POST 1 - INFORMATION & F.A.Q RELATED TO TIMING
1. WHAT IS THE RAW VIDEO VERSION THAT THE SUBS BEING SYNC WITH?
The SUB is sync with XVID raw video ver. Most of our subs in DSS are sync with XVID raw video version unless we stated if it being sync with different version of raw video encoded.
2. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN XVID & 450P?
Video quality. 450p raw video using x264 HD Video Codec, which means the picture and pixels quality is more better than XVID.
3. WHY THE SUBS IS SYNC WITH XVID ENCODED RAW VIDEO? AND NOT 450P?
This is because, XVID codec is the fastest to encode, simple in process of encoding and smaller in size. Compare to 450p raw video ver (which is x264 HD Video codec),450p require more time to encode, complex in process of encoding and bigger size compare to XVID video ver. The team that making early stage of subtitle will sync with the raw video that being release the most earliest. And the most earliest raw video that always being release is in XVID encoded version.
4. WHY SOMETIMES THE SUB ARE NOT SYNC PERFECTLY WITH THE VIDEO EVEN WE DOWNLOAD THE VIDEO FROM THE SAME ENCODER?
Please be advise that even you download the video from the same encoder but different version (Example like:- HANrel XVID or HANrel 720p or HANrel 450p), it does not means that every video will have same length. The latest issue that happen is like this:
MWTS EP15 HANrel - XVID : 1:07:21,741
MWTS EP15 HANrel - 450p : 1:07:21,241
Even the encoder are same, it does not guarantee that the length are same. I'm not saying that this happen every time, but sometimes issue like this happen.5. HOW COULD WE FIXED THE OFF SYNC TIMING ISSUE?
Please report or contact either the Moderators/Elite Member/Editor/Timer that working with the related drama/movies/variety show. DO NOT FIXED THE TIMING IN DarkSmurf CTS EDITOR BY YOURSELF
with any other encoded version video because at the end, it will just mess up the original work.
