Can´t make caption backgrounds semitransparent

Hi
I´m making captions/subtitles for a short film in Premiere Pro CC 2017 – using CEA-608, CC1.
The problem is, I can´t make the background semitransparent. I try, but it just returns to Opaque.
The problem started when I updated to the latest version of Premiere Pro earlier today. Before that, the semi transparent background worked perfectly.
Can anyone help me?

After updating my Premiere Pro, I got the following message:
«Adobe Premiere Pro requires updated video drivers for GPU accelerated rendering. Please download and install current drivers for your video card.»
Being a not-very-technical guy I wasn´t sure how to do this, and I still haven´t done it. Could my problem have something to do with this?

If its supported with open captions only, then its probably a good idea to disable the transparent option in case of closed captions.

I agree. Frustrating to have options that are not really options.

Hi Bern-art,

As far as I can tell, that option is supported with Open Captions, but not Closed Captions. Let us know if you need additional assistance with that.

Thanks,
Kevin

This is an old thread, and some issues have been fixed. What specific dot version of PR are you running?

I'm having this issue with PR CC 2019. It worked with 608 and 708 yesterday, today transparent oder semitransparent background aren't chooseable. PR 20 crashes all of a sudden during launch. F***ing frustrating. I've de- ans re-installed Pr, but it still won't work.

There have been 608/708 background color issues off and on. I don't know when this one started, but it is present in 2019.1.5 (the last 2019 version).

 

Using the Caption Panel's Import Settings button, you can set import to a transparent (or other) background, and the captions do have a transparent background. But that background cannot then be changed in the caption panel, only on import. It is now locked as transparent (or whatever you set it as on import).

 

These settings work as they should in 2020.3.2. I am not certain whether it was fixed in 2020.0.0.
