I'm trying to convert a MKV video to DV and burn in a subtitle at the same time.
I have tried doing it using SUPER and it worked well, the only problem was that I couldn't choose any bitrate other than 29xxx kbps which take way too much space. Is the bitrate option always grayed out when using super and outputting as DV or was it just something on my end?
Anyways, I'm looking for another way to do it and am left clueless. I have looked a bit at virtualdub but it doesn't seem to support mkv properly. Does anyone know any program/way to convert an MKV video to DV and burning in a subtitle? (I have to burn in the subtitles, it's not an option).
Thanks for reading.
edit: I'm hoping it can be done in one step, and not 1.Convert MKV to DV, 2.Re-encode with subtitle

Thread: MKV to DV + subtitle
One hour of footage becomes over 104 GB excluding audio (29000 kbps <), is that the standard bitrate for DV or did I do something wrong? It's ridiculously large.

looks like you made a mistake when choosing the compressor. DVavi is 13/GB an hour. what you have is probably uncompressed video. try the free mediainfo on the file to give you a better idea what it is.--

To confirm, DV will be around 13GB per hour no matter what, there is no way to reduce it's size?
I'll try XviD4PSP, thanks for the advice.
Does anyone have some tips to produce non-choppy DV outputs? I tried super and it's choppy in the same part of the video on all renders. The framerate is native.
