  1. Hi Guys,

    Maybe I'm missing something but I can't seem to get my text with timestamps into aegisub properly. I've put a sample below which, when copied in, has the text timestamps as part of the subtitle instead of the time information.

    There are several thousand lines of dialogue, so I'd really rather not have to do it by hand.

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    Sample text:
    ...
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 51.96,0: 07: 53.36, Default ,, 0,0,0,, And the neighbors like?
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 53.36,0: 07: 54.56, Default ,, 0,0,0 ,, Quiet
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 54.56,0: 07: 55.81, Default ,, 0,0,0,, And why are you selling?
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 55.81,0: 07: 56.48, Default ,, 0,0,0,, Divorced
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 56.48,0: 07: 57.45, Default ,, 0,0,0,, Oh .. Excuse me
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 57.45,0: 07: 58.78, Default ,, 0,0,0,, It's okay
    Dialogue: 0.0: 07: 58.78,0: 07: 59.94, Default ,, 0,0,0,, What's next for us?

    The file seems to be corrupted. I'm guessing at this, but:
    1. Find "Dialogue: 0.", replace w/ "Dialogue: 0,"
    2. Remove spaces after the colons: "0: 07: 58" -> "0:07:58"
    3. Copy and paste the file header (text in green below)
    4. Save as *.ssa
    5. Open with Subtitle Edit (AegisSub won't open it)

  3. Thank you so much raffriff42, I tried it after getting home from work and it's turned out very well! After a little further cleaning up it's exactly how it should be.

    All the best!
