Ive tried a few different ways to do this but they all take way too long.

    $\begingroup$ Why are you making subtitles inside Blender? See blender.stackexchange.com/questions/82188/… $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Oct 29 '17 at 22:08

  • $\begingroup$ Blender does have what is called "Freestyle". I use it for subtitles when the need arises. If you can't get it going I can place an answer here, or someone else will. It works well. The render time for each subtitle is a only a second or so. $\endgroup$ – Edgel3D Oct 30 '17 at 4:21

If you are using text objects in 3D view then you could bevel the text and use a texture to color the edges black. There is no additional render overhead from Freestyle renderer and this is using the Blender Internal render engine.

render outline


bevel settings

Notice that I have altered the direction of the texture blend by using the mapping values for X axis.
