    What do you convert with?

    It's very difficult to get sharp/good looking sub/idx image subtitles.

  7. Whatever program is doing the video rendering is responsible for the look of SRT subtitles. Just change the font in that software, if you can.

  8. You don't mention the resolution of those idx/sub. While it's hard to get good looking idx/sub at SD they may look fairly good at HD. (And your's indicate 1280x544)

  10. First I was searching "How to synchronise .idx/sub subtitles"
    I found Edit idx file in notepad "Write:
    delay hh:mm: second:millisecond
    before the "timestamp" .I tried I was successful .
    From there I got idea that we can change idx/sub settings too.
    so now if we could change idx file settings so they look the subtitles shown in the picture or if there is software which convert srt to idx/sub beautiful subtitles it will be Good ...
    I was thing people here , will have experience in idx/sub editing techniques .... but now I think I was worng

    Keep trying "Giving idx subtitles look like sup/PGS subtitles"

    Nope, you're wrong. IDX/SUB files are graphics-based and can't be edited for such things as fonts. You have to begin with text-based subs, preferably ones for which you can choose the styles (ASS and SSA), or a subtitle-making program that allows you to define the styles you want. I use SSA subs in DVDMaestro to make DVD subtitles, but there are other ways to do it. I have no idea what the fellow used for The Hobbit movie, but it shouldn't be that hard to make similar-looking subs.

    He may have used a Helvetica font, but others know better than I, and it's a commercial font and I don't have it installed. I made a quick SSA using Verdana which might do for you:

  12. No,,,,
    these look like simple srt Subtitles
    I want these fonts:"We'll be hunted down before we ever get to the forest"

    I think these fonts are "arial" and are stretched on both left and right hand side...???

  13. Which fonts are used in bluray subtitles like in the pictures I have shared ???

    Hardly, but okay, if you don't like them, that's fine. But...
    ...and are stretched on both left and right hand side...???
    Which is why I don't like them. The round letters aren't round. But to each his own. You could always buy the Blu-Ray if you want subtitles like Blu-Ray subtitles.

    I cheated. I 'squeezed' the picture first, added the subs, and then 'unsqueezed' the picture. Maybe someone that knows more about subtitle fonts than I will see the thread and suggest one. Me, I like Tahoma and haven't ever felt the need to look around. In addition, I expect studio subtitles are proprietary and won't be easily found, although you might be able to find something similar.
    Wow what an answer bro !!!
    I know, silly me. Why buy something when it can be downloaded for nothing?

    I suspect the subs have been 'stretched' at some point and they don't look like that in the real Blu-Ray. Just a guess.
    I first converted it to .sup with tsmuxer 2.6.12 and then I convert .sup to idx/sub with bdsup2sub.
    If somewhere in that 2-step process you can set an aspect ratio, you might try that. It looks to me like 1:1 subtitles may have been stretched to 16:9. I believe you can also set an aspect ratio in the IDX. Open it in Notepad and look around the top part. There's no guarantee, though, your player will respect it.

  20. I only have DVDs to play with. I extracted the VobSubs and experimented. Since you have different subs the numbers won't be the same but once you have a good setting, it should work for all. You have to both widen the subs (Image Scaling) and recenter them (Origin, relative...).

    Here's how I changed mine, although yours will be different, followed by a before and after of the subs:

    # Original frame size
    size: 720x480

    # Origin, relative to the upper-left corner, can be overloaded by aligment
    org: -180, 0

    # Image scaling (hor,ver), origin is at the upper-left corner or at the alignment coord (x, y)
    scale: 150%, 100%

    # Alpha blending
    alpha: 100%

  21. Scale.

    But editing the idx is not an universal solution. While some players (VLC) will use it while rendering then in other, eg DVD authoring it's not used.

  23. How To Hardmux .sup with mp4 and mkv
    If you mean hardcode: Mux the sup and video with MKVMergeGUI. Use Vidcoder / Handbreak.

  24. I have done that
    but still vlc and mhc not playing subtitles like sup they play like simple .srt ???

  25. ike sup they play like simple .srt ???
    Yes?

    You use Calibri as font in easySUP which is very similar to the default font in VLC, Ariel, so they look similar?

    If you want "squeeze-stretch" as manono above you should probably use an avisynth script. Something like

    Code:
    # Just to show you'll need VSFilter
    LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\vsfilter.dll") 
    # Load video
    DirectShowSource("C:\Video.mp4") 
    # squeze it
    Spline16Resize(864,720)  
    # Hardcode subs
    TextSub("C:\Video.srt") 
    # Stretch video
    Spline16Resize(1280,720)
    Avisynth has the SupTitle.dll plugin for use with sup.

  26. Now , I think I should not have tasted/tested pgs subtitles I should stick with srt subtitles
    Quote Quote  
  27. Or perhaps better yet: ASS

    Besides you choose the font for a player to use instead of relying on the players default for SRT it has a ScaleX, ScaleY if you need that.

  28. if I harcode .srt subs with mp4/mkv
    will it work on smartphones like Samsung galaxy phones / apple???
    have u any experience???

  29. When you hardcode subs they become part of the picture. So, of course, the subs will appear on any device that can play the video.
