Tip #1664: Add & Trim Captions
The latest version of Premiere now treats captions like clips.
One of the new features in Premiere Pro is the ability to trim captions like clips.
One you add a caption track (Sequence > Captions > Add New Caption Track), you can add captions into the track similar to how you add clips into the timeline. (Sequence > Captions > Add Caption at Playhead)
NOTE: The Caption Track is simply a container that holds captions. The captions themselves are treated similar to video clips.
To trim a caption, grab an edge and drag. Just as with clips, ripple trimming a caption (the yellow trim tool) pulls up or pushes down all following captions. While roll trimming a caption (the red trim tool) adjusts the start or end of a caption without affecting the position of any other captions.
To change the text in a caption, select it, then change the text in the Caption panel.
NOTE: If the Captions panel is not showing, double-click a caption to display it; it is not included in the list of panels in the Windows menu.
