    Can Premier Elements Import Subtitle files?

    XMind

      Can Premier Elements Import Subtitle files in one of the following formats (DFXP, SBV, SRT, SSI, TXT, VTT)?

       

      Thank you,

          No. Premiere Elements does not support subtitles. If you want subtitles you can workaround it by having two versions of your video, one with text added to the video track and one without - but you wouldn't be able to toggle between them during playback.

            As Neale points out, PrE does not handle real Sub-titles.

             

            For that, one would need a full-featured authoring application, such as Adobe Encore CS 6. I do not even know if Sony's DVD Architect can handle Sub-titles, but perhaps their "pro" version can?

             

            Many other authoring programs, that can work with various Sub-title formats, like Sonic's Scenarist, are no longer in production.

             

            Good luck,

              It doesn't.
