From your post #3, it appears that the movie is project1 and the bonus features is project2, correct? Perhaps you can explain this to me. What program was used to split the DVD9 into 2 DVD5? In project1, I can see there are menus (main menu and scene selection, I presume) in VTS 1 and there is some video in Video Manager/Menus en/PGC 1 - what is it? In project2, there is a menu in Video Manager/Menus en/PGC 2 and a menu in VTS 1/Menus en/PGC 2, and perhaps there are others in other VTSs. If a well-known program was used to split, it should retain the original dvd structure and the bonus features button shouldn’t be deleted so as to make merging back later easier. From your screenshots, it appears this was done manually.
From your post #15, adding PGCs manually is not really efficient and can result in size differences as shown. The proper way is to copy the VTS in 1 project and add the copied VTS to the other project.
Anyways, I think posting screenshots alone will not help solve your problem quickly. So here’s what you do:
- Start from the beginning, nothing is modified, in project1 (main movie), right-click on VTS1/Menus en and ‘Convert menus to still’. Then File/Export modified files to some temporary folder, called it ‘project1’. Zip project1 folder up.
- As for project2 (special features), if there are no motion menus in VTS 3-7, then just zip up ALL the IFOs, VIDEO_TS.VOB, and VTS_01_0.VOB from the project2 source folder.
- Upload these 2 zip files to some file hosting site, like http://www.savefile.com
I’ll take a look further on how to make merging easier. Of course, there are different methods on how to do it. It’s a matter of preference.
