Have you been playing around with DVD Author? I’ve been messing with it and I just processed “End Of Days”…burning it now to see how it goes. I processed the actual DVD VOB & IFO files after ripping them with DVD Decrypter.
Author gave me a problem saying the bitrate was too high and wasn’t DVD compliant. It allowed me to ignore and process anyway, so I’m seeing what happens.
The video stream bitrate was 9800 and the audio stream was 384. If I’m reading right, the FAQ at TMPG’s website said that the combined bitrate can’t exceed 10000. If this IS an issue, that would mean I’d have to demux the VOB streams, process them in TMPGen at a lower video bitrate and then do them in Author.
That would be kinda’ time consuming and maybe not worth it. Anyway, the burn just finished and it works fine. The menu I created with Author works fine also. I never had to use DVD2One on this one. The movie filesize was under 4472 including the menu I created. Cool! I was also able to easily edit out the FBI warning screen with no IFO problem.
Gotta’ try another with a larger movie file. I wanna’ see if DVD2One has any probs with the IFO’s Author creates.
Thanks again for the heads-up, I saw them advertise it on their website a while ago but I forgot all about it.
