To export a properly formatted TXT file of subcaps from Avid, you need an Avid DS Capture File.
- In the sequence, move the position indicator to any subcap and make sure the video track containing the effect is selected. Tip: If you use subcaps for non-vfx banners or slates, first sub-sequence the track that only contains shot ids.
- Open the Effect Editor.
- In the Caption Files parameter, click the Export Caption Data... checkbox.
- Double-check that the file format setting at the bottom is Avid DS Caption File (not EBU N19 Caption File).
- Navigate to your save location and click Save. Tip: Include "subcaps" in the name of the file to differentiate it from the TXT clips file.
