exporting Subs as XML + PNGs
Thread poster: Kabelstapler

Sep 5, 2013

Hello Pro-Z Community,

i hope this fits in this forum, since its a more technical related question...
i just got a really weird task, which iam not sure how to perform:

- iam getting SRTs
- integrate them into FCPX (iam using TitleExchange for that - works good)

- now the client wants me to export an XML (not fcpxml) with PNGs for all the Subtitles.
- So it should be one PNG for each subtitle (regardless the length of the Sub) and one XML for defining the timing of the PNGs - so the subtitles are not the written text but the respective PNG.

how can i do this? Iam on OSX 10.8.4 and FCPX 10.0.9. Also we have the newest Version of Submerge, in case this is any help.

thank you for your help.

I've often been asked the same export Sep 5, 2013

and it works perfectly with my subtitling software. It's Annotation Edit for Mac. You may want to give it a try. I know there's a free trial version you can download from www.zeitanker.com. That should do the trick for you. Let me know if I can help you further.

Good luck!
