Subtitles in Encore CS5

Jun 11, 2010 3:34 PM

Question...

 

When I check my project, I'm informed of a problem with my subtitles being too close in my Subtitle Track. Is there any way I can find out which lines are the offending lines? Or If I re-do these tracks, what are the minimums for durations so I don't go under them.

 

Thanks

    What is the exact syntax of the error. There are a couple, IIRC, that sort of sound alike, but have differences.

     

    One has more to do with the Duration of the Subtitles, while another has more to do with the length of the Subtitles.

     

    Good luck,

    Hi,

     

    The gap between two subtitle clip should be more than 4 frames for Blu ray.

    If the gap is less than 4 frames then you may get this error in check project.

     

    Thanks,

    What makes this especially frustrating is that it's unique to Encore, and not a limitation of the BD spec.

    I have exact the same error message.

    When I neglect it, there is error, when Encore tries to burn the disk or image; it says:

     

    "invalid format", code 13;

    errors in some pg's: end time of preceeding display set is too close to the start time of succeeding display set."

     

    I need this, because the subtitles are a translation of a interview in the film.

     

    What is especially frustrating is, that it works in SD for DVD with the same subtitle.txt file.

     

    Is this a restriction of the BluRay - format?

    Or is there a  workaround for this?

     

    Thanks in advance

    Kevin

    I just wanted to say thank you to Pankaj Gauba. :-)

     

    Your solution worked for me.

     

    I just used 2-line-subtitles on certain parts, and it worked as a workaround.

    The gap between subtitles needs to be at least 5 frames for BluRay. This doesn't apply to DVD.

    I've only seen this issue with Encore, and cannot fathom why this would be an issue. It's not a BluRay spec thing and it makes watching a movie with subtitles authored on Encore mildly annoying.

    If this happens in CS6, right-click on the subtitle track and select Fix Gaps.
