Problem creating Closed Captions in Chinese Mandarin on SVP 13
on Nov 20, 2015 at 7:47:33 am

Has anyone ever done closed caption in Chinese Mandarin language? Sony Vegas 13 seems not to be able to read chinese characters. I need to do captions on a 30 second commercial. I tried pasting the lines in chinese language, and on the caption edit window you can see the characters fine, but nothing shows on the screen. When trying to export the captions as a file nothing gets exported. Is there any way to make them show?

Define 'closed captions'.
Many people confuse closed captions (for broadcasting), subtitles (for DVD) and regular text captions.

The type of subtitle that does not come on the screen all the time, that you can call with your TV remote. But after calling a professional caption company they told me that Chinese characters can not be placed as that type of captions, only as subtitles, meaning, they have to be burnt on top of the video. At the end, I had to explain this to my client and ended up doing it myself as a title that appears all the time. The titler in Vegas does read and shows Chinese characters. I believe the closed caption editor of SV13 has only one font type that does not include Chinese characters.

Afaik, you can only use ANSI characters in closed captions (it's a US standard).
DVD subtitles do not have such restrictions (you can switch them on/off with DVD remote).
