Please see my home page for hints & tips on using Srt2Sup!
I am looking to rewrite Srt2Sup and merge in the functionality of SupRemap. It will have many of the features that have been requested like text attributes (bold, italic etc) selectable fonts and colours, command line processing and much more!
To assist with this redevelopment I ask you to make a small donation, Thank You!
Srt2Sup a4.03 – ReadMe D0-2 01/09/2003
corresponds to two different types of file name:
allows you to take SRT files (or start from scratch) and create a SUP file for
adding/changing subtitles on a DVD. This will not be of interest to you unless
you have a DVD burner or keep DVD images on your hard drive. If you want to
create subtitles for DivX movies or SVCDs there are lots of other applications
to do that. You could use this program to create foreign subtitles for movies
that do not have them. As long as you have a True Type Font that represents your
language it should be OK!
This is a
nice tidy program that uses and INI file not adding lots of crap to your
registry. The only thing that goes in the registry is a file association. It
only puts files in the install directory not all over the place.
Why did I bother?
the application to allow me to correct subtitles on DVD movies that I own and to
add subtitles to DVDs that I have created. This is an alpha release and not
extensively tested, but it works because I have used it with success!
acknowledge the usefulness in the following programs that allowed me to create
C++ Builder V4 & V6
& Nero ImageDrive
thanks to Peter McRice and Mike WDF for all their feedback, alpha
testing, ideas and comments – You have helped to shape the application into
what it is now!
There is a 10K
per subtitle memory leak when loading a S2S file. This may be in the Chilkat XML
library? – Work around is not to keep loading a file except from application
start (saving of files seems to be OK!) and close the application down
periodically. I would not have releases the program until I fixed this problem,
however the requests for updates have been too many not to put out an interim
Please note you
will need to uninstall a2.00 from the control panel before installing this
release. This is not a bug, it is just that a2.00 was built with Borland C++
builder V4 and this version is built with V6.
to a major failure of my hard drive and my backup hard drive at the same time I
have lost the sources for this project. So there will be no further development
until I have the time to recreate the application.
So what do I do?
not going to be a guide on ripping DVD’s or subtitles for that matter, but I
will give you step by step instructions for changing the subtitles on a DVD that
you own. I am expecting you to have experience on using the tools detailed
below. If not there are many good guides available on the web as these are all
Rip the DVD onto the hard drive using SmartRipper, Use stream process and
save to a separate file. Don’t bother with subtitles. You should end up with a
M2V file and say an AC3 file!
Rip the subtitles you want with SubRip. Use the SRT file format and save
as text not bitmaps and make sure you have the extended format with positional
information box checked.
Run SRT2SUP and open the SRT file you just created. You should not need
to play with colours etc. However you may want to change the default font using
the [Settings][Global] menu option
Give the project a title and save it as a S2S file
You can change the look of a single subtitle by unchecking the [Use
global settings] checkbox and changing the settings in the tabbed box above.
This will NOT change the colours used to create that subtitle, these are held in
the global settings.
To edit text or select a different bitmap double click on the subtitle
text/filename in the list. CRLF can be added by using CTRL and Enter.
Amend times, add new subtitles mix bitmaps and text if you really want to
Make sure any subtitles you want exported are checked in the list. For
all click on [ALL].
Save the S2S file after any modifications
Save the SUP file. This may take a while as the text has to rendered and
converted into graphics for the DVD. At the end of the SUP file creation you
will be given the colour settings you will need to enter into the IFO file using
Run IFOEdit and use the DVD Author feature. For picture use the M2V file,
for sound use the AC3 file for subtitles use the SUP file. You can add the
chapters if you saved them previously
When the DVD is created close IFOEdit and run it again. Open the IFO you
have just created (you may need to GetVTS Sectors and then open the IFO file yet
again) and the subtitle colours should all be zeros. Set-up the four colours
using the information you were given by Srt2Sup and SAVE THE FILE!!!
You now have a set of IFO and VOB files that you can burn onto a DVD!
Be warned that most DVD/VOB players do not show timings that match what is in the SRT file. I use Intervideo’s WinDVD and the timings seem to match. PowerDVD and MediaPlayer do not match! You could let me know if you have found a VOB/DVD player that has a matching time sync.
spent a lot of my time creating this application and I hope you find it useful?
It is freeware and you should not have been charged for it. I make no warranties
of any kind express or implied or any statement on it’s fitness for purpose.
contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org with
bug reports and feature requests. I will not answer “how to” questions or
“where can I get” questions. I hope you understand! If you are going to
contact me please tell me the version you are using, if you are PAL or NTSC and
send me your (S2S and/or SUP and/or SRT) files if they would be useful!
for the feedback I have received so far!

I have been told about a nifty little application that is great for syncing subtitles. If you have a DirectShow MPEG2 filter you can even work directly on a VOB file and it creates SRT files ready for Srt2Sup. Get it at:
