mk_vmgm --- automated creation of titleset menus of the DVD (VTSM)


mk_vtsm [options] image-file(s)


DVDwizard is a wrapper-script which incorporates a fully automated creation of a DVD-structure with chapters and menus from one or more mpeg-streams. This is done by several "sub-scripts" and various freely available tools.

One of these sub-scripts is mk_vtsm, which create one or more titleset menus (VTSM) for authoring a DVD with dvdauthor.


General processing

-C | --config-file filename
filename of dvdwizard-configuration file [~/.dvdwizard/dvdwizard.conf]
-o | --output directory
Path where the created menu mpegs will be stored [BASEDIR/vtsm]
-x | --xml filename
Print dvdauthor XML-specs into this file [BASEDIR/dvdwizard.xml]
-h | --help
print this lot out

DVD-specific options

-N | --tvnorm <norm>
TV-Norm to use. Norm may be PAL or NTSC. [PAL]
-V | --tvsize WidexHeight
Visible Area on TV-Screen. [660x530]
-R | --menuratio aspectratio
Menue background aspect ratio. Aspectratio may be 4:3 or 16:9. [4:3]
-M | --menu language
Define language to use in menu items [en]. Strings are defined in config file.

Title-specific options

-t | --vts number

-c | --chaptersperrow number
Define how many chapter thumbnails will fit in a row. [3]
-b | --vtsmbg filename

-r | --bgratio <aspectratio>
Define aspect ratio of menu background and thumbnails. Aspectratio may be 4:3 or 16:9. [4:3]
-ms | --vtsmsound filename
Soundfile to be used as background sound for the menu. If empty, a silent audio track will be produced. Can be any format, ffmpeg recognizes and will be converted to ac3, if necessary.
Title has multiple audio tracks. A button to jump to the audio selection menu will be created.
Title has at least one Subtitle-Stream which may be activated in a subsequent subtitle-menu.
Title has EPG-information available. A button to jump to the info panel will be created.


BASEDIR defaults to the current directory if not stated otherwise in the config file (either default ~/.dvdwizard/dvdwizard.conf or specified with the -C option).

Every new -t marks a new titleset on the DVD. Subsequent options -b, -r, -ms, --hasaudio, --hassubtitle and --hasinfo apply only to that titleset.

Divine surprise : le film revient 3 jours après, non coupé, et sans la
moindre rayure ni gras de saucisson. L'unique fois où j'avais fait du
chromogène, il était tellement rayé que j'aurai pu le jouer sur une
platine vinyl.
