Hello. When I import an SRT file into Camtasia 9, the captions are imported all glued together. I would like them to be separate captions (with space in between). I leave 5 seconds of space between each caption in my SRT file. The SRT file that I import is a text file. A sample is shown below.Thanks for the help.
00:00:10,000 --> 00:00:15,000
00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:25,000
00:00:30,000 --> 00:00:35,000
if you want spaces, after the SRT import, split the captions and delete slices to make spaces between the captions [usually deleting the blank captions]
if you add non-contiguous captions in a project, so that they go on as separate items [use shift-C to add the captions], you can then group all the captions to something like a callout, put the group in Library, and when you bring down the group again from Library, the captions will still be separate items; you can always export the Library asset as a libzip to keep the captions external to Camtasia
FYI, lots of captions can put a real drag on editor performance; my preference is to add captions as the last step in building out a project
I added 5 captions to a Camtasia project spaced 1 min apart as shown below. I exported them as a srt from Camtasia.
Then I deleted the originals and imported the srt. Camtasia inserted "Blank Captions" between every caption to keep them spaced apart.
I don't know it that's a practical solution for you or not?Inserting blank captions in the program you are creating them in.
Splitting and shuffling them around in Camtasia seems like a lot of work.
Great, this works! Select the caption in the upper-left menu and then select split. I see the advantage to importing the captions all glued together. It makes them easier to slide across the video. It's a pain sliding individual captions. Also, I agree that importing the captions is better done as a last step.
BTW I have an Eddyline Sky 10 Kayak - love it.
