Default DVD-RB and VobBlanker

This may be a dumb question but I want to be sure...

If I encode a movie with RB and HCenc and later use VobBlanker to edit a menu, do I lose the encoding? Or does VobBlanker leave that alone?

It copies the entire DVD along with the edited menu to another hard disk folder or, you can just overwite the menu with the changes in the same folder.

I prefer to edit before encoding with whatever program I want to use because it then can be burned straight away.

Be careful with using VobBlanker before when cutting titles. I have found its time maps are incorrect. If you do this, fix the time maps in PgcEdit before running DVD Rebuilder.

But, you can do anything to the menus - before or after.

I like to just work on one or 2 VTSs and tick "use input folder" to keep everything together.

Regards

Thanks. I figured I was okay, but just wanted to double check.

Ideally, I'd edit menus first, but I missed something before encoding.

Hi BluTach,

Would the timemap issue go away ... if the person runs the PgcEdit first and delete unwanted titlesets and stop playback of some of the portions ... then go to VobBlanker and Blank out the stuff that we have inop'ed in PgcEdit and run the DVD!???

Thanks,
G!

Blanked stuff does not suffer from a timemap issue.

Remember also that PgcEdit has a call to FixVTS (current domain) whjich is very handy and does not involve VobBlanker.
