Same here on the captions. I have a hard time hearing anything due to my bad hearing. It would be nice if some of the videos had captioning so I knew what the actors were saying.

I prefer English films, but I've purchased plenty of Hungarian ones with little complaints. I would really like to see captions on the Hungarian films, however. It helps a little more when I can understand what your actresses are saying.

The problem with captions are they are extremely time consuming to do post production. You have to translate everything said and then you have to add it to the sequences. Once added, you also have the distraction for people who don't like captions that they are blocking parts of the action. You can add a separate caption file but that is another post production trick.

I'll be honest, last month we had a guy buy like ten clips and then challenge all the purchases once he downloaded them. Needless to say he is banned from C4S for life until the charges are paid. However, the bottom line is we unfortunately don't have the time or resources to do this kind of stuff thanks to folks like that. I spend a lot of time just tracking down copyright issues. So we look to hire women to speak English, our real technicians however who we need for realism don't speak it. So we are looking for a happy medium.

I think it depends on the scene. Having some done in English would be nice.

I do think that a separate SRT file might be the way to go. If someone wants to use it, they can figure out how themselves, and if not, it’s probably an hour or two of someone typing.

If someone wishes to volunteer to translate the Hungarian and create the .srt files please email me alexpwm@aol.com
