VirtualDub - Add subtitles in a DivX file

  • Open VirtualDub
  • Load your film
  • Audio> Direct stream copy
  • Video>> Filters> Add
  • Select "Subtitler" in the left and click OK.
  • Click on the button (with the points) right of the window.
  • Select the SSA files
  • Click OK
  • Video>> Compression
  • Choose the desired codec (normally the same as the movie).
  • It is better to encode in 2 passes. Indeed, in 1 pass, the encoding will be done in CBR (Constant Bit Rate), the fast and slow sequences are encoded with the same amount of information per second. The 2-pass will be made in VBR (Variable Bit Rate), ie the rapid sequence will be encoded with a high bit rate whereas the slow sequences with bit rates will be lower.
  • Click the button "Configure". In the new window, choose "2 pass - first pass".
  • Click OK and then OK
  • File>> Save as AVI, give a different name and let the process unfold.
  • When the first pass and finished, you get a file containing some informations about the bitrate.
  • Video> Compression>> Sets
  • Choose 2 pass - second pass and start a new backup under another name.
  • This second result is the AVI movie subtitles
