Removing previews (but preserving menu)

What are some good methods to edit out the previews in a movie while leaving everything else intact? I’ve tried DVDClone2, and it seems to work very well, however the cost is prohibitive. Are there free or less expensive methods to do the same?

Thanks in advance.

DVDRemake can do this. Look in the DVDRemake subforum here at cdfreaks. There is a demo you can download, but the program isn’t free.

PGCEdit is a free tool for this type of thing. http://download.videohelp.com/r0lZ/pgcedit/
There are lots of guides listed at that site to help you use the program.

As kerry56 stated,PGCEdit… you can also use VobBlanker ,both free powerful tools IMO… :slight_smile:

Any pros and cons of PgeEdit vs. VObBlanker?

Blanker is more user friendly IMHO. Does pretty much all you’ll need.
PGCEdit is more complex though if you’d like…actually since they’re free, you can get them both…:iagree::slight_smile:

If you want to do it hard way go with PgcEdit, othervise stick to [I]Kerry56[/I] suggestion and get DVDRemake.
It is much more user friendly and all in one. You can even merge few DVD with it.
In Remake you have a choice to hide what you do not want, which will not change command structure or reauthor DVD with commands the way you like it, in that case you delete what you do not want.

If you want to do it easy free and don’t mind losing the menus,then use DVDShrink in Re-author mode…Yes PGCedit and vobBlanker take a little work and effort but they work…to each his own!..:slight_smile:

I did not mean to put PgcEdit down, I use it also, it has its advantages and it is an excellent software, but for starters in command business I found Remake to be easier to comprehend.

@CDuncle,
Didn’t think you were! :slight_smile: …but yeah I guess for a newbie (no offense to anyone) pgcEdit and VobBlanker tend to be a little confusing at first…I know it was,and still is for me when I use it occasionally…Nowadays I just let DVDFab Platinum do most of my backups…
Regards…
