DVD Studio Pro subtitle test
on Apr 2, 2011 at 8:14:30 pm

Hello I have a simple 3 line, 10 second subtitle test that I'm trying to make work and can't.

DVD Studio Pro 4.2.2
Mac Pro, 10.6.6
The subtitles have been made on a windows machine and saved as a text file. The message I get from DVD Studio Pro when I import the subtitle file onto the corresponding track's subtitle timeline is: No corresponding subtitles found.

The mpeg1 file time code starts at three minutes. (00:03:00:00)
The text file's first subtitle starts at three minutes: (00:03:00:00)
The timeline is set to show asset based timecode and starts at 3 minutes (00:03:00:00)
There are no fonts or styles specified (the text file is simply three subtitles)

I've attached the subtitle file 1824_testrastkowithtc.txt.zip
The mpeg1 file: 1825_avidtimecodempeg1.m1v.zip

As this was supposed to be a test for the longer subtitling process I need to know it's going to work, and I must be doing something wrong! Anybody know what's wrong?
Thanks.
Dan

dan,
is there a reason why you are using MPEG1 instead of MPEG2? I would go MPEG2 because of better picture-quality.

your subtitel-file should look like that:

03:00:00:00, 03:00:10:00, sample-text

cheers

Thanks Danny that worked
It was good to get at least a basic test working. Now I have to find out why the formatting is different when the subtitler exports their subtitle test.

The subtitler's program only takes mpeg1 (I'll use MPEG2 for the final DVD)

your subtitel-file should look like that:
03:00:00:00, 03:00:10:00, sample-text

It worked!
Thanks.
