DVD Studio pro & Subtitling

I am adding subtitles in DVD Studio pro. The client wants to have a banner behind the subtitle. In the subtitle inspector under the color tab there is a background slider, but when it is activated it covers the whole frame. Can this background be cropped so that it only appears behind the subtitles.

Thanks,

Nope. That's a kinda silly request- no offense to your client. Perhaps he wants it to be more like pop-up video style graphic titles and not proper subtitles?

No he actually wants it to look more like CC, but thank you for your thoughts.

Well that's something else entirely- you can definitely do closed captioning, but not with DVDSP directly.

Sounds like what they want is subs with a "box" behind them - this is usually a grey faded box that encompasses the text and makes the text more easily readable. You can't do this directly in Studio Pro. The only way - as far as I know - is to use an external subtitling program (which most folks who do a lot of subbing do). You need one that can produce this "box" effect and can then export graphics and an STL file that references these graphics which can be imported in to DVD-SP. Think Belle Nuit can do it if memory serves.
