Default PgcEdit 0.4.3

PgcEdit 0.4.3 released.
  • Preview (Windows only) by Jeanl, based on Jsoto's modification of DVD2AVI.
  • Little refresh bug after edition of the PTT table in the PGC Editor fixed.
  • Little bug fixed in Tcl/Tk code, related to the position of popup menus.
Some notes about the Preview:

You should be grateful to jeanl, who did the exe I use to display the preview. This was a big work! It is based on Jsoto's modification of DVD2AVI, which was originally programmed by LOLI.J. Thanks jeanl, jsoto and loli!
BTW, jeanl did also the exe used to display the background image in the menu buttons viewer. Thanks again, jeanl!

If you don't like the preview window 'always on top', you should change this option in the little system menu of the preview window.

There is still a problem when displaying a multi-angle cell: all angles are actually shown. But this may be considered as a feature, not a bug!

The source code of both preview executables will be available soon.


Also, there is now an unofficial mirror of the PgcEdit home in Poland, updated daily, thanks to RobertR, aka ideJ.
[EDIT:] The URL of the mirror has changed.

  • PgcEditPreview version 1.4, by Jeanl.
  • Menu buttons viewer: It is now possible to hide the buttons by clicking on the background image. (Windows only)

  • "New Dummy PGC" in title domain now create the dummy 'attached' to the current Title (ie, it inherit the current Title and TTN numbers.)

  • Rolled in most changes made by jsoto for vobblanker.

Default PgcEdit 0.4.7

PgcEdit 0.4.7 released.
  • New "Delete Last PGC in Domain" utility to remove the last PGC of the LUs in the current menu domain, or the last PGC of the current title domain. In title domain, the last PGC must be the last TTN of the titleset and the last Title in the DVD.
  • Added a check for incorrect number of VOB IDs in the VTS_C_ADT table as a workaround for a DVDShrink bug in reauthor mode (number of VOB IDs saved in the table is always 1).
  • As a SPRM cannot be used as the first operand of the IF comparison, the SPRM option has been removed from the GUI of the command ediror. Also, a command with a "if ( sprm(x) ... )" will now generate an ILLEGAL SPRM warning.
  • Show Menu Buttons did not work when there were no buttons in the first cell of the PGC.
  • PgcEdit Preview v 1.5: Fixed a rare problem where preview was displaying black frames instead of the video.

Default PgcEdit 0.4.8

PgcEdit 0.4.8 released.
  • Option "When saving, leave at least 32K of space between IFO and BUP?" to help protect your DVD against defects and scratches. Use with caution!
  • Added File -> Burn DVD / Create ISO to create an ISO image with mkisofs and optionally burn it with DVD Decrypter. This method supports the 32K space option above. For Windows only.
  • When loading the DVD, a warning is issued if there are empty (0 byte) menu VOBs. Also, the stream attributes of the VOBs are resetted to 0 when the menu VOB is removed by the 'Blank Out All Menu PGCs' function.
  • Trace mode: Removed "WARNING: Trying to play cell 1 of a dummy PGC!" dialog when a dummy PGC is played. However, this message is still present if the cell to play is not cell 1.
  • Fixed a rare bug occuring in Trace mode when the First-Play PGC was played (ie. when the current position was on the "*** post-command" label)

Default PgcEdit 0.4.9

PgcEdit 0.4.9 released.
  • Added the "DVDShrink Streams Remapping" macro to check if the DVDShrink option "Logical remapping of enabled streams" may be safely used in full disc mode with the current DVD.
  • Added a button "ISO639 language codes" in the Trace's Virtual Player Setup GUI to show the valid language codes.

  • Burn DVD: Added an option to mount the ISO image using Daemon-Tools.
  • Burn DVD: Added a confirmation dialog if the ISO image already exists.
  • Burn DVD: The VobBlanker_backup folder is now automatically excluded of the ISO image, like the PgcEdit_backup folder.

Also, look at the homepage. There are updated and new guides...

Default PgcEdit 0.5.0

PgcEdit 0.5.0 released.
  • BOV (Buttons Over Video in Title domains) support:
    - Replaced the executable button_dump.exe by a Tcl/Tk function, able to parse the menu buttons in menu domains. The menu buttons informations are therefore available also for Macintosh pre-OSX platforms.
    - Added "File->Find BOVs" and "Options->Automatically Launch BOV finder when a DVD is opened?" to find the BOVs at startup.
    - "Utilities -> Show Menu Buttons or BOVs" works now also for Title PGCs.
    - Added "Show BOVs" popup menu in the PGC selector on title PGCs.
  • Removed the "Options/Show libdvdread warnings when parsing menu buttons?".
  • "Fix number of streams in VMGM/VTSI_MAT tables" macro to change the number of streams in the VMGM_MAT and VTSM_MAT tables according to the number of streams enabled in the PGCs.
  • Domain Streams Attributes check now if the current number of streams match the number of streams enabled in the PGCs.
  • Domain Streams Attributes allow now to edit the audio stream types and parameters. (Still no support to edit the karaoke parameters.)
  • Open DVD: If there are empty VOB files, an option to delete them is now presented to the user when the DVD is loaded.
  • Added a Burn DVD/Create ISO toolbar icon. (Windows only)
  • Added some missing credits and thanks in the About dialog.
  • Kill Playback macro: New algorithm to determine if it is safe to use the macro. It is safe to kill playback if there are no menu buttons, and if there are no cell commands jumping outside of the current PGC.
  • Blank Out PGCs in Domain: The "Kill Playback only when it's safe" option now uses the new Kill Playback macro.
  • Cell type flag SCR Discontinuity (System Clock Reference) renamed to STC Discontinuity (System Time Clock). (Recommandation of Mpucoder)
  • Burn DVD: The MenuShrinkBackup is now removed automatically from the DVD.
  • Added the audio and subpic stream IDs in Domain Streams Attributes GUI and in Info -> Streams.
  • PgcEdit_Preview.exe v1.6 by Jeanl. Fixes an aspect ratio bug with VCD and SVCD resolutions, and another one with garbage addeded in the bottom of the image when the vertical resolutions was not a multiple of 32.
  • When a cell is reassigned or blanked, the Seamless Joint flag is now cleared.
  • Trace mode: The target of LinkPTT commands was wrong (was pre-commands of the PGC instead of target chapter.)
  • Trace mode: A NOP command in a menu button or BOV is now ignored.
  • Highlight Target/Jump to Target did not work in some cases with CallSS.
  • Menu buttons viewer bug: After selecting another frame with the < and > buttons, the background image was not displayed for VMGM menus.
  • Fixed a bug with the Video Attributes display. The resolution, bitrates and 'top & bottom cropped' flags were wrong. The saved attributes were OK, though.
  • Fixed a bug when writing a PTT_SRPTI table containing PTTs assigned to program 0. Yes, I've seen a DVD with such bizarre things!
  • Fixed a bug occurnig after a Delete Program. The program map table was not padded to an even number of bytes.
  • Misc. little bug fixes.

I like the menu editor very much.

Is there anyway to use the test mode of Decrypter with PgcEdit?

If I tick the burn with Decrypter option in PgcEdit. It doesn't seem to be able to do a test first.

I like to do a test burn before actually burning when upgrading Decrypter for a few times.

Not sure. But you could just make the ISO and not burn. Then open DVD Decrypter and use it in test burn mode.

I don't think there's been any changes to the burning routines, but there sure were a lotta changes!

That is what I do at the moment. It would be nice to set of a ISO creation then automatically test and burn. I could walk away and come back later.

Ask r0lZ on doom9 - it's just an mkisofs parameter - won't take him long to do it.
