is the next generation of the popular CaptionMerge program.
It is a Windows program that runs under Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7.
CaptionMergePlus was designed primarily for post production houses to facilitate encoding multiple languages of closed captioning using caption encoders such as the ULTECH DV2000/ITVinjector and the Link Electronics HDE-3000.
The following example scenario illustrates the main problem that CaptionMergePlus was designed to solve:
You need to encode English and Spanish captions into a program, but you have two caption files: an English CC1 file from one caption author, and a Spanish CC3 file from a different caption author.
Sometimes it's possible to first encode the English captions to an intermediate tape, and then run a second pass to encode the Spanish captions to the final tape. But this is time consuming, and there are several common problems that can prevent this from being successful.
CaptionMergePlus solves this problem by reading both caption files and producing a "composite" ULT file containing both the English and the Spanish captions. You can encode this file in one pass, and both languages will be encoded simultaneously.
Additionally, you can instruct CaptionMergePlus to put the Spanish captions on both CC2 and CC3 in the output file.
And, CaptionMergePlus can convert CAP and TDS caption files to ULT files.
