About Subtitles

Anatomy of a Subtitle

A subtitle is essentially a subpicture—a very small file used as an overlay on top of a video track or still image (Figure 10.1). Subtitles are stored in the Sources folder inside your Project folder.

Figure 10.1. A basic subtitle. In this chapter, the subtitles are large and garish to illustrate my point. Your project's subtitles will be nicer looking.


Each subtitle has three parts: fill, stroke, and antialias (Figure 10.2).

Figure 10.2. The three parts of a subtitle. The antialias segment is hard to see—it's the thin black line between the fill and the stroke.


Each of these parts can be assigned a color value and, in the Properties palette, you are also given some control over the outline width—the stroke—of the subtitles you use.
