    @ Antoine - excellent work! Thank you. At least we have a workaround now.

    At this point I have no faith that the people behind Premiere understand the needs of higher end collaborative workflows. This request is so obvious that it shouldn't even need to be asked.

    As a community we need to get past the idea that the multi-cam method is anything but a really poor workaround for audio syncing. It's not what it was designed for, and if we are requesting enhancements to it we're asking the wrong questions.

    When you sync audio using multi-cam:
    - Every clip ends up with a ridiculous yellow box around it when you play it in the source monitor.
    - You can't double click to load the audio into the source monitor (it just opens the multi-cam timeline).
    - There are no options to trim the synced timelines to match the video clip length.
    - You have to manually change the multi-cam timecode if you want it to match the source clip timecode

    The list goes on quite a while longer. Basically we all just want syncing to behave the way it does in Avid or Resolve, i.e. new, synced clips that contain all of the audio metadata and with the option to rename the clips based on scene/take metadata from the audio files.

    Yes, I totally agree that adding an option to sync using sound timecode is essential, but please can everyone vote for the guy asking the right questions?

    Adobe have been passing the buck on this for years by claiming that it's the responsibility of Blackmagic to make this possible. That argument falls flat when every other piece of software I use handles it all perfectly though.

    Please address this Adobe! It's really basic stuff.

    Love this idea. I'd also love a preference for a default gap length so that, say, 5 second gaps could be added with a single shortcut without needing to set in/our points. Basically Avid's 'add filler' shortcut.

    Very well said. Agree with everything here. It feels like nobody involved in designing this workflow has ever had to actually use it.

    How are we still waiting for this feature? I requested it on the very first day that the proxy workflow was released and clearly many other people share the view.

    I would urge anyone on this page, particularly Adobe people, to check out captioning in Resolve. It works brilliantly. Please, just copy it.

    I've got to the point where I now do my final captioning in Resolve rather than Premiere and it is so much less stressful.

    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

    Just so we're all clear... Adobe is a company with a revenue of $9 billion. Premiere has had the option to create open captions since 2015. It's now almost 2020 and they still haven't managed to find the resources to actually make captioning fully functional.

    And just to re-iterate, this list isn't even a complete list of everything that is wrong with captions. There are MANY other problems in terms of stability and general functionality.

    Avid and Blackmagic are both doing this far better with far fewer resources.

    Adobe: just start again with captioning. This implementation is a complete and utter disaster.

    All of these (and plenty more) bugs aside, the fact that subtitles exist as a single piece of media rather than as clips that can be easily edited is a design flaw. Seriously, just copy what Blackmagic are doing in Resolve because it works brilliantly.

    @DavidK - over 200 people have voted to say they don't want both options. We just want the default behaviour to be that clips are pasted onto the same tracks UNLESS a new track is specifically toggled on.

    @Wes Howell - This is still marked as under review but a new version of Premiere has just been released. Does this mean the request has been rejected?

    This feature already exists (and has done for as long as I can remember). You're just doing it slightly wrong.

    When you want to deselect multiple clips, hold shift and drag across the selected clips - this is what you're already doing but there's a crucial next step. Before releasing the mouse button, drag your curser away from the currently selected clips to an empty part of your timeline. This will deselect them.
