VobBlanker 2.0.0.2 released

Although the GUI is almost the same, there is a big change in the internal engine, to honor the VOB layout sequence, so be careful using this release, some bugs can be inside...

Changelog v2.0.0.1:
  • Change: VB now honors VID/CID sequence in VOB layout (original or reordered)
  • Added: Ability to reorder a VOB following the VID/CID sequence. Also ability to fill the sequence "holes" (if exist) with blank cells. Useful to re-process a VobBlanker 1.X backup and recover the VOB layout.
  • Added: Possibility to change to blank instead to delete the unreferenced cells (unreferenced material already present or created by VobBlanker)
  • Added: Font color management in Log window: Warnings are in Orange and Errors in Red
  • Added: Motion2Still: Checkbox to select between 1 sec or 0 sec of still time in blanked cells
  • Added: Refresh the status area of main dialog when loading the DVD.
  • Added: Menu initial and final size in main dialog
  • Added: Two new options: Backup in VIDEO_TS folder and Multiple backups
  • Added: Quit confirmation MessageBox.
  • Change: Global sizes now are three: Initial, Final and To be Processed
  • Change: Some defaults modified: Next and Prev PGCN pointers defaulted to TRUE. Clear audio/subs when blanking defaulted to FALSE.
  • BugFix: Was exploring audios out of the VOBs if the file was too short instead of quiting when loading the DVD.
  • BugFix: Reusing a PGC in a LU when the reused PGC was also processed (i.e: motion2still) did not work
  • BugFix: Some size calculations were not correct if Process menu or process title were unchecked.

Thanks jsoto

In the next update, are you going to make VobBlanker able to open the files by dragging the parent folder to the VobBlanker window?

For example:

PARENT
|
-----VIDEO_TS
|
-------DVD files

Regards and many many thanks

WOW, what can change in a year. for the good and the bad.
just feeling a little blue (no pun intended blutach )

Certainly no need for jsoto to have ever made apologies. His work has always been exemplary, and I find it amazing that he still refuses a donation.

C'mon jsoto - reconsider and let us show you how we all feel about your marvellous work!

Regards

Hi all,

Thanks to all for your comments.

I had some experience in "standard C", mainly in embedded SW, because I used it in my professional life. But I was a newbie in C++ and Visual C++. I've now some experience, but there are a lot of areas where I'm completely lost, mainly in Visual C.

About donations, well (at least at the moment) I'm not going to change my mind. Your comments and your support are more than enough for me. I prefer them than your money

Sorry, I had it in mind, but I forgot it completely in this build, so , yes, I'll do it.
BTW, do you like the new log? The default is blue...

Great work, jsoto!

BTW, PgcEdit 0.5.2 (to be released soon) is able to rocognize the VB's multiple backups, located in VIDEO_TS or in the parent folder, and to exclude them from the DVD size computation, and from the ISO image, when burning the DVD.
In the meantime, I've also added the PgcEdit's Incremental Backup feature.

[EDIT:] The new version will be 0.5.2, not 0.5.3.

And I wouldn't want to change the default at all!

I also very much like the multiple VobBlanker_backup files in whatever place you want them option. Thank you for implementing that. Will let you know how it goes for me after I try it out a few times on several different projects (and fill up my hard drive, no doubt!).

Oh yes! The DVD loads in a flash now, too! Fabulous.

And the VCIDs in order I'm sure is a good change.

Thanks again.

Regards

It seems to me that VobBlanker does not save changes made under "More Settings". When I quit VobBlanker and start it again the default settings are back. I haven't saved settings to registry (or atleast I don't recall doing so) as I have few older versions of VobBlanker (in separate folders) in use too.

Edit: Typo

Yes, if you want different values at the start up than the default ones, settings have to be saved to the Registry.

VobBlanker versions use the same set of Registry values. If you want to have different set of values, change one of the names of the executables, i.e.: VobBlanker_old.exe

For the record:
VobBlanker stores the settings under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\jsoto's tools\VobBlanker

If the exe name changes (VobBlanker_old), the folder name changes too
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\jsoto's tools\VobBlanker_old

You can delete the whole "jsoto's tools" tree, but the folders will be created again in the program startup. Keys are stored only if you do it from VobBlanker main menu.

I cannot enable the still button on cell list of a Titleset PGC.

There are a lot of episode DVDs where the intros and credits cells are repeated, and need too much of place.
Converting that to stills would be very usefull.

Why do you want a still in this case? Do the cells have BOV? If not, you can blank or replace them.

If they have BOV, well, VobBlanker does not scan for BOV in Titles..., in fact I'm doing nothing with BOV.

jsoto, I think frank would like to be able to still credits and intros, not menus. I can see the reason, if credits take a lot of time...
That's something that vobblanker or menushrink can't do at this time... Would it be hard to add that to vobblanker on a cell-by-cell basis? Since there's no menu, you wouldn't have to deal with buttons, highlights etc. Just do the i-frame selection, keep the audio or not, and you're done...

Still'ing in a cell basis without BOV is feasible in VB and seems easy, but I like the challenges , so I prefer to consider also the case of BOV...

But, currently I'm in lazy mode , just waiting for bug reports in VB 2.0

I replaced a cell in a menu but the playback time stays the same as the original cell. The cell I replacing with has a longer play time.

wow! How long does vobblanker take to process a DVD on your system!!!!! Can't be that long, can it?!
Here's a suggestion: use the power options (in XP) to shutdown your PC after 1 hour!
