Convert subtitle file to AVI

Is there a way to directly convert sub or sup files to AVI? I mean a video file that has the subtitles and a transparency channel?

The goal is to later load this subtitle video into premiere and link it to the original video. When the original video is edited, the subtitles are edited and moved correctly.

Hi!

It's been MANY years since I've dealt with .AVIs, but if I remember correctly, I believe you can accomp0lish this by using VirtualDub...

@Atlantis

Just curious to know if you resolved your problem and whether the use of VirtualDub was any part of your solution...

There is an avisynth filter/plugin which loads subtitles and overlays them over some clip. Alternatively, there's Virtualdub plugins like Vobsub which do the same thing.

So you could use Avisynth to create a video using BlankClip function (see examples and description here: http://avisynth.nl/index.php/BlankClip ) and then use a subtitle plugin/filter to overlay the subtitle on that clip. Then load the avisynth script in whatever application you want (virtualdub for example) and compress the video using some lossless codec (lagarith, magicyuv, etc) and you have an .avi file with subtitles.

But anyway... after editing, you're still going to have to do the reverse, right? Are you going to do OCR on the edited subtitle to get your new subtitle? It would make more sense to use some code instead of actual subtitle text (like subtitle line number or something like a barcode or something you could feed to a small script and process the new subtitle automatically).. you have various functions in Avisynth which would allow you to do that.
