As such, you are able to create and add your own subtitles to a DVD. In many ways, SubtitleCreator is similar to the program Sup2srt, but there are some new features as well, which are marked with an (*)

Features:

  • Convert SubRib (.srt) or MicroDVD (.sub) files to IfoEdit (*.sup) files
  • Load the corresponding IFO file (thanks to the SubRip sources), such that you can use the same color palette as used by the original subtitles (*)
  • Based on the IFO color palette, it tries to select white text, a black outline and a silver anti-alias color on a transparent gray background (*)
  • Based on the IFO file, it determines whether we are dealing with PAL or NTSC, and sets the subtitle window position appropriately (*)
  • Uses the line breaks you defined in the .srt source, such that dialogs stay on different lines. However, the maximum number is defined by you, and if it doesnít fit the window, the subtitles are joined and, if necessary, shrunken ()
  • You can now also use italics, bold, or underlined subtitles (*)
  • You can also use < L >, < l > and < s > for LARGE, large, and small text (*)
  • Preview and position your subtitles (using a screenshot as background)
  • Deselect subtitles that you donít want
  • Automatically deselects credit lines (with @, or http) (*)
  • Choose the font that you like to use
  • Use profiles for default font and subtitle window position settings (*)
  • You can join several subtitle files, e.g. if the original subtitle consisted of two parts (*)
  • Synchronize the subtitles using time shifting
  • Synchronize the subtitles using frame rate conversion (*)
  • Synchronize the subtitles using the original subtitle .sup: you can select matching subtitles in the new and original subtitle and match them ()
  • Save the synchronized subtitle file
  • Stretch subtitles in horizontal and vertical direction (*)
  • Specify how many lines you wish to use for the subtitle (*)
  • Specify whether you want SC to automatically wrap lines (*)
  • Specify whether you want SC to generate bitmaps of the subtitles for you (*).
  • Specify whether you want SC to remove double spaces and other types of annoyances (*)
  • When opening a MicroDVDís SUB file, special formatting commands are automatically recognized, like {Y:i}, {Y:b} and {Y:bi}
  • You can define your own shortcuts in the configuration file, e.g. < s M > gives you the music symbol (*)
  • You can search for a subtitle string.

What's New:

New features

  • SC can now export/import color palettes with SUP files. The formats supported are .IFO, .clb (PgcEdit) and .mxp (Muxman). You can also copy/paste palette between SC and PgcEdit.
  • Read and write VobSub files (sub/idx) the same way as sup files and create a VobSub file directly from a srt or sub (text) file. It can also open a sup file and write it to a sub/idx file or do the opposite (Open a VobSub (sub/idx) file and write it to a sup file). If you have a vobsub file (.sub) without the associated .idx file (or the idx is broken), you can use SubtitleCreator to generate a new one. Go to Tools->Manipulate Sup. Open your IFO file if you have it (just for the color palette), open your sub file and save it as sub, SubtitleCreator will automatically generate the corresponding idx file for you. You can even use VobSub files with the DVD authoring wizard and create them using the Command Line Interface. For the moment, can only input VobSub files extracted using VSRip, wether they include mutiple streams or not. Also allows to add your subtitle stream at the end of an existing VobSub file.
  • Added tool to invoke Google translate to automatically translate subtitles
  • Using Microsoft Office 2003, implementation of OCR to convert SUP to SRT.
  • Support for covering or concealing hard-coded subtitles in a DVD by overlaying them with a non-transparent (black) background. After a manual chapter switch, you have to wait till the first subtitle arrives before it becomes effective (subtitles have no stop time, but need to start).
  • Added support in the DVD wizard for wav and mpa files
  • Automatic selection of the prefered palette when there is no existing subtitle stream in the original DVD. This will avoid black/green subtitles.
  • Added three new command buttons: set the font for a single subtitle, increase and decrease fonts

Bug fixes

  • Generated VobSub output files are now compatible with Philips DVP-5960 SAP thanks to FitzGerald
  • SC no longer crashes upon encountering the This is in blue tag
  • Automatic replacement of non-markup < and > with , or < and >
  • Fixed selection of manual when no culture is set, select the language that belongs to the current GUI culture
  • No more exception when playing a 2 subs SRT/SUB file with overlay.
  • The vertical position of the profiles is now correctly saved and retrieved
  • In the result of the DVD authoring wizard audio streams were sometimes mixed.
  • An incorrect subtitle file generating an exception will not be automatically reloaded at startup.
  • When opening a sup file and writing it, some sup durations were slightly changed. This should not be the case anymore.
  • When translating subtitles (in the tools menu), you can now properly scale the window, read an IFO, and save it, even if it was not complete (requires to unselect Clean up spaces during load * must be fixed)
  • The "Show actual output" setting is now correctly restored at startup.
  • When using the DVD authoring wizard, SRT files can now be used even if they are not in the same Directory as the original DVD files.
  • Some small GUI improvements
