Cih subtitle master thread - Page 7

post #181 of 354
I'll be taking over this thread from TSHA222, so could you please supply the following:

1. Title name.
2. Format (BD or DVD or DVHS)
3. Region of the tiltle as it seems that some Region B and C titles differ from A.

Thanks,

Mark

Thanks folks

Hope your health problem works out OK for you. Please check back in whenever you can

Glad to see Mark is willing to continue updating the thread.

Thanks for the well-wishing! It's nothing life threatening but I'd prefer to be fine. Mark is the perfect guy to take care of things. I'm glad the thread can continue to be updated and I hope I can take it back over eventually, but if not, it's in great hands.

Thanks. I've not seen it yet. I just remember chat that was not scope and why I asked.

How many blu-rays have subtitles as part of the image, and how many use raster subtitles?

Subtitles also appear in the 2.40:1 safe area on the "Big Screen Edition" sold at Walmart.

Anyone know if "I've Loved You So Long" with Kristen Scott Thomas has the english subs in the picture? The wife would like to know.

Thanks,

EDIT: Nevermind, I see that it's aspect ratio is 1.85.

Love Actually - Has some Portuguese dialogue. Subtitles are CIH safe.

Blood: The Last Vampire - Most English, has a few scenes with Japanese dialogue. Subtitles are in the letterbox bar. Not CIH safe. Sony has apparently not yet bothered to follow through with their promise to change their subtitle position policy.

I am planning to upgrade my 135" 16:9 to 2.35:1 when I upgrade to an ae4000. I can't seem to find the answer to this question, and I know it is a simple question: when the play/pause/stop/ff/rew etc... buttons are hit, the command shows up on the screen. In my current 16:9 system, PowerDVD 9 from my HTPC places the control symbol in the upper right corner. I know I can move the subtitles around to fit in the screen, but what happens to the control symbols that usually show up outside of the 2.35:1 format, somewhere in the black bars? Thanks.

Your probably going to have to use the 16:9s mode. The projector doesn't know if the screen is 16:9 or Scope, so unless the icon is moveable, yes, they will be in the black bars when you use the Zoom method. The two modes are 16:9 and 16:9s, so the only 'Scope" mode is Zoom 1 which is one of the Scaling modes for CIH when you use an A-Lens. This not only Vertically Stretches the image, it will actually cut off the controls.

Didn't Sony recently do a poll of Blu-ray and DVD purchasers about where to place future subtitles????
If so, they are apparently refusing to accept the results of that poll as I've read reports that both Angels & Demons and Godzilla are not CIH friendly.

Dump PowerDVD and rip all your movies to a media server then play with MPC-HC. There isn't any blu-ray's I haven't been able to move the subs into the safe area.

Yeah, they've not taken any action whatsoever.

Galaxy Quest (Blu-ray). The first scene is 1.33:1 windowboxed into the center of the 2.40:1 image. The movie has about 2 or 3 lines of subtitled alien dialogue inside the picture. Disc is CIH safe.

Anyone know if the english subs for the US Criterion release of Gomorrah are CIH friendly?

Thanks,
Tom
