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.
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?
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 :)

I am currently having the same problem. I'm working on a project that has captions in both English and Te Reo Māori burned on the video, so I had to go back to Premiere 2020 to work on it.
I understand this is not usual practice for TV and Film, but it does happen with web videos. This project for example is focused on accessibility, so it has 2 languages with captions and NZ Sign Language.
I usually just use essential graphics with burned subtitles videos anyway, because captions in Premiere is just a nightmare to work with. But for this project in particular I was supplied with .srt files and it was just easier to deal with captions, till Premiere updated.
Thanks for all the feedback. It’s pretty clear that we’ve got to look into the workflow using this format more closely, there are enough reports about gaps at this point to reopen this item. I’ll post more info about next steps shortly. In the meantime, a couple of questions are easy to answer:
- The plugin is designed for Premiere Pro. It currently doesn’t provide support for After Effects.
- It does work with AME, so if you want to use it for batch processing, that’s very doable
- If you’ve started a project with Autokroma, there’s no easy way to transfer it to be running with the new plugin.
