Bingo, you have a text file with the chapters that you marked. No copy-n-paste required.
Thanks for your valuable clarifications.

I have been aware of the chapter file feature and use it where appropriate, but IMHO it is more a detour than a shortcut if I only need the current timecode value in the windows clipboard (in order to pass it to another application).

By the way, assume you have a timecode value (as a result of another apllication) in the windows clipboard and you want VRD to jump straight to that value, how would you do it in VRD?

A simple COPY/PASTE of the current timecode to/from windows clipboard (like in Premiere Elements and Mpeg2Schnitt) is a needed feature which I strongly miss in VRD!

Can you add a conversion function from Matroska XML to tsmuxer accepted format?

ChapterGen cannot currently import chapters in XLM format, but it can import chapters in OGM format. MKVExtractGUI2 lets you extract MKV chapters in OGM format (MKVCleaver cannot do this AFAIK), so just import the OGM chapter file into ChapterGen and export it to tsMuxeR Meta format.

I started to improve ChapterGen to support chapter names, online database support for importing, more i/o formats including xml, better cli handling etc, but stoped because real life problems. Maybe i will continue some day.

Btw, thanks guys for supporting and using this tool

Thanks very much for this excellent tool...

Great tool, perhaps you can release the source and others can work on it.

Awesome, great I look forward to helping. One of the features I would want to add is ability to open point to a video file (AVI, MP4,MKV) and have it read duration of video via mediainfo DLL and then based on this allow user to choose to create chapters based on # of chapters wanted or create chapter every # minutes with edit window to allow user to name chapters if they want. Then it would then be cool if it could invoke MKVmerge via command line to integrate the chapters into the MKV. Just some of the things I would look to add.

I have also always envisioned a tool that would read in an MKV or AVI file and allow user to scan thru the video quickly like AVIDemmux allows and when on a frame be able to click create chapter. So an interactive way to create the chapter file. And then with the ability to generate a chapters thumbnail jpg from the selected chapters.

BTW - looks like from first post that jdobbs provided you some code to use, make sure to get his clearance before open sourcing that. Also what language is the tool written in?

Oops, sorry. Got sidetracked.

I know of no way to cut-n-paste time code values in VRD. But, if you have the value as a frame count and set VRD to frame values, then cut-n-paste does work.

Still looking forward to this being open sourced as I am unaware of any projects like this that community can improve on work on. Are there any open source Chapter generators? I could not find any in my search.

What language is the tool written in?

Hi, could you either release the source, or create a Mac version? and also, can you support creating either an MKV output, or XML output?

Some work in done, xml support is added, along with chapter naming function. I working now on online tagging support.

@marcusj0015, i don't think so is Mac version possible coz VB6 is restricted to windows only.

online tagging support?

Looking very much forward to the chapter naming function.

For Titles that don't have any chapter stops to read, can you read length of video and give option of user to choose number of chapters or chapter every ## minutes and then generate the chapter times based on the selection calculated from length of video.

I will consider that should not be hard, i need to look more in mediainfo structure.

Hi
When I run ChapterGen with GUI or cmdline, it asks administrator rights. Is it normal ? Could I remove this step ? Because when I launch ChapterGen in a script, it waits for a choice (Yes or No).
Thanks !

No, that's not normal--I run ChapterGen in cmdline scripts exclusively. You'll need to address the admin rights issue somehow on your setup.
