    Not very specific, don't you think?

    In what format your movie is now? DVD? AVI/DivX? VCD? SVCD? CVD?

    In what format you have the subtitles?

    Do you want to have the subtitles "burnt" on the video (so you can't turn them on/off) or?

    Since it's a week later, I'll piggy-back on this post and ask...

    I have a 2-part AVI/DivX rip of a film. I have the subs for each part in .srt format. What I want to do is burn them both to (preferrably) 1 DVD or (less desireably) 2 VCDs.

    My problem is...how the heck do I make the subs a permanent part of the vid file? I would like to have the ability to turn the subs on/off, but will go with whatever method is easier. Hopefully the end result being playable in my standalone Panasonic. Hopefully... :)

    Thanks for any help!

    ok, forget the adding subs to VCD, please...I finally read far enough back in the posts (yes, I DO use the search function before posting, I swear!) and found this http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/4404

    However, I do still want a newbie's guide to adding them for DVD, for the least conversion possible.

    Thanks again for the patience & advice!

    For DVD, I'm not too familiar with the authoring tools like Scenarist or DVDIt and what format they need to get the DVD subs in, so unfortunately I can't really help on that one.

    Anyone else?

    Hiya,

    It is indeed very possible to add subtitles back to DVD. I used DVDMaestro for this.

    You need to rip your subtitles first of all from DVD (or you could always download them from http://www.subtitles.cz/en/ (various formats available).

    Before you can import them to DVDMaestro, you need to do a few conversions. It only takes about 10 mins after you know what you are doing.

    Check out this guide:

    http://www.doom9.org/mpg/maestro.htm

    It explains it all better than I could here (sorry for posting doom9 links, but it is a good resource after all).

    Anyway, my subs were apprx 9 seconds too late in playing, so I searched the web and found a neat util called Subsync:

    http://users.pandora.be/vlad/subsync/

    Just load your sub files and select Edit Subtitles then the SHIFT option. Enter the value and all subs will be moved + or - to the desired frame(s) :) Very nice app indeed.

    I am happy to say that getting subs onto a DVD-R was so easy with the guides above and the appz used.

    Give it a try. Like I said tho, this is for DVDMaestro. DVDit does not allow subs :(

    Not sure what other authoring packages do. But Maestro was a joy to use from start to finish and I have subs I can turn on/off on my dvd's now.

    Hope that helps?

    geemix! How can you suggest to use $37,000 (yes, thirty seven THOUSAND) package to add own subtitles! You are responding to "newbis"!

    neco_loco! Did you try it that night?

    But seriuosly: is ther any cheeper way to add subtitles to the DVD-R? Don't suggest ReelDVD ($1,500) or Pinnacle DVD-Pro ($400).

    Hey, can I download DVDMaestro from the net? Where to buy it? No more in the market? Why there's someone says $37,000 to teach a NEWBIE? How much actually is DVDMaestro? I am another NEWBIE and I am asking : is there any way to add a brand new subtitle to my DVD movies by using freewares or at least not paying that much of money like a professional Hollywood movie making company??? Thank you!

    jameskoh: Yes, with IFOEdit -- complicated, but its possible to do. Some hints you can get by reading our AVI to DVD guide from our guides section.

    Hi dRD, I have ifoEdit downloaded as well but don't know how to use it. I actually downloaded all the softwares which I read from the guides but the guides are not dummy for NEWBIE like me so I don't move any step so far. Would you pls guide me step by step on how to use that ifoEdit? Any other software I need to have to do so? Or any dummy guide in your links? Please let me know as I am eager to creat new Chinese subtitles for my parents, thanks.
