Are you aware you can just mux it into your source before feeding to HB?

What he's saying is that you should mux your source to a Matroska file first, attaching the fonts you want into it in the process. With an MKV source and MKV output, Handbrake will happily transfer all attached fonts intact and any subtitles you choose to keep.

There is not, by definition.
  • If you just add a watermark in the form of a handcrafted subtitle track, that will not affect film quality, but can easily be stripped out.
  • If you burn in the watermark subtitle (making it non-removable), the film has to be reencoded.
Further reading on doing one of the above using ffmpeg: http://superuser.com/questions/894938/a ... ws-version

At any rate, HandBrake can only help you with the reencoding part.
