"Burn In" External Subtitles in Rendered Video File

  • Hi Vouk

    I have a feature suggestion:


    The ability to "burn in" external .srt and .aas subtitles in the rendered video.


    Normally the .srt or .aas file must have the same name and be in the same folder as the video file to be viewed on the player.


    This feature permanently burns the subtitles in the video file and it is no longer necessary to have the .srt or .aas file in order to view the subtitles.


    In Premiere and Vegas this feature it can be used to burn the external caption directly in the timeline project during rendering.


    So far Handbrake is one of the only software I know of that can do that.


    I made a screen recording showing how this feature works. I also attached the file used in the test and also the .srt and .aas captions that were used.


    The download can be done at the link below:

  • To be honest, I know very little about command lines and programming. I understand only the basics. My brain almost got a knot just looking at all these codes. LOL


    If it is possible to implement this option, it will be very useful for those working with subtitle editing.

    There are 2 ways to hard burn subtitles, you can download simplex264Launcher and use it's included avs for simple subs, or download ffmpeg, use it's filter_complex renderrer for professional subs (like multiple fonts, super/subscripts and math alphabets)
