XySubFilter (XySubFilter.dll) is a new high quality subtitle filter which requires a compatible Subtitle Consumer supporting the new subtitle interface. We recommend madVR 0.87.5+ or MPC-HC 1.7.2+ (EVR-CP).

What Is Different in xy-VSFilter & XySubFilter
Significantly faster overall compared to Libass.
Up to multiple orders of magnitude faster than VSFilter 2.41
High resolution subtitle rendering (XySubFilter only)
External support for PGS/HDMV subtitles (XySubFilter only)
New Style Override Dialog (XySubFilter only)
Force Default Style (XySubFilter only)
Support U+10000-U+10FFFF UTF-8 encoded character (XySubFilter only)
Subpics are now drawn directly in YUV/RGB as needed to improve performance
Official VSFilter always rendered subtitles in RGB and did a RGB -> YUV conversion when outputting YUV formats
Floating-point Gaussian Blur implementation (higher quality + significantly faster with large blur values)
More efficient Border code (higher quality + up to 12x faster with large border sizes)
More efficient Clip code (significantly faster + up to 1.8GB reduction in RAM usage when rendering gradients)
More efficient Color Conversion, Chroma Placement, Alpha Blending, and Rasterization code (SSE2 optimized)
Alpha blending on dirty areas of the frame only
Alpha-blending with sub-sampled/interlaced chroma where applicable
Addition of numerous caches to speed up animated effects
Proper implementation of animation detection to speed up static typesetting
New script parser to speed up loading of very large subtitle scripts
75% reduction in CPU load overhead when idle
Input/Output support for 10-bit P010 & 16-bit P016 4:2:0 YUV formats
Requires: P010 or P016 support in both the video renderer (e.g. madVR) and video decoder to use this optional feature.
Input/Output support for NV12 & NV21 4:2:0 YUV formats
Important for users of ATI GPUs and EVR-CP
Input/Output support for AYUV 4:4:4 YUV format
Sub-pixel Positioning configuration option [None, 2x2, 4x4, 8x8, 8x8(bilinear)]
Official VSFilter defaults to 8x8. New method 8x8(bilinear) offers 8x8 positioning using bilinear scaling instead of rasterization.
BT.709/BT.601 matrix configuration option for subtitle rendering
Support for 'YCbCr Matrix' tagging in SSA/ASS scripts.
Defaults to BT.601 when 'YCbCr Matrix' is not present in the script.
TV/PC YCbCr level range configuration option for subtitle rendering
Support for 'YCbCr Matrix' tagging in SSA/ASS scripts.
Defaults to TV range when 'YCbCr Matrix' is not present in the script.
Support for sub-pixel drawing of vector shapes.
Warning: Unsafe outside of hardsubbing. VSFilter 2.39 will crash. VSFilter 2.41 won't display anything.
Support for non-integer values of fscx fscy
Support for 'correct' MPEG-2/H.264 left chroma placement for YCbCr output
VSFilter 2.39/2.41 uses 'incorrect' MPEG-1 centered chroma placement
ASS/SSA layout scaling function
HDMV(PGS) & DVB Subtitle support from VSFilter 2.41
Correct level range & matrix used with PGS & DVB subtitles
Option to hide VSFilter tray icon
Removed pre-buffer subpics option (may be re-added in the future)
