Hi all,

Fairly inexperienced user here. I have made several videos with SRT files for the captions. No problems until the latest attempt. The MP4 is fine but the SRT file has a weird extension and is empty everytime I export it. The SRT name is as shown here: Name.mp4.26460.18560.SRT

Kind regards

When I export srt from "Sequence 01" (from the Text Panel, Captions Tab, 3 dots, but any method works the same), I get a file name "Sequence 01.12836.52...

Have you tried making a new project and see if a different clip works? And if so, in that project, would this clip work?

For better or worse, PR does not allow exporting empty captions and does not warn you that it is truncating the export file.

Great support. 🙂
