Aegisub
Create and edit subtitles for your videos

Aegisub is an extremely powerful tool for creating and editing video subtitles.

The program gives you an enormous amount of control. The Style Editor, for example, allows you to choose your text font, size, style, colours, scale, rotation, spacing, encoding, margin and alignment. (That can be just as complex as it sounds, but fortunately a Preview window instantly displays the results of any changes.)

There are just as many options to assist with your subtitle timing. Instead of being left to guess, waveform and spectrum analyzer modes help to place your subtitles with absolute precision. Again, this looks horribly complicated at first, but once you've learned the basics it's surprisingly straightforward. The developers suggest that, "with some training", timing 350-400 lines of dialog to a 25 minute clip can be done in less than 40 minutes, and we think they're probably right.

Aegisub includes a host of supporting functions to help you through the process: a spell checker, translation assistant, colour picker, visual timing tools, and more. You even get built-in Lua scripting, for extreme configurability.

There's support for importing just about every video type, of course. And your finished work may be exported in all the usual formats: SRT, SUB, ASS/ SSA, STL, ENCORE.TXT, TTXT, TRANSTATION.TXT, or just TXT).

Version 3.2.2:
    •Update Spanish, Ukrainian, Hungarian and Finnish translations
    •Skip writing the Aegisub project stuff when exporting to ASS
    •Fix some ugliness in the OS X icon
    •Update the selection and scroll position after opening subtitles from video
    •Fix crash on a certain kind of malformed shift times history file
    •Don't set the YCbCr header field to "None" when resampling resolution without changing colors

Verdict:

Aegisub isn't for beginners, at all: you can't just type in some text, have it appear in a video, and save the encoded results. (Not without a little work, anyway.) But if you need to create plenty of professional quality subtitles on a regular basis, and are willing to spending time learning its many features, Aegisub will prove an excellent choice.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
