Scenario 1:

I update my computer to windows 10, found I can’t install Movie Maker. WHY? I searched on the windows official website, found it said “you’ll need to download the installer for Windows Essentials 2012, Windows Essentials 2012 suite reached end of support on January 10, 2017". So I miss the due date and can’t install it any more.

Scenario 2:

If the video time is too long, I will take a long time to edit these subtitles step by step. If I want to add a complete subtitles to the video, how to do?

-Visible to any video resolutions (font size will perfectly match even with the lowest video resolution)

-Can be played by most of video players, it can be played at “TV” too


-Has so many fancy styles (like karaoke, font color, font size, font type, can put the text everywhere at the video, no limitation for “one line” max characters, can use Kanji font)

-Depend on video resolution (u can choose your own font size, so if the video resolution is lower than script resolution, it would be bigger and annoying)

-Video players that can play ASS/SSA file are limited.
Point 3: You can clearly observe the effect. You can find any edit tool in the edit interface. Such as: add your subtitles, alter the video background color, audio replace, add video watermark, alter the text, do video cutting to decide the video length etc.
