Default captioning - open and closed

I may to create captioning for an upcoming project. Is there a tutorial somewhere that explains how to do this in Edius? I've read in the manual how to combine a caption clip and a video clip but I did not see how the caption clip is created in Edius. 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.

Currently, you have to use external caption software to create an official caption file.
Do a Google search for caption software.

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.

Thanks, I thought in E9 they had added native captioning support. Guess I get to learn something new. I'll probably be doing open captions in the upcoming project.

Edius 9 does have native captioning support for import and playback only.

None of the video on the Subtitle Edit seem to load. Gonna take some time to learn this. Doesn't seem to recognize any of my Edius mp4 exports, I'll try downloading the filters. I better move this to another forum discussing 3rd party stuff.

Thanks for the tips.
