After processing your subtitle and FCPXML files in Subvert, your footage clips will transform into compound clips containing subtitles. With markers and keywords, you can read the transcript text right in your browser.
Subtitles come along with the clip and appear in the viewer. Show or hide all subtitles instantly by changing the visibility of their role in the timeline index window.
Since you're working with compound clips, you can edit the subtitles they contain to fix errors or adjust the text. The changes you make will propagate to all instances of that clip across all projects.
Break apart the compound clips (CMD-SHIFT-G) to reveal connected titles. Insert your b-roll between the title and the original footage to keep the subtitles visible without losing sync with the audio.
After your project is finished, export an FCPXML and bring that into Subvert. The app will detect the subtitles (or any title with a specified role) and create a properly timed subtitle file for final delivery from the edited project.
your transcript and subtitle workflow as you see fit.
Reads Multiple Formats
Subvert can import SRT, SBV, Avid DS, and regular transcript files in plain text and MS Word formats.
Add Markers and Keywords
Subtitles can be integrated into FCPX as markers and keyword ranges, allowing you to read transcripts straight in the browser and search for specific words inside lengthy dialogue.
Customize Subtitle Appearance
Change the font, size and style of the subtitle laid over your video. Optionally reformat line breaks to fit the width of the screen better.
Export Finished Subtitle Files
When you’re done editing, use Subvert to convert an FCPXML of your edited project back into a subtitle file. Then you’ll have instant subtitles for your finished video in YouTube or Apple Compressor without transcribing again.

Subvert is now at version 0.6 and has full conversion functionality both to and from FCPXML. With that, the app is entering pre-release beta testing as the final touches are added and bugs fixed. If you’d like to join the beta test and use the app for free during this phase, please contact support.
