Req: Export blank video

Unread postby ZippyDSMlee » Sun May 29, 2016 6:00 pm

This is almost so simple its dumb, but it would be nice to output the subs either in or with a separate blank video. The reason as newer video editors come out most support layering and some support blending. It would be nice to toss it in a layered timeline hit a blend option to null the black/color on it and have the subtitle shine through so I can do my edits with the karaoke more efficiently.

Works with rain and other effects so why not subs? Oh well just a thought.

All current versions of VSFilter.dll have an AviSynth function called MaskSub which will produce a 32 bit RGB+Alpha clip of the subtitles on transparent background, at any resolution and framerate you want. The main challenge is then finding a tool and codec that will let you encode that to a functioning file with alpha channel intact.
Do not PM me asking for help with Aegisub, Automation, karaoke or anything like that, I won't reply.
