    Thanks, Terrence.
    This info is very enlightening for me. I have some colleagues who are as surprised as I am by this knowledge. It's good news.

    It's a funny thing that in the back of my mind, a little voice was wondering, "Why only hard drives?" I realize now that I was mislead by the people that I've been hanging around with. Since the Academy requires DCPs on hard drives, I (and my producer colleagues) wrongly accepted that the requirement was standard accross the industry.

    Excellent. I just got back from the theater, and UDF 1.5 worked like a charm... although it took a loooooooong time to copy it over for playback. It wasn't quite synced properly, and it was kinda choppy, but that was a poor conversion from 60i on my part. I just wanted to test the ease of use of openDCP and I kinda rushed it lol. Two thumbs up!

    so i need to create same amount of frames in PNG as the clip?
    (is there a way in avisynth to create PNG from *.smi text file or other programs?)
    and then use asdcp-test to create the subtitle MXF
    (i'm a new to asdcp-test what would the command line look like for create subtitle MXF ?)
    and finaly use OpenDCP version 0.15 for "mux"

    thanks for your help
    The overall duration of the subtitle MXF needs to match that of the main picture, but you don't need a PNG file for each frame. You only need 1 PNG file per subtitle and in the XML you give it the in and out time to show each subtitle.

    So a 60 second clip might have a series of lines like (not real syntax)

    <subtitle="1" TimeIn="00:00:05:00" TimeOut="00:00:05:48">subtitle1.png</subtitle>
    <subtitle="2" TimeIn="00:00:10:00" TimeOut="00:00:10:23">subtitle2.png</subtitle>
    <subtitle="3" TimeIn="00:00:30:00" TimeOut="00:00:30:23">subtitle3.png</subtitle>
    <subtitle="4" TimeIn="00:00:60:00" TimeOut="00:00:60:00">subtitle4.png</subtitle>

    I've never created a subtitle track, so I'm just kinda guessing on this stuff a bit.

    Hopefully, OpenDCP made things easier!

    Hello, Peter
    Perhaps I can assist you. I'll include here everything that I know about DCP subtitles. I strongly request that other forum members contribute to this.

    I must say that in my research on the subject, I have found several different versions of the "correct" way to do this. These varying explanations are similar, but sometimes contradictory and confusing as to what is the "exact and proper" way to do it. I have not yet made a DCP myself that includes subtitles, so I have no real experience as to which of all these options really works. I hope that other members here (especially any members who have accompished a finished DCP with subtitles) will add, comment, and correct what I write here so that we can eliminate all the extraneous info to arrive at what actually works on any DCP server.

    I understand that subtitles can be made by either of two methods:
    1. Generated automatically from the .xml on a server that has the Texas Instruments "Cine-Canvas" software
    or (for precise control of subtitle appearance)...
    2. Superimposed by the DCP server from .png image files of each subtitle.

    If not using a Cine-Canvas system...
    The font files referred to in the subtitle XML file must be supplied.
    The PNG files referred to in the subtitle XML file must be supplied.
    1998x1080 PNG files must be supplied in one directory per reel with the XML file.
    PNG file names must include the film title, language, reel number, and title number.
    Ex: "MOVIE_TITLE_English_Reel1_0001.png"

    Here are THREE similar but varying examples of how a good XML file should appear when viewed in a text editor.

    The format of the timecode is Hours:Minutes:Seconds:Ticks
    where a “Tick” is a value of between 0 and 249 and lasts 4 milliseconds.
    The approximate conversion is 1 frame = 10 ticks.

    Optional <Font> attributes:
    Color="FFFFFFFF" Size="28" Id="Font1" Italic="yes" EffectColor="FF000000" Effect="border"

    The file MUST include a valid UUID in the file using the switch <SubtitleID>

    "MOVIETITLE.subtitle.reel1.xml"

    This afternoon, I contacted the Texas Instruments DLP group to request clarification on the "Cine-Canvas" specs and requirements.

    Please take a look at these:
    http://www.rodneyrecor.com/Digital/D...leSpec_XML.pdf
    and
    http://www.rodneyrecor.com/Digital/D...g_Overview.pdf

    Special thanks to Reiner Doetzkies, Kateri Gemperle, and Tony Adamson at Texas Instruments for these docs.

    regards, ~RR
