Displacing a set of subtitles

  • Updated 6 years ago
After importing a srt file prepared by others, the synchronization of the subtitles in my video is OK up to a point. From this point onwards, all remaining subtitles need to be moved forward. 

I would like to find a way to sue this shift without having to do it manually, caption by caption, by moving the start and end of them individually.

I have looked in all questions and tutorials that deal with subtitles, and I found nothing about this feature.

As a desperate attempt, I took a 'split' just on the track of subtitles, with the intention of moving only the segment that needs synchronization and leave intact the segment that is already synchronized. This works, but for some reason after the 'split' command there is a long delay to complete the process.

As there are many segments that need individual synchronization -some forward, some backward- at each 'split' command used, the delay to complete the process seems to increase. After 3 or 4 'splits' the project gets corrupted or incredibly slow to perform any editing on it.

Honestly, I believe this is not the way to move large segments of subtitles.

Some expert knows a tip or trick that can solve this problem?

The goal is to be able to select all of the captions at right of current cursor position, so that when commanding a shift, the beginning and end of all of them follow this displacement.

Thank you for your attention. If there is not any ready solution, please consider this as an improvement to be implemented.

you might find it faster to copy all captions, past them into notepad, then copy/paste each caption back into Camtasia one at a time

or, paste them all in at once, then re-sync

when captions do not match narration times, fixing that just takes a lot of time and effort
