after last update Premiere Pro dont export SRT file anymore.
i tried using FILE -> EXPORT -> sidecar (i have just audio and video file, no srt)
i tried using new TEXT TAB, subtitles -> export SRT. open file dialog box but no srt file after
TEXT TAB, subtitles -> export SRT - works for me and seems to be the proper way to do this in the new captions workflow. Is it a subtitle track you have created from scratch or is it from an imported SRT?
it's work, wasnt export because at begin was a empty subtitle, i was used to create this for sync. i removed and export was correct
I have the same problem, couldnt solve it yet.
Check if in Your subtitles do you have some empty one or something else can be a "error". I just think they forgot a error check and if it's a error just don't make the file.
There are 2 methods for exporting, for example, .srt. One is, as Mike describes, in the Text Panel, using the 3 dots icon, direct export of .srt. Note that this does NOT give you the option of excluding styling commands. Also, one user indicates that the timecode are different than if exporting using this next method.
The second method is the tranditional Ctrl-M (File -> Export Media) and selecting sidecar from the Captions tab. This allows exclusing styling commands from .srt.
Edit: this second method requires you to select audio, video, or both in order to export.
Yes, both those methods do not work. The srt simply is. not created. just spend about two hours demonstrating it to a customer service person, by sharing screen. Nothing helped... yet.
Renato, thanks for responding. Can you provide a screenshot of your Timeline, Program Monitor, and Text Panel?
Also, what OS? This working for me on Win10.
This is the time line
and the text panel
Thanks for your assistance!
Yes, i thought its a bug. But this means ill have to wait untill the next version to get my srt file done?
It could mean waiting for a bug fix release. I'm still brain-storming workarounds, but I don't see one yet.
Can you export a text file from the Text Panel?
Did you create these captions in PR, or did you import an srt?
Did you keep PR 2020 installed when you updated to PR 2021? You can install it if not.
I just did two tests to see if a PR 2021 project with captions can be rolled back to PR 2020 with the captions intact. My tests say no. The official revert method is to export (from 2021) to FCPX/XML. It opens in PR 2020, but there are no captions. The unofficial method is to modify the project file flag to version 1, then open with PR 2020. It opens, but again, without captions.
This is not surprising; captions in 2021 are not video clips, and they use an entirely new track type.
Finally I would use the "call a friend" method. Perhpas another Mac user (or PC?) could open your project file and export the srt? I don't think the media is needed. I cannot yet confirm it, but I suspect the text is in the project file. Perhaps not...
Thanks for your efforts Stan, is very important for me.
I also cant export just one text file from the Text Panel.
And yes, i created these captions in PR.
I called a friend, he will try on a windows version. I will let you know if it works.
Pietro, thanks for posting what you thought worked.
I can only partially duplicate it.
If I create a caption track and add no captions, I can "save srt" from the Text Panel. There is no error, and there is no file.
But one empty caption, or an empty caption as caption one with other okay captions - it actually saves a file.
The file might create an error, because PR in the past would choke on an srt with an extra empty line.
So still a mystery to me!
