    Importing QT with Closed Captioning

    Hey All...

    I have a QT file with embedded closed captioning that I need to preserve during a round trip in and out of my Avid.

    Anyone have a workflow for me?

    Here's what MediaInfo says about the text streams:

    Re: Importing QT with Closed Captioning

    Avid does not Import or Export Closed Captions in a QuickTime wrapper. It does Import and Export CC's in MXF OP1a XDCam HD. Avid will capture and play out a Data Track with Nitris DX (HD SDI) and DNxIO. It will Import a Data Track from  a AAF file (broken in MC8.8.2) and play it out HD SDI. It will Import a SCC file and display the CC's on the UI but not play out SDI. You can also look at Telestream MacCaption (CaptionMaker for Windows).

    Good luck!

    Hi Don:

    Thanks for the detailed note re captioning.  Do you happen to know, for digital broadcast delivery, do I need to supply a QT with embedded CC, or would a 29.97 QT file with a .scc file be acceptable?

    Thanks in advance for any tips/insight.

    Best, JIM.

    Jim,

    I would check with each network for their delivery specs. We deliver embedded CC, separate SCC and both.
