4. Subbing using Advanced SubStation Alpha (part 2: fonts)

Fonts and colours that are reasonably good….

The font colours for the PrimaryColour fields are:

A:H00333300
B:H00990066
C:H00006666
D:H00336600
E:H00FF0033
F:H000066CC
G:H00660099
H:H009900CC

With SecondaryColour, OutlineColour, BackColour all being  H00FFFFCC  ->  I’m not sure why these colours automatically seem to change colour a bit depending on the primary colour.

for the above texts, the font name was Serifa BT, Outline was 3 and Shadow was 0.   

For example: 

Style: Default,Serifa BT,22,&H00990066,&H00FFFFCC,&H00FFFFCC,&H00FFFFCC,-1,0,0,0,100,100,0,0.00,1,3,0,2,20,20,20,1

Thank you Susu for the following information.  ^___^

because of the colours, I experimented a bit and I found out, there’s a way to define them. I don’t have any idea what ‘H00′ is though, but ‘HFF’ made my subs invisible, transparent. so I think it’s kind of transparency? however, you know in html colors are always RGB (or however to say this >>) two numbers red, two numbers green, two numbers blue. this time it’s turned around. like H00BBGGRR.
thus
H00FF0000 -> blue
H0000FF00 -> green
H000000FF -> red

(you see, quite a simple experiment ^^; )

so if you go to photoshop or what, choose your color and you RGB is #33cc66 (a beautiful(?) green.) the you type in your subs H0066cc33 ^^

  1. Hi, I’m looking at your subtitle demonstration. I was wondering it’s possible to control the shadow and outline for specific lines, instead of every single one.

  2. muish you rock!! XD
