Default Program suggestions for editing a DVD with subtitles.'s the scoop. I have a lot of home movies in DV. I have been converting them to DVD's so that they are watchable by the family at their convenience. Part of my conversion process is to use the program dvdatecode v1.4 to create a subtitle file with the time/datestamps of the video footage. I wrote a VB program that parses the output into my authoring program's subtitle format (subtitle workshop seems to be somewhat buggy handling NTSC files and my authoring program's format). I then have successfully authored the DVD's with the option to press the subtitle button and make the time/date the footage was shot appear on the screen just as I wanted it (equivalent of the SUB-T feature in new Sony's I believe).

Now the hard part (for me). On occasion while viewing the DVD's, I've run across short segments that I forgot to trim out. I don't have enough hard drive space to keep all my projects indefinitely so what I'd ideally like to be able to do would be to import the DVD, trim the footage, and reburn the DVD without reauthoring it. I need the trimming to be done frame-accurate with the subtitle information trimmed at the same time. Is there a good software package (commercial or otherwise) out there that will do this? I REALLY don't want to have to go through the trouble of ripping all the content and editing the footage and subs seperately and hoping it all lines back up when I reauthor the DVD nor do I wish to go back to the original DV footage and redo the process from scratch.

Bonus question: I intend to migrate to an AVCHD unit in the very near future. The Sony camcorders already have a SUB-T feature enabled that puts the time/datestamp into the subtitle of the AVCHD package. Is there a program out there that will allow me to trim the AVCHD footage and subtitles so that I can burn it back to Blu-Ray with the SUB-T subtitles intact (same as above but w/ Blu-Ray instead of DVD vobs)? It boggles my mind why two of the leading packages (Premiere and Vegas) do not seem to allow this at all for either???
