    This is not a bug, it’s as designed. We specifically limit the visibility to one track at a time to avoid accidentally burning in multiple tracks. Also, when exporting to a format that only supports one captions stream like SRT or STL, we need to know which is the active track in order to export the correct track.

    But I understand why you might need two tracks visible at the same time.

    Multiple speakers:
    If we could automatically identify speakers and designate a style associated with them, would that help? For example speaker 1 is blue and on the left, speaker 2 is yellow and on the right?

    Multiple languages:
    Do you ever need to burn in both at the same time or is it just a matter of being able to see both to aid in translation and alignment?

    Thanks for the feedback, we really are listening :)

    As everybody has explained, there are a million of situations where you need multiple languages rendered at the same time. Premiere is a creative tool, and users can go beyond the standards.

    In those cases where multiple languages are needed to be rendered at the same time, it is understood that those subtitles will be burned into the video and not used as SRT.

    So, coming into solutions more than into complains, and talking as the software developer that I am, I suggest that -at least for now- you gave the user the chance to render the captions into an alpha video layer that can be easily adjusted on top of the other captions. Of course this still will means that for each change you make in the caption you will need to re-render the captions, but at least you would not need to re-render the whole video, loosing quality, and you would be able to even apply effects and transforms to the rendered captions, which can help in the creative process.

    Looking forward to downloading that update.

    You are welcome.
