2COOL's Movie Only Guide (another method)

2COOL’s “Movie Only” Method

Here’s my method I use to keeping “movie only”. I preferably use it on movies that can fit on a single disk but it can be also used in prelude to splitting. It’s may be quicker than using IFoedit to process movie only when you get proficient at it.

_______________________________________________
1. Assuming your movie in VTS_01_*, rip the following files to your harddrive.

VIDEO_TS.*
VTS_01_0.*
VTS_01_*.VOB

Now if your movie is in ,say another titleset, like VTS_03_*, then rip that also with the ones above. For your DVD to work, it needs at least your VIDEO_TS and VTS_01 files to work.
_______________________________________________
2. Using IFOedit, open VIDEO_TS.IFO
_______________________________________________
3. Get VTS Sectors
_______________________________________________
4. Region Free all your IFOs
_______________________________________________
5. In VIDEO_TS.IFO / VMGM_MAT / First Play PGC / PGC Command Table, right click on first pre-command and select “Edit Command”. Select (JumpTT) Jump to Title. In your Title Nr., input a “1” with assumption your movie is Title 1.

(JumpTT) Jump to Title: 1
_______________________________________________
6. Save VIDEO_TS.IFO
_______________________________________________
For next steps, I will use VTS_01_0.IFO as our movie IFO and VTS_PGC_1 as our movie’s program chain.

7. Go to VTS_01_0.IFO / VTS_PGCITI / VTS_PGC_1 / Prohibited user operations. Double-left click on “Prohibited user operations” for options window.
_______________________________________________
8. Press “Clear All” button.
_______________________________________________
9. Check all your "Menu Call" options and press OK.

You won’t see your changes right away. To refresh, click on another directory and then click back on VTS_PGC_1 to return to see you updated Prohibited use options. We won’t be keeping the menus so no use having your DVD remote calling them.
_______________________________________________
10. While your still in VTS_PGC_1, go down to your PGC Command Table. Change your post commands value to 0.
_______________________________________________
11. At this point, we need to know what happens when you chapter skip to the last chapter. Save VTS_01_0.IFO, Get VTS Sectors, and DVD-play your movie. Go to your second to the last chapter and then do a forward chapter skip. Does the movie keep playing or does it abruptly stop. If it doesn’t then go to step 18. If the movie abruptly stops when you chapter skip, then go to next step.

_______________________________________________
12. Go to VTS_01_0.IFO / VTS Overview / PGC 1 (program chain) and double click on the last cell to preview if it’s part of the movie or is a blank screen or logo. You can also tell by the it’s time. It’ll be less than a normal chapter time. Look at the example below.

[Ch 31] [Pg 15] [Cell 16] [V/C Id: 3/ 8] : time: 00:04:18.09 / 30 fps
[Ch 32] [Pg 16] [Cell 17] [V/C Id: 5/ 1] : time: 00:00:00.25 / 30 fps

Chapter 32 is our last chapter and it lasts only a quarter of a second. We need to get rid of our chapter.
_______________________________________________
13. Go to VTS_01_0.IFO/VTS_PGCITI/VTS_PGC_1/ PGC Program Map section.
_______________________________________________
14. Select your last cell by right-clicking and select "delete program" option.
_______________________________________________
15. Save VTS_01_0.IFO
_______________________________________________
16. Get VTS Sectors.
_______________________________________________
17.. Press DVD Play button to preview and test your movie and check to see if chapter skipping to end stops your movie. We don’t want it to stop. We want it to keep playing till the end of credits and it should stop on it’s own. That’s pretty much it for keeping the movie.
_______________________________________________
18. If you need to strip your movie of unwanted audio and subtitles then you can do so now.

Hi 2Cool,

I find your guide very useful. I've been able to back up a few movies using your guide without any problems until now. I'm trying to back-up 40Days40Nights with this method. I need to shrink the movie because after stipping all the other languages, previews, subtitles, the movie is still big.

I guess i can remove some of the menus as well but they are located in the beginning of the movies cells and at this point I still don't have the expertise (yet) to do that.

This is the problem:

I stipped the VIDEOS* and VTS01* using DVDDecrypter
(i was able to load the movie into DVD Shrink 2.3)
I went through the guide so that it skipped the menu and went straight through to the movie
(i was able to load the movie into DVD shrink)
Once I took out the other languages and subtitles with IFOEdit, i was unable to load the movie into DVD shrink. (Runtime error)

I think (not sure) it has to do with the angles? My next step is to try to shrink the movie and then do the stripping of the languages/subtitles.

I want to try to take out the angles with IFOEdit but 095 has that option disabled. I tried with the older version of IFO edit but is seems to render my project un-playable. Any input would be great. Thanks.

Is there a better way to do this? and do have any idea if I'm doing anything wrong?

I think back when I came up with this old guide, DVDShrink wasn't around. Since you have to shrink your movie anyway, you could use DVD Shrink's reauthoring feature to do a movie only, which is what you want. You could strip out whatever audio and subtitles you don't want too. Here's the re-authoring guides for you to use and also this post guide to use after stripping out any streams.
