Almost there…

cc-captionSo close to being on the air.  The TV station we are trying to get on has accepted our video format and the content but we need to provide them with closed captions. 

We ended up hiring a company in Pennsylvania, ccmaker.com to do the work of transcribing and timing out all of the captions.  They send is back a computer file that has the captions on them and input them back in our video.  Here is where the problem comes in.  The complete file we are sending the tv station doesn’t seam to be in a format that they can read the captions with.  We are editing with Sony Vegas because it’s the only editing program that seams to be able to embedded captions back in the rendered file.  But it’s just not working quiet right yet.  I tried Final Cut, and Adobe Premiere Pro and they all say “embedding captions in the video is not possible at this time”

“Help me Vegas.. you’re my only hope”

I’ve got a discussion going on the Sony Forum about the issue and have gotten some good input so far…

There are also training videos saying it should work..

I just can’t get it work.  Today I purchased a support contract with Sony to try and enlist their help to solve this issue.  Once that’s done hopefully the can help me get the 2nd language running as well.
