There is no access to captions in the current ExtendScript API; such access will need to wait until PPro implements UXP extensibility.

It is possible to insert .mogrts, and change any strings which they've exposed as 'editable'. As previously stated, there is no API around inserting or modifying actual captions.

How far off is that? Trying to decide if a panel is the way to go for XML interchange getting our captions to show up!

 

Thanks!

No dates for UXP API in PPro are available. Safe bet = "Not this calendar year".

PPro can import captions from .xml files, today...?

Not .xml captions but .xml project interchange. Apologies for being unclear. 😄
And yes, xml captions do currently work! (I might have been the captions guy at some time in the recent past.)

Can I load the caption xml file from script?

I use After Effects to create a template for captions (MoGRT file).

And I automate to insert captions, using load MoGRT file and replace the characters(text source) in the MoGRT.

To be precise, I put the caption string on the video track instead of the caption function.
