There are various options regarding subtitles that DVDSubEdit offers: repositioning vertically or horizontally, changing color and transparency, hiding them entirely, resynchronizing subtitles with video by changing the start time and the duration, and matching subtitles to various display modes: 4:3, letterbox, widescreen, etc.
Another feature of DVDSubEdit is running optical character recognition or OCR algorithm on subtitles, which allows you to modify and export them in the SRT format. Moreover, you can eliminate unwanted subtitle parts, such as information for people with hearing difficulties or typos. Once again, you don’t need re-authoring to do this.
Besides exporting subtitles to the popular SRT format, you can create SUP subtitles and save individual subtitles as PPM. If you are not satisfied with DVDSubEdit’s customization options, you can use external graphic editing applications and modify the subtitle within the VOB file.
A major advantage of DVDSubEdit is its portability. The application doesn’t need to be installed and it won’t modify your Windows registry. You just have to keep the executable file on your local disc or any memory device and run it whenever you need it.
Another plus for DVDSubEdit is the simple, intuitive interface, displaying the most important options in the main window: opening VOB files, selecting subpics, changing their options and the aspect ratio, etc.
DVDSubEdit saves a lot of time and effort whenever you want to modify the properties of a subtitle embedded in a VOB file or to correct typos without re-authoring the DVD files.
DVDSubEdit can also be used to modify button highlights.
