subtitles burned to video

Post by j00 » Sun Jul 23, 2006 4:55 pm

- I add videofile.avi to mediacoder.
- from "text" tab I add subtitlefile.sub
- container avi, video format xvid, audio mp3.

transcode 1pass with bitrate control set to "disabled" -->subtitles are burned nicely to video.

transcode 2pass with bitrate control set to "adjust by video motion" -->no subtitles in final video. If I click "time" tab and set end position to 2 minutes for example, it works! When I transcode whole file: no luck again.

However, it worked once, but the next file with same settings-->again, no subtitles
----

EDIT:
I tried to set end time so that 1 second from the end will not be transcoded. --> no subtitles :(
If I set end time so it transcodes just few minutes beginning-->it works
Very strange..

EDIT2:
Ok, this is 2nd time I got it to work. This time I had set "target format mode" to "private settings". I don't know if this had anything to do with this problem. I will try again same way and see what happens..

The problem still exists, even if target format is set to private setting. I don't have a clue what causes this.


So Information I have so far:

- Sometimes subtitles are burned in final converted video, sometimes they are not.
- if I convert same file with same settings, the result is random.
- problem happens only in 2-pass mode!
- If I preview source file, subtitles always work.
- I am using 0.5.0 build 2338 right now (tried also 0.39)

EDIT: I updated information..
