  • Closed captioning workflow

    I am getting ready to complete a 73 min documentary to which I would like to add closed captions. I understand I must get a compatible .scc file made by a third party vendor...but it's unclear to me how to add it to my EDIUS edit. Can I merge it somehow to the entire EDIUS timeline?...or must I make an intermediate (HQX, etc.) and merge it to that file? Is there a step by step workflow to follow? I know some users here have experience with this process, and I for one am confused on how to do it. A search did not give me the answers I seek.
    Thanks in advance.

    Edius merges the scc file with a video clip, so a single file is requires. You may be able to do it with a nested timeline too, but I haven't tried it.

    It would be much nicer if it lived as a separate timeline clip instead of linked to a video clip. As a separate clip it would not be dependent on syncronous embedded timecode with the video clip, but instead everything would be referenceing the master timecode of the timeline.

    How to merge is covered in the manual https://www.edius.net/downloads/en/workgroup9manual.pdf
