Subtitle issue: imported srt captions out of sync (1000 frames per second!)

I'm trying to import SRT caption files into Premiere Pro CC 2017 and it seemed to be okay at first - I dragged the .SRT subtitle file into the project window, all fine so far. Then I dragged the caption (media) from the project window into the timeline, it seems okay... wait, why is it 10 minutes shorter than it should be? And why is the text so tiny? Double-checking the original file in Windows notepad, the last caption in the SRT file is at 1hr 16m 53s, but when imported into the sequence, it has been squished to 1hr 7min - so it's nearly 10 mins out of sync by the end of the sequence.

I checked the project window and noticed the frame rate is set at 1000 fps! and the video resolution is 720x480.

Any knowledge how to adjust the default import settings for captions? Any other ideas to solve this issue?

My setup:

Asus laptop, windows 10

Intel i7-4710HQ 2.5GHz

8GB RAM

NVIDIA Geforce GTX 850M

Thank you,

Charlie

Cklewis, what version of PR are you using?

 

I think this was resolved. If not, there is now an Import Settings button in the Caption Panel that allows you to specify the settings.

Might not fully solve the problem but you have to sync the first caption. I can see from your video that your first Subtitle starts at 00:05:07,xxx. So when you drop the caption into the timeline you have to start it at that time code not at 00:00:00
