Subtitles in QuickTime X

For ages I've been happily using QuickTime 7 Pro for all my video needs. I guess with Catalina now the time has come to move on …

But there is one thing that keeps holding me back. In QT7 I could easily add and remove subtitle files as simple text files in this form:

{QTtext}{timescale:100}{size:12}{backColor:0,0,0}{textColor:65535,65535,65535}{width:320}{justify:left}
[00:00:00.980]
{textEncoding:256}Hello!
[00:00:01.980]
[00:00:02.422]
{textEncoding:256}How are you?
[00:00:03.422]

That doesn't (didn't?) work in QuickTime X. Nor do I seem to be able to add SRT files to a movie file.

Now, I've heard some rumors that QuickTime X is getting some Pro features in Catalina. Has anyone got a clue if adding/modifying subtitles is finally supported in QTX or if there are any workarounds?

(I don't want to upgrade to Catalina myself quite yet to try out for the obvious reason that I won't be able to go back in case it doesn't work … I know eventually I'll have to … but, I guess I'm not quite ready yet to invest in completely redesigning my workflows or buying additional software. So, if there's anyone who has updated and/or is more knowledgeable about this I would be highly appreciative of any hints and suggestions.)
