Bitmap to VOB

Perhaps I should know this and am brain dead today, but can anyone explain the easiest way to turn a BMP into a tiny VOB?

Regards

Top of my head...

1. Use TMPGenc to convert BMP to a m2v and later author/remux with IfoEdit.

2.
  1. This way is much quicker.
  2. Create a single blank VOB with BlankVOB.
  3. Create new IFOs with IfoEdit.
  4. Use DVD Shrink's still image function to remux.

Don't forget to set your still time to 255 if you want to preview it later. I prefer this instead since it's free and unlimited as opposed to TMPGenc 30 day trial period with MPEG2 codec.

Note: ensure that you are using the appropriate resolution in BlankVOB. Don't know if you have a horizontal or vertical shot of your photo. You may have to trial and error but DVD Shrink adjusts nicely to image off-sized resolutions.

3.- You can make an avs file using dvd2svcd bmp loader.
-------------------------------------
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\DVD2SVCD\Avisynth2.5 Plugins\Avisynth BMP Loader.dll")
Blackness(2)
AssumeFPS(25)
ConvertToYUY2
BicubicResize(720,576)
AvisynthBMP_Loader("My_Path","My_file.bmp")
BicubicResize(720,576)
------------------------------------

With Blackness() you can control the numer of frames, and in CCE (or the encoder you use) you can control the bitrate (quality) of the resulting MPEG.

i used to use the TMPGenc method(8000 bitrate 2passVBR) but i found that DVD Shrink does a better job at converting pics to MPEG2.
never tried the dvd2svcd bmp loader, have to give it a shot.
i just love my jacket pictures

sweetness, I didn't know you could do that with shink! Can you briefly outline the procedure? Does the re-authoring mode allow that? I always though that shrink could only transcode and I was under the impression that converting a pic to an MPEG2 required some amount of encoding (for the video part).

I like to use dvdauthorgui to make stills if i want a jacket picture or a custom menu. It uses jpeg2yuv and mpeg2enc. Its one of the quickest methods that I've found. See it.

I'll have to check shrink's method too. I didn't know it did that either!

He, 2COOL, I like your method 2. When you have a blank VOB with the IFOs stored somewhere on HDD, it's a piece of cake to convert a BMP to VOB! Good idea!

well, it doesn't make a m2v file, it makes a vob that can be demuxed and resized.
just open any dvd and in re-author mode (shrink converts the pic to the resolution of the title)drag your tile and then with start/end move the end slider to to the beginning. you will get something like 15 frames. then compression setting is set to still image.
demux and resize for jacket picture.

You may also use the 2COOL method: just open a dummy DVD with only one VTS with one blank frame. Then, replace the black frame by your still image. Use the Still Image compression setting.

Thanks guys.

Rgds to all

The only similar parts of our method is that we used DVD Shrink and it's still image function. I know you corrected yourself but to clarify to others, you used re-author mode and set end sector. While I used Full disc backup only. Anyways, no personal offense from me.

@2cool
you know i still can't get shrink to still compress a dummy(blank) DVD. it just jumps back to automatic. anyone else have this happen? or know how to fix this?

oh about the jacket picture for the large J00___5L.MP2(or J00___6L.MP2) you don't need to resize but for the other two you would have too. but who has a tv that shows the other two anyways?

DVDShrink cannot compress a single frame, because it's a keyframe. That's normal.
However, you can replace it with another picture (BMP, JPG or PNG) if you select the Still Image compression. This works in Full Disc and Reauthor modes.

it works now. and i found the problem too. if you create the ifo with ifoedit .971 it works. but if you use .96 to create the ifo dvd shrink will not allow you to select still image, it jumps to automatic. try it.

Sorry to jump in again, but supposing I had a BMP (say it was copied with PgcEdit) and I wanted to overwrite the image with some text. Now the image isn't perfect because of the anamorphic representation and any text I overwrite on it will be distorted when played back.

And ideas on how to overcome this?

Regards
