Does anyone know of an authoring application that will import DVD-Video from a Video_TS folder, and automatically add the DVD-compliant chapter marks as proper chapters to a submenu?
The background is that I have some material recovered from a decaying Princo disc ( ); using IsoPuzzle, DVD Decrypter with all streams demuxed, and finally building a Video_TS folder by remuxing everything, including original chapter points, with IFOedit. The chapter marks appear to be compliant and when the DVD folders are burned to disc the chapters are selectable in every software and hardware standalone player I can find. However I’d like to make a submenu of the 43 chapters beneath the title menu.
DVD Movie Factory 5 recognises and pretends to want to accept the chapters, but as with every previous iteration this idiosyncratic program still then imports the whole title with chapters stripped. Or, if you select them individually, each chapter comes in as a separate title. It would be possible to reauthor the submenu manually and add the chapter points one-by-one, but there’s 43 of them and I can’t believe a program can’t take in a basic text file of hr:min:sec:frame pointers and apply it intelligently.
I tried TMPGenc Author 3 but it barfs straight away on the chapter import bit.
Probably need something more complicated, such as DVD Workshop or Maestro but any advice would be appreciated…
