Basic concept is great. Preview, scaling and cropping, encoding farm. Couple of issues to kink out but that's just a matter of time.

Carl's a great guy. One day he stepped into Ardour development just like that and started to help out (Ardour is one wicked beast of a multi-threaded architecture if I ever saw one). Probably helped to save the project in the process, too.

The name, though? That's, err, misleading, to say the least :)

Completely agree about the (quite awful) name  ;D might be a historical issue behind it ?

Maybe it's one of those things where the application has grown beyond the original intent and the name didn't keep up?

I am looking for any information on creating a proper closed caption xml file for use with OpenDCP. Does anyone know of any open source software that will create an xml file in the proper format? Or does anyone have information on how to manually create an xml file that is compatible with OpenDCP?

I found software to create subtitles that I'm thinking might work with my closed caption project. It's called Jubler. Now I just need to figure out why OpenDCP fails to convert the created xml file into an mxf file.
