SRT exports from Caption panel includes style info in text by default

Mac OS Ventura 13.6.6

When exporting a SRT file through the Caption panel's three dot menu, there is no ability to select whether text styles should be included, and the default behavior is that the text style is included. This results in HTML-style tags being visible before each line of the subtitle text, when the SRT file is played back in most online video players. 

In the standard video Export function, or when exporting via Media Encoder, there is a checkbox under Captions that allows you to turn off the text style tags for the SRT sidecar file. This is crucial, because otherwise, any applied style information will appear as HTML-style tags on each line of the text, and most online video players that can accept SRT format will not automatically remove these tags; they just see them as part of the subtitle, and displays (what appears to the viewer to be) garbage text before every phrase. 


However, the Caption panel does NOT offer this, and thus exports only SRTs with styles applied. This means that the Caption panel export function is not usable for creating SRT files--it is useful to be able to export from here to update or correct captions, instead of re-exporting a new file from Premiere or via Media Encoder, just to get a new SRT file. 

Please add a simple text style on/off checkbox to the Caption Panel's export function, matching the functionality of the Export Media function, so that subtitles can be exported in a usable way from this panel.

Hi @Blaise Douros,

Thank you so much for writing in about your issue. I hope we can help you. You wrote:

@Stan Jones - do you have any comments? It sounds like you are requesting a feature rather than addressing a bug. Is that the case? Please let us know. I will gladly move it there for you. Sorry for the frustration.

Take Care,
Kevin

Blaise,

 

Kevin's right; this is a feature request. And a good one for all the reasons you list.

 

However, in PR 2022  they added back an easy-enough workaround.

 

File -> Export -> Captions. There, the styling option can be deselected.

 

Let us know how this works for you.

 

Stan
