Dear all,
Anyone with experience from working in Subtitle Edit and who knows if it's possible to burn the subtitles on to the video file? Or do I need to use another software for this?

Subtitle Edit, like Subtitle Workshop and others are subtitle EDITORS. Their end-product is a timed subtitles file in one of the 60+ file formats available.

Some options for burning subtitles on video are:
  • VirtualDub with Lee Avery's Subtitler plugin (my favorite) - burns SSA subtitle files on AVI only
  • Format Factory - many colleagues prefer it, I've never tried
  • Any Video Converter, aka AVC
  • Movavi
  • AVS Video Converter
  • DVD Flick - it actually doesn't burn the subtitles on the video, but authors a DVD with optionally overlaid subtitles.


Except Movavi, all are freeware; AVC has free and paid versions.

You can find A LOT of info on this by searching on http://www.videohelp.com

This article of mine - http://www.lamensdorf.com.br/subtitling.html - is intended for clients, and describes the entire subtitling process. Maybe you'll find some interesting details there, like the SSA vs. SRT comparison, as you can get both (and many others) from Subtitle Edit.
