I have seen a few avi files where the subtitles are animated. How are these made? Can they be made with mencoder?

Animated in what way? Any example? – slhck May 12 '11 at 9:32
Like they might sparkle, light up, fall off or fall into place. – tony_sid May 12 '11 at 9:46

The answer is to use a program called aegisub to create .ass files, then use a program to hardcode the ass files into an avi file.
