compressed image after burning .mov with subtitles in toast

Question

hi there. I've been trying to work this out for a long time, but to no avail:

I have a movie in an avi file which works perfectly on my dvd-player when I burn it on dvd. However, when I put subtitles on it (with submerge), the file changes in a .mov file, opens with quicktime, but when I burn it, my dvd-player won't read it. so, I tried toast, first with the divx option (took a million years to burn) and then with the dvd-video option. both times my dvd- and television-screen showed a movie horizontally the size of the screen, but vertically only 1 inch big, so not much to see. I also tried another option in toast, which also took forever, but unfortunately I forgot what I did, it was something like converting the .mov file into divx or something, anyway, that worked, but when I played in on dvd-player I got a distorted view, like it was HD playing on normal tv which gives you a headache.

 

also, when I use the export button and press the preview button just to check how the movie will turn out, toast crashes immediately.

 

what am I doing wrong? and can somebody give me advise on how to make the .mov file readable for my dvd-player? everything I've tried doesn't work, and I also found out that when I try in quicktime or even submerge to export the file to divx, the program suddenly stops.... is that a bug or do I sound stupid now? btw, I have a macbook pro

I found this on the support page at the Submerg developer's site:

 

"How do I burn a subtitled DVD from my Submerged movie?

- Submerge was never designed to work with DVD subtitles. It's purpose is to create movies for the iPod or the Apple TV or for your Computer, not DVD's. If you really, really need to get your subtitled movie on to a DVD you can use Visual Hub after you have added your subtitles."

 

As for Divx disc, I just don't know. It seems that Submerge is for play back on a computer, not a TV.

thanx, I'll give it a try & let you know. btw, I googled visual hub and it seems there are different versions of it. one version I could download for free from mac.sixfiles.com, but I'm not sure if this is the right one, is it better to buy the version from apple?

I don't use Visual Hub. Check for user comments at verstiontracker.com or at macupdate.com.
