Once you have an understanding of .ass and how it works, understanding aegis will become much easier. Also there are many scripts online that can show you automation code examples and I have heard there are video tutorials on youtube you prob just have to search for "aegisub tutorial".

Please tell me in what way ass-quickref.txt is better than that page, so I can fix it.

cause I have never even looked at that page since I already know the tags . But yes that is prob a better list. I'm only partial to assref cause I learned off it so I understand it at glance. But I will admit that the old ref we hard to grasp for many at first.

the that page has updated tags/new tags that jfs included with his patches of VSfilter, if I remember correctly...which I somehow don't thing that the assref has? :

 2009-05-04, 16:48 Link #885 Kristen Senior Member Author     Join Date: Jul 2007 Location: Virginia Tech I use aegisub automation, not lua. In code lines on top, I defined the function stuff() to be a random number between 0 and 2pi Then in the actual automation line, I have the particles move from $smiddle+5*math.sin(stuff()),$scenter+5*math.sin(stuff()) to the same thin, just change 5 to 10. Loop this line about 60 times to get random particles in a circle, and then the effect I want is made. However, the stuff() function randomizes every time it is called. Is there a way to make it so the stuff() will stay the same for the entire line and change on each iteration? So that on loop=1 it'll be the same for the entire line, and then it'll change for loop=2, loop=3, etc. __________________
 2009-05-04, 17:06 Link #886 jfs Aegisub dev     Join Date: Sep 2004 Location: Stockholm, Sweden Age: 31 You'll need a memoising function for that... code once,whatever_vals = {}, function whatever() if not whatever_vals[line] then whatever_vals[orgline] = {}; end; if not whatever_vals[line][j] then whatever_vals[line][j] = math.random()*2*math.pi(); end; return whatever_vals[line][j]; end; How it works: First an empty table is created, outside the function definition so it stays around. Then the function first checks whether there is any sub-table indexed by the input line, so each input line gets its own set of values per iteration. Then those sub-tables per line are indexed by the iteration number. If there is no value for an iteration number, one is created. Then the function returns the stored value for the iteration on the line. I didn't test it, there might be errors. __________________ Aegisub developer [ Forum | Manual | Feature requests | Bug reports | IRC ] Don't ask for: More VSFilter changes (I won't), karaoke effects, help in PM's
 2009-05-04, 17:09 Link #887 TheFluff Excessively jovial fellow     Join Date: Dec 2005 Location: ISDB-T Age: 29 One way would be to declare a global variable with the random value you want and define a function that updates it when you so desire (maybe parametrize it on the input line number and keep another variable that keeps track on the line number). e: jfs already posted a similar solution, probably simpler and cleaner too __________________ | ffmpegsource 17:43:13 <~deculture> Also, TheFluff, you are so fucking slowpoke.jpg that people think we dropped the DVD's. 17:43:16 <~deculture> nice job, fag! 01:04:41 < Plorkyeran> it was annoying to typeset so it should be annoying to read
 2009-05-14, 07:10 Link #888 Deathcaster Junior Member   Join Date: Apr 2009 Location: Netherlands Okey so this may sound like a noob question but is it possible to load frame date from a MP3 audio file? (without video) If this question isn't clear enough i'll explain my situation here. I was asked to k-time a project for witch i got a audio file + translations, they also told me to scene time it. So thats when i thought that maybe the frame-data was in the audio file itself.
 2009-05-14, 08:33 Link #889 TheFluff Excessively jovial fellow     Join Date: Dec 2005 Location: ISDB-T Age: 29 why would audio files store video information (answer: there is no reason to do that, so they don't) if you have the video on the other hand you can export the keyframe data to a text file and load that in aegisub (both options are available under the video menu) or just keep the video loaded I guess __________________ | ffmpegsource 17:43:13 <~deculture> Also, TheFluff, you are so fucking slowpoke.jpg that people think we dropped the DVD's. 17:43:16 <~deculture> nice job, fag! 01:04:41 < Plorkyeran> it was annoying to typeset so it should be annoying to read

I figured out how to do basic karaoke thanks to this guide.
http://www.kasshin.net/karaoke_guide.swf

It just says the text as the lyrics is going in the video. But I want to make it like real fan subs groups. Where whenever each word is said, the word in japanese and english is "lit up" or "bolded" as the person is singing

Quote:
 example: regios at the start, you see this for "brave your truth, and brave yourself" BRAVE YOUR TRUTH, AND BRAVE YOURSELF The word "BRAVE" is bolded for the amout of time it takes to say "brave", then it goes to "YOUR" and so on and so on
How do I do thay? I got Virtiual Dub, SSA, and VobSub add-on

 2009-06-20, 20:13 Link #892 Starks I see what you did there! Scanlator     Join Date: Apr 2004 Age: 28 That guide is so outdated. Use Aegisub or if you want to be a masochist, Adobe After Effects. __________________ My list of garbage anime
 2009-06-20, 22:42 Link #893 haddad287 Junior Member   Join Date: Jun 2009 ohh really? It seemed though becuase I knew how to use Aegisub and I though you cant kareoke with Aegisub. Is there an updated guide? On how to kareoke with Aegisub? I know how to add subs with Aegisub, but can you add the kaeroke effects with Aegisub, if you can, how? Can you please tell me?
 2009-06-21, 05:50 Link #895 krazywrath Junior Member     Join Date: Oct 2008 Age: 25 Alright, well I'm trying to figure out how particles work. I read the guide so I can make the particles themselves! =D However, I'm not sure why the particles are not at the middle of the syllables. :\ Spoiler for code: Also, I made this separate from the other "template". Is this recommended? Or should I just merge them together? (because I don't know where to put the {\p1}stuff{\p0} part)

The pos should be set to \pos($middle,$center) and if offsets are needed beyond that just add them as needed using math functions.

Write it like this :

{\an2\pos($center,$middle)\alpha&HFF&\p2}m 0 0 b 10 0 10 15 0 15 b -10 15 -10 0 0 0

Though I can't understand why you have set the particles to totaly NOT visible (\alpha&HFF&). Maybe you have confused the way particles work. Use the template modifier "notext".Cause with your current code the letters AND the particles will be showing (well not since you set alpha at HFF...:P)

 2009-06-21, 11:59 Link #899 haddad287 Junior Member   Join Date: Jun 2009 I dont know where to start exactly, I went here and my "Apply karaoke template" is blanked out. And the Aegisub I am using is: Aegisub v2.6.1 RELEASE PREVIEW (SVN r2494 amz) is that the correct one? I re-instaled Aegisub and I still cant get the Apply karaoke template to work.
