First, is this the right forum?
I need to know how to create new chapters (every 5 minutes)
against a complete DVD folder that was generated via
NeoDVD and resized (downward) with DVDSHRINK.
I have tried “Create IFO’s”, Get VTS Sector, VOB Extras,
and Menu Extras, but, I always wind up with the same
chapters as before, which is only ONE (chapter 1 - that’s all).
There must be a simple step-by-step way to take a complete
DVD folder (with the two ifo files, a bup file, and the vob
files) that is compliant and ready to burn or be played
with PowerDVD, and make just one change - make
a new chapter for every 5 minutes of video, given
that there is only ONE CHAPTER to start with.
What happens is that NeoDVD is really a good and solid
program than encodes a live video stream in real time,
creates all the DVD-related files while it goes for as much
harddrive space you have, and, when you stop, it cleans
things up for a few seconds and presto, you have a
solid DVD folder on you harddrive ready to go.
It is usually too large, so I use DVDSHRINK which takes
about 20-30 minutes, but that also works like a champ.
The result can be played with PowerDVD, or burned to
a disc and played on stand alone dvd player - BUT,
there is ONLY ONE CHAPTER. I am thinking that
NeoDVD kept it very simple in their approach, and,
that is commendable because it really works good.
So, if anyone can help me figure out how to get IFOEDIT
to massage this good DVD folder so that there is one
chapter for every 5 minutes of video, please reply.
I have already tried the options mentioned above many
times in various configurations - IFOEDIT does a lot of
work and rebuilding and reporting and makes me think
it is really going to town with it - but, after all is done,
I still have only ONE chapter - blast.
