  1. Fix the caption editor.

    I started using the caption editor when I was approved for early access to the automatic transcription feature.
    This feature is great, and I only need to make the occasional minor correction (usually proper nouns and punctuation), but the problem is that the text editor for the captions is...well, for lack of a better word, complete garbage.

    It has a ridiculous amount of lag between a click and the action that click was supposed to perform actually taking place, and often it will seemingly randomly highlight sections of the text as I am typing, so an action as simple as…

  2. Transcription feature request - align current text

    I currently use Transcriptive by Digital Anarchy to transcribe and then caption in PP.
    A very useful feature of Transcriptive is the "align current text" where by you can import a text file containing your script and then use the transcription service to align this content to the voice.
    This would be a great addition to the native transcription service in PP.

  3. Stop text movement in the Text panels

    Editing transcript and Caption text in the Text panel is very frustrating! When you double click on a word to edit it, the text in the field changes size and gets bolder, thus moving all the text around. Now you have to find the word you were going to edit all over again. Please just enter a text edit mode without moving the text!

  5. First character dropped when pasting.

    When cutting and pasting text between caption fields drops the first character of the cut text when pasting it.

  6. PLS, PLS, PLS bring back the ability to batch export captions directly from the Bin.

    This used to be easy. When working with hundreds of sequences, it's not feasible to individually export SRTs from the Text Panel. And when doing it from the Export Media dialog, you HAVE to do it alongside another video or audio file. Sometimes our caption sidecars are exported months after the videos, and I would currently have to create hundreds of new videos just to export a sidecar. Before the redesign, I could simply select all my caption files in the bin, and then choose "Export > Captions." I'm BEGGING you to reinstate this function

  7. Closed Captions with speaker names

    When exporting a transcription it would be awesome if the "speaker" names would export as well and not just the spoken text.

  8. Make a BURN-IN caption window and a CLOSED CAPTION window.

    I don't burn in captions but i do make closed captions that a tv viewer can turn on or off. The Premiere 2021 captions is not useable.

  9. Bug: Importing Captions at v15.1+

    When I select “Import captions from file” at version 15.1 and 15.2, the captions are “broken”, as seen on the prints.

    The number of captions gets reduced from a total of 231 (15.0) to only 96 (15.2), where they are combined somehow in a strange order.

    I had to rollback to 15.0 to be able to work properly with captions.

    Thought it would be fixed by 15.2, but apparently it wasn't.

  10. Adding Motion to Subtitle Tracks.

    With Adobe's automatically generated subtitles on the rise, we should have more control over how our subtitles' look.

    Adobe should let us put effects on subtitles in the subtitle track so that we can manipulate them however we want OR let us convert the subtitles into text layers for us to be able to play around with.

  11. 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

  12. New Text/Captions workflow : UX Improvements - it's kinda great, but kinda horrible.

    The new Captions/Text tool on Premiere 15.0 is a huge improvement to the old workflow which was very buggy. I'm impressed with the quality of the Transcript in French, which recognizes 95% of the words correctly (even names). A big thanks to the team who developed it !

    But working with subtitles every day, we saw that it also slowed us down on certain aspects which are very frustrating.
    Here is some suggested UX improvements by priority :

    1 - Make the formatting of the text the same between "edit mode" and "view mode".

    In the current tool, you have…

  13. Please allow the caption background to have the same size. The size of the background changes based on the letter in the sentence.

    caption background should have its own width scaling option. Currently the caption background is based on the sentence, and this causes the background to have inconsistent width. Sentence with Q, P, G will have a wider background compared to those without.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Apostrophes don't display correctly in 608 Closed Captions

    This is either a bug or a not-fully-baked feature: If you add an apostrophe to a 608 caption using the title tool in the canvas, it places a curly apostrophe and then renders incorrectly in the caption stream (as a box character). You have to instead type the apostrophe in the Text panel, where it will insert a straight apostrophe that renders correctly in the caption stream. Apparently curly apostrophes are unsupported in 608 CCs, and the Text panel knows this but the Text Tool doesn't.

    Perhaps this is intentional and the goal is to allow curly apostrophes in open…

  17. Embedded Captions don't work on MAC v15

    Hello, I'm using the new ver15 and I'm wondering how to export closed captions. I have applied my captions, one is CEA-608 and the other 708, they are on caption track 1 and 2. If the eyeball is enabled on their track I see them as open captions in my pgm monitor, I also see them as normal captions on my pgm monitor (not sure how to disable/enable cc on my pgm monitor yet, but that's a separate issue).

    My problem is when I export and I choose 'embed captions' in my MXF file, no captions are exported. This worked…

  19. Make captions track editable / layer moveable

    Captions should be a moveable track so that it can be placed under other video layers e.g. to achieve a fade to black rather than a hard out.

  20. speech to text translation

    Would it be possible that after the editor has corrected the speech to text transcript it could be re-uploaded to be translated into another language and create another speech to text transcript. So we end up with multiple captions in different languages which the editor can export out as multiple SRT files for uploading to what ever platform they are using all from within Premier Pro.
