Burn in Sub fails


I'm attempting to burn in sub on a video files but it keeps failing. I've attempted to encode the entire movie and using the internal srt that was in my mkv and all it did was change the srt to an ass file with no burn in.

Now for testing purposes I've been trying to do a 30 second preview of a portion of the movie I know has subs in it. If I use the internal srt file it will encode with an internal sub, no burn in. If I use an external srt file it doesn't burn in the subs either.

I'll attach two text files with my log info. The first is trying to burn in with the internal srt subs that are in the mkv and the second file is using the external srt sub file to try to burn in.

The first one seems to indicate that the burn-in did not happen, and it just passed through the existing subtitles. Was the burn-in box available for you to check on the internal subtitles? What did the subtitle screen look like.

As for the external ones, it looks like it did actually burn in. Though there may have been a problem with the offsets. HandBrake has had issues in the past with preview encodes and SRT files: it didn't always pick the correct time range out of the SRT to include with the video, it just started from the beginning. Have you tried encoding from the start of the video until some subtitles appear?
