I have an Encore project with Spanish captions. The client would like for there to be Spanish closed captions on the YouTube version of the video (the speakers are speaking English). I am able to export the caption file from Encore, but I don't know how to convert the .txt file to something YouTube can import. Can anyone help me?
Hi jdmack01. I've been working with subtitles a lot lately, and so I can understand your frustration/concern. ...making subtitles is a lot of hard long tedious work, and it's horrible when things don't move easily from one system to another!
As for your YouTube question, here's the answer: ^_^
YouTube currently supports the upload of the following caption script formats:
I'm using Adobe CS6, and it currently seems to only export a subtitle/caption file as a simple TXT script file. (not a supported YouTube format) However, there's a wonderful opensource (free) subtitling program called "Subtitle Edit" (can be found here-> www.nikse.dk ) that will take your Encore exported subtitles (and nearly any other captioning format) and allow you to save them in most of the formats above. By default YouTube likes the SubViewer format (.sbv) so I recommend saving as that.
To export your subtitles from Encore, click "Timeline" from the top menu, and then "Export Subtitles" in the drop-down. Export your Text script and then open it in the Subtitle Edit program. Choose "Save as" under the File menu, and then save your captions as the Youtube .sbv format. (it's currently the next to last file format listed in the dropdown save menu)
I just recently became introduced to Subtitle Edit. It has a bit of a learning curve, but will prove to be a huge asset if you plan on doing more subtitling in your future. Hope that helps!
Hello. I have the same problem, that is to upload a video with subtitles on YouTube (this is to share the prerelease with a partner who's on the other side of our planet).
I have used Subtitle Edit which is a great program and much easier to use than Subtitel Workshop.
I can convert Encore .swf to one of YouTube format.
So I end up with 2 files (.mp4 and .sbv) and then what? Just upload them to YT? How to sync the two?
I know it's a YouTube problem but didn't find yet the "howto" and even if there is anyway out.
And I thing Adobe should really consider to have other output formats availble on Encore.
Thanks. Actually I had the solution from a local friend.
Yes indeed, YouTube can handle subtitles/captions.
You have to use YT video formats: http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=2888402&page= ts.cs

*as said earlier in this thread, Subtitle Edit www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit is a very good free program not only to make your subtitles but to convert .txt to .sbv
Sorry; you are right. Your question is really a YouTube question. Your links are not working.
This page dealt with formats. (FYI, Encore exports a .txt file which is not listed; it is cumbersome to add them there. Just use your standalone option.)
This page dealt with upload.
Hi! Dragonspear... I have a question... I've been using "Subtitle Edit" and everything seems to be normal but... when I export a .SCC - Scenarist Closed Caption file to adobe encore CS6 it doesn't work ... and I don't know why...
I mean when I've finished the proyect and I'm ready to build I get a window message that said "Closed caption file is invalid" please help me :´(
I think the problem could be the software "Subtitle Edit" because Encore work perfect when I don't use SCC files.
Hi Robert-Art. At this current time I haven't found that Encore imports SCC files directly. The main subtitle format I've imported with Encore are those in a .txt format.
The nice thing about Subtitle Edit is that you can take your file and export it in any one of a hundred formats. When in Subtitle Edit do the following:
That should work!

I'm not certain I understand the question. As far as I know, YouTube plays everything back at your original frame-rates.
Are you saying you want to convert your 23.976 footage to 24 and then upload?
