Adding Closed Captioning to a Quicktime file?
on Mar 30, 2012 at 2:40:27 pm

I edit a weekly show that runs in about 10 markets. In the past, we have been delivering a standard definition version of the show on Betacam. I add closed captioning to the show by attaching a .scc file when I master to tape from FCP. This coming season, we'd like to transition into doing the show in HD and delivering a data file (Quicktime) to the stations for broadcast. The problem is adding CC into to the file. Does anyone know if it is possible to embed a .scc file directly into a Quicktime file?

Data files are delivered to broadcasters regularly. How is CC handled when no tapes are involved?
Thanks,

Hi

I may have found something that is useful for you. I only looked because I didn't know what closed captions were, but this article from Apple seems to show this can be done in compressor.

I fire up compressor and if you click on the clip then select "Additional Information" from the Inspector tab, there appears to be a way to add these files. As I say, I don't have any .scc files and have never heard of them before so this may or may not be helpful.
