PAL Captioning
on Jun 24, 2010 at 10:50:24 pm

I'm curious if Final Cut (or I guess Quicktime in general to be more specific) can support Closed Captioning information in the PAL standard. I'm all but certain it can do so in NTSC, but I've only tried it once in PAL briefly without much success or any time to troubleshoot or experiment.

Thanks.

It highly depends on your definition of CC.
Closed Captioning is a broad term, and is not limited to any colorsystem nor carrier/container.

IOW, yes. it can be done.

Will your viewers be able to see it?
Probably not. But that goes for NTSC as well as other systems.

What are you after? There are a zillion proven workflows to deliver CC on final output.

Well I suppose specifically I'm asking that, say, if a Quicktime file that was created at 25 frames per second at a standard definition resolution with captioning information included in the video on line 22 (I believe that's the standard for PAL captioning. I could be wrong) was provided, would FCP be able to output that file through an AJA Kona card into a PAL digital betacam machine and maintain the captioning.

Conversely would it be possible to digitize a PAL video signal that had captioning into Final Cut Pro and maintain the captioning information.

Why would you want this?
In PAL, CC does not exist. We use TeleText (also in the VBI) but that is inserted by the broadcaster (Teletext carries a couple of hundred different pages with modest refreshment. There is a page that has CC for the deaf, but again, the broadcaster inserts it.) No-one uses Teletext outside television.

IOW, it will probably stick, but no-one will ever decode the info.
