Subs Factory

2.1.525 January 2019

Subtitles editor.

Overview

Subs Factory makes subtitling easier! It is a powerful utility designed to perform the creation, modification, and resynchronization of subtitles efficiently. Featuring advanced functions, it allows you to do whatever you want with your subtitles. It mainly works with .srt files, but also allows to open some .sub files.

You can get an idea about how Subs Factory works by taking a look at themanual.

Features:

  • Creation, deletion and modification of subtitles (text, duration, position,...).
  • Very simple resynchronization by choosing two reference subtitles.
  • Advanced search and replace function.
  • Splitting and concatenation of subtitle files.
  • On-the-fly subtitling-standards compliance checking (with modifiable settings).
  • File encodings are handled.
  • .sub files can be opened (subtitles indexed by image number).
  • Transforming text files into subtitles.
  • An user's manual is included.

What's new in Subs Factory

Version 2.1.5:
  • A bug preventing use of "Editor" palette with systems older than macOS 10.14 (Mojave) has been fixed.
  • Implementing Internet Access Policy for Little Snitch.
  • Some crashes fixed.

Requirements for Subs Factory

  • OS X 10.9.0 or later

No try. No buy. Jubler is free and does the same (and better).

Used to love this app... But now I find it buggy and more complicated UI. Opened a .srt file and SF give me ghost text at the beginning of the subtitle. Opened the same file with Jubler, Subfix and the sub was normal...

Used the previous free version. But the GUI is a mess. Bought the news version. Better GUI. Now, here's the WTF situation - Create a new project file (.sfp); Open Video and Subtitle to add; Do some editing; Save the project and to return in a few hours to continue. Guess what?! Open the saved project file and nothing! Yup, nada. No video, no subtitle, no nothing. Damn pissed off now. Wasted a few hours of editing and all gone. Wish can just shift the blue text block in the timeline instead of keying with the time codes. It would be faster. Can this be a feature? Right now, not recommended. Wasted 8 bucks on this. And hours I can get back!

Hello. You can get an idea about how SF works by taking a look at the manual : http://www.subsfactory.fr/v2/manuel/manuelen . I will think about creating a demo version.

Let's face it, subtitling is not rocket science. There are a few options available, I'm surprised anyone could get partisan about any. Subs Factory does what it says it will and it's only €7. (1) Jubler has an unidentified unsigned developer - so I need to change security settings. (2) It will not run, because of "Unable to load Java Runtime Environment" (3) Jubler needs Java, which is not ideal, (although I do use other Java apps - successfully. So I know the runtime is installed). Open Source is great. Free can also be good. A fan on both counts. I also don't have a problem recognising and paying for apps that I use and need. When Jubler worked for me before, it was fine. It doesn't now => not fine. The no try, no buy is another issue.

Neil, you must have bad luck. I've been using Jubler ever since OpenShiiva went away, and I have never had an issue. And for the record, Java is not bad - and it works fine...in other words: "ideal." For me, anyway. I recommend Jubler to anyone who wants free versus paid. Pretty simple.

I just want to convert a sub file to srt. but opening the sub file takes about a half an hour or crashes the app. If I do manage to get one open after a half hour, the encoding is wrong. But when I choose another encoding to see if that's the right one, it's another half hour wait or crash. I think life is too short for this app.

Completely agree. Absolutely useless. Cann't even open a video file in the first place. There are more funny things about it, such as not showing up in the overview of running apps. It is hiding its windows for some reason.

Hi, Great software. But I can't seem to see the subtitles I've created in the subtitle window. The subtitles are there, the Subtitles pallet is open, but nothing displays in it. I have version 1.3.2. I basically need to see the result of my work.
