I have an MXF file. I'm trying to output as two video files: .mov and .mp4. I also have a .SCC file that has the subtitles that I'm trying to use.

 

When I go into Media Encoder and drop the .scc file, it adds it as a new source instead of adding it to both video files. How can I use Media Encoder to add the .scc file to both the .mov and .mp4 files?

You have to use Premiere Pro to add a subtitles track to a video or you can use FFMPEG to embed subtitles directly in your file. I've only done this with SRTs into MP4s, so I can't confirm what other formats work, but this is the FFMPEG command (assuming you have ffmpeg installed as a command line tool): 

ffmpeg -i infile.mp4 -i infile.srt -c copy -c:s mov_text outfile.mp4

 

More information where I originally found this command at this Stack Overflow thread.
