PostSubject: [QUES – ANS] How to sub and hardsub videos?   Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:24 pm

This tutorial is for people who are interested in our subbing group but also for anyone who wants to sub videos for their own purpose.

There are multiple ways of doing this, so I’m just going to teach how you how do it with my way. Anyone knows and also contribute to this thread. The way I do it is the most simple and easy way.

First of all you would need to download Subtitle Workshop and Virturaldub. You don’t need to worry about file size for those who have slow internet because both of these files are small size.

Subtitle Workshop: http://www.urusoft.net/downloads.php?lang=1
Virturaldub: http://www.virtualdub.org/download.html

Subtitle Workshop would require you to install while Virturaldub you don’t need to.

So the subbing starts here.

First open Subtitle Workshop, then drag and drop the video you want to sub or just to the menu on the top movie > open. But if your video does not play or only has audio it means the video format/encoding is not suitable for this software and you might need to re-convert it using a video converter software.

Once you got the movie you will have to click on File > New subtitle... This will get you started on subbing.



As you can see in the image above, it's pretty simple to use. You just really have to know the start subtitle and end subtitle button.

While playing the movie above you can pause on the start and end of the subtitle. Just under the movie playing area you'll see the start and end time and you enter the subtitle line on the bottom just like how I show on the image. So you just keep repeating that until you finish subbing the video you want.

You will need to get a hang of this as it's pretty hard to get the timing right. I had so much trouble when I subbed the first video where the timing of the subs are slightly off. But then I've discover a way so that my timing are more accurate. The way is pretty simple since most Taiwanese shows have subtitles so I just follow the subtitles on the bottom.

Of course you also do something fancy like changing the colors or underlining etc. but that's not important. There's probably more things you can do with this software but I'm not going to go into depth about it's up to you to explore and have some fun once you understand the basics.

After you're done you will need to save the subtitle file. Click on File > Save as...
Remember this is only saving the subtitle file and not the whole video with subtitle.

After you click on "save as" you'll see a whole lot of file format pops up. Ignore them all for now because I don't even know all the file format. The one that simple to save is .srt which is SubRip.



Double click on "SubRip" and follow the prompts and save it onto you computer. Here your subtitle file is all done like that.

Time to combine the video and subtitle together!

As the subtitle function is an external plugin so first of all you need to download this file called "textsub.vdf". You can Google it or simple PM me and I can save you time finding it.
Once you got that file, simply paste that file on the "plugin" folder.

Open Virturaldub once you got that done. Drag and drop the video you're going to combine your subtitle with. Again if the video cannot be opened it means Virturaldub does not support the format/encoding of this video. Therefore you will need to re-convert your video file using a video converter software.

When the video is opened you'll see two screen of the video, the left one is the original of the video and the right one shows whatever you have added.

Firstly you want to add the subtitle, so you go to Video > Fliters...

Click on the button Add...

Scroll until you see "textsub". Click on "OK" and you'll see a prompt says "Textsub settings". Click on the "open" button and file your subtitle file. This is what you will get.



If you wish to format how your subtitle looks like (color, margin, font and size) click on the "styles..." button. You can some fun changing how it looks.

After you're done just click on "ok" and on the "fliters" prompt just click "ok". Once that is done you can start playing the video and you can see that the subtitles have appeared.



If you find that the way the subtitle looks is not what you want then you go back to "fliters" and double click on the subtitle and format it.

You can insert multiple subtitle files here. I do that when I have to explain something and I just position the subtitle on the top.

If you're scared that someone might claim your work as their own you add in a logo on the video.
Just go to Video > Fliters... Scroll down until you find "Logo".

The logo would need to be a image file format (jpeg, png, gif etc). As you might know .png and .gif file the background can be transparent but this does not work here.

To get your background transparent (so that you don't have an ugly box logo on your video) you have check all the boxes and insert the logo image again on the Alpha Image section.



Justification is where you want the logo to be, just select one of the position. And you can fiddle with the X and Y offset if you don't want the logo to stick right on the corner. Click "ok" and "ok".

Now you'll see the logo on the right corner.



After you're all done there's one more important thing you have to do otherwise the file you saved will be very large which might be 1GB.

To fix that problem you have to click Video > Compression and select "xvid MPEG-4 Codec".
Once that is done just click on "Ok" and then save your video by clicking on File > Save as AVI.

And there you go! You have just hardsubbed a video!

If you have any other questions feel free to ask me here.

thanks for the tutorial, it's quite a big help ^^

just a few questions:

is vdub supposed to play the two videos at the same time as a preview (both raw and subbed)?
because mine is just playing the raw and only when i stopped "play", I get a still on what the subs look like

also how do you change the font size?

Yes the raw and subbed suppose to play at the same time.
I guess it's because of your video but as long as you can see what you've done and save the file in the end it doesn't matter much.

As for the text format.

You go through the steps of how you add subs, the filters... like shown below.



Click on the styling... button

This will show up.



And I guess you know what to do. It's pretty simple.

Hi.

I've done everything step by step to this tutorial, but I don't understand this:
"Once you got that file, simply paste that file on the "plugin" folder."

What plugin folder exactly? I'm going crazy because every time I open the Vdub application, there's a pop-up saying that it cannot read the vdf file or something like that.

Please help~ Sad

When you go to "Program Files" in your hard drive, the "plugin" folder is in the Vdub folder.
I think that's how it works...maybe also check your vdub edition ^^

where ever you have the virtual dub installed, open the plugins folder. That's where you should put in the .vdf file. Sometimes the vdf file that you've download can be incorrect. Also check the version of your virtualdub, sometimes it's not compatible with the vdf file.

There's different versions of the vdf (i.e. Subtitler.vdf, textsub.vdf and vobsub_vd.vdf)

I think I did get the wrong vdf file because I've already downloaded four different types of Vdub applications and none of them seem to work for that particular file...

But now I've also downloaded three different vdf files and they're all the same...still nothing works... Sad I think I'm about to give up.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Try this: http://www.4shared.com/file/3huvvbRt/textsub.htm

I've also downloaded several different vdf files before... This one works well.

Usually if your videos are in an avi format, should be readable. Also change the title of your file, if it's in english should be able to work. A common converter for videos is AVS Video Converter. Hope this helps.

Hello, I just read your post, I found its tutorial is good. I can sub titles by myself now Smile Now I try to making sub for about 3-4 minutes clip. I found out it does take long time to sub it... I wonder if I sub about 40-45 minutes video (like one episode of the drama), how long does it take to sub it?

45mins is a long video to sub, if you have a reasonable videocard for your computer, it should be okay if you are not doing any other tasks while your computer is running the subbing program. Maybe 30mins I am guessing. If would help if you break the episode down to parts.

When the video is opened you'll see two screen of the video, the left one is the original of the video and the right one shows whatever you have added.

Firstly you want to add the subtitle, so you go to Video > Fliters...

Click on the button Add...

Scroll until you see "textsub". Click on "OK" and you'll see a prompt says "Textsub settings". Click on the "open" button and file your subtitle file. This is what you will get.



 Sad here comes trouble. Everything went smoothly until I reached here. When I tried to load my subtitle file it didn't open. why?? Crying or Very sad by the way It's quite an old post but helping me a lot so I decided to ask and hope for reply too.  Rolling Eyes

Hi Aishi,

sorry for the late reply, the image does not work so I cannot really see the problem, but that being said maybe I can help, make sure it's a text file, try all english first in the file, sometimes chinese encoding might screw it up, hope this helps,


Eva
