it’s quite common for box sets to contain 3 x 1 hour episodes per DVD, whis is too much for a single layer copy. The most efficent way to pack episodes onto single layer blanks would be 2 x 1 hour episodes per DVD. This will work as a 1 hour per episode estimate is being generous, 50-55 minutes is more likely to be the actual length if it was a TV series.
Now it’s easy to select episodes 1 & 2, via customise option, and ditto for 5 & 6, but episodes 3 & 4 are on differrent source discs, so combining them onto a single blank is more challenging.
with a 12 episode set, 7 & 8 will customise OK, so will 11 & 12, but 9 & 10 will also be on separate source discs.
Merge will allow me to combine the sources, but if I do it that way then I’ll lose chapter select options I think. Obviously I could use separate blanks, for parts 3 & 4 but that offends my sense of neatness, so can anyone suggest a neater solution which will preserve all of the original navigation options ?
(using other programs if needed, but not too complex please!)
