I’ve got DVD of “Meet Me in St. Louis” that I play every year at Halloween and Christmas.
I’d like to back it up, but the whole movie won’t fit onto a single DVD-R without some loss in quality.
So I’d like to divide it between two DVDs. This should be easy, because the movie itself is divided into four sections, one for each of the seasons of the year. The first and longest section is Summer, so I’d like to put that on the first DVD, and then the remaining three sections on the second DVD.
The trouble is that the transition from the Summer segment to the Autumn segment is a visual dissolve accompanied by a musical crossfade. I usually use DVD Fab to reauthor my backups when I need to put a film onto two disks.
On disk 1 I’d like to be able to fade out the audio and video at the end of the Summer section and then on disc 2 fade in the audio and video of the Autumn section. But I don’t think DVD Fab has the capability of doing that, does it?.
I’m wondering if there’s a free program that will run under Win XP that I could use to add these fade outs and fade ins to smooth the transitions between disks when I have to divide a movie between two DVDs.
