"Terrific value for the professional"

December 11, 2009  |  By Swift2

 |  Version: Annotation Edit


This program does, for 250 Euros, what you have to pay $6,000 for in the Windows world. It has been the secret weapon for many professional directors and producers, and everyone from the media pro to the web media producer should take a serious look.


It is written in Germany, so at times the English of the menus is not easy to understand. It could have a more up-to-date manual, too. But the personal support is excellent.


This is a program that helps people produce original subtitles, and convert just about any format into any others. It works with anything from text formats to Blu-ray graphics, and does so with the Mac's clear edge in graphics and video. Do you have a set of subtitles to convert to Flash xml? Done. A set of closed-captions to turn into Blu-ray subtitles for the deaf? Done. Convert from PAL to NTSC drop? Done. I started using this program when it was much more limited because it was the best, quickest and most accurate program we could find -- and did I mention it's quite cheap? -- and it came through like a champ. Let's just say that many of the titles of movies you might see on Blu-ray came from this program.

It could be more user-friendly. The manual is perfunctory, and the menus often seem translated from German, which, in fact, they are. But those who work in this field have had to struggle with some very high-priced software that is less adaptable and clever, and just as opaque. This is, in fact, a kind of Swiss Army knife for the captioner and subtitler, and it works flawlessly with Final Cut Pro and Quicktime, for less than a tenth of the price that you pay for the Windows equivalent.
