Copy select chapters for newb

vbimport

#1

Hi! I’m new to this game and have what may be a dumb question. Currently I have DVDShrink and DVD decrypter installed on my PC. What I want to do is copy only select chapters from the source dvd – not the whole movie. From what I have read so far I’m not sure I have the right stuff to do this. Can anyone tell me if it can be done (and how) with what I have or is there other software I need to buy or download. Thanks a lot….

You do, in shrink go to reauthour DVD, then click the button to edit start/end frames. A new window pops up that lets you step through the film to where you want the movie to start/end. There is no reason you can’t start at the beginning of chapter 3 and then end at chapter 5. If you want to copy all but chapter 5 you could set it to work 0-4 and then a seperate copy of the movie for 6-end.

Pain in the arse method, but should work.

Great. One other question. Would this process work to mix select chapters from various dvds into a new “mixed” dvd? If not, what is the process. Thanks for all your help!

not with dvdshrink.

each of your selected chapters will have there own vob set, i use dvdlab to create a working dvd from multipul vob sets.

edit: just to add if you use dvdlab (which has a free 30 day trial) go to dvdrhelp and search for reboots guide.

You can use Chopper XP to extract scenes from your dvds. http://www.digital-miner.com/chopperxp.html# Then you can use GUI for dvdauthor to create the dvds. Both programs are free, but the only one i’ve used is chopper XP. ako is right about dvdlab (which i have used), but the learning curve is steep so you defintely want to read the guides. I suggest the gui program because its free. You can get it here http://www.videohelp.com/~gfd/
