Allows you to Recut/Offset the subtitles during the export. From the drop-down menu you can choose between the following options:

None - doesn't recut or offset the subtitles and they will be exported with their original timing.

Manual - allows you manually specify the offset for the recut.

Auto - automatically offsets the timing using the first subtitle's In-cue. All timecodes are offset backward with the first subtitle's In-cue rounded down to the closes hour. For example if the first subtitle originally starts at 10:00:32:21 after applying the recut it's start time will become 00:00:32:21.

Programme Start TC - automatically subtracts the value of the Programme Start TimeCode metadata parameter if available in the input file. Note that this parameter is supported for EBU STL, EBU-TT, EZT or EZTXML file formats only.

Video Start TC - automatically gets video's start time from the input EZT or EZTXML file and uses it to recut/offset the subtitles.

Export secondary subtitles track as Forced Narratives

Subtitles from the secondary subtitle track will be considered as Forced Narratives and will be exported as a separate file, according to iTunes Package Film Specification:
The option becomes available only if the loaded file contains two subtitle tracks.
