I actually posted this question for a friend of mine, so I'll have to wait and see what he has to say. But nevertheless, thank you for a quick reply - I knew I could count on you when it comes to subtitling!icon_smile.gif

You need an application Nov 24, 2011

Hi there!

You would need an application / converter which can output the subtitles in XML for DCP format. It is totally different from FCP XML. I am afraid there's no other way to do it.

You can theoretically do it manually. But it's gonna take forever and even a slightest mistake would ruin the work.

Please send me an email if you need help / additional info.
