When adding SRT subs to a DVD project, the process fails during sub conversion. The destination directory ends up with a 0KB <name>.sup file. This is reproducible, so please let me know what other details are needed.

I have attached a log file from AVStoDVD, the project file, and the SRT file used (this also happens with other movies and .srt subs).

    Subtitles in SRT format

    I suspect I know what the problem is. The SRT creator I use (SubRip) allows multiple lines of text after a timecode. The SRT example file provided with SubtitleCreator does not have any line breaks between text. I believe SubtitleCreator may be unable to read SRT subs with line breaks between text. If this is the case, AVStoDVD is not at fault.

    The last suggestion is not the problem. It turns out SubtitleCreator does not support unicode .srt files. It can read the subs.srt attached to this report only after converting to ANSI.

    Hi Matt,

    thanks for the report. I will add a reminder to the help file about SRT subtitles format (ANSI and not UNICODE).
    This tracked bug has to be considered closed.

    Bye
