Hardcoding SUP subtitles from an anime Blu-Ray - overlapping timing

Hi there, I just purchased an anime box set on Blu-Ray and would like to create backup video files from them. Usually I use SupTitle in AviSynth for encoding, but it's not up to the task this time.

The Subtitle track has at least three less-common features in them:
-Fade-outs (which, I think, this will work fine if they're ignored by SupTitle)
-Tilted and carefully located subtitles, to line up with the image onscreen (no problem as an image, but it makes any OCR-based solution here undesirable)
-Overlapping timing. This is the really tricky one. SupTitle won't show them at all if I put them straight in. If I process them through BDSup2Sub first, it re-times all the subtitles so they're not overlapping, which isn't want I want at all. Some are gone in a fraction of a second, as soon as the next one shows up.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there any way to end up with a video file that has the hardcoded subs they way they're intended to look? I can upload a SUP file if that's helpful. Thanks!

Why not hardcode the PGS subtitles with HandBrake

If you are saving to MKV you can just use MKVMerge to flag them as default and forced
or as jmj said, just use the pgs subtitles

I've never used Handbrake before, I didn't realize that it had this ability baked in. Thanks, I'll give it a try and see if it handles the PGS better than SupTitle!
