Captions not aligning

Hi,

I'm doing subtitles in a couple of different languages for a set of videos. For some reason I have lines that won't let me center them. I center them using the square grid in Premiere, but after exporting, it's like none of my edits saved and the problem subtitles are cut off at the right.

I've tried closing and opening my project multiple times, opening it on different computers, and also copying my sequence into a whole new project. Regardless of what I do, the outcome is the same. I am unable to change the same lines, and those exact points have issues in all of the different language subtitles I'm doing. I"m using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015.4

Any help would be appreciated.

hello

1. it's a bug. hasbn't been fixed in 2017.1 either

2. What I do is export without Queue, but rather direct exporting. that works.

3. sometimes even centering is not exact but you can move it to the center by adding sapces at the end of the line

I have the same problem.  with 2015.4, im in the process of upgrading to 2017 since the tech support told me that they fixed it in that version...

If you export without Queue but rather direct export will it center align everything? If so, what do you set your X to and do u have to choose the Center Alignment? Or you can leave it as Left aligned.

Thanks!

Hi

2017 - as I've written hasn't solved the problem.

You need to align the first one from start, the next ones are supposed to follow what you've done with the first one.

after you finish - recheck all the subs, and then export directly. that's the way I work with it.

it's tough, I rather creating a template from after effects

Not fixed, I fear. I've been fighting with this for a month now and nothing works, the spaces at the end are rather unreliable as well. As I have to realign all the subtitles one by one before every test render (since there's still no "edit all" after all these years), it makes it a rather time consuming affair.

I've had this same issue, particularly when opening older projects and the only solution I have found is to change the caption font size and for some reason this resets the caption position to where it should be

If you encounter the problem of Open Captions not centering try the following:

1. Locate the Open Caption file (You can right click on the caption layer in your sequence and select Reveal in Project.

2. Select the file, File -> Export -> Captions

3. Select your file format

4. Save it as a different file name.

5. Delete your existing Caption file

6. Import the caption file you saved above

7. Insert into your Timeline

Of course the formatting of the Open Caption file resets. However, Premiere re-centers the captions.

This thread started with PR 15.4 and indicated the problem was not fixed with PR 2017. Several changes were made in PR 2018, and 2019 has just been released.

I was not able to replicate this problem in PR 2018, so I don't have a reliable test. But in PR 2018 (not sure which version if not the first) and now 2019, we are able to select all captions and set the alignment in one go.

The thread appears to be addressing in part whether certain captions can get cut off on the right. Is that still an issue for anyone, and if so, what specific dot version are you using?

Yes, my captions are cut off on the right side and do not want to align center.  I can't believe Premiere is considered a professional product that people spend thousands of dollars on over the years.

Premiere Pro CC v  12.1.2 (Build 69)

Are you sure the caption stream size matches the sequence?

This bug unfortunately made its way back in version 13.1 on Mac OS.

Very annoying.

Lines are off center and it is impossible to change the x value.
