Premiere Pro can't do subtitles in the same way that Encore does them. In Premiere Pro, they're just titles.
You can export out a Premiere Pro title, but I don't believe Encore will see that as a properly formatted "subtitle".
Thanks for the quick answer. I was afraid that might be the case but was hoping there was a way to export the isolated (sub)title video track with simple timing and title data.
If anyone else has a suggestion I'd love to hear it.

That is correct.
See here (particularly re image scripts since you want to keep effects):
The point to subtitles is that they are not burned into the movie; the DVD player turns them on and off.
You'd be better off building them in Photoshop then Premiere.
Use Premiere to develop the timing if audio is critical.
Thanks Stan, and Jim.
I wasn't totally clear but I don't need the titling effects (drop shadow, outline etc.) to be retained with the Encore-generated subtitles. But when I screen my film on a big screen (at a cinema), even if it is off of a Blu-ray or hard drive, I'd rather project a version with "burned in subtitles" as DVD/BD subtitles look so ugly and unfilmic.
So I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and do them in Premiere and then import them into Encore. If Encore woud let me audio scrub frame by frame to the precise start/end of lines then I would've done them there and gone the other way and exported them into Premiere.
If you want the subtitles burned in, then they're really just 'titles'. You can go ahead and export out of PP as normal.
