Custom font for captions


Is it possible to specify a custom font to use for caption burn-ins?
Are there any plans to add this functionality?

This functionality is not currently supported in MediaConvert. For additional information on burn-in captions, please review the following document:

At the present time there are no plans to add the ability to specify customer fonts for burn-in output captions. If this is a requirement for your workflow, please let me know and we can forward your request as a feature request with our product team for prioritization.

Thanks Karen,

Yes this functionality is a requirement of my workflow as it is a feature many of our clients have requested. I'm not sure how MediaConvert processes video but I know FFMpeg allows for burn-in font selection. Ideally I would like to use MediaConvert rather than setting up a dedicated FFMpeg server.
