Sure, you may wish to omit certain episodes from TV discs when the episodes are not always in separate Titles…I had this problem recently when I wanted to backup a disc, but I didn’t care about the third episode on a five-episode disc. I would have just kept it on there anyway – but then I’d have to compress the ones I wanted or split them all over two discs. When DVD9 discs become cheaper/more available, this may not be an issue, but there are other cases where greater editing freedom would be nice…
You may wish to keep one or two trailers when there are several, but the ones you want are not together…or for example on adult films, you want to remove the scenes with the ugly girls heh heh. Or you could even remove “added” footage from “extended” movies so that you are left with the original theatrical release version (for example: the original, REAL Star Wars movies, not the modified junk which George Lucas has chosen to put on DVD).
Plus I just like having freer editing options anyway. The other “CloneDVD” program by DVD X Player (at clonedvd.net) does have the checkbox editing I mentioned, which allows you to easily remove or keep stuff in any order (no video preview though). However, judging by what I’ve read at other forums, that program is not very good as far as encoding and compatibility are concerned.
Actually this can already be done if you just slide the beginning and end point selectors so that only the main movie (in the middle) is selected.
Anyways I hope my requests make sense now, and I hope they can be made part of the program some day. Still a great program in the meantime…!
