As MPEG sequences can have the same interactivity as MPEG stills, I don't see why we can't have DVD style menus in VCDs. Couldn't we somehow rip the menu animations and music from a DVD and encode them into a standard MPEG format? This could loop over and over until someone selects something. The Next and Previous buttons would (in my opinion) be a good enough substitute for the Up/Down/Left/Right buttons, pressing "Next" on menu screen 1 takes you to menu screen 2, which is exactly the same, except that pressing Enter on this screen would take you the choice that is currently highlighted in some way, complicated menu structures could be built in this way, that look exactly like the original DVD. Problem is, ripping menu animations too would leave a bit less space for the movie, and of course it would be a lot of work. But is there any way to rip menu animations? Has anyone tried anything similar to this?

Or get MovieXone for even simpler authoring
http://www.aistinc.com/products/moviexone.asp
Version 1.0 is free!. I got it on a CD with a book I purchased on video editing and stuff.
If you can't download it from their site, check download.com or search google.

Wow, thanks for the links, people.

But I can't seem to find anywhere a way to actually rip menus...am I missing something?

In the article at

http://home.att.net/~adam.poole/Introduction.htm

Step 1 :
talks about selecting the main movie files
and makes note that the VOB preceeding the main movie is the menu VOB

EX:
VTS_01_0.VOB in his example is the menu's VOB
and VTS_01_1 - x are the movie VOB's

Hope that helps

I finally managed to rip the menus with SmartRipper (thanks for link, phibertron), it seems DVD Decryptor doesn't let you select files to rip individually...Thanks for all the help!

You have to use "File mode" in DVDDecrypter. Then you select what you want . You probably had it set to "IFO mode"

Hi!

VCDEasy is definitely what you need to create DVD-like VCDs!
You may also need Slide Show Movie Maker to make still images with sound if you want : http://www.joern-thiemann.de/tools/index.html.

I had a lot of fun creating VCD with interactive menu, in order to tease my pro-divx friends My best work features animated menus (with sound!), chapter selection, main movie, extra scenes & actors bio (Cube). Credits goes to Kwag for his template of course...

I have stopped doing this because it really takes too much time.

Is anyone ready to develop a prog that would automate everything : just insert DVD and press "Rip Menus and bonus"?

Gosh!

Problem with this forum is that you cannot get away too long from the internet!!

Sorry for not answering, jorel.. The 2 guides from urban tec looks really nice, couldn't do better. Guess you already started playing around with it

By the way, I have just managed to put Episode II with all bonus on 1 CD!! (naa, just kidding guys...)

Cheers!

This would be exactly what we need! I hope someday we are there, that you just have to insert the DVD, and EVERYTHING will be done automatically.
And If you get up the next morning, your movie is already burnt on CD! (of course with all the menus)

( Hope they read this post )
