  1. Hello guys.
    The MaestroSBT is not providing me the actual appearance of Arial Rounded MT source. Does anyone know why this happens and how to solve? Thanked.

    That's not a very specific description (how does it look different?).

    I suppose maybe the pixel aspect ratio compensation makes you think it's different (wider or taller) but it'll look correct when authored.

    Assuming you have chosen all the "right" settings in the program itself...

    you could give a try to the olde version 2.6.0.0.

    Unless you're already using version 2.6.0.0, of course

  5. I tested the 2.6.0.0 version. Continues in the same situation.

    Did something is misconfigured? I say this because in the past this program to do this properly.

    Maybe you'll have to change the non-SSA properties in the "Edit styles" window......

    FWIW --- I have never used that font (Arial Rounded MT), and besides,
    I stopped authoring DVDs (and using MaestroSBT as well) some years ago

    I say this because in the past this program to do this properly.
    If that's true, then something is interfering with MaestroSBT, making it 'misbehave'......
    maybe an application or a system update you have installed recently,
    maybe the Windows registry has been screwed somehow ---
    --- these are only wild guesses, of course...

  7. I think Skiller was right about his guess that it has to do with aspect ratio. It looks to me like you want the subs to remain more 'slender' where the real appearance is with a 4:3 correction. Notice how in your first picture with the subtitles you like it with an oval 'O', but with a 4:3 correction you get a round 'O'. So, in MaestroSBT change '4:3 correction' to '16:9 correction'. I think that'll do what you want. If they wind up too thin for your taste, then try 'No correction'.

    And, in my opinion, you should really create an anti-alias color.

  8. Is there a similar program, namely that enables me to use the styles .ass subtitle?

  9. What do you think you'll be able to do using ASS subs that you can't when using SSA subs? And don't say the colors because DVD subs are limited to 4 colors, including the background color. But, to answer your question, while there might be programs that accept ASS subs as input for making DVD subs, you won't get to keep the fancy styles you can create for ASS subs. And for less complex styles, SSA subs can do all of them.

  10. Used the DVDLab to achieve the desired appearance, entretando, no matter the option chosen, it is always early or late! It was to have been sincrozidado. What happened?
    Sorry for any errors in spelling, those online translators are not very accurate!

  11. There's no better free subtitle creation program than MaestroSBT. Did you try my suggestion of using a different correction (different from 4:3 correction)?
    Quote Quote  
  12. I tried. Didn't get the look you desire. I've done it all! Maybe this happens only on my PC, is a probability.

    Yes, but the look you 'desire' isn't Arial Rounded MT (Bold). Because how it appears in your '4:3 correction' picture is how it's supposed to look. Maybe you should experiment with a different font. Different people like different fonts. Me, I like Tahoma.

  14. You know tell me what's the name of this font?

  15. Try asking in WhatTheFont.

    What you're showing is italics. You had better ask about the non-italics version.

  16. Verdana is a good alternative, although still prefer Arial Rounded MT. I'll keep trying decobrir why the MaestroSBT not show me the actual appearance of the font. Tested here with Txt2Vobsub program, and obtained success, the problem is that no matter Muxman legend IDX / SUB. Speaking at Muxman, how do I leave the track default caption? I did not find the option to do this!

    You're not making any sense. Of course, Muxman doesn't accept IDX/SUB files. You'll have to convert them to SUP. One way to do that is with SubtitleCreator.
    Speaking at Muxman, how do I leave the track default caption?
    Again, making no sense, not to me anyway. Are you asking how to make a subtitle play automatically? Muxman isn't the program for that. You'll want to open the finished DVD in PGCEdit to make a subtitle play by default. You'll probably want to use that program anyway, to set the final colors.
