alphablending in subtitles

    Apr 03 2014 | 2:50 pm
    hi folks!
    i'm trying to mix a live video with subtitles. this works fine. now i want to have a smooth fade_in and fade_out for the subtitles. i thought i'd just control the alpha-channel of the font color. but this somehow only works for black, not for white and all the other colors.
    has anyone an idea how to solve this? what am i doing wrong? thank you very much in advance! maxi

      Interesting. Seems @blend alphablend for [] is broken. But you can still use @blend_mode 6 7. Works fine on my computer - check attached patch (is based on yours, a bit ordered).
