Did you hear that there’s DaVinci Resolve 18 just around teh corner? Well it is!
While there are some cool features being added I first wanted to look what is being done with the subtitle functionality.
There is a lot of new support when it comes to TTML, which is fine but that’s mostly for streaming and TV production.
So what is there for those that aren’t into TV production?
Well they introduced subtitle regions within subtitle tracks. So we can now have 4 subtitles per subtitle track, however you have to note that this will only work if you burn the subtitles into the video. You of course can export those 4 subtitle regions as a TTML file, but if you export it as say an SRT subtitle file, then only the original subtitle will be exported without the 3 additional regions that you have in the subtitle track.
Still, you now don’t need to stack timelines to display up to subtitles and with each stacked timeline you will be able to display up to 4 additional subtitles – previsouly in DaVinci Resolve 17 each subtitle had to be on its own timeline.
Until next time Jackalls, Keep it Digital
