I'm trying to bring captions files created in a Premiere 2020 project back into a 2019 project. I've already tried the method of removing extra spaces and any weird characters via text edit using SRT cleaner...But when I try and import it into my 2019 project half of the captions are still gone. The odd thing is, if I import it into the 2020 project it's totally fine.
I'm not sure how to tell what version it was created in? But I'm opening it in 2020 v14.3.1. My edit project is in 2019 v13.1.5.
After researching some, I think it's some bugginess within Premiere's captions tool. I ended up adjusting all the start/end time codes for any captions that were one directly after the other and deleting accidental spaces by hand in the 2020 project. Then re-exported and brought into 2019 which seemed to fix the issue- still was a cumbersome and timesuck of a process.
