  1. So, this question was already posted 1 year ago, but no one got to answer so:
    I got this TV show with such anoying subs I don't know how to fix it. Instead of coming in bunch of two lines and then switch for another two different line dialogue, like it's suppose to be, lines comes by 3, and, a little bit like credit at the end of a movie, the bottom line switch to middle line, then to top line, making the whole thing almost unreadable while watching.

    Thanks and I hope my explanation were clear.

    Here's an example:

    1
    00:00:01,068 --> 00:00:02,568
    PROBST: Previously on

    2
    00:00:02,569 --> 00:00:03,070
    PROBST: Previously on
    <i>Survivor:</i>

    3
    00:00:03,071 --> 00:00:05,271
    PROBST: Previously on
    Survivor:
    There was no food at Rotu, so

    4
    00:00:05,272 --> 00:00:07,340
    Survivor:
    There was no food at Rotu, so
    the tribe competed for the kill.

    5
    00:00:07,341 --> 00:00:08,908
    There was no food at Rotu, so
    the tribe competed for the kill.
    Kathy was the first to find

    6
    00:00:08,909 --> 00:00:09,877
    the tribe competed for the kill.
    Kathy was the first to find
    protein...

    7
    00:00:09,878 --> 00:00:12,078
    Kathy was the first to find
    protein...
    We found thousands of shells!

    8
    00:00:12,079 --> 00:00:13,379
    Protein...
    We found thousands of shells!
    PROBST: and redeemed

    9
    00:00:13,380 --> 00:00:14,647
    We found thousands of shells!
    PROBST: and redeemed
    herself with the tribe.

    Looks like simulated roll-up captions. Does your media file have embedded captions or just the external SRT file?

    EDIT:
    You can fix these in Notepad++ or any text editor with regex search-and-replace. First, fix the three-line titles:

    Code:
    search ((.+\r\n){2})((.+\r\n){2})(.+\r\n)
    replace \1\5
    Then clean up the two-line titles:

    Code:
    search ((.+\r\n){2})(.+\r\n)(.+\r\n)
    replace \1\4

    Thanks for replying, i tried but theres no such tool for fixing that... Apparently theres two type of captions, Roll-up captions AND Pop-up captions, so what im trying to do is convert from roll up to pop up... But i didnt found any tool to do that...sorry for my english

    Search mode should be "Regular expression."
