  1. Control leading in Open Captions

    It would be super if i could control the Leading (vertical distance) between two sentances in Open Captions.
    At this time if i break an Open Captions sentance in two there is no way of controlling the vertical distance between the two parts.
    The default leading is too big in most cases depending on the font which is used.

    Thank you.

  4. Allowing full text adjustments to be made to captions.

    Currently premiere automatically puts giant kerning in captions ... why? why would this ever be prefereable especially in a feature that allows very limited text controls. Costing me money.

  5. open captions padding

    The padding around text on open captions is not uniform. The spacing above the text is far greater than below the text causing significant problems. See attached png..

  6. Make Subtitling Easier

    What about having a tool that makes subtitling easier. If you could import a textfile with gaps between the text that belongs together and having a shortcut that hits a new subtitle in whenever you hit it. You could easily read your translated text, see when the speaker starts speaking (on the audio track) and after watching the whole video for once, just hit enter and everything will fall in place. That would be amazing!!!

  8. 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.…

  9. Speech to text - Scandinavian languages

    Do you have plans to include Norwegian and Swedish in the Transcribe sequence function? Would save me lots of time. If so, when?

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. "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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Implement smart quotes for captions

    It would be helpful to have the option of automatically setting proper "curly" quotes and apostrophes for burned in captions.

    Really, I think this should be the default.

  17. 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?

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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"…
