Passion of Christ - Stretched Subtitles

I've done the Passion of Christ DVD (PAL) rip and have used substitles for the first time, The only problem is that the subtitles are stretched on the screen.

you don't say if they're separate or burnt-in, how you made them, how you burnt them in(if applicable),or what plays them back, what format they're in ,what container the rip is in, what muxing application you used or anything

my stupid fault.

GKNOT was used and I used the built in support for subtitles.
DivX5 Format. First time i've used subtitles, so I just used what came with GKNOT, VobSub i think. If u guys have a better way that assures me getting the subtitles in correct size, cause the movie is Widescreen (16:9) then let me know, I still have the Dvd decrypted onto my hdd. I can do it again.

ive never used Gknot, and have no idea how it works but, you say the subtitles are stretched. As your output is Divx you are probably making hardsubs. It sounds as if you have put the subtitles on before resampling (resizing) the video so it displays properly onscreen. Can you put the titles on after?

Yikes, I forgot you techz
GK puts the subtitles before resizing indeed by default

just go to edit(or filters in advanced) in the avisynth GK box, and move the line down one notch manually

Hmmm yes, thatīs what we meant. I assume you checked that the stretching isnīt in the original DVD?(what happens when you play them as external?) I donīt ever burn subtitles in, never mind vobsubs, so Iīd need to do some testing. Workaround, you can convert them as srt and hardcode them the textsub way.Or change the font.

ok, well that went over my head

No prob, thanks for all the help anyway. I'll try another font and autoGK also. Im still a bit worried to install AutoGK 1.6 and GKNOT 0.28.8 on the same pc, although I was told by lenox i think that its ok, there must be some conflicts?

No there arenīt any conflicts. playing the dvd and checking the subtitles are not stretched in the first place, canīt possibly be too hard , can it?
