I'm having an issue with subtitle drift in Encore CS6. I'm hoping others have had the same issue and have come up with a solution.
I have a timeline that's 1 hour and 5 minutes. It's 23.98. The subtitles, both English and Spanish, were originally created in SRT format as our primary method of distribution has been VHX.tv. I'm on a Mac and used cross-platform subtitle tool Jubler to convert the SRT to Encore TXT file. I paid special attention to make sure it didn't change the frame rate.
When I import it into Encore, it drifts by approximately 3 seconds towards the end. It seems to be a drop frame/non-drop frame type of drift but Encore acknowledges that the timeline is in 23.98. I converted the subtitles to 24 fps. I've opened up the txt file and changed the semicolons to colons. Everything I've done so far hasn't resulted in anything different.
I'm going a little nuts. Hopefully I'm just missing something obvious?
I'm on a Mac Pro running 10.10.2 if that makes any kind of difference.
It´s a bit weird with the subtitles, especially if you´ve got 24fps or 23.98fps. mostly you need to do a trial and error. sometimes they fit if you export as 24fps with 24fps-footage, sometimes they need to be exported as 23.98fps. no clue about it.
