Have you ever needed to add subtitles to a QuickTime movie but haven't found the right tool? If so, then MovCaptioner can help.
The main problem with doing this kind of thing is that audio and images move too quickly for you to keep up with. MovCaptioner tries to help by repeating a segment of a video until you've got the subtitles right. Once you're satisfied with what you've typed, hit Enter and MovCaptioner will move onto the next clip. At the end of your subtitling session, you can export the entire text into one file, with or without the time code. This makes it ideal for importing into other video editing programs later.
An alternative way to subtitle is to type your script in a separate application and then import the text as captions. Unfortunately, MovCaptioner doesn't include major formats such as DOC and RTF, but it does import other formats such as SCC, STL, XML, SRT, QT Text, and SUB. This is sufficient to import SCC files into Final Cut Pro, for example. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with Quicktime X that's bundled with Snow Leopard however so those users will have to roll back to QuickTime 7 to use MovCaptioner.
MovCaptioner is a really easy and simple way to subtitle QuickTime files. It's just s shame it won't work with Quicktime X yet.
- Fixed a problem caused by the OSX 10.6.5 update that prevented SCC files from being imported into QuickTime
- SMIL formatted captions as well as Preview mode will now display captions either below the movie or in the bottom portion of the movie.
- SCC imports longer than 1 hour now come in with proper timecode
- Changing to 00HR and 01HR start times longer than 1 hour have been fixed
