Re-author a dvd without going to mpegs?
Right now if I want to add a menu to a DVD that is already complete I have to:
1) rip the vob's
2) use mpegvcr to change vob's to MPEGs
3) Use DVD author to add menus
4) reburn

IS there a way to skip the need to change from VOB to MPEG in this process? I have some disks that I would like to menu but that process is a pain in the ass.

The simplest thing would be to rip/copy the VIDEO_TS folder to the hard drive then load up TMPG DVD Author and import the VIDEO_TS folder, it will then bring up a list of what you want to import

It will import based on the track/chapter structure of the original DVD, then you can just add your own chapters or menu and have it create the new VIDEO_TS folder which you would then burn

That removes the entire step of ripping into VOB's and/or changing to MPGs. Unless you are needing to edit the VOB's you should not need the step of turning them into MPG's to begin with

dvdremakepro would save you even another step as it does not re-author the authored disc. It would let you add or replace whatever menu you desire and output only the modified files. Of course though this app isnt free
