Subtitles in 3D movie

What are the rules for adding subtitles to a movie in 3D? For example: "depth", duration, interval between subtitles. Where can I read?

Finally there are no rules.

You have to decide and test yourself where the titles should appear in z-space.
This decision also depends on projection/screening (and dimensions of the movie)
Subtitles always disturb the picture, with 3D subtitles it's even worse.

I don't think it's worse. I think it's better. I think you'll see 2D movies with subtitles in 3D. you preserve the integrity if the picture and make them easier to read. Have you actually seen any? I have, and I love it.

That didn't mean it's not difficult to create them. I don't have any advice for you except to say that it's worth the effort for you to try to get this right.

I'll do subtitles for a movie trailer for Warner Bros representative. This is a problem because he did not know how to do this (I mean the z-depth).
Z-depth apparently somehow changed with the change of frame (close / wide).
The problem is how much.
