I worked on a method for doing what Jville808 wants to do.I think it will allow a even divide of the two DVD5 discs .
This is meant to be used with DSEDIT1.pdf attached to this post as a partial guide.I have made some corrections in my post where I thought necessary.
The 2 movies I used were already decrypted & compressed to single layer DVD5 on my HDD.
That should simulate a two disc DVD5 set for one movie.
I made a short clip from the end of the longer movie(first disc) the amount of time it took to make the second movie equal time when it is added.
BU only that clip to Folder Sclip.
I then took the same amount off the end of the whole main movie of the longer movie(first disc).
BU only that clip to Folder Lclip
Do BU of shorter movie(second disc) Main Movie to Folder Disc 2.
Open Sclip in Full DISC then change to Re-author mode.
Drag Title 1 to L. window .
Open Disc 2 in Full DISC then change to Re-author mode.
Drag it title 1 to L. window It will show as Title 1 (2).
BU these to addedclip Folder.
Copy VOB files from addedclip Folder to RenamedVOB folder.
Rename VTS_01_001.VOB, VTS_01_002.VOB,VTS_01_003.VOB ,& so on.
As in PDF instructions.
Open VobEdit to join all the .VOB files together. Click Open and select the first .VOB file, VTS_01_001.VOB.
Then go to File and select Join Clips. When the Save As dialog appears, create a new folder in HDD and name it as VIDEO_TS, and type VTS_01_1.VOB as the File name.
Click Save when ready.Make sure to Save in VIDEO_TS folder
A dialog will open and ask to specify a starting VOB-ID. Usually you will enter here a ‘1’ to let the titleset start
with VOB-ID 1. Just press OK.
The PDF is incorrect for doing this part .When it says there will be one VOB file.This would be the case for joining short clips but a Main Movie like this is broken into multiple 1GB VOBs & 1 smaller than 1GB VOB.
At this point I create a VIDEO_TS1 folder & copy the files in the VIDEO_TS to it.This may be an unnecessary step.
If something goes wrong though it keeps the Join Clips from having to be done again.The VIDEO_TS1 is your BU.
Start IfoEdit, press the Create IFOs button near the bottom to open the Create new IFO files window. On the 1st VOB of Title-Set, press the button, select the VTS_01_1.VOB in the VIDEO_TS folder, and press Open. Make sure to select â€œSame as sourceâ€ option. Press OK to start the process.
It will do all the VOBs.
Do the Audio fix as in the PDF saving each time.If their is more than one Audio do the fix to all.
This is a necessary step. Close IFOEdit.
Open IfoEdit again; open the IFO (VTS_01_0.IFO). Click VOB Extras, make sure a to check only the options showed on the screenshot in the PDF, and browse to the Destination directory other than the original VIDEO_TS folder, the Mock Strip Backup folder.Follow PDF instructions for striping streams.
When IfoEdit finishes the Mock Strip process, It will have the new files in the Mock Strip Backup folder. Drag and drop or copy all the new files into the VIDEO_TS folder and click â€œYes to allâ€ for the Confirm File Replacement.
At this point if the VIDEO_TS folder opens in DVDShrink with no error it is probably OK.
I checked it with VLC & it played OK so I burned it to an +RW disc with ImgBUrn.
The play was smooth.Since it was two different movies it was easy to tell when it changed to the second movie.
With the same movie on a 2 disc set you might be able to make the join even less noticable .
The PDF DSEDIT1.pdf is attached to another topic & I can’t attach it to two topics.I will post a link.
