Compress - Extend subtitles using Timeline control
Previous Next



Using the Timeline Control, you can edit subtitle positions, durations .....and more.
Also you can edit the total duration of selected subtitles to adjust timings of them, so if you got a subtitles format file that made for the movie you work on but the timings of the subtitles are longer or less than it should be....
So here where this feature comes, you can adjust subtitle timings using the mouse !!

  1. Select the desired subtitles, it's recommended that the subtitles you select are unique, e.g: select without CTRL.
  2. Move the mouse on the first selected subtitle, hold the left mouse button then move to adjust duration, release the button when done.
    The duration of the subtitles will change to fit the new duration of the new total subtitles duration while the end time of last selected subtitle will still the same.

    Example:
    before :
                mouse hold position
    |                   * [........................]         |
    0 Start                                             End Media duration

    after the set (the duration increased, this is Extend !!):
    mouse release position
    |    * [......................................]          |
    0 Start                                              End Media duration
  3. Move the mouse on the last selected subtitle, hold the left mouse button then move to adjust duration, release the button when done.
    The duration of the subtitles will change to fit the new duration of the new total subtitles duration while the start time of first selected subtitle will still the same.

    Example:
    before :
               mouse hold position
    |     [........................] *                   |
    0 Start                                           End Media duration

    after the set (the duration increased, this is Extend !!):
                    mouse release position
    |     [....................................]*        |
    0 Start                                           End Media duration
