Sefy's Complete DVD Backup Guide v2.6
Using - VCDEasy

This program that is capable of doing chapters in a rather easy and simple way, and uses all the free tools out there for giving you the best of the best, it's chaptering capabilities are very simple but effective and you can also do Menus similiar to your DVD. In the last few builds it has added support for the free CDRDao burning tool, and gives you an easy interface for burning the images it created.

Step 1a - Open VCDEasy, and set everything according to your specific movie, and follow the example below. Make sure you select the standard in which your movie has been encoded, to either "PAL" or "NTSC" so the Chapters will be at the right spots.
(* NOTE: Please do not create blank spaces in the Cue/Bin name, as CDRDao may have a problem burning it later on.*)

Step 1b - Press the "Add Files" button and select the first of the two files you encoded earlier.

Step 1c - Change the "Volume Label" to reflect the name of the Movie, and also select the "CD files" location by using "Browse"

Step 2 - On the "Options" tab you can write down the name of the "Album" and also enable the "Use Playback Control (PBC)". it is also possible for you to enable the "CD-i Support" if you want to play the created movie on a Philips CD-i Player. It is not a required function, and can save space if you don't need it.

Step 3a - Press the "Chapters" menu item and Here you can select to import the Chapters for your movie, Right Click to get the popup menu so you can import from Smart Ripper or Chapter-X-Tractor.

NOTE: Write down the "Duration" time of the first half of your movie, you will need it as a "Start Offset" for the second part. If your movie is only a single file, then ignore this.

Step 3b - Select the "End offset " for the first part of the movie, and press the ">>" button, this will add all the chapters to the "After" table and then press the "Ok" button when you are done.

Menus: Click here If you would like to create menus for your Movie!

Step 4 - Press the "Go" button, VCDEasy will begin analysing your MPG file and create an Image file for burning.

Step 5a - Go back to "Main" by pressing the "(S)VCD " button, remove the MPG file, and open the second part of the movie.

Step 5b - Change the name of the "CD files" by using the "Browse", so you don't accidently overwrite the previous file.

Step 5c - As in Step 3a and 3b, write in the "Start offset" the exact lenth of the previous part, in this example it's "1:15:11.139" and just mark the "End offset" as the end of the movie, and press the ">>" button, this will add all the chapters for the second part of the movie in the correct Chapter Times on the "After" table.

Step 6 - Press the "Go" button again to create the second image file of the movie.

Final Step - Burning!
