exporting subtitles from Sony Vegas
on Oct 28, 2014 at 4:47:40 pm

I wonder if you can help me...

I have a foreign language docu Im editing in Vegas, but am now switching to FCPX to edit in.

I have already tried to export the project files to FCPXML...With no luck. So Ive given up on that. I plan to just recreate the project in FCP by importing the original footage.

There are, however, a great deal of subtitles, and I'm loath to create these in FCPX again, which will take days...

Anyone know of a workaround I could possibly use to copy the subs from vegas to a program and then import in FCPX?

Many thanks,

[james henson] "I have already tried to export the project files to FCPXML...With no luck."

Yes, I hear that's useless. Very strange. Maybe export an EDL or regular XML and try going through Resolve to FCP X?

I guessing even with a functioning FCPXML it wouldn't translate correctly. I'd simply export the subtitles from Vegas with alpha and superimpose them in FCP?

Thanks for the reply, and sorry in not very savvy when it comes to exporting/ importing, what is alpha, and how would I go about this?

cheers

I unfortunately know nothing about Vegas (or Windows), so I'd have to leave that explanation up to someone else, sorry.

Same as Robin I don't know anything about Vegas.

The Vegas manual suggests the following.


The .srt file can be used with my X-Title Importer to get the subtitles into FCP X.

Ooh... it does .srt files? Well, then forget what I said about the alphas and follow Andreas' suggestion. Much easier and faster.
