Hello,

I have a set of captions that starts at 9:21 in the timeline.  I am trying to extend the beginning of the caption file to the 0:00 position of the timeline so that the timing will be correct when I export it to srt.  Is there a way to do that?  When I click on the edge of the caption file, I can't pull it any further to the left.  Alternatively, does anyone know why when I export the srt file and try to upload to Youtube so that it can be closed caption, all the timing is about 9 seconds too early?  If anyone knows how to shift all the captions in Youtube down by 9 seconds (without having to adjust the timing on every caption), I'd love to hear!  Thanks in advance for your help.

I have the same issue as above, although in my case its only about one second off. It's a 30 min lecture that has already been delivered to the client. There has to be a way to not have to move each caption's in and out point back one second.

I still don't understand why this is often a problem. I just downloaded a Youtube generated caption file for a video I did that starts with music; the sound starting at 1 frame. Youtube automatic caption generation includes a caption "[Music]" starting at 38 milliseconds. I modified that Youtube caption file, deleting the first caption, so it starts delayed by a second and a half. It plays correctly in Youtube. I modified it outside PR and in PR; same results.

 

But if you are having a problem, and the captions are off by the amount of the first caption's delay from zero, add a caption in PR at zero timecode with a single space.

 

Let us know if this helps. I'm happy to look at your caption file.
