Hello ogryzek,

Unfortunately tx3g subtitles editing is yet not supported by Video Splitter at the present time.
We will possibly add such support to Video Splitter's next releases.
If such support apear, we will post it at this topic.

Hi Olga

There are a few YT videos on basic features of Video Splitter that developer has posted, including at least one showing instructions on how to deal with additional streams embedded in video files.  However those guides are a bit misleading, or perhaps they don't fully explain software limitations.

Just like Ghred1147 noted, I have also noticed that Video Splitter does not handle text-based subtitle streams.

Here is a sample video info from ffmpeg:



Notice that it consists of 3 streams.

However when the same file is opened in Video Splitter (ver 8.0.2401.22 as of this writing) , here's what I see:



Notice that it shows only 2 streams, with subtitles stream missing.  When the edited media is saved, the subtitle stream is not preserved.

This is a rather BIG DEAL as the user is not notified in any way that some content won't be loaded for editing, and hence will be gone from the output.  Even more surprising is the fact that even free editors can load and preserve and/or cut tx3g text-based subtitles.  This is a major shortcoming (a bug perhaps?) of Video Splitter, and I am not surprised that Ghred1147 was so adamant about it.  Although I wouldn't go as far as colling it useless...

Hello Ghred1147,

The editing MKV file with subtitles is like the editing of any video file in Video Splitter.
You can see how to edit files here:

If there will be any questions after this video, please contact us at support(at)solveigmm.com and I'll send you the detailed instruction on how to do this.

I searched and searched to find a video editor that provides frame-by-frame cutting of MKV or other video files that contain text-based subtitles (srt/ass,etc). I was assured by Solveig advertising that this (non-avi) Video Splitter would do just that.

However, I can find no documentation anywhere about how to do this. Please either explain that in your replies or direct me to someplace I can find that info. If this can only be done with files that contain permanent, embedded subtitles, this application is utter garbage! I have at least a dozen apps that will do that already, including quite a few open-source/freeware tools!

If your tool doesn't do this with MKV files or the equivalent, I want my money back.

Thanks
