Our ability to master your program to any of our high definition or standard definition formats with closed captions is truly unique. Mastering with captions in-house atC21 Digital's eliminates unnecessary steps such as the creation of additional clones. Our workflow will minimize both the time and cost of the process. It will also give you the opportunity to view your captions in the comfort of our edit suite before they go to broadcast. If you want to streamline your own in-house mastering process, we can generate a closed caption file for use in your layoff to tape from Final Cut Pro. . If you have Final Cut Pro and an AJA Kona card, we can make you a file that will enable you to master in house with closed captions. All we need from you is a reference movie of your entire timeline (including all color bars and black) and a transcript. We will send you a .mov file based on these elements. You can preview the subtitles in the QuickTime player (“Show Closed Captioning” in the View menu must be selected). In Final Cut Pro when you Edit to Tape or Print to Video, go to the Mastering Settings panel. Here you can check the box “Insert closed captioning data from file” and navigate to the file on your hard drive. You can then assemble or insert as you normally do. If your project is HD, the VANC box in the Formats panel of your Kona Control Panel must be checked..
