We are trying to export a MXF OP1A (XDCAM 50 codec) file with embedded captions. We select the option in export but the resulting file has no captions. If I select the option to generate a sidecar file, it generates a a good .srt file with all the proper captions in it. Is embedded caption broke in the CC 2021 (15.1 mac) ?
This has been reported by several others.
See these threads:
Thanks, that is a pretty major bug for a product used in broadcasting!!
By any chance are you using any of the options under the Effects tab in the Export Settings? We do have an open issue with effects applied via Effects tab in Export Settings (eg: Time Tuner, Video Limiter, etc.), that we are working on. A possible workaround is to apply the effect(s) in your Timeline, rather than Export Settings (eg: apply effect(s) to Adjustment Layer in Timeline)
One other open issue we are working on involves Sequences with non-standard frame rates (eg: Variable Frame Rate, 23.98 fps instead of 23.976, etc.). Possible workaround is to create Sequence with one of the available Timebase fps options or use one of the supplied Sequence presets.
If neither of these, any details would be helpful in our investigation.
none of the effects applied and using the standard 29.97 framerate. THis happens with the MXF OP1a XDCAM HD 50 NTSC 30p & 60i presets. The only thngs we change are to embedd the captions.
Let me know if you need me to send you any sample projects/exported media
Yes, please. PM me a link with sample Projects, original media (if possible) and exported media (if possible).
Also, is this with direct exports from Premiere Pro or queued to Media Encoder, or doesn't make a difference?
