    I adjusted the first subtitle but then after a few more it goes off again.

    Another thing.

    The original subtitles stop at 2:25 but these stop at 2:22.

    I don't know if that is due to the framerate of PAL.

    Update.

    I burned the DVD but there is no sound. I can't activate the subtitles.

    Also there are no chapters so when I go to scene selection I can not skip to a certain scene.


    I did used IFOedit to pick the language but for some reason German is not on the list.


    I'm not sure why the subtitles weren't there though.


    I'll try again tommorow.

    I ran into your problem of synchronising the PAL subs to the NTSC VOB files with Subtitle Workshop when I ripped a commercial DVD (it worked ok with my own burned disks).I don't know what's causing it - there are a number of fixes listed in Google, but I cannot get them to work.

    The problem with chapters;did you extract the celltimes with Pgcdemux step and add them in Muxman.

    You're right I had not put in the celltimes.


    I tried again and the subtitles would not show up for some reason.

    Even though you could choose them they wouldn't display onscreen. They were there when I checked with DVDsubedit.


    I think I did something wrong with IFOedit.

    I tried to burn a disc and forget about the menus and that did work fine.

    Thanks for all the help.

    I'll try again so I can keep the menus later on.

    I hope someone can help.

    I was watching the movie and at one point the subtitles become de-sync'd.

    Originally I joing two SRT. files because it was split it two.

    The de-syinc happens when it jumps from the first file to the next.


    Does anyone know what I can do? And Subtitle Workshop won't do it because it doesn't let you watch the entire movie. It breaks the movie into parts.
