Create Input Captions Selectors

When you set up captions, you begin by creating captions selectors. Captions selectors identify a particular captions asset on the input and associate a label with it. The captions asset is either a single language or the set of all languages contained in the input file, depending on your input captions format. For example, you might add Captions selector 1 and associate the French captions with it. When you set up an output to include captions, you do so by specifying captions selectors.

Follow these general steps to set up captions selectors. For information about how many captions selectors to create and for information about specifying values for any settings, read the topic specific to your input captions format. Choose the topic from the list of links that follows these steps.
