Is it possible to automate the process of subtitling? For example if I have MS Word file with the following table:
|#||Starting Timecode||Ending Timecode||Language of Original||Local Language|
Is there any way to put that file on timeline in Premiere to superimpose subtitles with dialogues (for example) of Original Language? Can anyone give me step-by-step instruction on how to do that? I can edit text file in MS Word and delete unneeded column. Manual making of a few thousand titles is so boring!
As a result I have to export AVI file with superimposed subtitles on screen.
Thanx in advance to everybody!
There's no shortcut for this in PP, however there may be better methods depending on how you intend to use the subtitles. For example if they're used for broadcast, then Closed Captioning would be the better method. If they're used on DVD or Blu-ray, then a subtitle file added in Encore would be the way to go. But if you need the subtitles baked in, then...start typing.
I believe that using After Effects is a lot easier because you can change the source text with keyframes.
Take a look at this thread and watch the tutorial I did to demonstrate this.
