Closed Captioning for Adobe CS
using CPC's closed captioning software
A complete HD closed captioning and subtitling solution.
No additional CC hardware required. No generation loss!!!
CPC's CaptionMaker (Windows) and MacCaption (Mac) software enable many different kinds of closed captioning software workflows for Adobe's Creative Suite 5.5 software such as Premiere Pro, Encore, and Flash:
Closed Caption HD Tape via HD-SDI
CaptionMaker/MacCaption (DTV and HD Enterprise) can create CPC's original .MCC file format for high definition closed captioning with Premiere Pro CS5.5. Simply author your closed captions (or convert a cap file from another captions source), attach the .MCC file to your Premiere Pro sequence, and output to HD Tape with true CEA-708 and CEA-608 closed captions. Output via your AJA Kona, Blackmagic Decklink, Matrox MXO2 series¹, or MOTU video device. CPC's unique software encoding technology means no special encoding hardware is necessary. You can even monitor the HD closed captions inside Premiere Pro's Program Monitor.
Closed Caption SD Tape via SDI and Analog
CaptionMaker/MacCaption (NLE, DTV, and HD Enterprise) can create a SD closed captions file for Premiere Pro CS5.5 for tape output using your AJA, Blackmagic, Matrox¹, or MOTU hardware. You can even monitor the closed captions inside Premiere Pro's Program Monitor. You can also create a line 21 overlay video ("black movie") for any NLE including earlier vesrions of Premiere, Avid, FCP, Edius, Vegas, etc.
¹ Note: Matrox MXO2 series on Mac OSX currently uses a different workflow for adding CC. Please see: Matrox MXO2 4VANC Workflow on Mac.
