.SRT import: limiting caption character length

Good afternoon,

I have an .srt file (language not supported by Adobe's transcribe service) with roughly 10 sec time stamps.


Some of them create 3-4 lines of text. I've limited the display to two lines with Essential Graphics settings, but some content is not shown.


I've tried splitting them in the captions window, but the tile doubles.
Based on other discussions, there is an issue with caption splitting. So, is it possible to limit character length on .SRT, like it is possible when creating a caption from an Adobe-generated transcript?


So I can display all content, but in up to two lines.


Thank you,
Version 23.5.0 (build S6)

Try editing them from the Captions Track in the Timeline.  

You'll notice that each caption has a Clip Boandary just like video or audio.

Based on what you described, the Razor Tool should work well for adding edits to your captions.  Try to match the natural flow of whomever is speaking, adding edits that match the pauses in speech or at points that split the grammatical structure of what's being said in written from.

For example, I'd break the following sentence that I worte above into the following three captions:

  • Based on what you described
  • the Rasor Tool should work
  • for adding edits to your captions.

Yes, thank you. I can do that manually. Split, delete back half in one, top half in another.

But since I will have hours of materials I am trying to figure if I can (semi)automate that.

If PremierPro produces transcript, by limiting character length I can control on how many slates/tiles content will be spread over.

When I import .srt with 10sec bites, some slates are 3-4 lines. When I limit size via Essential panel it will show two lines, but the rest of the content will remain hidden. I would like to get rest of the content on the new slate. It will need position adjustment, but I would get content and that would save me from a lot of manual labor.

If someone has an idea…
Thank you
