View Full Version : how to edit then hardcode subs

19th November 2001, 01:12

I have a dvd with subtitles already included, however, they were pooly done and many words are spelled incorrectly. I know I can use subrip to extract the subtitles, and use an editor to edit them, but how would I then re-encode them into my video. I don't want to have seperate subtitles that I have to load in the player, I want to have them encoded into the video. Can anyone tell me what to use for this?

1. Save the file you get from SubRip as .srt

2. Convert the .srt to .ssa using a program like this (http://www.divx-digest.com/software/srt2ssa.html). (the download link only seems to work about 1 out of 15 tries for me, keep trying if you get an error)

3. Download and install SubStation Alpha (http://www.eswat.demon.co.uk/download32.html).

4. Open, edit, and save the converted .ssa file using SubStation Alpha (http://www.eswat.demon.co.uk/) as necessary.

5. Encode using Avery Lee's SSA plugin (http://www.virtualdub.org/virtualdub_filters).

Thanks! I figured I would have to do something like that, but I needed that SRT to SSA converter. I finally got the link to work, lol.
