  2. Closed Caption issue on 708 and 608

    I use Maccaption and Caption Maker to produce Closed Caption.
    When I import the .MCC file in premiere, there are some problems. Like:

    When I select 608 CC in premiere, some accents are lost, for example: "por quê você" It appears like this in Premiere "por quê voc". When I select 708 CC it loses the positioning made in Caption Maker. Lines on bottom appear on top, lines in right appears on left. I don't know ow what to do anymore, I asked Telestream support, but they say that is a issue is Premiere Pro, Adobe doesn't give any answered.…

  3. Combine two Speakers in the speech to text transcription into one Speaker.

    The project I'm working in has two speakers, Speech to Text Transcription gave me four Speakers. I would like to combine two of the Speakers in the speech to text transcription box into a single Speaker.

  4. "Import Transcript"

    In the Transcript section under the three DOTS, there is a grayed-out option titled "Import Transcript". Will this option when available allow us to Import a text file with our own approved video scripts or will this be for uploading an SRT? I am hoping it will allow us to upload a text file to work alongside the Transcribe process. This would be similar to what YouTube allows users to do. We produce 30-60 minute videos so the ability to use an approved script would be amazing. Thank You!

  5. Large number of captions slows down the whole application (v22)

    From initial testing, this is still present in the new 2022 version (though this is testing opening up 2021 projects - it might be different starting from scratch.)

    If you have a large number of captions open in a timeline, say you might have a 1 hour interview in a foreign language with captions - it slows down the whole application, whether clicking around in the timeline or clicking on folders or clips in the Project window.

    Workarounds

    1) Hide the captions via the CC button in the timeline - this solves it & you can still edit the captions…

  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.

  7. 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…

  8. "Add new captions segment" in Text Panel 3 dots Dropdown Does Not Work

    See post in forum. Bug also filed in Beta. Tested in 15.4.1 and Beta 22 Build 63.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/no-to-add-captions-in-premiere-pro/m-p/12349974#M365071

    Narrow the Text Panel so the Plus symbol (ato add a new caption segment) does not show. The "Add new captions segment" is available in the 3 dots dropdown. But when you click on that option, nothing happens.

    Workarounds include expanding the Text Panel to use the plus symbol and using the shortcut Ctrl-Alt-C.

  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.

  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. Two caption tracks for multiple speakers

    Fo the new "text" panel, I would love to see a feature where if you have multiple speakers who are speaking at the same time, to give it the ability to give them their own caption track and style so that you can separate it out better

  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. exporting track style

    We work with many production houses globally and it would be very handy to be able to export the track style to send to the editors so they can match the in house look of the programmes produced.

    Or to be able to link the look with an essential graphic template that the creative department has made.

  16. Allow for more customization in the new Captioning tool

    The new captioning system is overly-restrictive in terms of dimensions/positioning.

    While there should be an option to adhere to standards, there should an option to disable standards and allow for positioning/customization anywhere inside the video frame.

  17. Exporting .mcc, .xml and .stl files from Text window

    In the current Premiere Pro release (15.0), it is only possible to export MCC, XML and STL files using the Export Media option. This means, for each of these formats, the video (or at least the audio) need to also be exported each time one of these subtitle file formats needs to be exported. This takes much longer than would be the case if only the sidecar file were to be exported.
    It would be ideal if the MCC, XML and STL sidecar files could be exported separately, the same way SRT files can be exported from the new Text…

  18. Restore Standalone .scc file export

    In PP 2020, you could export a standalone .scc file by selecting the set (timeline, clip or anything that contained Captions) and selecting File>Export>Captions... Now in 2021, the only way to export a .scc file is using the media export panel as a sidecar, an which case you must also export media. This takes what could be a 3-5 second process and turns it into a long process which includes a render.

    There are countless reasons why one may want to export just the .scc file, but I'll give you my top three.

    1. You want to use it for some…

  19. 2021 New Premiere Captions needs to bring back "adaptive" background on two line captions

    Off the bat I personally wanted to say THANK YOU so much to all the hard work at Adobe for updating this finally. Its AWESOME now!!!!

    Only question/concern my fellow colleagues and I have is will / can there be a way for two line subs like this one to have the background land exactly on the size of each line like the previous subs title system did? I think this is the standard way (adaptive, not static) way to display them on broadcast with two line subs.

    So for example the background would be EXACTLY behind "NARRATOR" and "with"…

  20. Editing captions: DEL key behaves like BACKSPACE key in program window

    If i edit captions (PPro 15.0) in the program window, pressing DEL does the same as pressing BACKSPACE: it deletes the letter before the marker, not after it.

    In the text window DEL works as it should. It also works flawlessly when editing essential graphics text in the program window.

    The problem only occurs when editing captions in the program window.
