PgcEdit 0.6.0

PgcEdit 0.6.0 is out. As usual, it is available on my homepage.

Main new function: Double Layer burn.
If you are interested in the genesis of the DL burn function, see this thread.
  • A. Burn DVD / Create ISO support for Double Layer DVD+R and DL DVD-R:
    - The method allow the user to select the layer break in a wide range of cells (actually twice as wide as the 'standard' method)!
    - Added a GUI to specify the Layer Break cell.
    - Added menu "Options -> Burn / Create ISO setup" menu to call the Burn Setup dialog directly from the main window.
    - The Burn Setup window has been modified to include, among other things, the capacity of a single layer DVD and of a double layer DVD.
    - New starter app for MacOSX (v0.5a), by Pucklock, including mkisofs 2.01 (needed for the Create ISO function.) Thanks to Pucklock! Note that this new starter app starts the X11 version automatically instead of the Aqua version.
  • R. Removed the original link to DVD Decrypter's homepage in the Burn Setup dialog because this page is discontinued, and may be monitored by "a major DVD company". Replaced by a direct download link at VideoHelp.
  • A. Utilities -> Remap Title Numbers function to renumber the Titles. The references to the Title numbers in the VMG are automatically updated.
  • A. Utilities -> Delete last VTS in DVD function. Use this function only when the last titleset is not referenced!
  • A. Info -> Find Jumps To Nowhere function showing commands and PrevPGCN, NextPGCN or GoUpPGCN links jumping to non existing PGCs or Titles.
  • A. Calls Cross References: Added listing of jumps to nowhere references.
  • A. Added an option to display the PGC labels as text in the context menu of an empty line of the PGC selector.
  • A. Added shortcut Control+P to launch the PGC Preview.
  • A. Added the first step to implement plugins for PgcEdit in the future.
  • A. Added an option to change the default listbox background color to white when running PgcEdit under X11. (Linux, and MacOSX with Tk-X11 only)
  • E. After 'Clone PGC' or 'New Play All Title', the number of buttons of the new PGC is now displayed in the PGC Selector.
  • E. Menu Editor: Changed the menu labels Buttons -> Align vertically and Align horizontally to Align on same column and Align on same row.
  • E. Now, there is no need to select your Web Browser the first time an HTML page is opened under Mac OSX: the 'open' command is used instead.
  • E. Under Linux and Mac OSX, the config files are now saved in "~/.PgcEdit/".
    Under all platforms, the leading dot has been removed from the filenames.
  • F. Burn DVD: The calculation of the size of DVD-ROM files crashed when an empty DVD-ROM directory was present in the compilation.
  • F. Fixed some bugs in the Find All function: the line number (when the target was a pre, post or cell command) and the cell number (when the target was a button or BOV) were off by 1, and the button group was not always correctly displayed. The GUI has been changed also to avoid the Tcl/Tk limitaiton of the number of occurences that can be displayed in a canvas.
  • F. Jump to PGC Upon DVD Insert macro: when several LUs were present and the user selected the option to process all LUs, there was a bug in the reconstruction of the commands of the modified PGCs in LU 2 and following.
  • F. PGC Editor: The color table was not saved after an Import Colors from an IFO file.
  • F. An error occured when trying to hi-lite the target of a Jump command when the target VTS was not present.
  • F. It was sometimes impossible to close the "Go to calling command" window.
  • F. PgcEdit Preview Version 2.0, by jeanl. Fixes 3 bugs. See history below.

Also new on my homepage:
  • New MacOSX starter app v0.5a, including mkisofs v2.1 (needed for the new Create ISO function)
  • New guide by blutach: How to burn Double Layer Disks with PgcEdit. (discussion thread)
  • Updated version of Tobi's PgcEdit Anleitung.PDF and Beispiele.PDF, updated for PgcEdit 0.6.0, including a guide on how to burn Double Layer DVDs.
  • Alternate set of toolbar icons, by Sweetness.
  • And much more...

Great work, the new DL burn feature is great. Having failed miserably to burn DL content with Nero, PgcEdit has saved the day. DL burns working great now.

Thar's what I've heard. But is it realy the truth? To be honest, nobody knows, except LUK!... and the company!
Anyway, I'm glad to support DVDD as a perfectly legal burning app! Long life to DVDD! And Thanks also to Lightning UK! with which I must share the success of the DL Burning function.

BTW, Doom9 claims to have the official word (12 June 2005).

OT - Thoughts go out to LUK and countrymen, in light of todays events.

Just downloaded it without problems. Do you use download-accelerators, maybe you should try it with right-click "save as"?

@r0lZ
I'm wondering why I was asked to install turkish charactersets to have a look at the .chm?
By the way, great work!

Nope I wasn't using a download-accelerator or manager (just IE's downloader). I downloaded it atleast 6 times using the right-click "save as" technic. Never had trouble before downloading the previous help file. I even closed my firewall and tried (just started using Sygate firewall 2 days ago). Below is what I'm getting.



Every content I click on is the same. I downloaded PGCEdit 0.6.0 fine.

Both the non-working onces downloaded with IE's built in downloader and the working one downloaded with NetTransport are 744,504. It's weird. I can download it fine using Firefox and it downloads fine in IE and Maxthon using NetTransport but doen't work using "save as" in IE or Maxthon. Anyway, I've got a working file now so no biggy.

r0lZ, thanks for the new version! It looks to me like PgcEdit suddently made a giant step ahead of all other DVD editing softs (free or not free), with the very refined DL burning feature! I don't have a DL burner yet, but I can't wait to get one and try it! I ran a "mock" DL burn just to see what it would look like, and as usual, I'm impressed by how detailed and well thought-out the implementation is.
Kudos man!

I've found the problem. It's a bug in M$ Windows! With XP SP2, when you download a file, it is locked by Windows to prevent infections by viruses. When you launch the file, a warning is displayed. If you accept the warning, the file is opened... but all pages are blank (actually, with a link not found error message)!
To get rid of this problem, you have to unlock the file: go to properties, and click the Unlock button.

To solve this problem, I will upload a zipped version instead.


@jeanl: Thanks!

Tiscali mirror not available

Note: At this time, the Tiscali mirror in Belgium is not available. This is probably due to the fact that the Tiscali network is currently absorbed by Scarlet.
To download PgcEdit, please use the main homepage at VideoHelp, or the unofficial mirror in Poland.

I take advantage of this message to signal that www.lcsinchome.com distributes a modified version of PgcEdit, wrapped in an installer. Actually, the installer don't work to install PgcEdit, but it will install a virus!
Don't download anything from Lcsinchome.Com, and banish it from your bookmarks!
