Why didn't you use Didée's method (he's a genius), but with the new AvisynthPlus with 64-bit plugins?
VirtualDub is a very old tool.
I hope that you used a newer codec, like H264/H265 (x264 seems better for encoding to lossless video).

Also, you seem to care a lot about video-quality, you even set the encode to lossless, so you should rather get the Blu-ray version of this movie.

EDIT: Oh, I see that there's a new version out now, VirtualDub2.

If anyone is still interested, this is my script from ~2 years ago.

v1 = DGSource("LOTR1P1.dgi")
v2 = DGSource("LOTR1P2.dgi")

a1 = NicDTSSource("p1.dtsma")
a2 = NicDTSSource("p2.dtsma")

p1 = AudioDub(v1, a1).trim(0, 151968, true)
p2 = AudioDub(v2, a2).trim(48, 0, true)


Crop(0, 140, -0, -140)
Batch script for audio:
ffmpeg -i "%~nx1" -c:a flac "%~n1.trimmed.flac"
eac3to "%~n1.trimmed.flac" "%~n1.ac3"
del "%~n1.trimmed.flac"

Is this one of those instances where the last chapter in the program chain is half a second long and 8 kb in size? I've seen a LOT of those, and if that's what is happening here, cutting off the dead chapter when ripping (Smartripper and DVDfab let you do that) would seem to be a good solution.
I ask unusual questions but always give proper thanks to those who give correct and useful answers.

All of this is part of authoring 'tricks'. What is bit strange is lack of audio for that short bit. Typically you add silence and keep audio config the same as for the main video (if you need seamless link you have no other choice).
No one cares about ripping problems when doing DVD authoring
You provide requested functionality and care about 100% compliancy.
