Make captions not be buggy to the point of uselessness.
What everyone else said 1000 times. Why put a feature in the software that just makes everyone hate you because it's useless?

I have been thrashing for the past two 12-hour days testing and testing to find a work around to PP and AME and embedding closed caption files. Last week I was able to embed CC files in MOV and MXF files. Our stations that broadcast our half hour TV show have been moving over to MP4 files only. The MOV and MXF files are just too large and are bandwidth insufficient.
The ONLY way I have found to do this was to take a CC stripped MOV file and run it and the SCC file into FCP Compressor and that would give me the working MPG files. Now, since the AME and PP updates this past weekend, NOTHING works. Embedding shows up as an option but is completely ignored in the actual output. What is going on? A major step BACKwards. And since the PP files are NOT backwards compatible, we will miss our deadline tonight. That means sponsors will miss out on what they paid for. This is a serious MISSION CRITICAL problem to discover.
With that said....I truly believe that the problem is all in the new PP Caption updates. I am getting TWO layers of captions. 608-1 and some other style that I don't use or recognize. The CC layer shows 608-1. There have been some ghosting issues as well. I have tried scores of testing over the past two wasted days. Since NOTHING works now, I target the main problem as being in the PP Captioning "tools."
This link NEEDS to be updated. The graphics do NOT show the program as it is now. and it does NOT support Broadcast 608 and 708!

Give the new re-design a whirl.
