Adding subtitle tracks to movies
Subtitles are text strings that the viewer can choose to display over the video. They are most commonly used for foreign-language dialogue, but may also be used for director’s commentary, subtitles for children, and so on.
A movie can have up to 32 subtitle tracks. DVD players read all available subtitle tracks simultaneously; viewers choose which track they wish to see.
DVDit Pro provides two methods for adding subtitles to movies:
Import subtitle script files created in a text editor. This method is best if you have hundreds or thousands of subtitles to import.
Create subtitles within DVDit Pro. This method is better if you only need to create a few subtitles.
Both methods let you specify the start timecode, end timecode, position on screen, typeface, and size for each subtitle string. In addition, you can specify the colors of individual subtitles within DVDit Pro. You may prefer to combine both methods by first importing script files, then editing individual subtitles in DVDit Pro.
