Hi

I just received a scc file and I'd like to change the font and position for all subtitles at once. Is there a solution or do I have to change them one by one?

Thanks

Maybe this was a recent fix but you CAN change the attributes of the entire caption by selecting multiple windows. Just make sure you are clicking the right spot on each caption window in the editor. See this thread:

No, just highlight all of the ones you need to make changes to and you can make them all at once.

Thanks Jim. It's good to know that I'm not the only one struggling.... Unfortunately there's no solution so far. I sent a feature request as well.

What type of caption stream? And not all fonts are supported. Screenshots might help.

If you double-click one of the captions on the Subtitle track, it'll bring up Essential Graphics (if you don't already have it up). Edit the one how you want it, then go to Track Style and save it how you want.

 

Then go back to the Subtitle track on the Sequence and right-click in the blank area, selecting Track Settings...

Select your saved Style from the drop-down, and it'll apply to all captions/subtitles on the track.
