  1. 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.

  2. Closed Captions - Lagging, Render Time

    In the latest update of Premiere Pro (2019, 13.0) the captions display 8 frames later than they should in a 59.94 fps sequence.

    In addition, the previous version of Premiere took minimal time to render the captions, both the for the initial render and after any changes were made. In 2019/13.0, the render time is just as long as rendering the whole sequence without captions. This includes renders after any changes have been made to the captions.

  3. Make Caption exporting available from more menu options

    It's very difficult to find how to export Captions. It's ONLY available if you highlight the item in the Projects display window as a right click or from File > Export.
    It is NOT available when the captions are highlighted in the Timeline.
    It's greyed out as an Export option if you don't have this project item selected.
    It is not available through the Media Export ... as you cant switch off Video and Photo.
    - Can it be available and not greyed out if you have a caption track (if you had more than one caption tracks you could…

  4. Open Caption duplicate only working after restart

    Bugreport: I duplicate an open caption, to use its style and formatting on a other timeline in the same project. When I drag it into the other timeline, I can edit the captions, but nothing happens in the programscreen. The old caption stays visible.
    I have to restart Premiere Pro to see the changes made, and only then it works fully functional.

  5. Automated subtitles

    Why doesn't PP have a solution in place or take files like .vtt, .srt or .sbv which I can extract from YouTube.

  6. The captions software adds a space at the end of most sentences. So I have to go in and manually remove it from every line. Please fix this.

  8. Tweaks to caption functionality

    The transcript and caption functionality are real time savers, but could use some improvement for a better subtitling workflow.

    1) From the Transcript window you can split speakers, but Premiere doesn't use this information when creating the captions. It will often put lines from 2 different speakers together in one caption, which isn't great for subtitle purposes. It will also leave a large time gap in order to do this. For example somewhat might say "Oh." and then several seconds later another person will say "What do you think." Premiere will create a caption that says "Oh, what", and then…

  9. Caption Track height

    It's easy for the Caption track to get buried in the interface. I seem to be able to adjust the direct height of the track with the option key but I can't adjust the space the caption area takes. I know engineering wants it to stay within a fixed space but it's too small.

  10. Create Captions dialog box "style" selection bug

    (note: I had to choose "closed captions" for this bug report even though what I'm trying to do involves open captions)

    Newest PPro version (15.4.0, build 47)

    The "style" selection box in the "Create Captions" dialog box that pops up when trying to create captions from PPro-transcribed text does not let you choose a style. See this video for evidence of the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLBoKYyfKcY

    The style selection box works as expected in Beta version 22.0.0, build 31.

  11. Need to be able to italicize just a single word instead of the entire sentence in a caption

    In PPro 2021, italicizing a caption or subtitle is an all-or-nothing thing.

    If I click the "Faux Italic" button, the entire line is italicized. I can't italicize just a single word.

  12. Short Cut Key Needed for 'add new captions segment'

    If you're manually transcribing the new update is super clunky to use.

    You have to stop typing after every segment and hit the plus button with your mouse!!! It makes the process so slow and cumbersome.

    The old version you just hit enter or return and it created a new segment.

    Also in the text window can it just be a single click to edit the text instead of a double click please?

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. Clicking into edit mode in new captions panel

    LOVING the new captions workflow (and can't wait for auto-transcription). One thing to improve: Right now clicking into the text of a caption is annoying. If I double click directly into a caption, that works OK, but if I single click first (or slower than double-click double click), then I have to double click again to open the editor. This especially happens if I'm toggling between a script and PP, so my first click just brings focus to PP, the second might select the caption (or might not...) and then I'm having to double click again...

    Can it just open…

  16. "show duplicate frame markers" in new captions doesn't make sense

    I'm working with "show duplicate frame markers" function enabled to quickly spot if i accidentally used some media twice.

    If i edit captions and insert a new caption field between two already existing fields they sometimes get randomly marked as double frames. It also happens if i extend a caption. Strange thing is that only parts of the captions get marked as double frames. There's no comprehensable consistency in the behaviour. The marked caption fields have nothing in common (apart from the same properties, but sometimes not even that).

    It would make sense if two identical caption fields (or at…

  17. Ability to customize closed caption settings

    I really like the Speech to Text transcribe feature. I have found it to work very well. The one thing that's not great is the conversion from transcript to captions. Premiere defaults to showing just one line of captions at a time. That's not standard. It would be great if there was a dialog box to allow us to set the caption settings. For example, "4-5 words per line, 2 lines per caption". Then, the transcript would be converted to captions based on those parameters.

  18. Find & replace

    A find & replace tool for the captions would be good. This way if a particular word is always incorrectly capitalised/lower case, it can easily be fixed, or if a particular word is commonly mis-transcribed, e.g. filter always comes up as Philtre.

    What everyone else said 1000 times. Why put a feature in the software that just makes everyone hate you because it's useless?

  20. Duplicating open captions - making edits on duplicate shouldn't affect original

    When you duplicate an open, burned in, caption, the edits you make on the duplicate affect the original. In my situation, I need to make captions in multiple languages. So if I were able to duplicate a caption, put the duplicate on a track above, and edit the new caption according to the pacing and text blacks of the original caption clip, that would save a ton of time. Instead I have to start from scratch in each language.
