I'm subtitling a video with an existing template in English.

I'm using Aegisub, and the client asks me to match up the subtitles to the very first frame in the video, which has burnt-in timecodes.

The first timecode is 00:59:58:00, and then it goes to 01:00:00:00, and from there onwards, so the "clock" for the burnt-in timecodes is set on 01:00:00:00 a couple of seconds after my timecodes.

I hope this is clear. Is there a way to start the clock for my subtitles a couple of seconds after the beginning of the video?
