Lightbulb PgcEdit ver 0.6.1 - a DVD IFO and Menu editor

Introduction

PgcEdit is a DVD IFO and Menu editor designed to allow the modification of the navigation commands and parameters of an already authored DVD structure.

PgcEdit is also an excellent tool to learn how a DVD works, with his powerful Trace function.

Since ver 0.6.0, PgcEdit is also the first program able to burn a Double Layer DVD-Video on DL DVD+R or DL DVD-R, with an interactive interface (including a preview), to select the position of the layer break.

PgcEdit is free and open source (GPL license).




What is PgcEdit?

Any person interested in understanding or modifying the operation of a DVD knows IfoEdit, an excellent freeware program which makes it possible to modify (almost) all the information contained in the DVDís IFO files. However, while IfoEdit allows you to modify (most of) the commands and parameters associated with PGCs (Program Chains), it has many limitations, the chief one being that it is very difficult to have an overall view of the DVDís command structure.

PgcEdit was initially written to supplement IfoEdit. PgcEdit offers an easy to understand view of the DVDís programming. It allows you to edit, via easy to use GUIs, all the DVDís commands with their legal values, without any limitations except those imposed by the DVD standard.

PgcEdit also has an extremely powerful but easy to use PGC Editor, where you can make changes to stream assignments, subtitle colors, the chapter table, cell and PGC still times, the cell flags, VOB/Cell IDs and many others, again through an easy and intuitive GUI.

PgcEditís powerful, fully-featured Menu Editor allows users to edit menus, by creating, deleting, hiding, changing the location, size, commands and colors of the buttons.

Furthermore, PgcEdit has a Trace mode allowing users to follow the flow of the commands as they are played by a real player, while watching how the GPRMs, SPRMs and PUOs change. With this simulation, PgcEdit may be used as a powerful debugging tool.

With PgcEdit, you may blank out whole titlesets easily, which is a very handy space-saving feature. As well, from PgcEdit, you can burn your project.

PgcEdit is also a basic DVD authoring tool Ė by using its New DVD command, combined with importing menus and titles and its Command Editor, you can author your DVD from scratch.

PgcEdit is written in Tcl/Tk, which is an interpreted scripting language. Tcl/Tk was chosen for its power in building interactive user interfaces and for the fact that a Tcl/Tk application can run on any platform which has a Tcl/Tk interpreter, including Linux, Windows and MacOSX.
