Request: Italic and Bold tags in SRT and SUB

Postby Emaster » Thu Aug 09, 2007 4:47 pm

It would be nice if you add this feature.
To recognize for example the <i> in SRT and the {Y:i} in SUB subtitles and format ONLY this subtitles with Italic.
I think that for my needs this is the only flaw, because this program has generated the best subtitles of all others tools I've tried..

Is this that hard?

I think this is THE functionality that is missing to this great software that everyone wants.

From version 42.7 the program ignores the <i> and <b> tags. Does this means that the support will never exist?

I'm happy to donate to help!

hey!
In that topic:

How Txt2Sup can easily work :
Render one line bold and one normal etc... like this :
<i>Hello</i>
<b>Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy</b>
This case is really easy to be done with txt2sup


I think that for almost all cases that's perfect (at least, until now, I haven't seen DVD subtitles multi formatted in one line). I mean.. probably would be better to continue to ignore the tags but that we could edit each line with a format.
For example, selecting a subtitle, we chose if we want the 1st, or/and second line with italics. (something similar to what is done in DVD-lab PRO)
Just some ideas. I don't know if is easily executable.
This program still generate the best subtitles and is so close to become perfect (at least for me :D )

I dissagree ... :roll: the most styled cases ar inline ...
example :
Hotel <i>'Margarita'</i> at 9 am

I this is a lot better now that it becomes :
Hotel 'Margarita' at 9 am
than
Hotel 'Margarita' at 9 am

Dont you think ?

Yes, that's true.
Probably, each country has their own rules (or no rules at all?!).

Normally, I see italics in conversations, for example, by phone (or when someone is talking but is not on screen) , sometimes when someone is singing.
in your example I normally see like you said: Hotel 'Margarita' at 9 am
But is not a rule, I mean, probably sometimes I saw something like Hotel Margarita at 9 am like you said.

But I think that is better to have an option to format each line than don't have any option for that at all.

What do you think?

Does any program support the italic and bold tags for conversion?
AFAIK even DVD Lab Pro removes them (and then you have to manually set each line).
