Subtitles LOCKED into burn-in

Post by Media_Allen » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:16 pm

Description of problem or question:
A .MKV with several subtitles, 1 regular and 3 more commentary.
I'd like to keep 2 of them, not burned-in.
No matter what I do, subtitles burn-in
(secondary problem)
Subtitles do not retain label in MPC-HC even when source video has labels in MPC-HC

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Delete starting subtitle track with 'X'
Add Track (any)
burn in box is checked and grayed out, cannot uncheck
check "Default" un-checks burn-in, but proceeding BURNS-IN!
un-checking "Default" leaves no checks showing but burns-in.

So I must abandon all subtitles, or have one of them burned-in and any others I select be lost.



HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.2.2



Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Re: Subtitles LOCKED into burn-in

Post by s55 » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:23 pm

Your source has PGS Subtitles.

MP4 files do not support PGS subtitles which means you must burn-in if your using this, or use other software to OCR and convert the subtitle images to a text based format like SSA.

Otherwise, you can use MKV which won't force burn-in.

Is this the same issue with audio track names (like Commentary) not being retained -- that MP4 doesn't support it?
