Force re-encoding of DVD menu?

Hi All

I have enabled encoding of Menu.... But it only shows up in the editor sometimes?

Is there some kind of limit? Menu = 200MB etc... before you are able to use the slider for the Menu encoding?

I really would like to take a 100MB menu and re-encode it to 50MB

IIRC DVD-RB only encodes menus that are bigger than 50MB per default (can be changed via ini).
...today I like all colours, like Frans Zimmer.

I believe if you add both of these, then DVD-RB will encode all video regardless of filesize as it sets the minimum filesize to zero


The first is to encode all VTS regardless of filesize, the second is to encode all menus again regardless of filesize. I have this set and don't really notice any slow down, but on a source that has a lot of very small VTS's (like an interactive DVD) then you may notice it

You will have to add these yourself into the REBUILDER.INI file in the installation folder as they are 'hidden' settings that are not available via the main interface. Just copy and paste below the [Options] line and you will be okay

At defaults it only encodes video bigger than 50MB (I think its that size), on the understanding that the difference in size wasn't worth the extra time it would take to try and encode something that small and have it only encode to a slightly smaller size
