometimes it would really be very cool to add a fade-in/fade-out to captions that are only in Overlay mode and will be burnt-into video files during export.

    (eg: Opera: singer sings very slowly and a faded caption would dramatically improve the artistic effect of the subtitle).

    It is possible to do that in the AVID Mediacomposer.
