Subtitle file formats

Top  Previous  Next

TitleVision Sub Machine opens and saves subtitle files in six different formats:

 

RAC - developed by Screen Electronics

 

PAC - developed by Screen Electronics

 

The RAC and PAC formats save the contents, time code, position, justification, and italicization of each subtitle. The choice of font is not saved.

 

There actually are two different RAC/PAC formats. The default is PU2020. If you want to save your files in the PU2000 format, you have to untick the Options/Preferences/File Settings/Import or .pac or .rac files in PU2020 format option. If your italics brackets show up as color codes in other systems, this is what you must do.

 

890 - developed by Cavena (also called Scantitling format). *

 

TXT - ANSI text format with or without time code **

 

Spruce STL format (used for DVD subtitling) - developed by Spruce Technologies

 

USF - Universal Subtitle Format - developed by CoreCodec.com
