  • Captions in FCP X vs Subtitles

    Posted by Gerry Fraiberg on February 19, 2020 at 3:35 pm

    My client has asked for on screen subtitles for interview clarity. I’ve been using TKY Subtitler Effect for years with good results. I’m new to FCP X built in Captions. Can any Caption option be embedded to automatically show on screen? Final video will likely be on client’s web site, but also shown from laptop on projector.

    Captions can be used for subtitles and you can even export .srt files (you can also import .srt). By using roles, you can even create alternate captions in multiple languages for exporting different versions of a project for different audiences.
