View Full Version : [all variants] Two simultaneous subtitles

February 8th, 2010, 01:29 AM
I'm subtitling a movie. There is a place where a character and the TV are talking at the same time, and both speeches are important enough to translate. I'd like the character's dialogue to be at the bottom, and the TV at the top. But I don't know how to do it.

I have about half an hour of dialogue already translated, in SubRip format. I use Gnome Subtitles. I also tried using Subtitle Editor, but it crashes when I open the video.

If it is brief then add in w/ the title tool or even use a .PNG file set to transparent background

What NLE video editor are you using ?

Do you want the subtitles to always show or do you want them as optional ?

1) What's a title tool? How do I use a PNG file?
2) I'm not using any nonlinear editor. Should I be?
3) You mean, hard subs vs. soft? I guess I don't care. I just want subtitles to be available.
