Grzegorz Kwiatkowskiburning closed captions to video
by on Jun 4, 2015 at 12:38:29 pm

Hello,

recently in our company we started to edit tv series CC 2014. Every episode has to be reviewed by our employers who speak different language. This requires lot's of subtitles to be burned in video file. What is the best method for this except standard titles which are rather cumbersome? Can I burn in closed captions in video? In fact there is a nice plugin EZTitles but.. maybe am wrong but it's ridicously expensive (1580 EUR).

Thanks for help

A ridiculously simple technique, and free...

First install 'Subtitle Edit', easily found with a Google search. It's a free subtitle editor that has some nice features.

Then...

Create your subtitles in Subtitle Edit, or import almost any subtitle file that you have already created.

Save as 'FCP XML + images' (use PNG's for image format). Each subtitle will be created as a single PNG graphic. Save these in a folder next to your project's media.

Import the resulting XML into Premiere. After you import the XML, Premiere will try to find the PNG's refereenced in it. You may have to locate the first PNG, since they all will probably be showing as offline, but once you've shown Premiere where the first one is, it should locate the rest automatically.

It's a bit workaround but works great. Thanks Steve.

Anyway Adobe should have implemented subtitle feature long time ago.

PrPro CC next will offer you Open Captions which is what you're asking for.

"Editors who work with Closed Captions will now be able to burn them into video on export"

The official release date has not yet been announced. I can't say any more than that, but keep checking https://www.facebook.com/premierepro for latest info.
