Question 1: I'm making a copy of my Breaking Bad box set and when I get to season 3. I need to be able to copy subtitles. Can you tell me if it is possible to get the subtitles to appear like they do in the DVD? I don't want subtitles for every spoken word of the film, just when there are other languages that are spoken where English films include the translation.
Question 2: If I rip it like this, there are no subtitles at all, I have tried selecting English on Track 1 but that seems to turn on subtitles for everything. I have tried Forced Subtitles and that has the same effect. How can I get JUST the subtitles for the non-English dialogue which is the default if I play the DVD on a DVD player?
Many ripper users send feedbacks to us about the forced subtitle setting issue, here we will impart you the information on DVD/movie subtitles and how to back up a DVD with the scene and only foreign language subtitles during the scene?
DVD/Movie Subtitles are textual versions of the dialog or scene in DVD film videos displayed at the bottom of the screen, to have viewers understand the spoken dialogue or the signs better. | Subtitle Definition
Soft Subtitle is involved in the actually DVD video, but is independent of the movie video. When ripping a DVD, it's usually titled "Track *".
Hard Subtitle, contrary to soft subtitles, attaches itself into the actual video and would always come along with the video.
Forced Subtitle appears on screen when a foreign/alien language is spoken, or showed in a sign, location, or other text, aiming to explain the meaning but can not be placed in the dubbing. When ripping a DVD, it's directly titled "Forced Subtitle".
Note: Generally, only the foreign dialogues and signs that matter the movie plot are translated in the forced subtitle.
