Problem importing subtitles contating numbers in the beginning of line
on Jan 16, 2007 at 11:52:11 am

Hey
I'm trying to create a DVD for a family trip.
I want the subtitles to be the hour & date in this format:
HH:MM
DD.MM.YYYY

The Encore format is like that:

<2nd line text>

problem is that the Encore subtitle file starts to interpret a number at the second line (the date) as the subtitle start time and when he gets to the '.' it stops importing since this is not the format of the
when the second line starts with a non-digit it imports the file with no problems

I have tried changing the subtitle file to use '|' as line separator, but Encore imports it as one line (showing HH:MM|DD.MM.YYYY)

I hope someone knows how to overcome this problem
Thanks
Elad

I haven't taken the time to test for myself, but have you tried putting a space before the second line of text?

You didn't say if you had tried that or not.

Did you save your file as UTF 8?

format should be tcIn tcOut subtitle text

I did
but that's not the case, you didn't read the problem
I have trouble importing the subtitle file since the subsequent lines (when a subtitle has more than one line) start with a number, I get import error

Sorry, my bad.
I think it's trying to decode the number as TC...
Only fast solution i see now is to add a dummy character before the number, and manually edit those out after import, or place them between (brackets) or .

I could alter my subtitler application to generate a FAB file from your files, but i think that's overkill for your specific situation. (It would set you back 169 dollar, kind of steap for a family trip video...)

hmm. thanks for the response
I thought of all of the above suggestions
I figured that my best solution is to make the date & time in one line, it's not that improtant that I should manually change all the subs myself.

Is there a way to let Adobe know of this bug?
