Hello, guys, I am a first-time-poster, although I am no newbie to video editing. But, there is a point when advice would help. Namely, what I would like to do is convert a DVD movie from original DVD into an mpeg2 file (720x576, approx. 8 mbps, PAL) in that way that the subtitles would be burnt into the mpeg file. I need this for cable TV broadacast of licensed movies (the publisher gives me movies on original DVDs) and I have been solving this issue so far by real time S-VHS playout with subtitles and recording the movie into hard disk recorder or into the playout PC via video capture card. It would save me a lot of time if I could convert the DVD movie directly to MPEG2 file with subtitles already "burnt" into the file. I will appreciate any possible advice and help. Basically, I have a DVD with selectable subtitles and what I would like to do is an original quality mpeg2 file with subtitles already embedded (hardcoded) into the file. Thank you for your help and advice on which software to use.
