I use the same subtitling program as "weaver" and here is the link: http://www.nikse.dk

The <br /> are correct for "creating" a new line.

Hi

I am still having problems with the subtitles. The text created in X6 stops on DVD after about 3-8 minutes, or the last working subtitle remains on the screen and the new one is not comming.
In my recent film I have about 80-120 subtitles. In first film it stops after the 15th text portion. In the second one after 32nd text, while in the 3rd film it stops on 23rd text.
In the X6 there is no problem.
In the movie factory ( portion of X6) it stops already in preview window ( and the same happens on the DVD). I converted the subtitles in different formats, and finally I discovered that it happens only when I save the subtitles on W7 computer. When I save the subtitles in my former X4 on the W XP, everything works fine.
This means now I create my film and subtitles on X6 on the W7 computer. I transfer the final video file and the subtitles to the old W XP computer and check in VS X4 the video and the subtitles and save them again. The video is not modified. In this form the MF6+ accepts the video and the subtitle and everything works perfect. Im not able finish the subtitled videos on the brand new W7 computer with VS X6 ultimate.

IE: subtitles stopping after a while Ok I had the same problem a while back, and this is what I think is the solution

1st) the srt file. Open it in notepad. Each subtitle should be composed of (no less than) 4 lines. First line the ordinal number (the order of play) second line the time stamp (start and end of subtitle) third (and maybe more) lines the actual text of the subtitle and last line is a blank line

next in notepad goto the file pulldown menu and select save as.. in the bottom of that window is an option for encoding. Pick UTF-8 and save the file (might want to change the filename to save the original as it was but remember to make the extension .str.

next in movie factory open your project and get to the point of adding subtitle (click edit subtitle) next click import subtitle file click the big T and find the file you just saved in the previous step. Right under that it probably says western European click the t to the left of that and from the pulldown select Unicode utf-8

finish the rest of you project and compile the dvd as you normally would

I have not had any problems after that

And for those of you wondering I use either antique olive normal or trebuchet ms font at 24 point (or what ever units is in the next pull down)

Thanks for that -- it sounds as though it could really be useful. But I need some clarification in what will show I am a complete novice when it comes to sub-titles.

First you refer to the subtitle extension as "srt":
1st) the srt file.
Later, however, you say:
... remember to make the extension .str.
Is one of those a typo? Or are there two separate extensions?

Dollars to donuts it's a typo. .srt is the only one that's for subtitles. Good info, though.

sorry, some times my fingers move faster than my brain

yes that all shold be SRT

i think it stands for SubRipped Text. for more information just do a web search for "srt extension" wikipedia has a pretty good description of it as do many other sites.

sorry for the confusion
