Q: What are subtitles/closed captioning?
Closed captioning and subtitles both refer to text that is added over-top of video to help viewers better understand the content on-screen.
Q: What is the difference between subtitles and closed captioning?
Subtitles (sometimes referred to as open captions) are part of the main video image, meaning that they cannot be turned off or hidden. However, closed captioning is part of a data track or seperate text file and can be turned on and off by the viewer.
Q: How do I add subtitles to my video?
Most video editing software (e.g. Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, FCPX, etc.) will allow users to import a closed caption or subtitle file (e.g. SRT, SCC, STL, etc.) in order to create a video with subtitles.
Q: What is Closed Caption Creator used for?
Closed Caption Creator is a subtitle editor that makes it easy to create closed captioning and subtitle files using special shortcuts and video controls. Closed Caption Creator can be 10x faster than creating captions inside of Premiere Pro.
Q: Can I export video from Closed Caption Creator?
Not at this time. Closed Caption Creator is only able to export closed caption and subtitle files. We have future plans to include an encoder that will export video with embedded captioning or burnt-in subtitles.
