    subtitles in Spanish done with title tool

    Hi guys. I am not a MARQUEE expert, so I would like to know if there are any tips to do subtitles (two lines in Spanish over English video) with the title tool. It is SO timeconsuming to do a copy paste from word and then have to be moving each two lines. OR any software that you guys can recommend? I have to subtitle about an hour video and it will take me a month if I have to copy paste / crop each two lines / place and position on screen. 


    Thank you!

    I guess you want to add subtitles to the TL in MC? If you want to add them in AvidDVD, you can first have a look to the tutorials Douglas has produced. They are in the second range of tutorials. number 115

    In MC, I would prefer to use AvidFX. Create a subtitle, long enough to hold the text readable. Once you have made your first subtitle, save this to the Bin and re-use it where (drag it to an upper video track) and when needed. You only have to re-type the subtitle.

    Take a look at the Autotitler in Marquee. It basically takes a text document containing your subtitles (each separated with a blank line) and applies it to a title template which you set up. It creates a separate title for each. Once created, use 'save all to bin' to save - er - to your bin.

    It takes a little while to figure out how best to lay out the text document to begin with, but once you've got the measure of it it can be very quick.
