NEW VERSION 2.2 / 2.3 RC1

SubtitleCreator allows you to convert subtitle files to the binary format expected by DVD authoring tools such as Muxman, IfoEdit or ReJig. Create and add your own subtitles to a DVD. In many ways, SubtitleCreator is similar to Srt2sup, but it is faster, uses the IFO color palette, has new synchronization features, and is easier to use. srt2sup, srttosup, srt to sup, sup2srt, suptosrt, sup to srt. Requires .net framework.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Version 2.3rc1:
New features:
* Finish translation was added by Ropsi
* Added a snapshot feature (frame grabber), so you can take a snapshot of the DVD (including subtitles)
* It's now possible to specify the color and (semi)transparency per subtitle: transparency is no longer on/off, but can take a value between 0 (transparent) and 15 (opaque)
* You can import external images (GIF or PNG, (semi-)transparent): the images can be imported using the <p>ImageName.png</p> tags. Since regular subtitles may only contain four colours, the images may look different, since the colors will be mapped to the four most useful colors in the current palette. So changing the palette may give different results too.
* You can mix and match subtitle sources, e.g. combine a SUP file with several images and regular text. When you save it to an SRT file, all SUPs and images will be saved as images.
* You can overrule not only the subtitle position (which was already possible), but also the color and transparency. The syntax is as follows:
<w x,y,width,#Lines ci=b,f,o,a,k t=b,f,o,a />
where the first part denotes the position of the subtitle area, ci is the color index in the current palette for background, foreground, outline, antialias, and karaoke, and t its transparency.
Note that the ci... part is optional, and that the height of the subtitle area is expressed as a number of lines in the current font.
* Added an option (Format|Render method|Drop shadow) to draw subtitles with a semi-transparent drop shadow
* Added opening binary subtitles inside the main window: basically, this makes the Manipulate SUP window superfluous.
* Added support for Drag-Drop of *.idx and *.sup files. Added support for Drag-Drop of color palette (in the color box).
* Minor improvement to the title display, so that the first and last part is always retained

Bug fixes:
* Fixed a remaining bug of the SRT to SUP conversion. When SC was generating a Subtitle with a solid background, the top left pixel was not set to the right color. This should be OK now.
* The Help->Manual command is working with Acrobat Reader 8.
* Restored the possibility to generate overlapping subtitles i.e. subtitles that have an infinite duration when the end time of one subtitles is equal to the start time of the next one OR better when the end time is 0, as was possible with version 2.1.
* Added the possibility to open SUP files where some SubPics have no STP_DSP, and show them having an end time of 0. This allows to conserve this information and write it again when saving the subtitle file.
* Fixed a bug in Google translate - still didn't protect against too frequent querries, causing Google to consider SC an automatic virus or something like that.
* Fixed HD-SUP reading bugs : see and for details of the bugs.
* Fixed an out of memory exception bug that occured when opening HD-SUP files thanks to the help of Wackyphill. Had to add a Gc.Collect(). Bug description here:
* Fixed a bug : when adding a negative delay (.srt and .sup files) there was an exception. See following thread:
* Fixed MRU bug : When opening a subtitle (srt) that SC finds corrupt, there is an exception but sometimes the subtitle is put in the MRU (Most Recently Used) list. When subsequently opening SC there always occurs an exception, bec. SC was trying to open this same file. This version of SC fixes this bug. Now the corrupt file is removed from the MRU list at the next opening.
* Fixed a long subtitle bug: when filling a whole page with subtitle text, the memory buffer was too small, causing the memorywriter to crash.
* Fixed a bug when using the DVD wizard across different hard disks
* In case of languages without spaces, e.g. Chinese, I split the string at a point without spaces.
* When opening SUP files that have more than 1 SP_DCSQT, only the first one is used. This enhances the compatibility with DVDSupEncode. See following message for details about the solved problem:

Just a quick update on my previous comment. Apparently 2.2.2 is OLDER than v2.2. v2.2 is the final version and v2.2.2 is the second beta and a few months older.

Still... get v2.2 not 2.3.

This is just not 'ready' software. I know it's no longer being made, but this version is hopelessly obtuse = hard to figure out. The wording is not clear and the commands and functions seem to be placed randomly. It is impossible to use this to set the color or font of subtitles with any certainty. The functions seem to be there, but don't really work - or at best sometimes work. There are profiles, but seem not to be what actually is eventually on the DVD.

The only thing this has going for it is the DVD wizard, which works pretty well. Though you must download 3 other apps and map them first.

It also works fairly well for timing subtitles, though again, it's not intuitive or reliable (you must try several time to get it to work properly).

Good program. A shame that development stopped but still worth using.
Some important notes:
Cannot handle UTF-8 srt files. You must save as ANSI.
v2.3 RC1 posted here is buggy, v2.2.2 was the last stable version.

I still use this all the time. One of the best quality srt to sup converting programs.

I haven't used many features but the synch tools solved a big headache running subtitles made for PAL DVDs on AVI files from NTSC video. I would have never thought subtitles had any concern with frame-rate as they are time-stamped, but by if I wasn't constantly adjusting the subtitle delay, they would end up displaying minutes in front of the audio by the end of the video... this tool fixed it in a few clicks!

It didn't work at all.
There are other programs that work and do what they are supposed to do.
This one is a trash.

This program already has subtitle positioning thing going, but totally ignores SSA/ASS? It's a de facto standard these days. Come on.

Potentially this would be good, was more intuitive. Didn't require the dot net bloatware (which has nothing to do with security, nor is part of xp) and had an interface which fit on the screen, and could display subtitles over the video when you have mpeg2 codecs installed.

I don't know if anyone else needed a solution to this problem ... .sub file with no .idx file.... you need it for ConverXtodvd.

This did it easily... thanks.

This is the very worst piece of trashware that I've ever tried to install ! First it demands net framework which is a huge set of additions to registry etc., Then it complains that I don't have k-lite codec pack. When I install that it demands that I remove DivX and other codecs, which I do though it make me very uncomfortable since DivX is used by many movies.

And after all that crap it STILL refuses to load the DVD !!

If you are in high need of a REAL pain in the @$$ try to install this !

In reply to vanderbog, I wanted to let you know that:
*SubtitleCreator already allows the user to open an IFO file to read the color palette of the original DVD.
*There are several synchronizing options available: you can use a ripped subtitle to synchronize your new one, you can sync directly with your DVD, you can add a delay, you can change the frame frequency, you can also preview your sub on top of your DVD.
*Next version (2.1) will allow you to open/generate VobSub (sub/idx) files.

Excelent tool, really usefull !
The greatest addition to it is the DVD wizard, which allows you to add a subtitle to a dvd in just one step. It would be really great though to have the option to select an ifo file for the collors.
Another very good thing to add would be a video sync option.
But overall it's the best subtitle tool I used.

Very easy to use and like the way most things can be done by keyboard short cuts. It's idiot proof and fast.
Specially like the sychronisation function, the frame rate convertor is the best one I used so far.

I can tell you that I've fixed the bug mentioned above, especially the one where you got bad pixels, and I have made it open source as well. Therefore, the link above now refers to Please also give the advanced synchronization a try - it allows you to synchronize using an original subtitle by linking a few lines! The download package on sourceforge also contains a user guide, and an explanation how to use the tool in combination with DVDShrink, IfoEdit and VobEdit.

While I am writing this, fineteyoda is trying to create a C++ version as well, in which case you wouldn't need the .NET framework anymore (although this now comes as part of Win XP SP2, which you should install anyways for security reasons).

SubtitleCreator 1.0 is much better than either Srt2Sup a4.03 or DVDSupTools 1.6. Its main advantages are that it shows you exactly what the subtitles will look like before you create the sup and that you can switch and mix among italic, bold and underlined text.

Its only negatives are that there may be an occasional misplaced pixel giving some text characters a slightly rough appearance and that you must install Microsoft's .NET Framework in order to run the application.

Used along with SubRip 1.17.1, Subtitle Workshop 2.51, SupRemap a4.04 and Subtitle Tuner 1.0, you will have all the tools needed to make ultraprofessional subtitles.

Good alternative to SRT2SUP. Faster, better rendering, more options and functionnality.
But too many fatal bugs yet and some extra pixel on generated subtitles.
I can't wait for a 2.0 version ! This will be the best SUP generator ever.
