Using a Single Subtitle File
When you use the single file subtitle method, you specify a timecode for each subtitle’s
start and end, as well as the actual subtitle text. You can also embed commands that
affect how the text appears on the screen, such as the font, position, color mapping
settings, and fade in and fade out settings.
There are two disadvantages of the single file subtitle method:
• It requires your authoring system to have the correct fonts installed. This can be an
important issue when working with foreign languages that require special characters.
• The subtitle can only include text characters. However, you can manually import graphics
files to use in addition to the imported subtitle file.
