Hi.

 

The FLVPlaybackCaptioning component supports the .xml format for subtitles. Example:

<tt xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2006/04/ttaf1" xmlns:tts="http://www.w3.org/2006/04/ttaf1#styling" xml:lang="en">

The basic steps for using captions in AS3 documents are:

- Add an instance of the FLVPlaybackComponent;

- Give this component an instance name. E.g.: video0;

- Add an instance of the FLVPlaybackCaptioning component;

- Select the instance of the FLVPlaybackCaptioning component;

- Open up Window > Component Parameters;

- Go to the captionTargetName field and type the name of your FLVPlayback component instance;

- In the source field, type the path to your captions file. E.g.: captions.xml;

- Test your movie by going to Control > Test (Ctrl/Cmd + Enter).

 

To export the video with the subtitles:

- Simply use the exported SWF;

- If you want a video, this will be trickier in the latest release of Animate (version 20). Because in this release it's not possible anymore to export content with AS3 to video. You can alternatively install a previous release and go to File > Export > Export Video..., choose After Time Elapsed, and then type the duration of your video;

- Another possibility is to use a third party software, like Swivel, and export your SWF to a video format.

Animate does not natively support subtitles. Most video codecs do not support subtitles. If you want subtitles for a video, there are third-party tools for making them.

I downloaded the caption file from Rev and imported it into a new ActionScript 3.0 document using the FLVPlaybackCaption component. However, now I'm not sure how to export them.
