  1. Everything wrong with Captions in Premiere Pro 13.1.2. Let get captioning fixed asap!

    Captions in Premiere Pro 13.1.2 have several problems.

    (
    Windows10. May be different on Mac.). Here is a thread of all of the problems I've found in captions so far. While there are several threads already that point out individual issues, I'm hoping that bringing all of the issues together in a single mega thread will help get captions Adobe's prompt attention. Here we go!


    1. NO BURN IN: Exporting a video through Media Encoder doesn't burn in captions even if the "Burn Captions Into Video" option is selected in Premiere Pro's Export Settings. The captions only get burned in if…

    Thanks again for the feedback. We have made sure to have created items in our database for all actionable items. We are hoping you will be pleased by some of the changes we have made in future releases. Please continue to engage with us.

    Note that in the future, while this list is awesome, it is much easier for us to change status on completed items if they are single entry.

    We may close this one eventually but will keep the other individually tracked items open with status

  2. fix closed captions

    It's 12:01AM and I would have been finished with my edit hours ago if it were not for the numerous bugs related to closed captions. I'll just list one here: edits in the captions are not reflected in the program monitor. I can create a new caption or change the timing of a caption, and it will not be shown when I play the video. I can delete words and the captions will not re-center themselves (okay, that's a separate bug, but worth mentioning here too). And sometimes the formatting is just completely wrong. The spacing will be too tight…

  3. Make the Captions checkbox on export automatically turned on if there are Captions in the video

    Okay, so your like me and you just finished a long days edit with captions and you're about to export a large file, you know it's going to take hours to export. After all that time, you review the export and low-and-behold, no captions. YOU FORGOT TO PRESS THE TURN ON CAPTIONS BUTTON EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE CAPTIONS IN THE VIDEO! Adobe, if there are captions in the timeline being exported, the captions option in the export settings should be automatically checked. I can see why it is uncheck by default as to help the editor decide what kind of…

  5. Improved Captions Editing

    Please improve captions editing by allowing us to copy/paste, selecting and moving multiple captions at once, easily create caption clips that can be inserted in the middle of a scene, etc. The caption features in Premiere are extremely limited and it's very time consuming to get captions the way I want them, especially if I need to make an edit in the middle of my timeline and now have to move potentially move hundreds of captions one-by-one.

  6. improve open captions (visually better for online social videos)

    The captions features seems very outdated for todays online video market. Why can't Adobe make them visually nicer? For example options to round the boxes, have text centres to a position so if you are going from one or two lines of text the single line is centre to the 2 lines rather than at the bottom.

    Options to have the text go as far out to the side of the video. If you are making a video for online you don't need safe areas, give us the option to how far the text goes out left and right. Also…

  9. Always keep captions visible in the Captions window

    When working on captions, deselecting the captions clip in the Timeline (or selecting any other clip) makes all of the captions disappear from the Captions window. An empty Captions window is of zero benefit to editors and is an annoyance since it gives editors the added step of having to re-select the captions clip in the Timeline before they can continue to work on captioning.

    My suggested solution is simple. Please always keep captions visible in the Captions window, whether the captions clip is currently selected in the Timeline or not. If the Timeline has 2 or more captions clips,…

  10. Mouse disappears

  11. Bug : Subtitles are shifted down when italic

    Hello,

    When using the Closed Captions feature, the font shifts down when using italic on a part of the sentence. This is more and less visible depending of the fonts. Here's an image with the same sentence done with the Type Tool (top) and the Closed Captions (down).

    The font used is Manrope (downloaded from Google Fonts), but I've seen similar issues with other typos (Futura, Inter, Helvetica...).

    Issues like this must be a priority to make Closed Captions usable on Premiere.

    Thanks.

  12. Open Captions Display Bug

    Randomly an import SRT, when being edited for style changes, will not display those changes. Saving, closing the project, and re-opening it immediately reflects those visual changes with the Open Captions. This is on a 2017 iMac (max specs), macOS 10.14.6 with Premiere 14.3.

  13. Captions display and output doesn't respect the timecode (Premiere Pro 2020)

    Since Premiere Pro 2020, the display and output of closed captions doesn't respect the source timecode (captions imported from MacCaption as an MCC file with 608/708 captions). For example, if a caption is set to appear on a certain timecode, it's always off by 4 or 5 frames in Premiere 2020. It's annoying when all the captions changes need to be in sync with video cuts. This bug wasn't present in Premiere Pro 2018.

  14. Captions

    I believe that captions should not be nested inside an adjustment layer.
    They should either have a dedicated track like Resolve has or simply be considered as a video track like in Avid MC.
    I also think that there should be a global setting (Font, size, positioning) that you can export and share if you have to with other editors. Unfortunately at the moment Premier has the worst captioning than all the other NLEs

  15. Spanish Close Caption for Latino high school English Language Learners.

    My school district has a license for the Cloud. Great tool. We have a significant Spanish speaking population. Your close caption feature is amazing but I find it puzzling it lacks Spanish. Please consider adding the feature. The impact on student learning will be incredible. Thank you for considering my suggestion.

  16. AI Detection of Graphics/Faces for Captioning

    It would be useful to have an AI feature that would auto-detect graphics and faces in a video to place captions in locations that do not cover graphics and faces in the video. This would speed up the captioning process significantly.

  17. Caption exports do not retain style and size changes

    Tested an .srt subtitle language file from REV, imported into an HD timeline. Made size and style changes and exported two different ways-

    1) Using Export Media dialog>Captions pane, which includes a "Include Style settings" checkbox, which I checked. Selected sidecar file.

    Round-tripped it back into the same HD timeline-- no size style changes retained.

    2) Used File>Export>Captions, which allows you to export just the sidecar, no movie, and also includes the Styles checkbox.

    Round-tripped the export back into Premiere to see that, once again, absolutely no style changes have been retained.

    How can I deliver this to the client…

  18. Prevent Media Encoder from rendering Closed Caption import files

    Oh, boy I've been reading the threads asking for AME to render imported CC and .srt language subtitle files-- I don't want it!

    I am not yet a veteran CC producer. Like many, I've been drawn into the requirement as editor.

    I have fresh downloads from REV in three popular timecoded formats. The minute they land, AME pounces on them. So I figured, OK, let it work.

    Three hours later (these are all feature length files), I tried laying what was a .scc file, now a rendered .mov file, into my testbed HD timeline.

    I gave it a chance. No…

  19. When importing and exporting an .srt allow position of the captions to be carried through.

    I need to import .srts sometimes the postioning has already been adjusted but it is lost when imported. After creating a new version and exporting the .srt any postioning is lost.

  20. SCC import result in fixed timebase 29.97

    When importing a scc file on a video we see that at the end of the video the key's don't match. Changing the source settings of the scc file to 25 fps doesn't change this while we would expect that this should solve the problem.
