Also compatible with OpenSesame Server for automated subtitling.

HOW TO USE:

  1. Create a new composition with the correct format for your output.
  2. Subtitles are created using the settings in the Character/Paragraph panels, so create a sample text layer first and change the font, size and alignment as required. For example, you may want the text alignment in the Paragraph panel set to "Center Text". You can then delete the text layer.
  3. Run the script, choose the subtitle format, then click Import Subtitles and select the file to import.
  4. To change the text size or style after import, select the imported text layer and change the settings in the Character/Paragraph panels as required. Then delete the subtitle layer and use the script to import it again.
  5. Drag the subtitle layer to the bottom of the comp, using the Title Safe comp guides if necessary.
  6. Then you have the option to:
    • Render the with an alpha channel, import into your editing software and put the subtitles onto your video.
    • Import the video into After Effects and place under the subtitle layer, then render the result.
    • With Premiere Pro you just need to save your AE project, then you can drag the subtitle comp from AE's project panel directly into Premiere Pro's project panel, and from there, into the edit.
