Thread: Second (and last) dumb newbie question... Subtitles!

  1. #1

    Default Second (and last) dumb newbie question... Subtitles!

    OK. So someone answered my first newbie question right away, and I encountered another one shortly there after.

    I'm trying to get subtitles in the video. I tried searching Google, Youtube and the Sony Vegas Pro help section and I'm still a little confused.
    "
    In SVP, it said to use the "Insert --> Command" section. I tried that, but it didn't work (or I did it wrong)

    Basically, my video has someone speaking in Spanish, and I need the subtitles to appear as he is talking.

    There are multiple scenes where I need to do this.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks....

    The subtitles you've been looking at probably apply to DVD Architect, where you want different subtitles for different lanuages.

    Here you just want a simple text overlay where the audio is Spanish.

    Open a video track above your video. Create a selection (click and drag over the area where you want a subtitle to appear). Right click in this area abd select "Insert Generated Text". Create your text in the dialog that appears, size and position to fit. (see the interactive tutorial for adding titles)

    OK. The options I have when I right click are "Insert generated media" and "insert text media"

    are either of these right?

    Apologies for mixing the two. In fact either will get you there - Generated Text is a type of Generated Media (Insert Generated Media | Sony Text)

    But why ddn't you simply try? Subtitles are text, right? "Generated Text" might have been the clue

    I'll recommend again you run through the interactive tutorial (Under Help) on adding titles ("How to add a title" - and, indeed the rest of them. This is a very good way of getting a basic understanding of some of the basics.
