Subtitle text changes are reset to original text

Hi,

 

I have a problem with the new subtitles feature. When I do the audio transcription and generate the subtitles afterwards, I have no possibility to change parts of the text permanently. So if I change a part of a text in the subtitles menu it's shown correctly but after some time it is back to the original text. I also tried to change the text of the transcript but it doesn't seem to effect the text of the generated subtitles.

Is there a save way to change the text? I have to do the subtitles of a 40 min video, and it's the third time I have to start from scratch now.

Thank you very much!

Ok, I just tried to do the editings directly on the screen. It seems that this does the job. So the subtitles tab in the text window seems to be the problem. Thank you again for your suggestions, I will do it directly in the screen.

Is Premiere Pro up to date? I've used the new tool extensively and you can change subs two ways - either in the text window or directly on the screen by double clicking on the text. I ask about updates because the behaviour you described seems like old behaviour. Also try deleting your prefs and restarting your pc. Worse comes to worse you can export the subs as an .srt and use something like SubtitleEdit to edit the subs externally. Also make sure you uninstall any plugs that might interfere like Digital Anarchy's Transcriptive.

Hi John!

Thanks for your help. Yes, Premiere is up to date and I don't have any plugins installed. I think I will edit the srt externally.

 

Thank you!

Ask John asks, what specific version of PR are you using?

 

There have been a few reports of changes to particular caption segments reverting to pre-edited text. I have not experienced this.

 

Changes to the captions should be retained. Changes to the transcript only show if you repeat the "Create Captions" step. That creates a new Caption track.

 

Be sure you are using the newest version of your project. The captions (and I believe transcripts) are stored in the project file.
