SubtitleCreator (alternative to srt2sup)

Updated 13-06-2005
I have been adding subtitles to DVDs for some time now, but converting srt files to sup files was a bit inconvenient wrt the subtitle colors. Although srt2sup created another tool, SupRemap, to solve this problem, I found that it took to much time and as I wanted to try C#, I wrote a program myself, SubtitleCreator, that does what srt2sup can do, and much more:
  • Read the original color palette from the IFO file, and you can select the colors you want to use
  • Determines PAL/NTSC video format
  • Use italics/bold/underline, in SubRip's and MicroDVD format
  • Use Larger/large/small fonts
  • Align text to the left/right/center
  • Basic synchronization using time shifting or frame rate conversion
  • Advanced synchronization by synchronizing with an original SUP file
  • Join multiple subtitle files, e.g. if the downloaded subtitle file is split in two parts.
  • It's much faster
  • Preview DVD + synchronization with DVD
  • Manipulate existing SUPs (remapping of colors, or repositioning vertically)
  • Stretch subtitles vertically or horizontally
  • Edit subtitles
  • Delete, insert and split subtitles
  • Search subtitles
  • Use a special algorithm for rendering Persian fonts, or other fonts where the characters are connected.
  • The subtitles are now automatically checked if they are too long. You can jump to the next too long subtitle using CTRL-N (can be turned off in the settings menu)
  • By default, subtitles with @ or HTTP etc are being unchecked, which can be turned of in the settings menu (can also be turned of in the settings menu)
  • By default, I turn on anti-aliasing to make the display look nicer, but this can be turned of in the settings menu, allowing you to see the actual output.
  • Auto-adjust SUP position (automatically position the SUP in the currently selected subtitle text area) to the tools menu.
  • Added (un-)select all subtitles to the listView's context menu.
  • Added remove line breaks to the listView's context menu.
  • Added a new (requested) aspect ratio of 2.21:1.
  • Added search function to the Manipulate SUP window.

Similar to srt2sup, you can also:
  • Position subtitles
  • Position the subtitles using a screenshot of your movie
  • Deselect certain subtitles

Additionally, the zip file contains an updated version of my guide, explaining in detail using screenshots what you need to do to add a subtitle to a DVD.


Please, try it out and let me know what you think of it.

Finally, in the thread will you find people mentioning bugs that have already been solved.
