dvdshrink v3.2 is released

Hi,

A new version has been released. The major improvement is much better transcoded picture quality. The quality (IMO) is comparable to instant copy. Also, you can replace a title with a still image

http://www.dvdshrink.org - the dvdadvdr.com mirror was working the last time I tried it.

Thanks to dvdshrink, ddlooping and all beta testers.

Regards,
Bob

Version 3.2.0.14 - 25 July 2004
-------------------------------

Added Quality Settings tab in the backup dialog, with option
to enable AEC "adaptive error compensation" algorithms.

Updated to NeroSDK 1.05, which includes support for burning
DVD-9 dual-layer media. Added DVD-9 target size in preferences
window.

Removed "burn with DVD Decrypter" checkbox and replaced with
a selectable backup target.

Added burn with CopyToDVD as a backup target, this appears if
CopyToDVD is installed.

Added automatic support for splitting ISO files if they are
saved to a FAT32 partition. In this case a .MDS file is
also output which can be burned with DVD Decrypter and mounted
by Daemon Tools. MDS files can additionally be opened with
DVD Shrink from the "Open Disc Image..." menu.

Added support for replacing a title with a custom image. A
default image from Guy Incognito is installed.

Added "InstallPath", "InstallApp" and "InstallHelp" keys to
the DVD Shrink registry.

Added "March by ZeF69" toolbar.

Fixed bug where Panscan and Letterbox subpicture streams could
be erroneously discarded in some circumstances.

Fixed bug if volume label exceeded 32 characters.

It's Christmas in July. A very unexpected addition.

I'm off to test it out.

It is similar to Recode. The length of the title is the same.

Possible bug in the new version. I can't get it to do the deep analsys at all. It wont let me check the box. This is with automatic settings.

valnar, if you have IC8/7 why don't you do the comparison?

insertdisk, it is a mistake on the version history page.
It should actually say "v3.2.0.15".

chipvideo, v3.1.7 deep analysis files are compatible with v3.2, so if you already analysed a title with v3.1.7 it will not have to be done again with v3.2.

IMHO... if you own IC7/8 and compare it to Shrink and you have "eye balls"... you will finally throw IC away immediately... A reasonable person cannot compare them and continue to waste your time and forum space on IC.. For all the bugs... inconsistencies... expense... lack of image quality... IC really is a dirty word...

SHRINK has been a great tool for long time... It needed two things... better image quality with less image softening... and a STILL IMAGE tool...

Both are here... you really could NOT ask for more... IMHO

Great job SHRINK !

Thanks for the positive feedback, geffroman.

I hope you're wearing your flame-proof jacket.

DVD Shrink and Recode should be the exact same program underneath.

Backwoods, nwg meant the "Still Image" feature is similar to Recode.
Amongst other things, the compression algorithms in v3.2 are nothing like those in Recode 2.

The AEC feature is interesting, anyone have feedback or info from testing it? I'm currently seeing if I can see a big difference with it enabled.

I just tried Battle Royale 2, picture quality was good, but shrink didn't detect/show the DTS track (?), and the Closed Captions did not work in my stand-alone (Pioneer DV343)

Shrink 3.1.7 did detect the DTS track, but Closed Captions didn't work either. And no, I didn't deselect them.
