Sefy's Complete DVD Backup Guide v2.6
Using - SubRip

This program can extract Subtitles/Subpictures from a DVD Movie into various formats which can later be encoded into the new encoded movie

NOTE: This section of the guide follows the example of "Doom9's Multiple audio tracks in a SVCD and subtitles" guide!
NOTE: The version of SubRip used here is a "Sequel" to the original created by Brian, you can download the new version HERE!

Step 1(a/b/c/d/e) - Click on "File" and select "Open VOB(s)", then click on "Open IFO" and open your movie's IFO file. Now select the language you wish to create Subtitles for. Under "Action" select "Save SubPictures as BMP" and make sure "TC & Res" in the "Options" are selected. Now click on "Start" and write a filename. (* Example: ENG for English, incase you want to create several languages! *)

Step 2(a/b/c/d) - As soon as the program starts, you will get a popup window, here you select the "Preset" of your Subtitles, for this example i've selected I-Author. In the "Cropping" category make sure to select "Bottom" under the "Vertical Alignment" so the subtitles don't appear on top of your movie. In the "Positioning" categiry, select "Allow BMP position change" and set to "Keep original position" when you are done, click on "OK" to begin.
