Displaying OPEN captions in rendered output???

Hi all,

I'm kind of banging my head against the wall with trying to figure out how to display OPEN captions in my rendered output.

I can handle getting the captioning text into vegas and on the time line.
I can get it to appear in the preview window when I select the overlay for the Closed Caption 1 channel.

But what I want to do to is display the CC text as Open Captioned, basically in a burn in window for lack of a better term.

For 508c compliancy we have to post an open captioned version to the web.

Can anyone figure out how to make the caption info visible when I render out?

I would use standard titles for that.

okay, thanks.

It just seems like there would be a better way since I can see everything in the preview window.

I realize encoding performs a lot of magic behind the scenes, but it's all right there.
I was hoping for a switch setting or something :-(

Reid, I'm in the same boat with 508. I can get CC on the dvd, but not for the web. Bob

Is this really true?

I think there's a workflow where:
We encode a wmv with closed cap.
We play it back with a silverlight player that is cross-platform and cross-browser, and presents a "CC" button.

I've not really tested this out, but I see all the features in Vegas and Silverlight to do it... Been doing a lot of SL work recently, it really is a slick distribution method for web video.

Worst case, a script should be able to change your command markers from the closed caption type to the wmv caption type.

Section 508 does NOT require open captions. It's your choice, open or closed. Many prefer to let the viewer turn them on. See Video and Multimedia Products (1194.24).
