Converting Closed Captions to Subtitles

If you’re producing streaming media with closed captions, chances are you’re also producing DVDs using the same content. Obviously, once you’ve produced and synchronized the captions, you’d like to use the same files in your DVD productions. Once again, if you own a broadcast captioning program, start by asking your vendor if you can export DVD-compatible subtitles from their systems.

As I was working with MAGpie, this option wasn’t open to me, so I started hunting around on the Web for a tool that could input closed captioned files, and output subtitle files compatible with the three authoring programs I primarily use, Adobe Encore 1.5, Apple’s DVD Studio Pro 3, and Ulead’s DVD Workshop 2.
