Shifting, converting and trimming audio

What exactly?

Shifting is the process when you delay an audio in a negative or positive way. Matching it from one source on another source.
Trimming is the process when you remove parts of the audio. Also, for the same purpose.


What do I need?

See: Requirements & explanations
As always I highly recommend reading all comments starting with “::” inside the batch files and the explanations of the commands.
Some scripts might not work out of the box.

Shifting audio (old method):

This method is much slower for a whole show, so I don’t recommend it.
Only use this if you really can’t set WSL up.

Open both source with Aegisub.

The source you want to use (Source 1) and the source you want to take the audio and/or subtitles from (Source 2). Skip through both of the videos (arrow keys on your keyboard) to the exact same frame. You probably notice a time difference with both sources, that’s your wanted delay. You can easily calculate it, just substract “Source 1” with “Source 2” – resulting in 1001ms difference in this example.

Open MKVToolnix and drag & drop both sources on it. Deactivate all tracks you don’t need and start entering the “Delay (in ms)” you got from your work below. You have to enter them for every audio & subtitle you want from “Source 2”.

Mux it and you’re done.


Trimming audio:

Open your source with Aegisub.

Skip through the video (arrow keys on your keyboard) until you see the part you want to trim. Note down the starting frame and ending frame of that part.

In this example the starting frame is 4297 and ending frame 6353.
That means you want everything except the part between 4297 & 6253.
So, your trim command is: Trim(0,4296)++Trim(6254,0)
0 also means “until the end”, which is really useful.
The syntax is basically: Trim(START_FRAME,END_FRAME)

Some other examples:
Trim(3000,0) = Starting with frame 3000 until 0 (End)
Trim(3000,30000) = Starting with frame 3000 until 30000
Trim(1000,5000)++Trim(6000,0) = Starting with frame 1000 until 5000 & starting from 6000 until 0 (End) – Removing everything between 5001 and 5999

After having the “Trim” command, you’ve to create a “Trim.txt” inside the “Subfix-Pack” folder. Write your command down and save it. That’s all. You can run the Batch-File now.
