    Hey!

    I want to encode a movie with the subs "on it".
    To do this i'm using the TextSub script in my .avs file like this:

    Code:
    AviSource("D:\movie.avi")
    TextSub("D:\subs.srt")
    The problem is that after the program finishes encoding, the subs are not big enough.
    is there any script that can enlarge the subs? How can I do it through a script in my .avs file?

    Thanks anyway.

    I also convert to SSA as it allows much more control over the look and positioning of the subs.

    I usually use Subtitle Workshop to do this.

    Then I use TextSub to "burn 'em in" to the video.

    Only problem is if the video is 16x9 anamorphic widescreen the subs can look short and fat when it gets "stretched out" so if that is the case try to pick a font that is tall and slender ... then it will look more "normal" afterwards LOL
