Digital Cinema Naming Convention

Appendix #9

 

Labeling Open and Closed Caption Files Open and Closed Caption files are coded as "CCAP" for Closed Caption and "OCAP" for Open Caption.

 

If used, CCAP and/or OCAP should appear at the end of the Language field after a hyphen.

 

For example:

 

     MovieTitle_FTR-1_F_EN-EN-CCAP_US-G_51_2K_ST_20130515_FAC_INT_VF-1

 

Note:  The example above is a Version File (VF-1) that modifies an OV file in order to add the Closed Captions.  The language in the audio and the Closed Captions is the same.  "EN" appears in both the audio and subtitle sections of the Language Field.

 

The OV file this Version File would access (the FTR-1 OV) would be labeled without any language indication in the subtitle portion of the Language Field:

 

     MovieTitle_FTR-1_F_EN-XX_US-G_51_2K_ST_20130515_FAC_INT_OV

 


  If the Language Code is UPPER CASE, the sub-titles are generated in real time by the projector.  If the Language Code is lower case, the subtitles are burned into the image already
