I want to recreate the disc, either as separate mp4's with burned in captions, or as a DVD with a menu and burned in captions - I don't mind either way.
I'm trying to use handbrake at the moment but could use that or Vegas Pro 13 - whichever one will work.
If i use handbrake and choose 'add new track' or 'add all remaining tracks' it brings in subtitles with the name 'unknown (vobsub)'. I choose burn in. When the episode is burned, the captions don't show up, not burned-in nor 'on if available'. I feel like handbrake can't find them.
I'm accustomed to choosing srt's so I'm not really sure about vobsubs.
Can someone please advise the quickest way to do this? There are two DVD's with 8 x 30 min episodes each. They need to end up with option captions, either as individual episodes or as a DVD with menu, either way, as long as the captions are burned-in.
Yes, the captions exist. I can turn them on when I watch the DVD, however if this helps at all - WMP sees them as 'English (United States' track and VLC sees them as 'Track 2' (NOT 'Track 1 - English').
You need to get it out of the DVD format. I use a popular consumer DVD Ripper Pro to make the DVD into an MP4 which Vegas handles quite easily. I do not know what the program would do with Closed Captions.
I can't tell you what program is used because the last time I posted the program name on The Cow, I was temporarily banned from the forums.
If I need to transcribe captions, I just let YouTube do it for me. It's been about 90-90% accurate and certainly a lot faster than me listening to a few seconds then typing it in.
