Do I need additional software to do this or can Edius do it alone other than creating the text in a text editor?

I'll keep searching the forum but so far I have not found what I need to know through searches. I know it has been discussed here.

Thanks for any help.
Edius can't create the closed caption clip. This has to be done in another software such as Mac Caption, Caption Maker, or even Subtitle Edit.

Once you have the text timed to a video guide in these softwares, you can export an .scc file that you can then match up in Edius.

I have played around with this using both Mac Caption and Subtitle Edit, and was successful in my tests. I don't normally have to do this so I can't say I have a lot of experience, but it is a functional workflow.

Open captions are essentially text overlays (basically the same as doing subtitles) that can be created in the same softwares and exported as a video file with an alpha channel that is just put on top of the video in edius, or created in something like Vistitle.

Andreas has posted a good little tutorial using Subtitle Edit for subtitling that may give you a good kick start in all of this.
