Yes, normally that should work.

Your caption stream is 720x480. What is your sequence setting; they should match.

As a test, place the play head over one caption; select it. Change that caption's font size.

Your x% value shows "mult" which means that there is a problem there, or when you are changing the location, not all captions are selected.

I don't recall whether I could tell: how did you select all?

Edit: I'm not convinced yet that this is the problem, but here is the link I promised. Generally, when this is the problem, it can't be replicated so easily.

I went back and re did the video with a new project i called test. I imported the open captions and dragged and dropped them where the sequense goes so it should have the same settings, than I placed the play head over one caption; selected it changed the caption's font size and nothing. I attached a video below

Thanks for the replays man, really appreciate your help!

I still think they should work as you are doing, but you are importing 4 different caption formats at once. I want to be sure that PR is interpreting your caption stream correctly and that the caption stream matches the sequence it is in.

But this works for me: import ONLY the .srt file. Double click it so it opens in the source monitor. If not on a caption, move the current time indicator so a caption shows in the source monitor. Open the caption panel. Select the caption you see in the source monitor. Change the font size; I see a change.

If you do not, right click in the project panel and New Item -> Captions and make it Open Captions and whatever timebase and pixel size you are working with. Leave the default text - "Type Caption Text Here." Double click that stream in the project panel so it opens in the Source Monitor. Select that text in the Caption Panel if it is not already. Change the font size. Does that work?

Thank you so much for the help, I got the captions to work importing them the way you told me.

Now the next problem is that they won't render! I am pretty sure I am setting up the right render setting, will upload a vid soon.

Thank you so much for the help btw, i wonder why this crap is so buggy

Thanks for reporting. By render, do you mean exporting as burned in? If so, as a test, export from PR, not AME. Does that work?

I think i figured out how to Render through AME. I just had to make sure I...

1. The frame rate of my composition is 24 and matches the frame rate the captions are burned as in the captions settings tab in AME.

2. There is no linked work from After Effects sitting in the timeline

I did that and somehow some way it worked and have rendered 3 videos already!

Thanks for the help Stan Jones, you have basically walked my through this crap.

Thank You!!!!

I forget about the AE link problem. You nailed it.

I'm not sure this is the same bug, and they may have addressed parts of it. But an AE link is affecting you!

Floating this issue back to the top...

 

Run into same issue. I have my .srt file in my sequence. Says it's open captions. I see the type style edits in the preview window of caption window, but does not change on my timeline.

It happens for no reason I can find. Several threads, one with a list of workarounds to try. Can't find the link until tomorrow. One is to save project, close, and reopen.

I recently went through this kludgy behavior, think I responded in another thread here on the forum...

 

Try giving your Premiere program and/or machine an enema - Restart. When I quit out of Premiere and opened file again the captions magically were editable. Make sure it's an .srt file for your captions.

 

Also helps to post screengrabs of your issue for other experts here far beyond my skills who can respond.
