Burning to DVD (Subtitles)


Recommended Posts

I have read the excelent instructions, on the Tony's Topfield site, for preparing Topfield recorded files for a DVD burn.

I have been totally successful in creating DVD's and even managed to incorporate DVD shrink into the proceedures to better fit multiple episodes of shows onto single disks.

My question is this;

Does anyone know of a way to also include the subtitles data from the Topfield file when preparing for a DVD burn?

thx

Thanks for that Fletch. I hinted there was a solution like this in a recent post, but of course forgot the authoring package name and the format to export the subtitles in for projectX (IFO-EDIT will also support one particular version of the subtitles, NOT .son, probably .SUP, but of course this doesn't build any kind of menu and still doesn't help with cutting adverts out).

My experience with Maestro is... it is painful in the extreme to get any kind of good results out with it (no templates, no buttons, no anything, everything has to be built from first principles). Also as it is an old package, I can't even see anything in the preview window unless I close down my Asus package that puts an overlay up on the screen with my TV input in it (so I can't Maestro and watch TV on my PC at the same time, all other packages and media players don't have a prob with my Asus Live overlay window).

The other problem is no cutting programme supports cutting the subtitles yet.

You can cut with projectX itself, but it's cutting is pretty horrible to use..

Regards

For cutting there is nothing better than MPEG-VCR. :blink:

MPEG-VCR destroys any subtitle info in the file.. I think that if you edit the commercials out in ProjectX and then demux, you still retain the sub info.

RE: Maestro - Your absolutely right Tony about it being a pain to use initially. Once you are familiar with it though, it does not take a lot of time to author a multi-Episode DVD with menus and selectable subtitles... Plus its very flexible.

It was the tool of choice for many years for proefessional DVD authorers.. Its pretty much overkill for home needs.
