FAQ Regarding EDIUS

This is because of the incorrect position of Title Template Library window in certain situation (e.g. User’s computer was connected with double monitors. After changing to single monitor, the Title Template Library window still displays in the other invisible monitor). Just press Ctrl+Shift+F12. It will reset the Title Template Library to the default position.

FAQ Regarding Adobe

Please choose the right title format in the highlighted option and ensure that the title format is in accordance with current sequence format.

a. If you install VisTitle recently. And it cannot record for the first time you enter Premiere Pro. Then just exit from Premiere Pro and restart the program again.

b. Please check if the shortcut key of play timeline in Avid is “Space-bar”. If not, please change to “Space-bar”. After that you can play timeline by pressing “Space-bar”. There is another reason. If you open Chinese Input Method Editor, timeline cannot be played by pressing “Space-bar”. Please close Chinese IME first.

c. Since VisTitle cannot control Avid timeline playing directly, it is the “Space-bar” that tells Avid to play after clicking on “Record” button. If you cannot record, then VisTitle fails to control Avid playing. Please close the subtitle interface and move the timeline ruler for several times. Make sure that the “Space-bar” can play timeline, then open subtitle interface to record.

Please set the playback resolution and paused resolution of Premiere Pro as Full Resolution.

See the following picture.

Right-click and select the highlighted options in the drop-down menu.

Make sure that parameters in Playback Resolution and Paused Resolution are “Full”.

Set Fields is Display Both Field.

This is because of the cache of Premiere Pro system. It only happens when you record for the second time, you can ignore the problem. After finishing recording, close the subtitle dialog and play timeline. It will not happen again.

That is because VisTitle can’t get the accurate position of subtitle clip on the timeline of Premiere Pro sometimes. It needs the user’s help to identify so that correct time code can be recorded while recording.

Double-click subtitle clip on the timeline as shown below:

Select time code in Clip In Point Options dialog. Then click “OK”.

Note: Before editing subtitle clip, you’d better move the timeline ruler to the about position of subtitle in point so that you can confirm in point position referring to the time code of Premiere Pro while selecting. Or you can align the subtitle clip as close as possible to zero of timeline while creating subtitle.

That is because of the internal mechanism of Premiere Pro. It is unavoidable. If this happens, please delete the clip from the timeline and drag the same clip to the same position from Bin Window.

FAQ Regarding Avid

Please check if title format in Global Settings (highlighted option in the following picture) corresponds to sequence format of Avid. You can apply “Auto Match” function to do the quick matching. Each time you click “Auto Match”, the program will find a target format.

a. Please check if the shortcut key of play timeline in Avid is “Space-bar”. If not, please change to “Space-bar”. After that you can play timeline by pressing “Space-bar”. There is another reason. If you open Chinese Input Method Editor, timeline cannot be played by pressing “Space-bar”. Please close Chinese IME first.
b. Since VisTitle cannot control Avid timeline playing directly, it is the “Space-bar” that tells Avid to play after clicking on “Record” button. If you cannot record, then VisTitle fails to control Avid playing. Please close the subtitle interface and move the timeline ruler for several times. Make sure that the “Space-bar” can play timeline, then open subtitle interface to record.

Please set Avid NLE Render as Full Screen Render or 1/2 Screen Render in the highlighted position.

This is because of the cache of Avid NLE system. It only happens when you record for the second time, you can ignore the problem. After finishing recording, close the subtitle dialog and play timeline. It will not happen again.

Please ensure that “Preview Subtitle on Hardware When Clapping” option in Global Settings is selected. On this basis, when clapping, the subtitle preview image might delays to get on in video output for some boards (please refer to the description of Question 7).

This is because of the internal mechanism of Avid NLE system. It can’t be avoided completely. Time-delay only occurs in the process of clapping. It will not affect the accurate clapping of time code and it will not happen during playing. If you close “Preview Subtitle on Hardware When Clapping” option, then the effect can be real-time previewed by VGA in Avid Preview Window. There is no delay in this mode. This clapping mode is recommended.
