VobBlanker doesn't support interleaved DVDs. You'll have to remove one of the angles. Apparently you have 2 or more different presentations? Maybe a theatrical cut and director's cut, something like that, in the same DVD?
It's just about impossible to add subs to that kind.
Yes, my dvd have theatrical cut and director's cut version.
This is an excellent guide and I use it regularly.
I'm facing for the first time this problem:
I have a DVD that has 2 movies in it, and so i have 2 subtitles as well that I want to add.
Is this possible?
(maybe it's the same problem with the guy's above?)
yes, i always follow method 2.
but how you put in Muxman 2 different m2v files, wih 2 different audio files, and 2 different sup files?
You must create a "new segment" in Muxman for the 2nd movie?
and i guess, you must put them in the same order too, right?
eg. if movie A is in the VTS_1 batch of files, and movie B is in the VTS_2 batch of files, you should put them as Segment 1 & 2 respectively. not the other way around. right?

M2V1, Audio1, Celltimes.txt1, SUP1 = 1st DVD
M2V2, Audio2, Celltimes.txt2, SUP2 = 2nd DVD
You'll get two 'mini-DVDs' from Muxman, and you then replace them in your original DVD using VobBlanker, replacing each title with the correct Muxman authored DVD. If your two movies aren't two separate titles to begin with, then you created them incorrectly.
hmmm..a bit confusing..
so, i guess the "new segment" process doesn't work.
So, i output to 2 seperate folders in muxman? if i do that i guess 2 batches of VTS_01 files will be created.
Will I have to rename the 2nd mini-DVD to VTS_02_01, VTS_02_1 , VTS_02_3 etc., so that there is no conflict with the first mini-DVD?
I guess there isn't a step by step guide for the whole process of subtitlting 2 movies in a DVD, right?
Use Muxman on the assets (audio, video, subs, cells) of each title/movie. You'll wind up with 2 folders each with a movie DVD to which subtitles have been added. Maybe name the folder with one movie as Movie1 and the other Movie2. When you go to make the Muxman DVDs, it'll create a VIDEO_TS folder within Movie1, and later another within Movie2.
After doing that and after opening the original DVD in VobBlanker you should see 2 different movies there, either 2 titles within the same VTS, or 2 different VTS's, each with a single title. Click on the VTS's in the top window so they show in the lower window so you can see how it's been created. Maybe open the original DVD in VobBlanker right now just so you can see how it's organized. Then it should become clear. Maybe post a picture of what you see in there.

I have tried both methods with the same peculiar problem. Final DVD looks perfect on my computer but on my home systems the image is slightly cropped/zoomed on all sides, ugly and rendering subs unreadable.
Subcreator seems set right (NTSC) and no matter matter how I tweek it on my home system players/tv's, the disc plays weird. The disc is Illusion Travels By Streetcar (with Nazrin on the flipside), by Lions Gate.
This topic is about adding new subtitles to a an existing DVD without reconvert any video or audio and keep the original menus. So if you don't have a DVD or DVD Folder with ifo, vob .bup files this topic isn't for your problem.
If your object to to create a DVD with subtitles you can use one of the All In One DVD Converters that supports adding subtitles or one of the Authoring (DVD) tools that supports adding subtitles.

Ok I dont really know what Im doing but I have a Japanese movie that I really wanted to fix the subs on, using the DVDs already existing subs. I was following the guide that Baldric posted on this thread and downloaded all the necessary tools.
I ripped the DVD through a DVD decrypter, went through the PgcDemux Im pretty sure successfully, ( I did exactly what he said, following the pics ) but when I got to getting it all on Subtitle Creator I got stuck. Like I said Im not really smart when it comes to this stuff so I need detailed instructions like where to click and what to click.
I cant seem to get the subtitles from the DVD into Subtitle Creator. Going into Subtitle Creator I followed the instructions, clicked on 'file', went to open subtitles, went to Video_TS expecting to find VTS_01_01.IFO but it wasnt there. So how am I suppose to open up the subtitles in Subtitle Creator if it isnt there? Im probably doing something wrong but I dont know what?
I really appreciate Baldrics help on this so far but like I said Im not real good with this stuff and I dont understand everything he is saying or where to go for the next step? Can someone please take pity on me and kindly explain in ENGLISH what to do? It would be great if I could get help step by step through to the end.
PGCDemux gave you. However, for editing subs you'll have to OCR them first - convert those graphic images of a SUP file or VobSubs to text-based subs. The guide isn't about that but assumes you already have text-based SRT subtitles ready to be put into the DVD. Here's Baldrick's guide for converting DVD subtitles to SRT subs using a couple of different methods:
Once you have the SRT text subs, then you can edit and after that follow the guide for putting them back into the DVD.
Thanks Manono, I got through subrip successfully but heres the thing Im trying to just use the DVDs original subs and I wanted to fix them. Its a japanese movie and the subs it has already are pretty decent but there are some typos that needed fixing. So I went through subrip, converted them to srt file, and got them into SubtitleCreator. I know you said you dont use that program but now I cant figure out how to change the already existing subs. Does Subtitle Creator allow you to do that or is it only for making brand new subs? Dont wanna change font, color, or anything like that and I definitely dont wanna make new subs. Just change the typos and some wording of the original? And I dont wanna mess up the menu or anything else on the DVD.
I was following your thread on How do I edit DVD Subtitles? Cause I noticed you said you do this all the time. So do you have a better program for this?And if so can you explain how you do this.
I was hoping you would be the one to reply to me cause Ive been reading all your other threads and to someone who has absolutely no idea what shes doing, you make some sense. If you can please explain with pics those help me alot.
SubtitleCreator doesn't allow for editing the SUP or VobSub graphic image files. If you insist on doing that, then you can do it using DVDSubEdit. Open the 'Full Domain' (Open the first VOB and the rest will be added automatically). Find a sub you want to edit and go File->Edit subpic bitmap with external tool. Take it and do what you like with it. Then stick it back into the DVD with File->Replace current subpic with BMP file. Do it to the rest and finally File->Save all modifications. You'll find all the gory details in section 4.2 of the very good user manual to DVDSubEdit:
So do you have a better program for this?
I have no hesitation about choosing my own colors, sizes, fonts, positions, etc, for DVD subtitles, and getting rid of the ones it came with. I use SSA subs (which can set all those things), and feed them into MaestroSBT for making SST subs for later authoring with Muxman.[/QUOTE]
Would you recommend me using this step? Considering I may have to change some wording, making a sentence longer or shorter or a having to use a smaller font size? What are SSA subs? And after going through DVDSubEdit to I continue to follow Baldricks guide? Do I continue going through his procedure for Muxman, Vobblanker, and Ifoedit?
I totally agree! I dont know how to walk much less run with this stuff, I personally never thought Id be doing something like this but this movie is a favorite of mine and I want the viewing experience to be good. So its worth trying.
Thanks a bunch for your patience!

Who knows, maybe you'll find the whole thing a breeze.
DVDSubEdit way you're done - edited subs, same video, menus, and everything else. Read that section 4.2 I mentioned and you'll see.
Its me again, got into DVDsubedit and started opening the VOB files but I got this message "VTS_01_1.vob is a read only file, you will not be able to save any changes."
Why am I getting this message? And what can I do to fix it?

Another question, how do I get the Character Matrix and the srt. file into DVDSubEdit? Still having trouble getting that and the VOB files successfully opened in DVDSubEdit.
Sorry about all the questions. I know I sound really dumb but like I said Ive never done this before. Wanna make sure Im doing all the steps right.
SubRip or an OCR if you're just working with the DVD subtitles. All you have to do is follow the instructions in that section 4.2 of the guide. But you do have to be able to 'Open full domain', meaning all the VOBs.
Hey I figured out that I forgot to take the movie out of the computer I`m embarrassed! Anyway so I got my subpic on a bmp file and modified it in photoshop but now I cant seem to get it opened up in dvdsubedit. Do I need to save it somewhere specific for it to open? Also I cant change ANY of the font color in the external tool right? It has to be done in Dvdsubedit?

Is there a way to outline your subs in black within DVDsubedit? I am using the IFO CLUT and my subs look fine but I would feel a whole lot better about them if there were outlined. Especially against a bright video background this would help alot? Is there a way to do this?
I am using the original subs but am having to fix and change some wording. When I edit them in photoshop the font has to change cause the original isnt available. The original did have a black outline, so putting back into dvdsubedit they no longer look the same. I played with the colors a bit using the IFO CLUT and got them to where they are visible but the outline is no longer there.
If theres no way to fix this I think they will be ok as they are but they would be better with an outline. Thanks for your help. I really couldn`t have done this without your guidence.
Oh, now I understand. It's just your edited sub BMPs that don't have the outline. Then you'll have to add it in. I have no idea how to do that as I don't edit BMPs. Photoshop doesn't have the ability to add an outline however many pixels thick you might want? If not and since you've found the font, I don't know why you don't just OCR all the subs and use that font with an outline added. Some subtitle formats (SSA and ASS) have the ability to add any kind of an outline you might like. I use SSA and make SST subs with outlines (and anti-aliasing) using whatever font I like, and can choose the size, position, etc. for use in MaestroSBT. Maybe the same can be done in SubtitleCreator with SRTs as input. I don't know.
I do think, though, that even those few edited subs should be as similar to the rest as possible (should have the outline) or they'll stand out and look amateurish.
