Subtitler:Why can t I read my STL files
Why can't I read my STL files?
You should know that there are 3 types of STL files:
- The European Broadcast Union defined a binary format for subtitle exchange which has the extension .STL. You use this kind of files to communicate with subtitle labs and broadcast stations. TitleListConverter can import and Subtitler can export EBU files.
- There is a text file format .STL which was largely introduced with DVD Studio Pro 2 from Apple. You find the specification in the DVD Studio Pro user manual. This format has two flavours (which can be mixed):
- STL Text files containing timecode information and text. Subtitler can import and export these files. Use this file when you want DVD Studio Pro to render the titles.
- STL Graphic Files containing links to graphics, but no text. Subtitler can export these files. Use this file when you want to use the graphics files exported by Belle Nuit Subtitler.
