I am currently using DVDFab Platinum 22.214.171.124 and I would like to ensure that I rip my films with the forced subtitles if any are used in the film. If I load a DVD (in this case '300') in DVDFab it will show that there are six languages available:-
The second English entry has 'normal' in the Extension column. Now if I select one language only I can check the box 'Display only forced subpicture'.
Does this mean that the forced subtitles are inside the standard subtitles?
On the next screen I can set the 'Conversion Settings', here I choose 'generic.xvid.audiocopy' (if that matters). I can then set the subtitles to be either extracted to the IDX/SUB files or directly rendered onto the film. If I select 'Direct render to video' I believe I'll end up with all of the subtitles rendered into the film. If I select 'Extract' and create the separate files will I end up with my forced subtitles rendered into the film, but the standard subtitles output to the files?
Am I understanding this correctly? If not can someone please point me in the right direction. Will it be the same method across all films with forced subtitles? If the film doesn't have forced subtitles and I use the same method for those will it cause any problems with the end result?
