Auto Captions allows you to export .srt captions files for your videos with a range of different options.
Start First Caption at 00:00
This option allows you to adjust the timings of all captions within your file, so that the first caption begins at exactly 00:00.
If your captions file originally times the first caption to appear at 00:41, all of your captions will be adjust forwards by 41 seconds, so that your first caption will appear at 0 seconds.
This option will add a delay to the beginning of your captions file.
If your captions file originally times the first caption to appear at 00:41, you can add a timing adjustment of 10 seconds, meaning your first caption will now appear at 00:51. If you have enabled the
Start First Caption at 00:00 option, this timing adjustment will become the exact time that your first caption appears.
For example, if you know that you will add an intro to your video, you can add a timing adjustment to your captions file that is the same as your video intro length.
Caption Linger Time
This is the maximum amount of time that a single caption will remain visible in your video.
If your video has a portion where there is no speech, you can use an appropriate Caption Linger Time setting to make sure that the last spoken caption doesn’t remain visible for too long.
Equally, you can set this option to
No Limit, so that the last caption always remains visible.
