      It’s certainly planned, but unfortunately we have a large bunch of other things with higher priority first.
      If someone else can write some motion tracking code we can use, it can however speed things a lot. (A requirement would be that the motion tracking is of course Free, but also that it’s not integrated with Aegisub as delivered!)

    • Character counter

      My mom is taking a translation class, where she needs to follow rules o how many characters per second she can put in the screen to make her assignments, and can't use aegisub because the lack of this feature. She is then forced to use Subtitle Workshop (can you fell the pain?!?).

      Usualy there is plenity of space to put it above the text area, besides time and formatation, on the right. The number of characters (with blank-spaces and punctuation) could fit very well there. This should be trivial to implement (I guess), and would let many people be blessed…

      • Have the color dropper average an area

        The color dropper in the Color Picker dialog box can only pick the color of a single pixel off the screen, but if you need to match a big surface on a video you often need to rather pick the average of an area to counter noise.

        It should be possible to pick the average of a small area like 3x3 or 5x5 instead of only a single pixel.

        • MKV attachments

          It would be useful if Aegisub could read fonts from MKV's, and conversely use the fonts collector to export fonts to an MKV.

          • Make Aegisub play video correctly

            I'm tired of hearing "Aegisub is not a video player"

            Well it's part of the program! Sometimes you NEED to play the video to time correctly. Stop putting the same crappy player in Aegisub, and put something that can play the video correctly without the lag.

              As we by 2.1.8 require audio to be loaded for anything to be played, video playback should generally be more reliable. We know it can be annoying to many, but it’s really the lesser of two evils. We would like to hear more feedback on this, however.

            • Add a grid on the video window to make typesetting easier

              Add the possibility to show a grid on the video window. That would improve a lot your precision while typesetting certain things.
              Shouldn't be too hard to implement right?

                • Quality Checking mode

                  It was really useful to have one feature like this.

                  There would be an option somewhere on "Subtitles" called by "Quality Check” mode.

                  To illustrate the idea, I did this on Photoshop: http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/5653/aegisubqc.jpg

                  Features:
                  - When using this mode, the main text area will load the “Original” subtitles. If the text got modified, it will apply the modifications to the “Revised” box.
                  - Possibility to add a comment to the revision using the “Comments” box.
                  - Possibility to add timelines to report external problems (like video-audio sync, typesetting, etc.) or add non-translated lines. The added timelines would be saved with…

                  • Line deletion hotkey - Translation Assistant.

                    It would be very useful to have a hotkey to delete a line in the translation assistant, because as a TL, I have noticed that one must close the translation assistant to delete a line. Identically, hotkeys could be added in the style assistant.

                    Thanks a lot.

                        While the appeal is obvious, unfortunately it would require completely rewriting the entire program, which is not very feasible. Android requires software to be written in the Java programming language, while Aegisub is written in C++, and it isn’t possible to simply translate.
                        On the other hand, an iOS application might have some feasibility.

                      • Internal Lua-Editor

                        An Editor for Lua-Scripts as a tool in Aegisub could be very useful to save changes/write new makros faster and create karaoke with an overview over the k-time and raw.

                        • Change default style aegisub

                          I would suggest to change the default font and size of Aegisub to one like the SRT subs. Something like: Style: Default,Arial,33,&H00FFFFFF,&H000000FF,&H14000000,&H80000000,-1,0,0,0,100,100,0,0,1,2,3,2,20,20,20,1
                          The first reason is to make easier to edit an SRT on aegisub, because you can open the video to see a preview of the subtitle and that will be with good aspect. And after the changes of the lines without touching the styles, the sub will be saved on SRT. The second reason it’s because if someone will convert one complete series of SRT’s into ASS, he will spend more time on changing the style of all…

                            Just like the right-click menu "Insert (before)" and "Insert (after)", it would be nice to have "Paste (before)" and "Paste (after)".

                            • Add an image-editor-like text tool for typesetting

                              Basically you'd have a text tool in the typesetting toolbar, you click it, then you click somewhere to create a new text (sign/line) there, that you can then edit (font/size/color/etc/etc) in similar fashion that can be seen in image editors like Photoshop and so. Having this and also have it preview changes in realtime would make typesetting signs a lot faster, a lot easier, and overall much, much more comfortable.

                                    • Add option to turn off/on subtitles by style name

                                      I make subtitles for foreign serial. In some places I place some explanatory subtitles, word translations at the top of screen. When there are lots of such subtitles, they create mess. It would be good to have option to turn off subtitles by style name. With this option I will have ability to edit all comments, word translations, etc separately.
                                      This is ticket #1705 on devel.aegisub.org

                                        • Customized Font Gallery

                                          In Style Editor "Customized Font Gallery" are added would be very nice.
                                          If you are a gallery of your own choosing fonts, It would be nice and easy.
