[FFmpeg-user] Converting text to video for dictation

Hello all,

typography effects based video
So that one is basically what I'm looking to do with ffmpeg - turn a
subtitle file (of any type) into a transparent backgrounded (?) video for
use in my video editor to combine the necessary contents together - or some
other file/method that has/involves time stamps/tags or "keyframes". Since
I don't intend to use my voice in my videos, I "voice" them via text
elements either in the center of the screen or some other places where it
makes sense to do so. (I do this with my current video editor already, but
it isn't very efficient, time and complexity wise, especially for videos
that heavily rely on this... so hopefully ffmpeg can help with that?) Also
if possible (not needed), font and color changing, and maybe some movement.

Maybe subtitles in the future, but I sort of already know how to do those,
however the first point would be good to know.
Thank you,

John B (JB).
