Premiere Pro 24.5 Double Caption Editing Bug

Explorer ,
Jul 03, 2024 Jul 03, 2024

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

When attempting to edit my subtitle text, it not only makes changes to the block of text I am editing, but it also changes the block of text directly following the subtitle. These are two separate graphics clips that were created from splitting a singular graphics clip.

1. Transcribe clips in sequence

2. Create captions from transcript

3. Upgrade captions to graphics

4. Cut use the razor tool to cut a graphics clip in half

5. Editing one results in the other being changed. This also occurs on occasion when copying graphics clips and editing them. 

This is extremely unhelpful for adding subtitles throughout long videos as there are many times when Premiere Pro simply doesn't do a good job at identifying what the words are/where the best break is in the flow of the dialogue. That's why it is useful to cut and copy individual graphic caption files and to edit them as their own individual text so that the formating is preserved.

Hi @Red Rover Videography ,

Thanks for filing this bug report. I followed your steps, but I could not reproduce the error. Perhaps we don't have the same setup. See, How do I write a bug report?

 

@Stan Jones are you seeing this? I hope we can help you if the team or experts can reproduce the issue. Sorry for the problem!

 

Thanks,
Kevin

I tested in PR 24.5.0 on Win10.

 

I tested basic caption function: I did a split from the timeline and from the text panel - and edited each in the Text panel. Both splits kept the old text for the "left" captions and the new text for the "right".

 

Then I tested what  you describe, using the razor tool to split them after using Upgrade caption to graphic. I expected to get what you described, because splitting a graphics item would not create a new graphics item; and editing it would change the text in both parts. But it did not.

 

For example, consider the difference between splitting a single graphics item or chaning the duration and using Alt+drag to create a new item?

 

Still looking at this.

 

The workaround might be to make the edits in the caption track before upgrading?

Both razor and Alt+drag appear to create new items. And changing text in any one does not change text in another.

 

I can get your results if I Upgrade to source graphic before splitting.
