Subtitle Xtractor extracts subtitles from DVD Studio Pro 4.x* Disc- or Track itemdescriptions (*.dspDisc, *.dspTrack) and converts it into STL format (Spruce Technologies subtitle format).
Actually, it’s not a good idea to put subtitles into DVD Studio Pro* directly. A workflow with external subtitle files becomes substantially more flexible, e.g. in the STL format.
Subtitle Xtractor detects nearly all STL commands: $FontName, $ColorIndex1, $ColorIndex2 $ColorIndex3, $ColorIndex4, $TextContrast, $Outline1Contrast, $Outline2Contrast, $BackgroundContrast, $HorzAlign, $VertAlign, $XOffset, $YOffset, $ForceDisplay, $FadeIn, $FadeOut, $TapeOffset.
If a subtitle clip contains a graphic, then it is detected by Subtitle Xtractor. The absolute path of the grahic is written into the STL file.
The fontsize is not clearly detected. Normaly the size of the first character in the first subtitle clip will be taken. If a subtitle clip uses different font sizes, then these formatting information will be lost.
