Hello. Good morning, afternoon or evening.
I'll cut it short. I have .ass subtitle format (Contains customized fonts and was made by Aegisub) converted with vobsub to .srt file.
As the conversion was finished.. Came out a .srt.style which I have not encountered. If all due I would add the .srt into my video as Hardcoded.
It would seem to me that the customized fonts would become useless.. The format for the video I want is .avi (Xvid) so it would play on my DVD.
Is there a way for I to add the subtitle with out losing the customized fonts? (When I open the .srt with aegisub. It will come out with an error)
When I add the .ass to the video with avi recomp. It will not appear.
Any help is appreciated!

The .srt format normally does NOT support formatting, sizes, coioring, positioning, custom fonts, etc. There's an unofficial version of it that supports HTML-type formatting, but that may not be supported by whatever software you're using, and likely won't be supported by any set-top players. .srt is normally just plain text.
Note, though, that Aegisub is supposed to have the ability to output to .srt. Haven't tried it, though.
You can try hardsubbing using AVIDemux, though it didn't seem to support the fonts and effects as well as I thought it should. I normally use VirtualDub to hardsub .ass subtitles... but it can be a little difficult for newcomers. There's a page on Aegisub's site that explains how to do it (if I can find it, I'll post a link...)

Whenever I start to encode with VirtualDub.. It gives me this error.
~Check attached file~
I do know where should I go from here.
^EDIT 9:04PM PH TIME^
For the time being.. I will just create separate .ssa files. And re-encode the video 3 times to add the 3 separate fonts. It's better for the time being than dawdle around things that I don't have any knowledge with. But I am still expecting for a proper answer..

If your DVD player is divx capable it should be able to display XSubs. Load the .srt subtitle file into AviAddXSubs. You can use the settings in the program to duplicate as close as you can, the font and color info from the style file. The output file will have a .divx extension with selectable xsubs. If the subtitle colors look a muddy pink or distorted instead of your color, on AviAddXSubs Configuration 2 Tab you may have to check "YUV values at idx/sub color palette."
If your player cannot display XSub(which is unlikely since every player I had that played avi displayed XSub) as alternative you can output idx/sub, then use AviSynth VobSub() filter to "burn the subs in" to your video, or hard sub them.
To output an idx/sub pair instead of a .divx file, on Configuration 1 Tab, Sub 1 Tab, make sure the radio button is in Idx/Sub.
If AviAddXSub complains about the .srt input it's usually because it's Unicode. Load into Notepad and Save As ANSI. Then try again.
As far as I'm aware, AVIAddXSubs only allows .srt and VobSubs (.idx/.sub pairs) as (subtitle) input. (If it allowed .ass, that'd make my conversions for my DVD player a LOT easier. )
I can't say I know about the VirtualDub error - have you tried checking the settings for the codec installed on your system, as it suggests? Which codec is it?
In regard to exporting to .srt from Aegisub, here's what the site I linked above has to say about it: http://docs.aegisub.org/manual/FAQ#Does_Aegisub_allow_saving_to_SRT.3FIf cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
VirtualDub (I have VirtualDubMod) use.. I have tried to uninstall my Camtasia and removed the libraries. But the error still occurs. (Yes, I restarted after the uninstalling)
Should I try to re-install k-lite?
Thanks for the aegisub link.
I wish there was a simple program that allows me to add multiple (better) or single custom fonts into videos. Also supports .ssa, .ass and other subtitle formats.
For now.. I'm frustrated that I need to re-encode 3 times to add my 3 custom fonts.
SRT is a plain text subtitle format. The SRT file contains ASCII text with no font information. The render decides what font to use when it draws them into the picture frame. If you want control over what fonts (along with colors, sizes, etc) are used you should use an image based font format like is used on DVDs -- like SUB/IDX.
Man.. Might as well stick to AviRecomp to add my custom fonts and sizes.. Which is a pain that I need to render 3 times to add 3 different fonts. Thanks for the heads up on the DVD though.
Much appreciated.. I hope it accepts positioning as well.
I will still wait for better answers.
MediaInfo or GSpot to determine what video codec was used to encode the video. You can also cut-and-paste the information from MediaInfo (in Tree Mode) or a screenshot of GSpot's window with the video loaded, if you prefer. Then, check that codec's settings if it's installed on your system (if you didn't uninstall it, while you were uninstalling/removing things), according to what VirtualDub suggested in the error message.If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
I encoded it with Xvid.. And yes.. I have Xvid.. But I do not know where to find the Xvid settings or such "Force YUY2"
Hello, everyone! (^_^)
Aegisub can, indeed, output subtitles to .SRT format. Here's how:
1) From the File menu, select Export Subtitiles...
2) From the drop-down list, choose you text encoding then click on Export...
3) From the drop-down list, choose SubRip (*.srt) then click on Save
That should do it.
~I will try to encode .ass or .ssa subs into the video using Vdub. I will reply back soon whenever I can render something~
