I'm working on a PS2 game which has two movies in PSS format totaling about 100MB. I want to add translated subtitles to these movies.
The best 'tool chain' I've come up with goes PSS > M2V > AVI > (add subtitles) > M2V > PSS. But I suspect all that re-encoding is going to increase the size of a patch file considerably.
I know some PS2 games use softsubs and since PSS files are mostly MPEG2 (aka DVD movie format), I wondered if miraculously the PS2 has some kind of built in support for a certain format of softsub file.
Otherwise, does anyone have any tips that will help keep a patch file a small as possible when recoding videos or have any other advice for adding subs?
YOU! Much appreciation are being!
