according to the site you can export BDMV (which I thought was needed for the pop-up meus) yet the list above doesn't mention that

also, if I create BDMVs, what codecs does it support? (MPEG2, h.264 and VC1 are the standards)

Can a US customer use the Australian trial version of Movie Factory 7?

Is there any reason why a U.S. customer can't just buy the Australian version of the program via download, since it seems to be taking so long for it to come out in the U.S.?

Subtitles

Post by weaver »

I downloaded the MF7 and tried the subtitling feature of the program. On the first film (30 min) the subtitles stopped at 3:30 min. Always on the same scene (an there is no error or something similar on the video. On the second film (23 min) the subtitles stopped on 10:20 min.
In both cases the preview was error free and I checked several times and repeated the burn procedure at least 4 times (with capitols and without)

I have no idea why the subtitles are suddenly dissapearing (I tried also to change the text files no influence).

The second issue, the recorded DVD was not running well on my portable DVD player (the menu was OK but the film start not always) - this my test player for all DVDs. The DVD was running on several other DVD players and PCs.

Any idea?

I see from past posts you also own VideoStudio.
You could try this method:

Create Subtitles with VS11+ for use in MF6+ (Video)

I once had a portable DVD player but to be honest I came to the conclusion they were a waste of money when a small laptop does not cost much more and is far more reliable and useful.

Hi sjj

Thank you for your reply. I created (modified) the subtitles in VS10+ (I have nothing newer and I am quite satisfied with VS10+). I do not have the MF6, before to purchase I wanted to try the newest MF 7.
The VS10+ saves the Subtitles in *.utf format - unfortunately the MF requires *.srt. When I rename the *.utf into *.srt the MF7 accepts this and in the preview everything works perfect.

The procedure in MF7 is the same as MF6, it is just that MF6 was the "current version" at the time I created that article.

This is a biggest danger.

The PC usually plays everything, while the desktop or portable players play more or less only the standard DVDs!!!!
Once happened to me on DVD Lab, that the DVD was burned well, everything was correct but the DVD could not be played on any desktop player (no problem on PCs or MACs). After several month experimenting (and discussion also here) I found out that the DVD was not burned to ISO standard, so I had to convert the professional RAW DVD (4 language) into ISO and solved all problems......
