Bugfixes still needed....

Post by neilwilkes »

Is there any chance at all for a fix that will get rid of the annoying "non seamless" flags getting set on contiguous audio streams in an Audio-Only title?
I can fix it in PGCEdit, but a bugfix here would be most welcome.

A second one I just ran across seems that it is not possible to remove audio from a movie stream under certain conditions.
Repro.
Open up a saved project, but with the original M2V file now missing (a new version is needed).
On opening, DLP asks me to locate it, so I do.
Next comes a request to locate the missing audio file, so I say "no" as it was not ready - but then I cannot delete the old audio stream associated with it.
Only way out is to remove the video track, and drop the new audio in place.
Even then it is no longer possible to remove an audio stream from that movie timeline - no matter what, it will not delete.
Not even if I add a second stream can I remove that either.

That's a real shame. I'd happily pay to have these fixed, I must say.
Right now, I can still create the vast majority of my Video_TS Zones for DVD-A with DLP, and don;t get me wrong I am very, very grateful to Oscar for writing in stuff like the non abstraction layer compiling, the slideshows with multiple audio tracks, CPT importation for DTS & the Audio-Only titles that have made this possible for me.
The only other alternative is Scenarist SD - and as a Scenarist owner, I can also say there are areas where it scores heavily but there are other areas where DLP kicks it's arse. Hard.

But the bugs are annoying - especially stuff that just takes time and a large dollop of trial & error to get right - such as correct location of track points (equivalent of CD's PQ codes) because of the terrible drifting in accuracy at 29.97fps, the "only to the second" markers in slideshows, the way I cannot actually edit a track marker in an audio only title, the limitation of 4 VTS - I have occasionally managed 5 VTS but it was hard work getting it to compile. Had to go into task manager & literally shut off all services except wha I needed, and this is hard to accept given we have no way of actually previewing anything. Scenarist manages this, why can't DLP?
It's a case of so near, yet so far away at the same time. Still love the tool though, and still use it regularly. Hell, I could not author some of the titles we have done without it.

But I would still love the bugs squashed, and would pay to have it done.
