Again we have an editor that completely ignores subtitles. Every solution I have tried is miserable - some I paid for - some free.


We release films in digital QT downloads, on DVD, streaming etc. So we are back to hard-coding text in FCPX.


In FCP7 we used a subtitle program that exported xml which then imported to the timeline - havent found a good solution for FCPX yet.


So we started hard-coding in FCPX but in a fulll length documentary its bringing FCPX to its knees. I just tested using lower thirds text and after 5 minutes FCPX is lagging really bad. And I am on a retina top spec MacBook, 16GRam and thunderbolt drives.


This is not good. Surely someone has a subtitles solution in FCPX after all this time?
