This started with another thread & I wanted to see if this could be done. It took a lot of trial & error with other software .
I hope it works with all DVDFab Split discs.
The PGCEdit & VobBlanker method just doesn’t work with DVDFab “Split” DVDs. I think the problem happens when the file being replaced in VobBlanker is smaller that the replacement.
Software used :
DVDFab Platinium 188.8.131.52
Start with “Split” of original DVD or rips of the D1 & D2 from the “Split” .
Create a new folder named “VobEdit” .
Copy the movie VOB files from D1 into the VobEdit folder. Except the menu VOB in the movie I’m working with
this is “VTS_03_0.VOB” .
"VTS_03_4.VOB " is just a black 56KB blank so I left it out as well.
Copy files: VTS_03_1.VOB , VTS_03_2.VOB , VTS_03_3.VOB
Rename to : VTS_01_001 , VTS_01_002 ,VTS_01_003
Copy the movie VOB files from D2 into the VobEdit folder. Except the menu VOB in the movie I’m working with
this is “VTS_03_0.VOB” . This time include the "VTS_03_4.VOB " that is just a black 56KB blank.
Rename to : VTS_01_004 , VTS_01_005 ,VTS_01_006 , VTS_01_007
Open VobEdit. Open VTS_01_001.VOB.
Using the Edit pulldown select “Join Clips” .
Select : VTS_01_001.VOB
Save in a new folder Named: “Join Clips” .
This small window will come up:
It should have a 1 in it. Select OK .
When finished I had VTS_01_1.VOB , VTS_01_2.VOB , VTS_01_3.VOB , VTS_01_4.VOB , VTS_01_5.VOB , &
VTS_01_6.VOB in the "Join Clips "folder . Depending on the size of the movie you may have more VOBs. The
first 5 are 1GB with 6 smaller.
Open IfoEdit. . Select “Create IFOs”.
Browse to "Joined Clips folder select VTS_01_1.VOB .
It should look like this:
Select “OK” .
Itâ€™s time to set the default language for the audio. I have to do both VIDEO_TS.IFO and VTS_01_0.IFO For the
VIDEO_TS.IFO, (1) click VIDEO_TS.IFO in IfoEdit, (2) double-click on the Audio, (3) select the language as English,
(4) press OK, (5) and click Save and click Yes when IfoEdit asks about saving BUP and file overwriting.
Do the same as above except this time select the VTS_01_0.IFO .
See the screenshot:
Quit IfoEdit .
Open IfoEdit again . This is necessary even if it doesn’t seem like it.
Open VTS_01_0.IFO. Click VOB Extras, make sure a to check only the options showed on the screenshot below.
Create a new folder name it “Mock Strip” and browse to the Destination directory select the “Mock Strip” folder.
Create a new VIDEO_TS folder inside the “Mock Strip” folder. That will be the destination.
See the screenshot:
Pressing OK will open the first Stream List which lists the existing audio and subpictures or subtitles. Press (1)
Check All and then (2) Strip it buttons. See the screenshot:
When the second Stream List which lists the VOB IDs appears, just press (1) Check All and (2) Strip it buttons
again, and close IfoEdit after the process finishes. See the screenshot:
When VobExtras has finished processing the VOBs quit IfoEdit.
Open the “MockStrip” VIDEO_TS folder.
You now need to Rename some files to match the names of the original movie IFO ,BUP & VOB files.
You will have more VOB files than in the Split D1 folder.
In the movie I’m working with these are VTS_03_n .
I Rename :
VTS_01_0.BUP to VTS_03_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO to VTS_03_0.IFO
VTS_01_0.VOB to VTS_03_0.VOB
& so on.
Copy & Paste a second copy of the Split/D1/VIDEO_TS folder to a folder named “Full Disc”
Copy & Paste the Renamed files from the “MockStrip” VIDEO_TS folder to the “Full Disc”/D1/VIDEO_TS folder.
Open the “Full Disc”/D1/VIDEO_TS folder. Don’t backup the Menu files when it asks.
Go to the “DVD Menus” pulldown. Select " Remove all menus from compilation" the “Yes”.
Double click on " Vts_Title 00 (Video_ts) – No Menu Selected:" then Select the Split/D1/VIDEO_TS( your original
Double click on:
Vts_Title 01 – 0.03: L:\DVDFABTEST\SPLIT\XXX\DISC_1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.VOB
Select the “Menu” VOB in this movie it is VTS_03_0.VOB .
Make sure “Add selected menus to compilation” & " Start Play with Root Menu in VTS_01 are checked.
" Select “Save Changes”
Select “Yes” when ask if you “Text for Dvd Volume Name Unchanged Continue Saving Changes?” .
If you want to Name the DVD volume Title Writer has the ability . Do that before you “Save Changes”.
It can also get rid of the warnings but I didn’t this time to keep it simple.
Tested with VLC & every button seemed to work.
