does FCP 7 maintain closed captioning from an HD master?

this is what i need to do, capture a closed captioned master, export this out as a QT as DNX codec which can be done in QT Pro with AVID Codecs....will this maintain CC for delivery?

Hi Joe,
FCP can capture HD video with closed captions, but it will store the captions in Apple\'s QuickTime 708 track format which is not read by Avid systems. Conversely, Avid can capture captions in a DNxHD file, but those captions won\'t be read by FCP. In both cases, converting or editing the file will wipe out the captions.

To my knowledge there are no 3rd party tools yet which can manipulate the captions in a Avid DNxHD file. I hope this will change in the future.

Hope this helps,
