    Hi Larry, I just bought your webinar on closed captions and it’s excellent!
    However I have one question concerning inserts and subtitles.

    For the english version of a bulgarian documentary film (.srt file via youtube) I need not only to show the english subtitles but sometimes also at the same in interview scenes for example inserts like name and profession of the protagonist. Or for example if there is dialogue during the opening title sequece: Is it possible to create two parallel subitles (one for the translation of the titles and one for the dislogue) when the output file will be an .srt file and therefore the subtitles will not be burned in? Thank you very much for a short advice 🙂 Best regards from, Sofia, Jan

      To the best of my knowledge, you can only have one active SRT file at a time. This means that you either need to integrate the IDs with the subtitles, or burn the IDs into the actual video itself.
