I finally uploaded the new version of X-Title Caption Export I announced two or three weeks ago.
It contains some bug fixes and some new features. The most obvious new one is the option to create html code for WebVTT use.
So it's easy to embed some subtitled movie into your personal website or to test code for Vimeo etc.
If you use Vimeo let me know how it works or if you need more enhancements.
There is a new help PDF available:

The app is available here:

88 caption per language role are free 😉

This finally allows to test WebVTT and CEA-608 to CEA-708 behaviour - latter if you replace the movie source in the html code.



Some further notes on the above.
Last weekend we discussed the behaviour of SCC/CEA subtitled movies in different players.
One player we tried was the standard Web5 player which works in all modern browsers.
While WebVTT should be CEA-708 compatible and CEA-708 was developed WebVTT in mind the results look very different from Desktop QT Player X and WebVTT.
There is a little project with CEA captions in FCP you can download and play with.

The webpage created with Caption Extract is

A future version of X-Title Caption Extract will have a better "bounding box control" - currently 10% horz, 5% vert fixed.

You can play with the project, QT Player X and Caption Export to get a clearer picture about digital players ;-)

I'd like to just make the point that if you're not using Andreas' extensive suite of tools as the mainstay of your captioning/subtitling needs, you're missing out on the best solutions available anywhere.

Literally no-one understands this stuff better than he does.
