Problem synchronizing subtitle

vbimport

#1

Okay I have this dvd I’m trying to burn but the subtitles are not in sync. I followed the direction http://subtitlecreator.sourceforge.net/AddingSubtitles2aDVD.htm on this web site and used the software listed to create the dvd but when I test it the subtitles are out of sync …what can I do to correct this?:confused::sad::doh:


#2

I tried to sync the subtitle in subtitle workshop and the create subtitle program … I can get them in sync in the program, but when I test the movie before burning the subtitle is out of sync … :confused::rolleyes::sad:

judging by the lack of response it’s clear no one here know what to do …

Yawnnn!..Maybe it’s just ‘lack of interest’:rolleyes:… And it is the weekend BTW…I’ve only done it a few times(I think!), and it was a pain in the arse…So much so that frankly, I don’t remember exactly how I did it…Bad me!, I should have taken notes!..However if you have the right subs and correct format, you [I]should[/I] be able to author a new DVD with synced subs…
Have you tried searching for proper subs?..

Subtitles are pure work to get right. I avoid them like the plague.

I did find a tool that is supposed to address your problem over at videohelp.com, but have not tried it. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/VisualSubSync

Care to be the guinea pig and test this one? We’ll be happy to cheer from the sidelines. :slight_smile:

couldn’t figure out the vss … the time was way off and I don’t understand why … the ES didn’t work …I’ve gotten sub from both the sites you mention … it in sync in SW but when I go to burn the dvd … it’s off again … thanks anyway.

I’m with Kerry56…Too much trouble for what it’s worth(IMO)…
That said, you mention that “[I]it in sync in SW but when I go to burn the dvd it’s off again[/I]”…What authoring/burning tools?


#8

The tools I used are in the link I provided in my first post … thanks


#9

Ok!..I was hoping I didn’t have to go-back and re-read it…Perhaps you should try other tools/methods…
Lots of sub info over at videohelp…
Good luck!..really!..:wink:

I use Subtitle Workshop. If i do the whole movie it gets the start and the end right. What I do is split the movie into 4 or more parts, split subs equally at the corresponding line and time each part at a time, then I join the segments and all is good.
There is no easy way.

Thanks … I’ll keep trying … John I have no problem getting the subtiltes in sync with SW it’s when it’s time to burn the movie when it goes out of sync …

Try ConvertXToDVD. I have no problem burning with it.
