How to 'Burn in' subtitles in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Have you ever imported a subtitle file in Adobe Premiere Pro CC with the intention to make burned in subtitles? As you might have noticed, the caption editor in Premiere doesn’t give you much styling options, and is pretty cumbersome in usage. If you want to go the way of creating an Essential Graphics title for each subtitle, that means you’ll have to do a lot of copying and pasting by hand.

There must be an easier way, right?

This is where subtitle2xml comes in action! Subtitle2xml converts subtitle files to xml files, that can be imported in Adobe Premiere pro as Essential Graphics titles!

Import your .srt file into Subtitle2xml

Just import your srt file into subtitle2xml, or import multiple files at once. You can preview your subtitles, and add or remove subtitles from your render queue. There’s also the ability to load your own styling template, or just stick with the default one.

Export to Premiere Essential Graphics

Once you’re happy, just click the export button and select where you want to save. Subtitle2xml now converts your subtitles to xml files that can be read by Adobe Premiere Pro.

Overlay your titles in Premiere

When that’s finished, import the xml files into Adobe Premiere Pro CC. All your subtitles are now converted to timelines filled with Essential Graphics titles. You can overlay them on your videos, change timings, and even change the text on the fly!
