Boy, no action in this thread lately.

10,000 BC has subs IN the picture (Warner Bros.).

Anybody watch WATCHMEN? I was curious (before I buy it) if there are subtitles?

I watched it on BD, and I don't think it had any subtitles.

That's a first. Are the subtitles burned-in to the print, or are they electronically-generated?

I was surprised too (because it was a Warner release).
I believe they were burned-in the print (they didn't have that electronic look).

Can you turn the subtitles off, or switch to another language during the subtitled scenes?

Rock N Roller (REGION B) BD

Quote taken from first post...

I have a few questions that some of you might know. I'm planning to go CIH and just want to get a feel for what I'm up against. I don't normally watch films with subtitles, unless they are required in an English release (the reason for this thread).

1. How are subtitles handled in Blu-Ray? Are they always authored directly in the video file itself? Or are they all a separate file that is 'overlayed' on top of the video? Or can it be either (if so, which is most common)??

2. I am using a HTPC for all my blu-ray watching (ripped to mkv+flac). I thought that at least some, if not most, of blu-rays had subtitles as a separate file and were 'overlayed' because there is a section in the mkv+flac guide on how to rip and handle a separate subtitle file. Anyways, I'm just confused here because if players didn't dictate where the subtitles were located...then how can there be different vertical placement of subtitles (some in movie and some below)?? Maybe subtitles that are a separate file and overlayed are always displayed at the bottom (in black bar) and subtitles that are authored in the actual video file would obviously be higher in the video part.

Sorry if this post is confusing, I'm just trying to figure out how the subtitles work in BD. Also wondering if ripping to mkv gives any kind of advantage (maybe its possible to raise up subtitles vertically into the video if they are a separate video file during the rip process??)??

Both. Some are hard coded into the video, others are kept in a PGS track (Presentation Graphics Stream).

I have an HTPC too, and that's what I've done. Use a utility to convert the PGS track to an SRT file, which can then be played back so that the subtitles are within the picture image for those of us with a CIH setup.

Cool. Anymore info or a link to where I can find details how to accomplish this??

Bob, I think you found your answer over on the HTPC forum, no? If not, let me know.

Are any of you interested in taking this thread over? I am a bit pre-occupied with a pesky health problem and I don't make online as often. If anyone is interested, PM me and I will find out how to give you the access to have control over the editing of the first post to add titles, etc.

Thanks folks

Drag Me to Hell Blu-ray. Has a few scenes with foreign dialogue (some Gypsy dialect). Subtitles are CIH safe (Universal release).
