Arrow PgcEdit ver 8.0 (a DVD IFO editor) *** UPDATE *** 23 January

I wrote PgcEdit for me, but I finally decided to release it as GPL free software. So it's here.

The main purpose of PgcEdit is to allow an easyer editing of the PGC commands than with IfoEdit... but I have added some functions that I find useful. Just try it to see.
There is a short documentation (in english or french) along with the program, and on my homepage.

Download PgcEdit here: http://www.videohelp.com/~r0lZ/pgcedit/

Have fun!

Default PgcEdit 0.3.4

PgcEdit v0.3.4 released.

Changes: version history

The menu buttons information is now also available for Linux users. Also, there is now a wrapped, standalone version for Linux users.

The homepage has changed, too. I have added some links, and there is now a GUI to be notified when the page changes (seems to be really SPAM proof.)

I highly recommand to use this version: it is probably the most bugfree since the first version, thanks to beta tests from many users, specially 2COOL and $$$, at Doom9 forum.

Default PgcEdit 0.3.5

PgcEdit v0.3.5 released!

Change log:
0.3.5 (October 4, 2004)
A. The menu buttons informations are now available also for Mac OS X users.
E. Blank Out all PGCs in Domain: added a confirmation dialog when overwriting the backup of the VOB file. Tooltips added for all options.
E. The PGC selector may now be placed on any side of the main window. The PGC labels are now more legible.
E. Tools configuration: Added argument substitution %n (Number of TitleSets)
E. New option "Use file browser instead of folder browser for Open/Save folder operations?"
F. Fixed a big bug with TTN number: was always the PGC number. The Title's entry PGC number were therefore also wrong. The TTN numbers are now correctly retrieved from the VTS_PTT_SRPT tables.
F. Open DVD: It is now possible to open a DVD located in a directory even if a VIDEO_TS subdir exist in this directory. The VIDEO_TS directory is now automatically selected only if there is no VIDEO_TS.IFO in the parent.
F. Set DVD-Text General Name: maximum string length bug hopefully fixed.
F. The total time of a multi-angle PGC is now calculated for Angle 1 only.
F. Command Editor CSetCLnk and CSetLnk bug fixed: When the IF 2nd operand is a value AND the IF checkbox is off, the Set's Value option was disabled.
F. Missing file in the source archive added.

Mac OSX users should refer to the homepage for installation instructions (Thanks to Damien).

Also, on the homepage is a new HTML version of 2COOL's guide "How to Completely Blank Out a Titleset (VTS) Using PgcEdit", and a new "PgcEdit Anleitung" by Tobi. Thank you, folks!

Default PgcEdit v0.3.6

PgcEdit v0.3.6 released.

Download

Added:
  • Added the "PGCs params and Cell table" menu to dump all PGCs.
  • Added the "Remove Parental Managment" utility.
  • Thanks to jsoto, The VOB/Cell ID remapper (in the PGC Editor window, VOB/Cell ID buttons) has now the ability to append a new blank cell to the VOB. Handy to blank out a specific cell. Currently for Windows only.
Enhancements:
  • Changed the "Info/PGC commands" to "Info/PGC". Now, dump also the PGC parameters and the Cell Table.
  • "Find Unused GPRMs" now search also for GPRMs in the menu button cmds.
  • In the disassembly of integer values, the ASCII equivalent of the value is now displayed only if it is a valid language code. (No more "..")
  • The first column of the Cell Table in the PGC Editor is now the Number of Buttons for a Menu PGC (and still the Chapter Number for a Title).
  • New popup menu on the Search fields of the main window and the text viewer, to clear, copy and paste in the search field.
  • The Copy and Cut buttons in the main window are now placing the command in the clipboard without the "{" and "}" characters if only one command is copied/cutted. Handy to paste the hex codes in the search field.
  • Command Editor: When pasting in the hexadecimal field, the command is now automatically validated, and transferred in the GUI.
  • The number of buttons shown in the PGC labels is now "?b." if the VOB file is missing or not readable. Was "0b." before.
  • Now, the "Cell Type Flags" editor doesn't allow to select an Angle Type if the Angle Block flag is not checked.
  • "Kill PGC Playback" changes now also all Link to Cell, PG or PTT pre commands to GOTOs (only if the Highlight Button parameter is not used.)
  • Documentation updated (and english doc corrected.)
Bug fixes:
  • "Kill PGC Playback" will now remove the post commands after a Kill if the total number of commands exceeds the fatal limit of 128.
  • "Import First-Play Clip" and "Import Title's Intro Clip" bugs fixed.

Default PgcEdit 0.3.7

PgcEdit v0.3.7 released.

version history:[list][*] A. Blanking a cell (in VOB/Cell ID remapper) works now for all platforms.[*] A. It is now possible to enter an ASCII string (for example a language code) in any numeric field of the Command Editor by prefixing the string with ' (single quote character, aka apostrophe). Example: 'en = 25966[*] E. PGC Editor: GoUp (Return) value can now be Resume (0xFFFF) for a Menu PGC.[*] E. "Enable Navigation Buttons" has now an option to enable the GoUp (Return) button to resume to the Title domain from any non-dummy Menu PGC.[*] E. Calls Cross References: now display also the PrevPGC, NextPGC and GoUpPGC links, but do not display anymore the calls to the same PGC. The Unreferenced PGCs list is therefore more accurate.[*] E. Disassembly: New error messages:
  1. Set gprm(n) ?=(rnd)
  2. Set gprm(n) /=(div)
  3. Set gprm(n) %=(mod)
  4. (SetAMXMD) Set Karaoke Audio Mixing Mode =(mov)
  5. (SetGPRMMD) Set gprm(n) =(mov) [/list=1]
  6. E. The value field of SetAMXMD is now replaced by 6 checkboxes in the GUI.
  7. E. Selecting an item in the Command Editor menu "Numerically -> 40-D0: Set" now update the value/GPRM/SPRM radiobuttons automatically in the GUI.
  8. F. As the SetGPRMMD source operand may not be a SPRM, the SPRM option has been removed from the Command Editor GUI.
  9. F. 'Blank all PGCs in Domain' now correctly update the video, audio and subpic attributes in VMGM_MAT/VTSI_MAT/VMG_VTS_ATRT tables.
  10. F. 'Blank all PGCs in Domain' (when blanking w/o kill playback): the video was sometimes unplayable. Now fixed (thanks to jsoto)
  11. F. Command Editor: The maximum number of PGCs is now 32767. (Was 65535)
  12. F. Set used with AND, OR, XOR or RND was unable to disable the LinkNoLink.
  13. F. GOTOs in pasted lines with Paste Replace were renumbered in some cases.
  14. F. New PGC: When creating a new PGC in the Title domain, the VTS_PGCI table is now correctly updated.
  15. F. Target highlighting and "Jump To Target", when used in a multi-PGC title, were unable to find the target of JumpVTS_PTT and LinkPTT if the chapter was in another PGC belonging to the same Title.
  16. F. Error launching PgcEdit when the TEMP directory is not writable trapped.
  17. F. Error in the Uninstall procedure fixed.

Default PgcEdit 0.3.8

PgcEdit 0.3.8 released
  • New Edit -> Append to Scratchbook function to add the selected commands directly to the scratchbook. This option is also available in the menu buttons viewer (with the clipboard functions.)
  • PGC Editor: added the ability to edit the PG Playback Mode (sequential, random or shuffle mode.)
  • It is now possible to paste commands in full text format (copied with 'Copy as Text') directly in the main listbox. Note that the *** labels are not pasted: you may therefore paste the pre, post and cell commands in one operation, but all commands will be pasted in the same section.
  • New option "Include [hex codes] in Info / commands dumps ?".
  • Help -> ISO639 Language Codes now lists also the decimal and hex values.
  • Since CSetCLnk, CSetLnk and SetCLnk must have an IF condition, the IF checkbox has been removed from the GUI.
  • Now, the "New 'Play All' Title" utility display the new TTN number in the PGC selector.
  • Undo now mark the DVD as modified.
Also, thanks to Baldrick, there is now a new mirror of the PgcEdit's homepage at www.videohelp.com.

Default PgcEdit 0.4.0

PgcEdit 0.4.0 released
  • Trace mode!
  • PGC Editor: It is now possible to edit the Programs map by clicking on the Prog buttons.
  • PGC Editor: Added a Chapter (PTT) table editor.
  • In the menubuttons viewer, clicking on the Jump to Target button will now close the viewer (but only if the target is found, and is another PGC.)
  • SetSTN: Changed the labels for audio value 15 and subpic 62 from 'set to none' to 'not set', which IMHO is more coherent.
  • PGC Editor: New tooltips on the stream assignments buttons.
  • The stream numbers in the PGC selector were starting at 1 instead of 0.
  • The subpic stream assignment slider range was 0 to 15 instead of 0 to 31.
  • The VTS Sectors adjustment was wrong with empty (0 byte) menu VOBs.
  • Command Editor: Little bug fixed when a value field was empty and the "B" button was selected.
About Trace mode
The Trace mode is still in a somewhat experimental state.

Known limitations:
  • No documentation. Sorry
  • Since the virtual playback is not in real time, the behavior of the NAV counter and of the GPRMs in counter mode cannot be simulated. SetNVTMR and SetGPRMMD (in counter mode) are therefore only partially supported.
  • There is no preview of the video (for now).
  • There are certainly still many bugs in the code. However, since the Trace mode do not modify anything in the current DVD, you may use it safely.
Check out the Jeanl's Guides for PgcEdit for excellent examples of the usage of the Trace mode.


Please note
I have changed the distribution status of PgcEdit from freeware to donnationware.
I have already spend months to develop PgcEdit. The new Trace mode was verry hard to do, and the other features I will add are also involving many time in develpoment. So, if you like and use PgcEdit, please donate!
To make a donation, click on the PayPal button on my homepage. (Actually, there are 2 buttons, so you cannot miss them. )
Many thanks in advance.

  • Little cosmetics changes.
  • Fixed Save DVD bug after 'New dummy PGC' in Title domain.
  • Trace: LinkTopCell, LinkPrevCell and LinkNextCell bug: The jump was done to the cell following the real target cell.
Thanks to the generous donators!
@ the other: Don't forget to donate...

Default PgcEdit 0.4.2

PgcEdit v0.4.2 released.

No new features, but it's an important bugfix.
  • The VTS_PTT_SRPTI table was not correctly rebuild when the DVD was saved for multi-PGCs titles.
  • Bug fixed in the menubuttons viewer when displaying a still frame menu with audio: the first frame of the next cell was shown. (Windows only)
  • Bug in Tcl/Tk libraries that occasionally crashed the menu button viewer (with image preview) hopefully fixed. (Probably Windows only)
