Clown_BD BD Copier

I created a small application to strip out unwanted streams to fit onto a BD-R SL.

Please take a look & let me know what you think.



Download Mirror 1
Download Mirror 2

You need to set the path to Mplayer.exe in the INI file to get previews.

Hi!

Looks quite interesting. A few of questions, if I may:

1) Is menu functionality retained?

2) Does the download include all required support programs (e.g. Mplayer and any others)?

3) Does it provide for reducing HD audiostreams to their core versions (DTS, AC3)?

4) (For the sake of clarity) Am I correct that it does require the BluRay to already be ripped?

1. Yes, assuming you don't uncheck one of the boxes saying 'menu' at the top of the tree

2. The 250kb exe download is just the program. Most users will have their own favourite build of MPlayer. The 5500kb zip download contains the exe and a build of Mplayer. No other software is needed.

3. No, it's a 1:1 copy.

4. Assuming you can decrypt the Blu-Ray on the fly (ie AnyDVD installed or other decryptor), then you can process on the fly.

Forgive my curiosity, but I just have to ask--what is the reason for the name "Clown_BD"? Particularly the "clown" part...

Thanks for this interesting application ...

I've tried to strip several unwanted streams (trailers) from 27GB movie and I'm getting too large size of the output file (just a bit over 50GB). Also, some extras that I want to keep were unchecked by default when I opened the movie???

Few suggestions - It could be nice if you could enable output to a folder on HDD, not just ImgBurn option. Also, the window with the option to uncheck only .m2ts files could be less confusing for someone who is not too familiar with the BD structure (like me for example), as now one has to open every file to see which .m2ts file is under particular .mpls.

CHEERS

@um3k
it was a play on CloneDVD and meant as a joke.

@borivoje
Using Windows explorer for massive files is not really an option. Initally I wanted to build an interface to FastCopy to copy to the hard drive. It didn't work somehow. I'll look into this again.

To your 50gb output from a 27gb file, I'm not really sure what this is, but please download the latest version (v0.10) which I've not announced yet as I wanted to make a few more cosmetic changes (like resizing preview window).

I can possibly add a button to expand/contract the whole tree structure. The idea of building the tree in a non-BDMV way makes no sense.

Sounds like a multi-angle disc (e.g. many Disney BluRays)...

Hi mrr!
I wanted to ask about the srttoxml application.
I tried to import the xml to scenarist but it pops an error "Failed to read Palette"
while other XML files can be imported fine.

I also compared the CLOUN xml and the xml i had working and i couldnt find any differences.

Do you have any ideas?

BTW, great job with the utilities!

Leads to a post at SlySoft forum that refers to "download the attached..." - but there is no attachment visible...

Can you provide an updated link at your homepage (It presently makes v.0.9 available for download, but not v.0.11)

 To use Windows Copy feature
  
   [Options]
   CreateBAT=Y
   CopyProgram=copy
   CopyProgramDelimiter=
   CopyProgramArgs=
   
 To use FastCopy http://ipmsg.org/tools/fastcopy.html.en
 
   [Options]
   CreateBAT=Y
   CopyProgram="C:\Program Files\Fast Copy\FastCopy.exe" /auto_close
   CopyProgramDelimiter=/to=
   CopyProgramArgs=

 To use TeraCopy http://www.codesector.com/teracopy.php
 
   [Options]
   CreateBAT=Y
   CopyProgram="C:\Program Files\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe" 
   CopyProgramDelimiter=
   CopyProgramArgs=/close
I deleted the attachment when I uploaded the EXE. Download link on webpage is correct, text in version number is wrong. I'll change it now. Thanks for reminding me.

I guess a premium product like Sonic has great help. I've no idea what's wrong, perhaps a mail to them with the XML might indicate what's wrong?

Probably not, Sonic wouldn't offer much help with files that aren't created with their software...

The Palettes are stored in the PNG files themselves, not the XML. It probably has to do with the way the PNGs are saved. They have to be saved in indexed color, 8-bit mode (with a 256 color palette). If they are 16 or 32-bit PNGs, Scenarist won't be able to import them. (Drop one in Photoshop and see if you can open the Color Table... That'll tell you right away.)

Also, the very first color in the palette needs to be the 100% transparent 'color'. The color used for the background of the image that you want to be able to see the video through. Scenarist will make this first palette entry the transparent color, so if that's really a color somewhere in your text, it will have transparent spots...

If you convert them to indexed 8-bit, they should at least import. The first-color thing might be a problem (Scenarist will give you a warning if that condition is not true, but it will still try to use them).

You can extract the correct xml palettes with BDEdit or with DVDLogic BD Demuxer ( for what you want I think DVDLogic BD Demuxer should do the trick ). I described here how to save them for reuse with scenarist or with bdedit. The problem comes when you have a transparent image, you have to jump through a few hoops to preserve that transparency.

New version. Small changelog, big changes

Code:
v0.19 (2010-06-23)
. Include Orphan CLPI/M2TS That Do Not Belong To A Playlist
. Remove Debug Tooltip
. Include Seamless Branching tsMuxeR Usage
Basically the tsMuxeR mode will now remux every MPLS in the movie (especially relevant for seamless branching). This also includes a new tool Clown_BD MPLS Builder, which will go along and create a new MPLS file (based on the original one) adjusted for the new timecodes & STN table changes relevant for 'blanked' primary audio streams.
