trying to edit multicam clips with subtitles into timeline and keeping multicam functionality

Hi all, 

I'm editing a multicam project in a foreign language, so subtitles are a must. I have a subtitles track within my multicam clips but it appears as its own camera and does not cut into the timeline if I want to keep the multicam active/as a multicam clip rather than unnested/as individual clips. Is there no way to make subtitles functional within a multicam clip and edit them into the timeline without "unnesting"/losing the multicam? (I know I could nest the subtitles on top of the multicam clip but that will be really cumbersome when my edit is more complex and I want to look at different cam angles quickly.) 

 

I appreciate any other suggestions!

Hi Sarqs,

I heard from engineering. They said, "We do not support embedded captions visibility from a nested sequence (i.e., Multicam) into a container sequence. Sorry."

 

Suggested workaround:

  • Create an intermediate sequence that contains the Multicam clip on track one, and then paste the captions into that sequence.
  • Ensure the dimensions and framerate for this sequence match the Multicam sequence. This sequence serves as your new "source clip."
  • When you're editing, load the sequence into th

Hi Sarqs,

Sorry. You may want to get all your clips loaded with captions, burn them in, and cut your Multicam. With identical timecodes, you could relink the flattened edit once you finish editing, then run a new set of captions. Do your fine captions editing before the final export. Would that work?

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Thank you Kevin - that would work for sure and seems like the only way unless I am willing to lose multicam functionality and just edit with all the video tracks and subtitle track or from sequences. I was just hoping to save days of transcode time as proxies have already been created but without subtitle burn in.

Just a process update - Unless I'm missing something (which is entirely possible), it seems that burning subtitles into media AND keeping the original timecode is a larger deal than it really should be. So far I'd have to create a new sequence for every clip with  the timeline TC to match clip TC in order to burn in subtitles and have my audio channels match (so things relink like proxies).  Not a huge deal if it were just a couple clips but otherwise just not feasible with an indie project's post schedule. (if anyone is curious I thought Resolve might have a workaround but the option to export individual clips from the timeline greys out burning in subtitles option). Looks like I'll be copy pasting from timelines with subtitles/captions to edit instead of using clips/multicams in the source window. Bummer.

I like Kevin's workaround. I wonder if the new public Beta work on "assemble rough cuts" can be used for multicam. I have not experimented with it enough, but I think its use for multicam is important, and may already be something they envision.

 

I posted about this in the Beta forum:

Feel free to provide some feedback there.

Hi Sarqs,
I will ask the product team to see if they have any suggestions. Otherwise, we can get a feature request written up.

Suggested workaround:

  • Create an intermediate sequence that contains the Multicam clip on track one, and then paste the captions into that sequence.
  • Ensure the dimensions and framerate for this sequence match the Multicam sequence. This sequence serves as your new "source clip."
  • When you're editing, load the sequence into the source monitor as if it were a source clip or Multicam sequence.
  • Be sure that "Insert and overwrite sequences as nests or individual clips" is disabled, and then edit as usual.

 

This will cut your Multicam clip into the timeline, along with their captions.

 

Let us know if that works for you.

 

Thanks,

Kevin
