Summary0001393: Color options 'missing' for bitmap subs?

Hi Carl,

I just wanted to reproduce a workflow I used last year, removing opacity from DVD bitmap subs, and noticed that in 2.12 the subtitle appearance dialog looks completely different from 2.10.5, which I used last time. So, in 2.12.x, it seems I can not change the color table of bitmap subs at all?

See attached screenshot - this is how it looks like in 2.10.5.

Those controls are behind the "Appearance..." button in the subtitle tab. However, they don't work any more because we no longer scan the whole of a subtitled video file on import, so we no longer find all the colours that subtitles can be.

It would probably be best if a "deep" inspection were triggered when the appearance box was opened, otherwise we'd be doing potentially long scans which the majority of users wouldn't need.

Hmm, I saw the remains (unpopulated) of that dialog in the current version and suspected something like that. While I am all for reducing analysis and prechecking times, I guess it is bad to miss something like this by trying to save some time. Wouldn't it be possible to perform all checks in parallel (multithreaded), so one check delivers all information - audio, video, and general content parameters?

Worst case (e.g. a BluRay rip) you need to run through 30-odd GB of data; the problem is more the disk IO rather than the processing so I don't think multithreading would help that much.
