Recently used this app for a project and it really saved us on time. Much thanks and appreciation to the DoStudio Team for putting this together. Look forward to future updates.

A great & affordable tool!
May it can be taken to to-do list, please make the assistant recognize if subtitle images sequences have spaces in file name. Since it is the last field in text script, it can be isolated & easily corrected.

best regards

Hi Andreas.

Thanks for the feedback.  The tool is still in beta and we are glad for any new suggestion.  We'll be releasing an update soon, which has a few bug fixes  (we support now dost files that are not separated by tabs, and we support BDN XML files). 

I like your idea.  To implement it however we would have to rename the pngs as well, since DSA's muxer is not capable of handling filenames with spaces inside.  But renaming the filenames in the dost file as well as renaming the actual pngs is not too much trouble.  We'll add it to the list of new features.

Hi Peter,

this sounds great, especially the option to convert BDN XML scripts.
Another suggestion, can we have an option to specify an offset since DoStudio by itself has no timecode embedded? Most delivered subtitle scripts starting at TC 10:00:00:00.

Thank you very much for your open mind & to ask our opinion!

best regards

I assume you mean 01:00:00:00. ...but yes, we can add an offset function, so that after offsetting the start timecode of the dost is 00:00:00:00 and all events are moved accordingly.


Thanks for the 2 new feature suggestions.

We have often TC 10:00:00:00 as start time code here for features longer than one hour.
It is simply easier to read the running timecode on timeline by just removing the first number! ;)

An offset function would save time for me.
