Digibeta tapes with closed captioning
We’ve got a large project where we need to ingest Digibeta tapes to Apple ProRes files and preserve the closed captioning that exists on the tapes.
So far, we have done some tests where the closed captioning is being saved into the embedded ProRes file, however, Premiere Pro doesn’t understand this.
The current workflow is to capture the tapes with PP, then ingest the footage using Magix Vegas.
Vegas, once ingesting the footage, builds peaks and references the embedded closed captioning. In addition to creating a PEK file for its peaks, it will also send out a SCC file with closed captioning data.
We can ingest this data into PP, but this is an extra step PP should be able to avoid.
Does anybody have any suggestions on this workflow?
