HOW TO BURN SUBTITLES INTO VIDEO: If you get you captions as a standard captions file (.srt, .ass, etc) then you can do it with ffmpeg, or one of the gui versions of ffmpeg. You can combine the compression to whatever output format you’re creating into the subtitle burning stage. So for example if you wanted to create a good quality mpeg4: ffmpeg -i input.mov -c:v libx264 -preset slow -profile:v main -crf 20 -pix_fmt yuv420p -vf “subtitles=yoursubtitles.srt” output.mp4. SUBRIP: Leave it as a separate SRT file, most TV’s now would just play ‘movie’ with a ‘movie.srt’ file in the same folder…Or as with vast number of mkv files, use
mkvtoolnix to merge in the srt file into the mkv file, you’ll still retain vid/audio/subs tracks, not burnt in.
SUBTITLE EDIT: is a free (open source) editor for video subtitles – a subtitle editor. Has OCR for corrections, edit/resync any subs. Export stl/scc formats ? if so,
then read it in and you can edit it like a text editor….then you can save it out as another bunch of other formats.
CHOCOLATEY Software Management Automation: A package manager like apt-get on linux or home-brew for mac. A script that will install it for you, and from then you can add tools like ffmpeg by just typing choco install ffmpeg. Unfortunately ffmpeg doesn’t seem to like .stl or .scc subtitles, but it’s pretty easy to translate stl to srt using a word-processor and find and replace (or sed / awk on the command line).
You need to find out what the actual Codec is. You can do this by finding an application that can query the MXF.
For example: http://www.opencubetech.com/page20/XFReader
Or if you know the camera it came from you can determine the format this way. If the files are from a camera that has a plugin for premiere then you should just be able to download the plugin from the camera vendors website.

SOME EDITING SYSTEMS OVER THE YEARS
STEENBECK > VIDEO TAPE > SHOTLISTER > HEAVYWORKS, LIGHTWORKS > FINAL CUT PRO > QUANTEL
Template-based edit decision list management systems. These days, linear video editing systems have been superseded by non-linear editing (NLE) systems which can output EDLs electronically to allow autoconform on an online editing system
Edit Decision Lists or EDL is used in the post-production process of film editing and video editing. The list contains an ordered list of reel and timecode data representing where each video clip can be obtained in order to conform the final cut. EDLs are created by offline editing systems, or can be paper documents constructed by hand such as shot logging.
Double-system recording is a form of sound recording used in motion picture production whereby the sound for a scene is recorded on a machine that is separate from the camera or picture-recording apparatus.
A flatbed editor is a type of machine used to edit film for a motion picture. Picture and sound rolls load onto separate motorized disks, called “plates.”
