Hi,

I want to put captions on the right hand side of my video - I have a portrait clip that I will put on a landscape sequence and I want the captions to fill the right hand side (see picture). 

 

My issue is that I can't seem to make the captions start at the top and use all the space to the bottom. Am I missing something here?! Thanks in advance...Screenshot 2022-06-21 at 15.07.49.png

Try the parameters next to the Zone.

 

Or use plain text instead of captions.

More info re Ann's suggestion; see the screen shot.

In my example, I set the "Zone" to upper right, Right aligned, and top aligned. And I have made the box an exact left to right size, and large from top to bottom. As you add lines, they will stay at the top and move down. Or if you set Center Text Vertically, a one line caption will be in the middle, and as lines are added, they will move to stay centered.

 

I assume you are burning in. A sidecar file is unlikely to work.
