Every now and then I hit a stretch where it seems I am doing nothing but subtitles. There are many tools out there to make it easier, but there was one thing I got tired of doing manually- splitting subtitles into 2 lines.
The most common subtitle format is to have 2 lines of subtitles, as it seems to be a generally good balance between enough time on the screen and not too much text on the screen. You want each line to be balanced, so there isn’t 40 characters on the top line, and only 2 characters on the second. All of this takes time. I got tired of doing this over and over again, so I wrote a script to do it for you.
