View topic - Hard Subtitler
I have assumed that with "not have to load the subtitle file seperately", that you meant during playback. I will divide the process into two parts.
Part 1: Actual subtitling
For this, I would suggest you use Aegisub . It's freeware, and I think it has sufficient functionality for most subtitling needs. With Aegisub you have an option to softsub, e.g. export your subtitles as a *.srt file and load during playback. I mainly use this for error checking before hardsubbing.
Part 2: Combining the subtitles with some footage
First off, you will need to install something like Avisynth . Apparently this allows you to load so called "filters" and other goodies to a video editing program - and your subtitles are among those creatures known as "filters". Uh, OK, that's perhaps not the most scientific explanation, but you can get that from their website.
The next step is to use a program like VirtualDub to permanently glue your prose in among the other pixels. Just make sure that you first copy the VSFilter.dll file from the "plugins" folder under the "Avisynth" folder to the "plugins" folder under the "Virtualdub" folder. Jeez, I hope this makes sense. Now rename the copied VSFilter.dll file to "VSFilter.vdf" because VirtualDub uses the .vdf extension for its plugins.
You can now open your video file in VirtualDub, and choose "Filters" from under the "Video" tab. Click the "Add" button. Select "Textsub" from the list box and click "OK". Locate the subtitle file you created with Aegisub earlier and click "OK". You can also choose which type of compression would be most appropriate from under the "Video" tab.
Almost done. All that is left to do is to process and save the generated file. Your newly created video file should now contain your subtitles (Barring dear ol' Murphy).
I hope that it enough to get you on your way.
