    Hello,

    My editing days are long gone so I don’t own an editing software anymore. I am trying to help a friend who needs to add a .srt file to a 45mn long video and export the result. The free editing apps don’t accept files this length (and let’s not talk about iMovie).
    Would anyone have a solution ? Thanks !

    Download a free trial.

    FCPX has has a free trial.

    Davinci Resolve is just free and can export srt.

    Do you have the srt file already or do you need to create the captions from scratch?

    I have the video and the srt. Will try the trials but usually the trials limit the length of the output.

    Davinci Resolve is free and fully functional. There is a version that you pay for, but the limit is resolution (over and above 4k).

    If you only want to merge video (mp4) and srt into 1 file you also may try the free Subler (https://subler.org)
