There was a bug about not keeping non-forced "clear subtitle" command after forced subtitle, that was fixed around 1.6.8 or so. The data from post at handbrake suggest that similar bug is still present or you do have a file from old MakeMKV. Please make an MKV file from this disc (referenced at https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.ph ... 25#p111452
) that has all subtitle streams (don't check forced), then extract all subtitle streams from MKV with mkvextract and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, in addition to keeping "clear subtitle", MakeMKV always tries to set "duration" of subtitle frame properly, as mentioned in the same post.
Hi Mike, thanks for replying.
The MKV file referenced above, containg the forced subtitle extract was created with MMKV ver. 1.7.4.
I want to get this right, so what I'm going to do is send two english PGS subtitle tracks, one with all subs intact, one with forced only. They will be properly labeled as to which is which.
This issue seems to only show up, when extracting just forced subtitles as part of the MKV file. It is this type of file that seems to be missing the clear subtitles, as you can see by the log that HB creates, (forced subtitle log: https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.ph ... 25#p111452
) were as the log from the decrypted backup, (one down/below the forced log, containing all english subs) shows the clear subtitles being present.
I have MKV Tools 3.0, (for the Macinthosh) which creates a sup file extraction of the PGS track, MKV extract is not supported in the version of MKV Toolnix that I have, (MKV Toolnix 4.3.0.) This feature seems to only be available in the PC version of MKV Toolnix. I can't run PC software, I'm Mac only.
Or I guess I could delete all tracks in the MKV file, (except for the PGS track and remux it again into an MKV file, will that work for you?
