    Edit DVD preserve Closed Captions help
    I want to record video from broadcast TV on a DVD recorder, then edit on my computer and then burn to DVD.
    Closed Cations must be preserved as I am hearing impaired and finished DVD would be shown to hearing impaired persons.
    So far when I output the final DVD the closed captions are gone. What software will preserve them?
    I have tried with iMac and iMovie HD, iMovie 9, and Popcorn. I also have a pc would Nero work?

    Have you checked to see how the CC is recorded on the DVD? I looked up a bit about CC on DVDs and it looks like it can be encoded in a couple different ways, including on a subtitle track - if it's on the subtitle track, you'll need to use something to extract the subtitles, edit them with the video then re-add them in...

    Preserving Closed Captions
    Yes, I did look up info on where captions are recorded. I'm wanting to keep the closed captions for the hearing impaired which is part of the video signal, not the subtitles on movie DVDs. What I have read so far says Popcorn strips the captions when it recodes to mp4. And somewhere I read iMovie also leaves these out. The high end editing software allows you to write closed captions but I'm wanting to preserve the captions already in broadcast video recorded on my DVD recorder, then edit out unwanted parts of programs and burn to DVD to share recorded programs with hearing impaired friends who missed the broadcast.
