I think I've asked this before but I still haven't found a solution. I have DVDFab Platinum 3, Intervideo DVD Copy 5, and DVDReMake 3 but neither will do what I want:
Take separate DVD titles/episodes*, each in their own separate folders, combine them into one DVD-5, with a single first play menu showing buttons for each title/episode, with a custom label for each button (e.g., the name of the title/episode).
Intervideo DVD Copy 5 gets closer than the rest, but it's crap**; it doesn't let me directly customize the titles, but at least it uses the containing folder name for the button label. But, it spits out garbled titles that look like Sanskrit or something with half the projects I create.
*(authored with DVDShrink (strip out individual episodes, removing unwanted audio streams in the process), then DVDReMake (cut out title sequence and credits))
** It just occurred to me that I might be able to make it work by changing the order I do things - use Intervideo to do the merge earlier in the process, without compressing, then cut out the title sequences, credits, and unwanted audio afterwards, then compress with something less craptacular. I hope I've answered my own question.
