I have been trying to get a question answered from someone who might have an insight to CloneDVD 2… and I beleive you are probably the most knowledgable.
I have a question for anyone who uses CloneDVD2 and might know the answer to this. When I have a DVD that is on my HDD (put there by DVD Decrypter) and I am going to use CloneDVD2 to split the movie onto 2 dics with 100% quality (meaning no compression)… sometimes in the "log file’ I get the following message and sometimes I don’t:
Target size sufficient. Transcoding disabled.
What is transcoding? If each disc is only going to have 3.8 gigs on it… then it shouldn’t use compression, right. But sometimes I get the above and sometimes I don’t. It is random.
Example: Mystic River (36 Chapters = 7.3 gigs)
I am going to split it into 2 discs while keeping the menu system.
Disc 1: Chapter 1-18 (3.8 gig) with 100% on the bar
Disc 2: Chatper 19-36 (3.5 gig) with 100% on the bar
At this point it should say “Target size sufficient. Transcoding disabled” for both discs, but it doesn’t… which means it is compressing in some way. Why, since both discs are well under the limits even with the menus.
