Trying to find a better work flow for subtitles. Anyone know a better way than this?

Trying to make my life a bit easier on +15min videos that need subtitles.

Currently autotranscribing the sequence into a text transcript, then create a text layer, give it a good look, add animation keyframes for them to pop in with, and copy/paste the text from the text panel into each text layer on the timeline (with the needed spellchecking) via alt + dragging and dropping.

Wondering if there's a way for me to automatically have this process be completed (par the spellchecking). 
I need to somehow find a way to autotranscribe the whole sequence, convert the text into some sort of file that I can drop into premiere and I'll have the all the subtitles in their own 'animated' text layer right where they need to be, with all having left to do is spellcheck and rearrange some sentences. 

Anyone have any ideas? Been searching all day but nothing really gets close to what I'm trying to accomplish here. Thanks very much for any help!

The good news is that the ability to convert captions to animatable subtitles is on the way, but it's not quite here yet.

 

In the interim the best workflow that I've heard about is using an app on Windows called Subtitle2XML, which you can get on the Windows Store for about $10. You'll get an XML that you can import into Premiere and your subs will come in as graphics.

Hey Tiebo, Hi Phillip,

You may want to check out the latest version of the Beta. I believe they have a new feature for this.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Here is information on the Beta option Kevin describes. It is a huge step forward.

 

The Beta version (23.1.0) is a newer (version 23) project file version, so you can't open a project file from there in PR 22.


The Beta can be installed independently from your production version(s).
See the Beta FAQs:

And here is the Beta forum post regarding this option. They’d love your feedback:
