Definitely possible to do this in QT Pro. I've done it several times in the last year. I'll provide instructions later when I'm actually at my machine.

*Create a text file with subtitles in text editor. Use the return key to separate subtitles and save the file in TXT format.Open the text file in QuickTime Pro, select all of the frames and copy the text to the clipboard. Choose "Add to Movie" from the Edit menu to paste the text track into the movie timeline.
*Export the new text track. Choose "Text to Text" for the Export format pop-up menu. Go to the Options button and click on "Show Text, Descriptors, and Time." Your file will export with the code you need to synchronize your subtitles to your movie.
*Delete the old text track.From the Window menu Select "Show Movie Properties" . Select the text track and delete that.
*now you can open the exported file in word processor or text editor. You will see a beginning time stamp [00:00:00.00] followed by information on each subtitle. Drag the playback slider in the QuickTime movie to the point where you want the first subtitle to begin. Note the time and replace the beginning time stamp with the new time stamp in the text file
*Queue your movie to the point where you want each subtitle to stop playing. Type the time into the time stamp on the line immediately following the subtitle text. When the times are added to the file and save it.
*Add the subtitles to the movie. Open the text file in QuickTime, select the entire timeline and copy it to the clipboard. Go to the movie file and return the playback head to the beginning of the movie. Use "Add to Movie" to paste the new text file into the movie.
*Export the movie. Choose "Movie to iPod" from the Export format settings. QuickTime will flatten the movie and burn the subtitles directly onto the video (which means they can no longer be edited as text). Save your original file in QuickTime format in case you need to edit or add additional subtitle tracks.
