    subcap 2018.12.2

    The subcap effect in 2018.12.2 is not working correctly.

    The titles sometimes disappear and move around for a couple of frames.

    No keyframes were set. 

    This is not the first problem we have with subcap, it has always been a feature with bugs.

    Re: subcap 2018.12.2

    Hi Ralph,

    I have rolled back to MC8.9.1 since experiencing the random frame jumping on 2018.12.1, however I have gleaned from the forum that this bug may have been addressed in 2018.12.2 - whenever that is due for release - can you confirm this, and when it is due for release?

    Can I add that I have used Subcap a lot over the years and love it, but agree with Pol that it has issues. My main one is that the appearance of the letters on screen is somewhat unpredictable, specifically the black outline of characters is not a uniform thickness and its position/angle can change randomly per caption, so as to become more like a drop shadow, ie: wonky. I tend to use variations on Arial / semi bold / italic, etc - so no fancy fonts.

    Whilst on the subject of appearance, compared to text on the Title Tool, for example, the text is not able to be anti-aliased, so that any characters that have angled limbs (W, V, A, etc, plus all italicised letters) appear stepped (at 1920 x 1080). An option to smooth/blur the edges would make a huge improvement to the usefulness of Subcap. As an experiment I have tried adding a gaussian blur, but cant avoid affecting the layers below.

    The other frustrating issue is that the text-entry box is really small, which makes editing the text very tiring. It would be great if someday this could be addressed, so as to become a lot larger.

    regards,

    Danny

    Another sub-cap bug in 2018.12.1:

     

    When I click on Edit Master Caption list after creating a subtitle effect Media Composer crashes around 75 per cent of the time.

    This is a bug and hopefully is resolved in the next release.
