    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Subtitles File Reader adds engine support for professional subtitle and captioning file formats. This plugin lets you read .vtt or .srt files and use timestamped captions in your UMG widgets or VR Views. The plugin comes with a simple-to-use object that provides time scrolling functionality with a simple BP exposed event containing the subtitles for the current time. Useful for video players, cinematic sequences, narrative events and virtual production.

Note: This plugin is not compatible with the in-built Subtitles and Dialogue system (see our Subtitles UMG plugin for that use case) but can be used concurrently. The Subtitle File Reader does not broadcast to the in-built Subtitles system.

Supported file formats: SRT, VTT (no metadata tag support)
