SSA format not being read during conversion

Post by johnpickin »

Hi
I'm pretty new to this.
Have created ssa subtitle file which alters the subtitle colour for different speakers in the video. It works fine if associated outside the video in say VLC or VSO Player (eg using Video/Subtitle Track/Open file).
But if included in a conversion file ( have only tried to MKV Container), the output is the default colour of white for all the text. Not sure how to get Convertxtovideo to recognise the for formatting from the SSA file itself?
Thanks very much for any light you can shine on this.
Am using 2.0.0.100

Actually I've just solved it !
You need to create a custom profile and in step 4 (Subtitle tracks) click the Copy (remux) if possible box under Subtitle codec.
