Part 1. How to edit a video subtitle with Wondershare UniConverter (Win).
Step 1 Load your subtitled video file.
Download and load Wondershare UniConverter on your PC and then tap the Video Converter tab on the left pane. Next, click the Add Files button to open File Explorer or an optical disc and add your subtitled video. Alternatively, drag and drop the video file on the app. Also, note that Wondershare Subtitle Editor supports batch conversions. So, upload as many video clips as you want.
Step 2 Open the subtitle editor.
Now it's time to edit your subtitle or create a new one while paying attention to the timing. That’s because every subtitle has an end and start time. That aside, click the drop-down arrow named No Subtitle, and the Subtitle menu will open where you can do the following things:
No subtitle: Remove subtitle tracks from your video.
Keep all subtitle track (s): When you convert the video to MOV or MP4, the subtitle tracks will remain as they are and can be turned on or off.
Embed subtitle(s): You can find all your subtitles contains in your video, choose one to output and it will be printed on the video (can't be switched on/off when playing).
Export subtitle (s): Extract the subtitle tracks from the video and save them as ssa, srt, or ass files.
Add: You can also add subtitles to the video by clicking on this button.
Edit Subtitle: Licking this pencil-like button allows you to edit subtitle settings, add local subtitles, and download subtitles online.
Step 3 Edit subtitle text and timing.
Click the Embed subtitle(s) button and then tap the Edit Subtitle button/icon. This should immediately launch the subtitle editing window with your playing video. You will see a list of the included subtitles with their respective start and end times below the preview screen.
After that, select a specific subtitle, and you’ll see the text in the Subtitle text textbox in the top-right corner. Proceed to edit the subtitle or delete it if you want. If a specific timeframe doesn’t have a subtitle, select it and then type in your subtitle text.
Movie lovers can also set subtitle fonts like Arial, Arial Black, Calibri, Lato, Pristina, and more. You can also Underline, Bolden, and Italicize subtitle tracks. Further, this app allows you to adjust the subtitle text color, background color, outline width, transparency, and position. And above all, click the Apply All to effect the changes on all the subtitle tracks. To undo the settings, press the Reset button.
Step 4 Preview the video file (Optional).
Before converting and saving your video, it's wise to ensure that everything is clean and polished. To do that, hover the mouse cursor on top of the thumbnail, and you’ll see the Play icon. Click it to open the subtitled video using the multimedia player. Close the window if you’re satisfied.
Step 5 Export to MP4 or MOV files.
Navigate downwards to the Output Format menu and open it. Click the Video and then choose MP4 or MOV as the target format. Also, set the output resolution before clicking the File location menu to select a folder path or destination. Finally, hit the Start All and wait for the program to convert and save your new video with edited subtitle tracks. Enjoy!
Part 2. How to add a video subtitle with Wondershare UniConverter (Win).
Here's a simple handy guide for you to add subtitles to MP4, AVI, MKV, any video format as well as your digital/DVD movies, TV series and music videos. You can add .srt, .ass, .ssa and .sub subtitle files to the video and output as Hardcode Subtitle or Soft Subtitle as choice. Easy steps to extract subtitles from video to srt/ass/ssa files can also be found here.
Hardcodec Subtitle: The subtitle you added to the video, which can be image subtitle or text subtitle. Hardcode Subtitle can't be removed or turn on/off during the playback.
Soft Subtitle: The subtitle your video contains originally, which is usually a specially marked-up text with time stamps. So it can be turned on and off during the video playback.
Step 1 Get editing window.
If your video has no subtitle track, click the Video Editor tab on the left pane of Wondershare UniConverter. From the several editing tools available, click the Subtitle to open your local storage and add the video file. Your video should start playing automatically on the subtitle editor.
Step 2 Import subtitle files.
On the resulting window, you should see the following controls:
- Create Subtitles: Pressing this button allows you to enter your own subtitles with custom timeframes, fonts, colors, position, transparency, and size.
- Search Subtitles: If you have no idea where to begin your subtitle search, click this button to download thousands of subtitles for popular music and video files.
- Import Subtitles: For those with a locally saved subtitle, click the Import Subtitles button and then tap Add to import that subtitle on your video.
To enter custom subtitles, click the Create Subtitles, then enter the subtitle text inside the textbox at the top-right corner. Now proceed to enter the Start Time and End Time manually. Alternatively, use the up (˄) and down (˅) buttons to select a specific time for the subtitle. You’ll see the subtitle appear below the preview screen next to the Add and Delete icons. Click the Add to save the new subtitle and apply the next one. Repeat the process until you are satisfied. Don’t forget to customize your subtitle tracks to make them look more appealing, and then press the Apply All. Hit the OK to close the window.
Step 3 Convert videos with hardcodec subtitles embeded.
Click the Play icon on the video thumbnail to preview it. If you want to make adjustments, press the subtitle drop-down menu right below the video format and then tap the Edit Subtitle pencil-like icon.
Choose the MP4 or MOV format as output from the Output Format: drop-down list. Remember only MP4 and MOV video formats allow turning on and off any subtitles when watching on TV. Finally, click on the Start All button to save all changes and convert the video. If you have extracted subtitles, the subtitle files can be found by opening the folder-like icon under the Finished tab.
