What this powerful tool does is converting ASCII based text files in the SubRip
’s SRT or SUB format to the binary format supported by DVD authoring tools like IfoEdit
. Thus you will be able to create and add your own subtitles to a DVD.
SubtitleCreator’s conversion options include converting SRT and SUB to SUP files and transforming HD-SUP to standard SUP files.
You can also switch between PAL and NTSC standards.
Subtitles can be synchronized using time shifting, frame rate conversion and the original subtitles, and afterwards you can save the synchronized subtitle file.
A wide range of options is available with SubtitleCreator and you can specify if you want the application to use less or more lines, to automatically wrap lines, to generate bitmaps of the subtitles for you or to remove double spaces.
SubtitleCreator offers numerous other ways of customizing your subtitles: using bold, italics or underline; selecting text size, deselecting subtitles you don’t need, choosing the desired font, joining subtitles, and defining your own shortcuts.
You can also customize SubtitleCreator’s interface, by selecting between different background images and languages.
The last version of SubtitleCreator was released in 2008, and it was improved with various new features: taking snapshots, setting the subtitle transparency level, importing external images, changing the subtitle position, support for binary subtitles inside the main window, and support for the drag and drop functionality with IDX and SUP files.
SubtitleCreator’s complex features recommend it to advanced users, but anyone who is less experienced with similar applications can use this tool due to its intuitive and well-organized interface, as long as they stick to basic editing options.
