1.) Den of thieves.... truly amazing
2.) John Wick
X) Ready Player One Artemis gunshots at the Distracted Globe dance club... if you have enough power and the right speakers her gunshots sound incredible
I will share with you my experience with subtitles and combining scenes like this together...
To ensure I have the correct subtitles selected, I usually look for another English subtitle track further down from the first one. Ofttimes you will run into subtitles from the commentary, but I usually check afterward in MPC-HC
Since these forced subtitles are usually for foreign audio tracks, I want to make sure it displays by default, so I use mkvtoolnix
's "Header editor" tab to choose that subtitle and make sure "Default" and "Forced" are both checked.
I will say that you can't really focus on a small time slot for special scenes since it takes a few seconds for the HD audio to kick in, so make sure choose several seconds before your chosen scene to ensure you've encapsulated it entirely.
In the past, I have cut scenes from films with DVDFab
, so choose your preferred program accordingly.
To merge the scenes together with a nice menu with chapters, I use MultiAVCHD
, but I guess you can again use DVDFab
, but I'm not so sure it has the equivalent amount of customization.
And of course, I use Imgburn
to create the disc, if that's the medium I prefer at that time, but I'm sure most people will probably just create a large MKV file.
