I have recently subtitled a 2-hr long film with the title tool instead of the caption tool. When I embarked, I was unaware that the caption tool existed or that I could export a beautiful .srt file from it. Now I seek to convert all my titles to captions, and then convert a .srt file.
I have tried to export .xml and .omf to convert to .srt with some freeware on the internet but all those have failed.
If anyone has a solution to this, or has a freeware that is realiable I will greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.
That is an interesting question. As far as I know, it is not possible to convert the titles into captions. However, I'll research the issue at my end and see if there is any other workaround available in this situation.
That would be a great feature! Imagine not having to manually re-copy and paste dozens or hundreds of lines of text!
Check out the public beta, available from the Beta tab in your Creative Cloud Desktop app. They've added some major new captions capabilities there, and this might be possible with that function. You can have any of the beta apps loaded alongside the current app, and actually work a project in one and the other and back.
This is not possible using PR only. It is possible for someone to create a script to do this (I think), but I don't think it has been done.
The Beta is a work in progress, and does not yet have the ability to export srt at all. And I'd be surprised if they have added a "convert regular graphics text" to caption text at the early stage.
Yes, it is a high priority as a feature to add. And since both functions will now live in the graphics text space (I think), it should be very possible.
Please add that feature soon
