Add Subtitles to DVDs using DVDStudioPro


Adding subtitles to a DVD you create in DVDStudioPro/Encore is not fun.  DVDStudioPro includes a subtitle editor but the process of using it is painfully slow.  The process: you create a subtitle block, set the in/out timecode points, check the sync, then move onto the next subtitle block. We just did the subtitling for a 20-minute DVD – it contained 316 subtitle blocks!


A better and more cost effective way is for you to FTP us your videos in mp4 (320/24), we create a STL subtitle file which you import onto the S1 subtitle track. You still have to make minor adjustments to some of the text blocks. You have the same options as if you had manually created the subtitles; font, font size, color, position, and timecode in/out points.



$4 per minute of video; client supplies mp4 and we create the STL file.

Minimum of $15 per file. Includes transcribing.


“VHS/DVD videos used in the Classroom”


This unique college/university service was designed to make existing VHS/DVD videos in your school’s library accessible to a deaf/hoh student. Client sends us a non-captioned VHS/DVD video and we return it unaltered plus an open-captioned DVD.


Cost is $3 per video minute which includes transcribing, videotape; add $15 for shipping. 

Thus, a 30-minute video is exactly $105 ($3 times 30 plus $15).
