That's about what DeLogo does. It's a bit complicated to set up, but
after that, it runs on its own in VirtualDub. And the results run from
quite astonishing down to absolutely appalling, depending on the
quality/details of the source. Quickly-changing hard subs over video
are a real bitch.

Hey, I'd love to be proven wrong! I don't think I will be, sadly. But
if you've got some more details on what sort of computer replacement
you're talking about, speak up!

I'd suggest to anyone bothered by the Japanese subtitles to consider
them as a great opportunity to learn the language while watching an
interesting program. :)
