They usually apply some filters to make the raw look better. That could be sharpening, smoothing, blurring etc. Then the subs are "burnt" into the video stream (almost every fansub uses hardsubs). Then an audiostream is added and the both streams are compressed into an avi that is later available for download.


If you want to learn how to play around with video files I suggest http://www.doom9.org/
There are a tons of different guides there and forum most likely contains all you need to now.

For filters, stream management, adding subs and encoding, VirtualDub or VirtualDubMod will do. It's a very nice free software. Then you need different codecs, but if you watch fansubs you most likely have every codec you need installed. Then for using the xvid codec for compression read the xvid faq and the threads regarding xvid at www.doom9.org. They discuss the built in filters in VDub and also non-built in and how you use them as long with the settings for the xvid codec itself.
Then if you want to edit audio you need software like Wavestudio etc. And finally regarding subs, there are quite a number of different software and formats available. I would go with Substation Alfa.

Now, most software can be found at doom9, and if not jut use google. Read the manual and faqs for the different softwares and look for threads regarding the earlier mentioned software at (again) doom9. All you need to know can be found there

What I'd use if I was in a group:

Virtualdubmod (for encoding)
Avisynth (for filters)
VSFilter (for combining the video with the subtitles)
BeSweet (for audio re-encoding if needed)
AviMuxGui (for combining video and audio)

For creating subtitles, I quite like Medusa. It was the first subtitling program I used and I also felt it was the best one after I tried substation alpha and some other programs.

I use avisynt myself but I left it out since I think it's better to try out filters with vdub first if you're really new to videoencoding. Avisynth is, while not really hard to use, not what I would call user friendly software for beginners.

Go to www.doom9.org
Go to their guides section and it will teach you whatever style of encoding you want.

You compress the video with vdubmod first, then combine the audio and video with avimuxgui. Avimuxgui is optional really, but virtualdub(mod)'s audio handling is less than stellar so I prefer to use avimuxgui.

Avisynth is far from being newbie unfriendly. It's very simple to operate and everything is well documented. In my opinion, virtualdub filters are no easier to operate than avisynth ones.
