Problem with filters for subtitles on Avidemux 2.7
« on: July 20, 2018, 03:42:04 PM »
I have installed Avidemux 2.7.0 on Linux Mint 18.1 Mate. The problem is that on filter for subtitles i have not option for color and position of subtitles.
These options i know that have the Avidemux. What is the matter if anybody know? I am sending the screenshot.

I have installed Avidemux 2.7.0 on Linux Mint 18.1 Mate.

2.7.0 is very old, please either build yourself from the current git master (preferable) or use the latest appImage. At worst, resort to the latest release (2.7.1).

You do can set the top and bottom margin. What concerns the color, I can't rule out that Avidemux 2.5 had such an option in the GUI of the subtitle plugin, but it is not present in 2.6 and later. You should use a subtitle editor like Aegisub or just a text editor to specify the colors manually (have a look at lines starting with "Style:" in the sample .ass file attached by Jan in https://avidemux.org/smif/index.php/topic,18402.msg84498.html#msg84498).

I have no idea whether 2.5.6 still compiles. It is a legacy, obsolete application, incompatible with modern video codecs. Use Aegisub to set the colors in the .ass file to your liking if you don't feel comfortable with a text editor for this purpose.
