Say if I want to edit existing captions in a sequence. Is there a way export the revised captions without exporting a new video with sidecar captions? I feel like I was able to do this a year ago, but maybe I'm mistaken. I'm on Premiere 2021 (15.0.0) now. Thank you.
Ah, thanks. I see it now when changing to the Captions view.
I just did a test and exported SRT. It did format it differently though from when I exported the SRT as a sidecar file with a video. It's putting the text in a black box, but maybe it's automatically saving with SRT styling. I wish it had that option to turn not do that, if that's the reason.
Actually nevermind what I said about the styling. It only has the black box text when checking that new SRT file in Premiere. But if I play it back with VLC, it doesn't have the black box text. It looks fine.
The sidecar export via the File -> Export -> Media has the checkbox for "include SRT Styling." So you can keep your file from including font etc tags. For some reason, using the export from the Text Panel/3 dots does not allow you to make that choice.
Some third player plays will have issues with the styled export.
