Excellent application, and the support is more than great. The best subtitle application for the Mac no doubt!

Works rather well, but using the blu-ray beta plugin with DVD Studio pro STL (spruce) subtitles does not convert the tags for italic formatting into something useful, but instead puts the tags in the png files, and that is not very good. Please fix.

Functionality and import/export options are quite good.

However, the GUI design (or lack thereof) makes this application difficult to use and requires multiple repetitive steps to do simple tasks. The interface has many inconsistencies, controls/icons that are cluttered and too small, and a lack of overall consistency and usability.

If the (one-person shop) developer would consult a good GUI designer, and observe actual user workflow, then overhaul the interface, this application could become the top tool of its kind.

For efficient entry of subtitle or caption text, there are many better choices under US$100.

Additionally, there is no user manual, on-line help, or video tutorials (or other training). When feedback is given to the developer, he reacts quite defensively and does seem to appreciate or respect user input. All this for an application that costs nearly US$400.

In my review, I mis-typed "does seem to appreciate..."

It should be "doesn't."

D-Mac, you said, "For efficient entry of subtitle or caption text, there are many better choices under US$100."

Could you expand a little on these? I'm trying to find an efficient way to create multi-language subtitles with DVD Studio Pro based on translation work that's sent to me in Word documents. So far, the choices seem to boil down to (a) copy and paste each subtitle individually into DVD Studio Pro, or (b) spend upwards of $4000 for some software to allow me to import the text, easily add time codes, etc.

If you know of a way to do that for $100, please do pass on the name I need to look for. Thanks in advance.
