    That looks good Anton. But sometimes my client shoots outside with a lot of white buildings, walls, etc. I like the extra thick black edge on TMPro. It's easier to read.

    Wish Handbrake could take A-S-S files. You can get more black in Aegisub. But once it's converted to SRT, it's no longer there.

    Maybe I can do the same in Vistitle when I try next week. Hoping I can burn-in right on the timeline.

    Douglas, thanks for the link. Might try that next time.

    Actually, I'm cheating somewhat. I'm really producing Open Captions. Instead of buying real Captioning software with the roll-up on black bars,etc, I usually use old TMPro on my Edius 5.51. I copy and paste from a text file that is given me. I use a heavy black edge in TMPro so it's easy to read. No complaints.

    Seems TMPro is faster in some ways for Open Captions.

    Johnny,
    Here is an older tutorial of mine showing how to use Boris RED with the files created by Aeigisub. This method "burns in" the captions (Open Captions) as opposed to "Closed Captions" which can be switched on or off.
    Even though I am showing it in Media Composer, it will also work in EDIUS.
    Of course if you have Vistitle and not Boris RED - then Vistitle is the obvious choice.

    Johnny,
    There are numerous caption formats listed under "Export" in Aegisub.
    I use different formats depending on how I am going the add the captions later.
    I don't use Handbrake, so maybe Anton can tell you what format he is using from Aegisub to Handbrake.

    By the way I meant that Aegisub is very good for quick and simple caption creating and timing. I maybe mislead you when I mentioned "basic"
    It is actually one of the more advanced FREE caption applications available.
    But you need to study and practice before you can use the many features.

    Regards
    Douglas

    Just tried Aegisub. Great program. I like the nice black shadow on the fonts. But when I went to Save As, it only gave me an .*** extension. *** didn't work in Handbrake. So I exported via Aegisub to SRT, bit I lost the nice drop shadow.

    It's been said SRT is very basic. Doesn't have the bells&whistles of .***.

    My next test will be with Vistitle.

    Haaaa, I got censored. .*** won't pass to forum. It means A, add S, add S.---- AASSSS extension

    If you have Vistitle in 5.51, and that version of Vistitle offers that feature, it should work. I can't remember what was available in the first release. Vistitle 1.6 definitely has it.

    So only Edius 7 and 8 has the subtitle editor? Can I import SRT files in my older 5.51 computer? I do have Vistitle.

    That's the box I was looking for. For some reason, yesterday, I couldn't see it. When I Booted up my computer this morning, it showed. So rebooting should be on my list for crazy actions not happening.

    If you have Vistitle you can edit the .srt file and export a clip with the title burned in all from within Edius.

    Aegisub is worth a look.
    If your captions are all "out" by the same amount, you can move them all together either backwards or forwards in time.
    Aegisub is one of those often overlooked applications that is extremely useful for all types of subtitle creation and manipulation.
    This video tutorial of mine can get you started, https://vimeo.com/150154210

    Alright, I found Handbrake takes SRT files. Nice. And I can adjust the offset. I set the offset to about a sec. sooner. The subtitles are right on.

    But, I needed a Burn-In. For some crazy reason if you bring in your own SRT file, the Burn option is not there. Good grief. So I found a software called Vidcoder that uses the Handbrake engine. It has the burn-in click box. Crazy, but it works great.

    So I"m going to tell the client in the future to just send the video file and the SRT file for his Open Captioning. This will help me buy more wine and beer.
