Not in the near future.

The subtitle data on a Blu-Ray consists of images with a color/alpha palette of up to 256 entries. To make things worse, each subpicture frame can have a separate palette, i.e. you'd have to edit potentially hundreds of thousands of palettes with 256 entry each.

Most blu-rays I came across did not use all 256 palette entries and had the same palette for all images but this is not true in general.

This is not the first time this feature has been requested so I created an issue for it on github and time permitting I'll investigate whether I could come up with a simple editor.

Could you throw together some code more quickly which only changes the palette of the first subpicture to 100% Red or 100% Green or 100% Blue. In my case, I just need I way to create colored PGS samples for renderer testing purposes. I unfortunately don't own any Blu-rays with PGS subtitles other than light-gray, so it's a bit of a problem. I assume the PGS file actually needs to be parsed, and it wouldn't be trivial to identify and hack at the palette in a hex editor?

Alternatively, if anybody would send me small samples (only a single PGS subpicture is fine) of colored PGS subtitles from their Blu-rays, I would be grateful.

I don't have samples at hand but you could easily create those yourself with avs2bdnxml, I guess.

Thanks sneaker_ger, avs2bdnxml seems to work well for doing what I needed.

You can create one as follows:

- load a blu-ray sup file
- export it as SUP/IDX
- load the exported sup/idx file
- change the palette mode to 'Create new'
- check the colors in use under 'Edit DVD Frame Palette'
- edit the palette under 'Edit imported DVD palette'
- export it back as SUP(BD).

Java error

I`m getting this error when I open an SUP file. It does not happen with a SUB file.

I downloaded the latest version of BDSup2Sub and also re-installed the JVM with no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I found a workaround.

The problem only happened with SUPs from a specific BD (U2: Rattle and Hum). Those SUPs crash all versions of BDSup2Sub, including the latest beta (https://github.com/mjuhasz/BDSup2Sub/wiki/Download) and even the C++ port (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=165416). Nasty!

I used SUPRead (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=121535) to read the SUP file and export it to another BD-SUP file and then used BDSup2Sub to do its thing.

Please upload those subtitles, so the devs can fix the crash.

Hello,

I get this error ''Offset 66847570 out of bounds for file <path to file>" each time I try to open a SUP file extracted with Project-X from an European DVB .m2ts file.

The first time I thought it was because of a crop of the beginning of the .m2ts file, but I tried two more times with no crop, and I get the same error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

It's hard to tell what the problem is without seeing the actual sup file. Please share it with me so that I can have a look.

Some explanation about why these kind of error happen (extracted from the wiki):

Reading/writing data from/to transport streams is quite a hassle since the formats are usually not well documented and you will always stumble over a stream that either contains authoring errors or uses features so uncommon that they are not documented anywhere. Indeed, most of the time it is impossible to tell if some weird stream is only on the edge of what is allowed or simply faulty. So often enough, programs that read or write transport streams will only support a certain amount of commonly used (and known) sub-features. Therefore it is likely that BDSup2Sub will stumble over the streams created by other programs or other programs will have problems reading the streams created by BDSup2Sub and it's generally hard to tell whose fault it is.

afaik only BD-SUP = SUP streams like they are on a Blu-ray and not DVB-SUPs are supported by BDSup2Sub

Looks like a nice release. Thanks. The only reason I keep using BDSup2Sub++ is its support for multi-language IDX/SUB files.
I can easily switch the language w/ the combo-box they added. Very useful.

As you can see on the Download page the latest version is 5.1.1

The SNAPSHOT version is a build made from the latest source code. It may not be stable at certain times since it's a work in progress. Those running it can provide me with valuable feedback by creating issues on GitHub. Those who don't want to test but need a stable version should run the latest stable version instead.

5.1.0 had the convert resolution feature broken and it was well worth making a bugfix release for it, that is 5.1.1. There was not enough change to bump the version to 5.2.0 since it only fixes a couple of bugs. Of course 5.2.0 will have the fixes as well.
To recap, 5.1.0 was followed by 5.1.1 and we can have more 5.1.x releases and eventually we'll have 5.2.0. I hope this answers your question.

Hello,

I get the following error using BDSup2Sub (5.1.1) with multiAVCHD:

!!! Error converting subtitles! (java?)

My system is a Windows 8 Pro x64.

Same installed software on a XP system (Virtualbox) runs without any error.

Java is installed on both systems.

Any clue?


Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

With such vague information I doubt you can be helped. What was the file being processed by BDSup2Sub? Is there a log with more info?

Thanks a lot for your quick answer.

How can I provide you with the requested detailed information?

BDSup2Sub runs in multiAVCHD so I haven't detailed logs regarding BDSup2Sub.

The part of the log concerning BDSup2Sub is:

I did some research and mencoder (the process before encoding the subtiltes) has a problem with Windows 8 Pro x64.

I don't know if this is a general problem or only affects me but I'll try to find this out.
