Aegisub Builds

The most up-to-date version of Aegisub that should currently be used is Shinon’s Daydream Cafe fork, not the official 3.2.2 build. It also comes bundled with DependencyManager, a tool for easily obtaining typesetting scripts and keeping them up-to-date.

This build does not require installation. Should you wish to associate the .ass file extension to the program, you can do so on Windows with the following steps:

  1. Right click an existing .ass file
  2. Open with > Choose another app
  3. Tick Always use this app to open .ass files
  4. More apps > scroll down to Look for another app on this PC
  5. Navigate to the aegisub executable

Note that configuration files and automation scripts are stored in your application data folder, they are not stored inside the aegisub executable directory.

Aegisub Configuration

Upon starting up Aegisub the first time you should go ahead and change the following settings:
View > Options > Advanced > Video

  • Set Subtitles Provider to libass.
  • Untick Force BT.601. Automatically disabled and no longer an option in newer forks. It is extremely important to make sure you work in the right colorspace.

Restart Aegisub for the changes to fully take effect. Note that script settings may override the colorspace.
