Conserving DVD Menus



Hi to all.


Here is the thing. I have a movie that is a dvd-dl and when i try to select the things that i want so the movie can fit in a single layer dvd, Toast always removes the menu and i like menus!. Instead of losing the menu, is there a way to de-select some of the extras and some audio channels without losing the menu so it can fit into a single layer?.


Greetings to all and thanks for the support.


Zero :lol:


PS: it would be great that Toast lets you choose more freely the thing, like the menu or just part of them instead of taking all away and for each stream a custom compression...

A reason why Toast doesn't let you remove something from a DVD and still keep the menu is that some part of the menu will still point to what is removed. Selecting the missing content in the menu will likely freeze the DVD player.


So it is either all or nothing with the source DVD's menu.


However, you could do things differently and have Toast create a new menu for you. If you use the Toast Media Browser to extract the specific titles you want from the DVD (choose DVD video as the format in the Video window). If your source is in a VIDEO_TS folder on the hard drive place it on the desktop or in the Movies folder so the Media Browser will find it when DVD is selected with the browser's top button.


After extracting video via the media browser to the video window you can select each title and choose the audio track you want by clicking the Edit button.


Then choose one of Toast's menu styles. If there is too much video to fit a single-layer disc choose Save as Disc Image. When that is finished you can use the Fit-to-DVD feature using the Image File setting in the Copy window to burn your single-layer DVD.
