I have to basically subtitle a bunch of text so I've got quite a few titles. It worked fine for the first 20 or so, but now sometimes they aren't updating.
Here's my workflow:
create a title and get everything where I want it.
right click on title in project and choose duplicate
rename copied title
place new title on timeline
change text of copied and renamed title
think I'm done and ready to move on to the next thing until....
Now I go back a couple titles to listen for where the changes are. What!?! The text for the title I just changed is showing up in the playback window. I think, "shoot, did I edit the wrong title?," so double click that title in the timeline to change it. No, it's still the original text, but is showing up with the new text.
The first time this happened I scratched my head, saved, closed, opened it again and it was now corrected. Then I copied another title to move on and repeated that process....same thing.
Has anyone ever gotten this bug? Is there a 30 title limit without there being issues? lol
Hoping this is already solved, does anyone have a solution or reasonable workaround?
Confirmed, it's a bug of some sort. It doesn't always happen, but turning the layer's visibility off/on causes it to refresh. So that's a workaround at least.
I logged it with Adobe. I can't pinpoint when it happens, so it may never get fixed. I assume it doesn't happen on all systems either. At least I know a fix.
I had it happen once after using the technique you suggested by creating a copy using the button at the top left in the titler, so that didn't solve it either. It just sometimes happens. Meh, I'll just have to keep a close eye on things.
make sure you are editing the duplicates in the project panel and NOT copy/pasting titles and launching to edit from the sequence.
When you copy and paste on the timeline these copies all refer to the same master in the project panel. so if you change one... it will change all copies on the timeline. If you are coming from FCP....this behavior is distinctly different from FCP...
where every duplicate made on the timeline is independent.
I always do that as Jeff says, open an existing title in the titler and choose new title based in the actual one, so text position, character size and family are the same, just write another text and that´s all.
I'm using CC 2017 and encounter the similar problem.
I'm not sure that the duplication and copying&pasting are same functions,
but I copied the 'title01' and renamed it 'title02'.
I clicked the spuit tool (not good at English, so I mean the tool for extracting the specific color) in the title tool menu,
and didn't choose any color, just push ESC.
The problem came up that time.
Kept trying to change the color or the texts, but no change at all.
Suddenly I clicked the spuit tool again and just pushed ESC,
then I could change the title finally.
As people mentioned above, don't copy and paste, or duplicate the title as you might with any other object in Premiere. Instead, duplicate/copy the title using the top left button from within the titler. That creates a New copy of the title.
I really think this is a huge oversight on Adobe's part. Especially since it's not a true instance, and only seems to mess up Some of the time.
But anyway, it's just something to learn. Never duplicate a title from anywhere other than the titler.
