We have just finished the development stages of a DVD subtitling
program, as the final component of our captioning center. We are doing
everything on a G5 mac and using the Apple Production Suite. most the
work is being done with the DVD Pro software. Should have our docs done
in a couple of weeks and are more that willing to share.

One thing we have noticed is, and it is a know bug with apple that on
longer DVD captures the audio and subtitles get out of sync. It is
caused by a difference in capture rate (30fps vs 29.97fps) between the
different software components, but if you break the DVD capture up into
smaller segments and make a small timeline adjustment it fixes the

On the windows side we are using Uleads DVD studio but find that the Mac
stuff works so much better.

We have been captioning tapes with CPC captioning software. We are
venturing into the DVD area.

I am looking for recommendations for software to rip so I can get an avi
We will generate the text file
I then will need DVD authoring software
Also if you are doing this what DVD format would you recommend

Any advice recommendations would be greatly appreciated
