    Is there a solution for subtitles??

    Sometimes subtitles are baked in the movie. And when there is a part of the movie with no subtitles its scaling up.



    When subtitles is starting again the subtitles are not readible because of frame correction. Its rescaling off course but then you missed some lines of text.
    Rescaling is not smooth btw.

    Sorry for bad english....

    Hi wackid,

    no there is no solution for subtitles at the moment.
    When I have time I'll have a look at it.

    Is cropping overall not smooth or only with the view mode "Non-linear-Stretch"?

    I've installed the 2.02 version and the cropping is smoother now......

    If you can find a solution for subtitles in the future?? Great.

    Now i know why it's not a priority for you..... You're from Germany..... movies with synchronized voices...... :eek: :D

    :D

    Yep, all is very well synchronized here.

    When the first time subtitles appears, press F4 and select snapshot, now IFC turned into the snapshot mode and IFC won't touch the picture until the end of the movie, maybe thats a workaround for your situation.

    Subtitles seems to get detected most of the time. But sometimes they are cropped out and biggest problem here is that there is no easy way to undo the change since movie is cropped even after changing aspect ratio.

    I will try to provide you with good example of video. Basically it's just any video on live TV. Just i need to find one that have really tricky subtitles.

    Maybe for a start, IFC could check black area several times before cropping it since subtitles are appearing and disappearing.

    Update: it seems that most times subtilte cutoff is caused when image is cropped before movie with subtitles and then it's not stretched back when subtitles appear.

    Thanks. You can press F4 and choose "Snapshot" when subtitles appears.

    I think i have good one now. But it's 1,7GB (it was scheduled recording).

    Anyone knows free way to convert and trim this video without cropping or resizing it?

    AW: Subtitles

    Hi,

    good topic here :)

    I have uploaded a 4:3 sample video with hardcoded subs.
    http://rapidshare.com/files/429451749/Aishiteruze_Baby_01.avi

    Is there some way to use SuperStretch without cropping the subs?
    Is there some way to prevent on such videos with hardcodes subs SuperStretch, but on "normal" 4:3 / or with SoftSubs to use SuperStretch?
