. This is for displaying the language at the list of available subtitles in your player, if supported by the player.
: Choose the align between the lines of every subtitle
. Left, center or right.
# Vertical Position (or VP)
: Choose the position (in vertical axis) where the subtitles will be placed. If you have problems to see selected subtitles in the hardware player, experiment with smaller numbers in this option.
# Center At (or CP)
: This options defines the center point of your TV in horizontal axis. It is used for the centering of subtitles. If you found that subtitles are not well centered in your TV then experiment with this option.
# Opaque Background
: When this options is checked an opaque box (in outline color) surrounds the subtitles
# Subtitle Bitmaps
. Choose the first or second choice depending on your TV system, PAL or NTSC
. Please note that this selection provides information to the program on how to construct the bitmaps of the incorporated subtitles. How the subtitles are handled is depended on your player's firmware which can vary a lot. So you can leave the default choice and if you are not getting satisfying results, choose the others. Use custom when subtitles do not appear whatever you do with VP. Play with Width and height to see if you get better results.
# SRT extension
. You can use this option to incorporate many srt files in one avi
in different languages and configurations. This option defines the srt which will be loaded from every tab in the range SUB 1-8. The literal entered there is added to the avi file name after a symbol - (dash). If there is no literal then the dash is not added and the srt has the same file name as the avi. The tabs that carry the same literal in this option load the same srt and so you can use this to incorporate it in various configuration. For example other VP, CP, font, font size, color, etc.
# Full Screen
. When is checked a full screen bitmap is generated for every subtitle in the Width and Height of the above options. If not checked then the generated bitmap is as big as the text it contains. if you find out that you need different VP to keep subtitles appear in the preferred TV position for various AVIs, experiment with this option. Also has been found that some players cannot use full screen subtitle bitmaps. In this case uncheck this option.
# Add Subtitles
. Normal program operation. srt or idx/sub subtitle files are incorporated in the generated file.
# Remove Subtitles
. The generated files it doesn't include any subtitle
existed in the original and no other subtitle file is incorprated. Please note that the program (in its normal operation) always removes any existing subtitles before add the new. This option is useful in cases you want only some other services of the program, like "unpack packed bitstream" or adding chapters or just a file with no subtitles at all.
# Add Test Subtitles
. When checked sample subtitles are generated
. Each of these subtitles remain on TV about three seconds and every time is displayed in a different VP. Starts at VP=100 and increases 50 pixel every time until reach the bottom of the screen, and then starts again. This helps the user, first to know that subtitles can, somehow, appear with his/her player and at which VP.
