geoff_pell -> RE: PgcEdit Guide Feedback (4/13/2010 2:34:51 AM)
I will get the latest version of PgcEdit and take a look.
Two or three months ago I started on an update to my manual and found a variation that I had not seen before.
That could be useful but I did not have time to investigate it.
With the versions I used the video had to be constructed just as Joe has explained:
For example, if you were making a tutorial dvd that had 10 chapters. You could set it up to play 1,3,5, and 9, or 2,3,7,5, 1, and 8. That's not a typo, you could play them in any order, as many ways as you like, as long as you have room to put buttons on your menu.
But before you can make playlists, you have to set chapter markers.
With a Video_ts containing just a one second menu with just a single button and the video split up into chunks (Chapters) you can do just about anything that you want and certainly what you seems to be attempting to do.
Much of what you are asking is beyond what I know as I saw no reason to go that route.
Basically I attempted to create a guide that anyone could use and without any real need to understand any gobbledegook.
What is (or certainly was) necessary was to create a DVD along the lines already mentioned and then create a DVD file to modify in PgcEdit.
PgcEdit also had the capability to create an ISO file and then burn a DVD. But there have been changes in that area too.
I will take another look and get back here later.
I did not like Sony at all and as a result don't know how things are done there, but the resulting Video_ts file will be the same and suitable.
Have you opened your project Video_ts folder in PgcEdit and looked at the list of menu(s) and title(s)?
(I am not clear whether you have created a Video-ts or whether it failed?)
