    Hi all,

    OS - Ubuntu 12.04 desktop

    I'm a beginner in video editing. I'm prepared adding text on the video of .mpg format taken with Sony Digital Camera. I have no problem to convert them to other formats such as mp4 wkd etc.

    gnome-subtitle is available for install. I'm now looking for its tutorial and found;

    GNOME Subtitles
    http://en.flossmanuals.net/video-subtitling/ch022_gnome-subtitles/

    Which of them will be suitable for me to follow. Is there any other suggestion? Thanks

    Regards

    You are only creating the subtitles with that software(As a separate srt/etc text file).

    If you want to burn in/hardcode the subtitles in the video you must also use a converter like for example avidemux or ffmpeg. You add the video and the srt subtile file.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your advice.

    I already found several of them such as;

    to fade in and out professional-looking text?

    etc.


    But I need to learn creating subtitle first. Where shall I start?

    I'm also interested learning how to add running banner with text scrolling on videa. I have been searching a while and didn't find link in this respect. Could you please shed me some light?

    Thanks
