What's new in version 6.5

Version 6.5
  • The Open-Captioned Movie export will now allow relocating the captions to a different height on the movie. It used to only allow captions at the bottom. By selecting one of 15 caption positions from the Caption Row pulldown menu (1 is at the top and 15 is at the bottom), you can choose where all your captions will be located. Note that all captions will appear at this selected row location throughout the movie.
Version 6.4
  • New Preferences control over the size of the text in the box where you type your captions. Previously the size of the text would be reflected by the font size you have selected in the Text Properties area and would display that size when any of the captions were clicked on in the list. Sometimes when captions used a larger font size, much of the caption could not be seen due to the font size, so this size will be standardized by whatever you choose in the Preferences window. The default Text Display Size is 13, but it can be set to whatever you want. These settings will be saved for the next time you open MovieCaptioner.
Version 6.3
  • Movie should now stop playing automatically when the time left till the end of the movie is less than the Repeat Interval time.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause crashes when files are imported prior to loading a movie.
  • Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause a NaN duration. It will now try to reload the movie to get a valid duration.
  • If using the Split Caption button after using Set Timecode and the next caption was not yet timed, it will give the new caption a 00:00:00.00 timecode so the timecode will not go to an earlier time than the timed caption as it did before.
Version 6.22
  • New Multi-file Export option allows you to select as many different exports as you need and export with one click. By default it will place them in a Multi File Exports folder on your Desktop. Note that the SCC caption format is not included in the multi-file export as it can cause issues with other export formats.
  • New Able Player export allows you to create interactive transcripts that highlight as the video plays. Please see the comments in the resulting web page that it creates for instructions on how to set it up. You will basically download the AblePlayer folder from and keep that folder, the html file, and VTT file in the same folder as your movie on your website. Note that you will need to upload the files to your web server to see the transcripts work as they may not work locally on your hard drive.
  • Fixed a bug where previously it would not allow you to save your project to the same folder as the video, causing the Save window to appear each time you tried to create a caption.
  • Restored the form field allowing you to set the number of seconds where a blank caption will automatically be added when using the Set Timecode button. This was missing on the last version, but still was available via the Preferences window.
Version 6.18:
  • Fixed issue with beep sound getting out of sync with the repeat loop
  • Fixed issue with current time not being added when adding new captions and not using the Start button
  • Improved the way the Open-Captioned Movie export centers rows of text vertically
  • Minor bug fixes and tweaks
