I recently downloaded this OS. I do have high hopes that this OS can be a stable platform for subtitlers.

Subtitle Delay Solution

leave a comment »

A week ago, we experienced something a bit disturbing in the area of subtitling. We all asked ourselves, why is there a 1 second delay on our subtitling project?

We gathered and consulted the technical team and tried to resolve the issue at once. Everything was reviewed and considered by our team, including the materials used for the whole project.

The problem? Well it’s a bit complicated yet simple in a way. We discovered an anomaly concerning file conversion.

The files used to spot the project is from a WMV format converted to a VCD format. While the final DVD video is not converted from the smaller file.

It is suitable to convert from DVD to VCD and use the same converted file for the whole project.

There are other causes to these delays which I plan to discuss one by one. 

Feel free to comment and share you experience so we can exchange ideas and techniques.
