Hello All. I am new to the forum and also have actually a question regarding the required subtitles in the Star Wars movies released on DVD in the mid 2000"s.

You are watching: Star wars episode 3 subtitles alien only

A few years ago I converted my home entertainment devices to Windows Media Center and also Xbox 360"s. At that time I started converting the thousands of DVD"s I"ve purchased over the years to single .mpeg files so I could watch them over Media Center. What I realized after a variety of conversions is that some movies that have actually subtitles for non-english speaking components are not encoded in the video itself however are component of the subtitle stream. So upon convariation I shed every one of these subtitles. The Star Wars movies that I have actually on DVD are all favor this.

I have actually currently determined just how to re-encode the movies utilizing Handbrake encoder and also to actually burn the subtitles in and also have actually done well through every one of the Star Wars films execept for Episode III and also Episode V.

The problem via III and V is that I can"t seem to determine which subtitle stream consists of the dialogue of the aliens. Partly because I can not remember where in these films that this happens.

What I"m hoping is help through "wbelow does this happen?"

Can anyone tell me roughly how much (or what scenes) in these movies does alien dialogue show up on display screen so I can test for the correct caption stream?

This would certainly be substantially appreciated as I don"t think this happens very much in these two movies. Compared to say Episode VI where it happens alot, particularly at the start of the film.

Cheers,

Kato

Yeah, the lack of burned-in subtitles is something that has actually pissed me off to no end, especially the tendency for the caption track subtitles to not also exist inside the frame yet instead inserted in the matte! Of all the stupid decisions Lucasfilm has made... this is one of them.

I can not sheight for Sith, as I haven"t seen it in a while, but the reason you can"t uncover any in Empire is bereason... tright here aren"t any! There isn"t a single alien subtitle in that movie, so speak your search, or you"ll simply drive yourself crazy. =P

Tright here is no lingerie in space…

Not that that is going to sheight you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a man.

Great, and also thanks .... will stop my search re: Episode V.

Now we must revolve our attention to Episode III. I intend I might always dig my DVD"s out of storage and watch that one off the of the DVD to watch.

Anyone know where the required subs are in Episode III?

Kato

There might not be any type of in Ep3. The alien characters which had them in the previously movies (Watto, Poggle) either do not make an appearance or have actually been lessened to non-speaking functions.

Alien just subtitles can be found here:

I think just Star Wars Episode’s I, II, IV, & VI have actually aliens speaking

I have actually had the finest luck through Plex on Apple TV for subtitles working via ease.

See more: What Was The Main Theme Of The Island Of Doctor Moreau By H. G. Wells?

Just put the subtitle in the very same brochure as the movie (name it what every you desire, I name mine english-alien-parts-just.srt). In Plex on Apple TV before you start the movie go to the settings, subtitles choices and also pick the subtitle.
