Closed Captioning Not Showing in Output File
on Nov 2, 2017 at 2:33:57 pm

I have added all of my closed captions for the video I am working on, so I exported as ProRes and selected Embed in Output File in the Captions menu. However, when I open the output file, there are no embedded captions available.

Any ideas?

What are you opening the file with.
Most players will not display Embedded Ancillary Closed Caption Data.

Apple seems to think you CAN view captions in QuickTime player, if they're CEA-608 captions:

No clue about other caption formats.

Windows Media Player instructions here (it's an old post but worth a try):

I'd recommend making sure "import captions with media" is on (Premiere Pro Prefs-->Media), and import the captioned footage into Pr. That's how we check... You'll need to make sure captions are enabled and displayed in the viewer window. When they come in, it should take a minute or so to "scan closed captions". Boom!
