    Sub Cap - row spacing issue - any tips?

    My captions have inconsistent row spacing - seems dependent on how many 'tails' from the top row and if there are any caps in the bottom row.  If its yes to both then you get a big gap and a small gap if not:

     

    BIG

    SMALL

     

    It looks ugly as its inconsistent and the box size jumps between cuts.  Does anyone know a workaround? 

    Have had a good fiddle inc padding and 'row spacing' - they are just global adjustments though and the unpredictability in spacing continues. Happens without the box too.

     

    Cheers

    Just to be sure you should double-check row spacing. If you click on the Edit Global Properties button in the Effect Editor, then look at Box Appearance > Row Spacing and make sure it is set to Sequence if you want the spacing to be the same on all the SubCap effects in the sequence.

    FWIW, mine was set to Clip by default, which would account for the differences you're seeing if yours is the same.

    Re: Sub Cap - row spacing issue - any tips?

    Thanks Carl.  Reviewed that all and I'm afraid it didnt help.  I then loaded a known good preset I used for a 50 min HD prog, resized it down to this custom project size of 512 x212 and again it started behaving inconsistently - this time big gap between certain text and lower edge of box - dependent on text. 

     

    Frustrating but think I'm stuck with this as a feature in a non native project size.  Its fine in HD. Thanks for trying to help.

    Thanks M.  Just using the Arial font.

    I'm using this odd 512X288 project size as its videos for an app.

    These are my settings:

    Hi

    We are running on Macs and have come across the same problem, doesn’t matter what the global properties are.  Our presets as well as new ones behave the same way.

    Hi 

    Was this problem ever solved?

    Unfortunately it seems like I have the same issue.

    Thanks

    Re: Sub Cap - row spacing issue - any tips?

    Its far better in the current version - row spacing is much more consistent.  Caps or 'long tail' characters dont cause inconsistent row spacing.  Been a while coming mind ;)
