More Closed Captioning control?
I am running Resolve 15b2 and have been futzing with the Sub Title feature. I have an edited 30 sec. spot that I am adding closed captions to. It’s a very simple spot but it has a graphic across the lower part of the screen with phone number, address and web information throughout the spot. I would like to not cover up this information with the closed captioning info if possible. It’s easy to position the captions in Resolve so that they display just above the baked in info on the screen. But once outputted to a finished QT file and played back, the captioning position/typeface info is at the mercy of whatever is playing the file back. Quicktime Player plays it back one way. VLC plays it back in another style. It all depends on how the player preferences are set up. I haven’t run it through our “official” hardware broadcast caption decoder yet, so I don’t know what it does with the file.
Finally, the question.
Is there a way to “force” the caption position/typeface/style into the captions while still within Resolve so that the CC info will playback consistently as far as style and position and not depend on what software or hardware is decoding the captions? or is this beyond the simple subtitle ability of Resolve 15 at this point?
