Import FCP7 project subtitles
on Sep 3, 2015 at 6:30:18 pm

Imported an old FCP 7 project into Premiere Pro CC 2015 and most of this went surprisingly smoothly... except none of the subtitles appeared. Not at all - not even a hint that they ever existed. I'd created these subtitles in Digital Heaven DH_Subtitle 2.0. in FCP 7, so perhaps this is part of the issue here?

There are many, many subtitles as its a foreign language show - any workarounds, 3rd party tool recommendations?

Confirmed by Martin @ DH, no way as Premiere does not read them as titles, sees them as custom plug-in data. So trying to make sense of Spherico TitleExchange - which does read DH Subtitles & supposedly can convert them to any number of formats. Trying to determine best workflow now but a tad complex at first glance...

Clues always appreciated, thx

Batching the images out may not be too bad...

the labor will be in the timing...

if you can export the images in something that can be sorted sequentially

0001, 0002, 0003 etc...

the following is a GUESS....

you may have to go back to fcp 7

dupe the seq...

and where the subtitle track was... replace those edits with a clip...really any clip...

where that would get referenced in the XML...

that way in'd at least know where the edits fall...

and replacing them with the sequential exported subtitles will be a a little tedious...but you won't have to deal with the timing...which in a foreign language situation is near impossible.

Thanks Alex -

I've been out of the loop for awhile and from your reply, its clear that my problem is indeed a problem with no easy solution. I'll be messing about with things next week & see what I can do-

best for the holiday weekend-
