    Editing data track captions and exporting

    I have a client who needs to cut down a show that we gave them which has captions as a data track.

    The needed delivery for this cutdown does not accept OP1A .mxf files with Data.

    Is there a way to export the cutdown data  track (an AAF probably?) and convert it to a .scc file?  This seems like it SHOULD be easy.

    You should be able to just export an scc from the cutdown sequence.

    I think that is only true if you are talking open captions (SubCap).  I am not seeing anything like that for closed captions (Data Track).

    I would love to be wrong.

    Re: Editing data track captions and exporting

    In 1080i/59 and 1080p/23 with Data Track (SMPTE 436M) you can export a scc file. It works with edits in the Data Track. Timecode will be based on the sequence timecode. Have done this in MC8.6.5 and most 2018.x. Can you test this with the show you gave them?
