Dear community,

I tried to export my project to xml file including subtitles, but the subtitles were not exported.

The project I tried to export is like this. When I exported to xml file and reimport with the new empty vegas project, it seems like below.

I cannot see the subtitles, and the position of subtitle track is changed.

Any other ways to solve the problem?

XML export is meant for the use of very simple Vegas Pro projects in other NLEs. But your subtitles are Generated Media which could be read only by Vegas Pro itself. They cannot be used for XML exports.

Thank you for your answer!

However, I think my previous question was a bit unclear and I would like to provide with some extra information.

We are creating a simple video editing software, and multiple users have requested a feature where they can import project exported from our tool. Our tool focuses on creating subtitles, so the subtitle information must be included when importing and exporting.

What would be the best action to handle this problem? Is there any way we can include both video and subtitle information inside an XML file readable in Vegas?

Thank you

The only way I'm aware of would be providing the subtitles as media files such as either graphic files with alpha channel like PNG or video files with alpha channel like uncompressed AVI.
