Well, from the PVs I saw from Ai otsuka in the Ai's Chatroom , most of them are hardsubbed.

I just do you guys do it?

It can be a long process..... look at for a comprehensive guide.

If you're burning to DVD, it's much easier to use something like ConvertXtoDVD, where you can easily add subtitles (softsubs) and the results are great. Smile

I've never hardsubbed myself. I watch a lot of JDrama and movies, which I burn to DVD for watching. But I always use either files that are already hardsubbed, or use softsubs.

I once used this software, donīt actually know how was it called, but it used VirtualDub DLLs. I tried to install it, than I installed VD, but as I wanted to hardsub it, it told me, that thereīs a missing script in VD. Confused
But if it used VD DLL, maybe VD can do it alone, donīt know, I donīt use this one, I use Sony Vegas or Pinnacle Studios for video editing.

I've been wondering the same thing. I download a movie that said it had hardsubs in it but after finishing downloading parts and combining, there are no subs at all.... Sad I found a file that has subs and it pops up when the video plays but it's not exactly in the video.

So if ANYONE knows how to combine the subs with the video so I can burn it onto DVD, please do share. I'm also wanting to know how to do this, or if there is another easier way to just combine them?

Rokit: then the video you downloaded isn't hardsubbed; it's the softsub you have; maybe the uploader making a mistake here, thought the video was hardsubbed^^

I use VirtubDubMod to do hardsub too, and it just work fine for me^^ there are other software to do hardsub if you have the softsub ready like AVI ReComp, avisub <list, too much to remember^^ find it yourself>

For me, I'm using ConvertXtoDVD to make DVD with switchable subtitles^^

Hope that's help.

I have never used hardsubs, but I have "acquired" a video with them once or twice, and the result, as AnimeDad said, are not as good as softsubs. There is an application called "The Film machine" (which I recently uninstalled Giggle ) that allows burning hard subtitles into a video stream, but that means you have to encode the entire video again (if a film, generally about the same time as the feature running time if using a decent encoder like XViD), whereas softsubs you can just place in the same directory (or elsewhere) and just open the video in VLC or the likes and associate the softsubs with it.

The problem with softsubs is synchronisation, as many video lengths can vary, so I use SubbtitleEdit, which allows you to increase/decrease the time of the entire subtitle file to suit the running time of the desired video.
