Basic Knowledges of Subtitles
Basic Knowledges of Subtitles – – SRT,
Subtitle plays an important role in a video and movie during video enjoyment. It can not only help
viewers to understand content better, but also make video enjoyment accessible to deaf or hard
of hearing people. However, you may find there is no embedded subtitles in a video/movie, which
will cause misunderstanding or annoyance. So how to add or create subtitles by yourself? The most
popular and ordinary subtitle files are SRT, SSA and ASS. Today we will show you the introduction
of these three subtitles and how to add these three kinds of subtitles to your video.
Part 1. What is the SRT, SSA and ASS?
What is a SRT file?
SRT, or SubRip text, is the most basic and simple format for subtitles which is widely used for videos.
Usually, an SRT file mainly contains the number of the subtitle in the sequence, the start and end
times of when the subtitle appears, the subtitle content and a blank line to indicate the start of
next subtitle. SRT does not include any video data. It is just a text file which allows you to create or
edit by using any text editor at will.
What is a SSA file?
The .ssa file extension is commonly associated with Sub Station Alpha freeware application which
is specialize in creating SSA subtitles for video files. It allows you to add more special display effects
such as positioning, karaoke and style managements than the conventional SRT and similar
subtitles. SSA subtitles are saved in text format but complex than SRT.
What is an ASS file?
ASS stands for Advanced SubStation Alpha, which include all the features of SSA and expand more
effects on the basis of SSA. These ASS subtitles are also created by SubStation Alpha software
program. The ASS subtitles allows for formatting and styling of subtitle text and is popular among
Anime and Karaoke projects.
