  2. Captions crashes often. Multiple bugs in captions.

    The captions system is VERY buggy:
    1. It's crashed Premieremultiple times.
    2.It has frozen the movement ( but not buttons) on my mouse.
    3. It can only display frames not time code.
    4 Pasting into the IN and Out boxes doesn't always work.

  3. Open Captions batch shift and line spacing

    I NEED to be able to batch shift/move captions across the timeline. right now you can only move around one at a time. I can't believe this isn't an available feature. Please update.

    Second is open caption line spacing. I can import an SRT as an Open Caption with special line spacing. But I can't adjust line spacing when creating new captions in the caption settings. This needs to be updated fast.

  4. captions bug with styles while adding multiple captions

    Hello. I think it's a bug in premiere, can't explain it otherwise.
    The problem is in captions window. I use File-New-Captions-Open Captions-Square Pixels. Then I start adding captins using Captions window and "+" Button. For the firt 3-4 pieces styling works fine, style of captions looks mire oe less the same (black bacground, positioning), I just need to adjust size. But when I push + Button for the 3-4 time suddenly black backgrpund is not there anymore and I can not turn it on. "Backgound color" button does not show anything.

  5. Captions bug when adjusting duration.

    Using Open captions.
    I'm experiencing a bug when I go back to adjust the length of captions.
    I need to make several long captions shorter. When I go to drag the ends of the caption to shorten or lengthen it, it disappears, setting its duration to 0, the only way I can adjust them is by dragging the time code in the Captions window. Which is slow and tedious.

    I think one of the best caption tools I have seen is Youtube's captioning tools. Which highlight the captions as you scrub through, and allow you to use the space bar…

  7. Caption

    Can you add in the caption editor a letter-spacing, also referred to as tracking.
    Is it difficult?

  8. Caption Settings do not take unless you quit and restart.

    Caption settings have been buggy for a while, but in Premiere Pro 2018 (v13.x) they don't even take unless you save your project, quit Premiere, and then start it again.

    Setup:
    - macOS 10.14.1
    - Open Premiere Pro CC
    - Import a video (I'm working with MP4's)
    - Import a caption file (I'm working with DFXP)
    - Move both to the Timeline and match them up (audio to captions) as needed.
    - In the Timeline, click on the captions
    - Open the Captions panel
    - Right click on the first caption and then Select All
    - Enter your settings... my…

  9. Improve Closed Captions Functionality.

    Below are some featues/ bugs and suggested improvements I've come up with.

    • If you add a new caption, you shouldn't have to go into the closed captions display settings and enable them just to see them. It should automatically show them when they are created and a pop up should appear when a conflicting caption is made.

    • There should be a warning pop up when a frame rate requirement of the caption format doesn't match the sequence settings.

    • Would be great if there were an auto caption feature.

    • Default captions should be set as "open captions"…

  10. We need a way to mass edit captions/subtitles!

    We need a way to be able to edit ALL lines from an imported .srt file at the same time...

    like formatting the background, font, size, placement... all at the same time.
    (As opposed to currently where we need to do one line at a time)

    Depending on the change needed and the talking speed of the speaker... It takes at least 30s-90s per minute of video to edit them one line at time...

    which is a huge waste of time!

    Please implement this functionality... it's should be too hard to fix from a software engineering point of view.

    and…

    Resolved  ·  Reg Santo Tomas responded

    Please see Nate’s comments. As he says, if this isn’t working as intended, please submit either a specific enhancement request or separate bug.

  11. Update Captions

    The captions has been quite buggy for some time, trying to export it as a SRT is a real pain. The edge also isn't correct with some letters as shown in picture below. Where it almost becomes unusable...

    Please remove the spikes from letters like capital M and A when we create captions with an edge for better readability.

  13. Make Captions snap to frames, ASAP.

    Please make captions snap to frames and other layer's in & out points in a release as soon as possible. It's crazy that everything snaps to frames in Premiere apart from the captions. We're having tons of trouble due to the fact that they don't; captions overwrite each other, don't change from one to the next when they should, and when creating subtitles for a dual language film it's a real pain to make quickly make them change subs at the same point.

    You could really do with making them easier to select too, its a bit fiddly.

  17. Unable to edit/adjust .SRT captions in premiere

    I've imported a standard .srt caption into Premiere 2018 and I am unable to move text, change the font, font size, etc. no matter what I changes I make to the caption settings. The caption is even off from what the caption settings are saying it should be.

  19. Better caption workflow using .srt Files

    Create a workflow in which importing .srt Files created with a 3rd party program will work without glitches or import errors

    For example:

    When I import .srt files made with YouTube and downloaded, often most of the file does not import. I imported a 5 minute srt file and only the first 2 minutes showed up.

    There is an entire industry built around translators and transcribers using .srt files to give to their clients, so this is an important and much needed workflow.

  20. Exporting Captions

    I am exporting a video in 3 different sizes with burnt in captions. When I export the 1080p version, the captions export fine to the final output. When I export the 1080 x 1920 version and the 1080 x 1350 version, the closed captions do not export with the video. I can see them in the export menu and have tried in both Media Encoder Queue and directly from Premiere. Baffling!
