    Make certain the input and output directories are the same, and that NOTHING has been changed since the .key file was written. The .key, cut, and .ty must all have the same name, don't save the .cut...
  2. Sticky: Try muxing the whole tystream to vob without...

    Try muxing the whole tystream to vob without edits and do NOT fill audio holes (Reencoding audio is an option that's sometimes necessary); then cut the vob to show length with Womble Mpeg-VCR. That...
  3. Sticky: "correcting" GOP lengths in Womble (and I guess...

    "correcting" GOP lengths in Womble (and I guess VideoRedo) is not a full reencode, after all it only takes a few minutes, but it uses matrix changes, as is done in DVDshrink, to turn a P-frame into...

    Typically TCM runs streams at between 1400 and 2100 Kbps. That means that frequently I can get four or five complete movies on one DVD-r, at original (compromised as it is) quality.
  5. Sticky: No, the DVD standard calls for a maximum of 30...

    No, the DVD standard calls for a maximum of 30 frames GOP. DVD players therefore look for extra data formed within a header that describes up to 30 frames in a block. The counter only goes to thirty...

    The Key and .cut save the full path. Josh has said that he just can't get the editing to work right after removing the necessity for a /Path statement.

    I am severely deaf, I have a $4000 hearing aid in one ear and no recoverable hearing in the other, so I have most certainly dealt in detail with TyTool's CC methods.

    Most of the films I collect,...

    No.


    No. Maybe Hi-def rendered to DivX for computer playback, yes.


    DVDlab is reporting Open GOPs. It may also report SD 480X480 as "Non-DVD Standard" but that can be ignored.
    There are...

    You started with a description of your problems, only after extensive back-and-forth did we learn you were renaming the .cut files. Then you finally told us the problem was audio or no audio and...

    It's a waste of effort making a seperate directory for each show since EACH time you have to change the settings for input and output folders in TyTool, a real hassle and one that can lead to...
  11. Sticky: To add to that, Jetstream, consider that in the...

    To add to that, Jetstream, consider that in the directory you may have many tystreams and .cut and .key files, how would TyTool know which goes with which UNLESS the filenames are identical?! ...
  12. Sticky: That's an anomaly that hasn't been discussed. ...

    That's an anomaly that hasn't been discussed. Tytools WILL vob-mux or create an mpeg without any .cut file, it just doesn't do any cutting. Only a .key and the tystream are needed for the vob-mux...
  13. Sticky: Make sure your working (input) directories and...

    Make sure your working (input) directories and output directories are the same. The .cut must be in the same directory as the .key and .ty. I think if a different output directory is used it looks...
  14. Sticky: More complication

    I sometimes have to mix Dtivo-sourced files with laserdisc caps and DVDrips in the same 24fps project. To make the 720X480 IVTC'd AVIs (from Dtivo)that are subsequently used in Premiere or Liquid I...

    There is zero, zilch, no loss whatsoever when editing in Tytool. The result is still the same mpeg stream that was on the tivo. However Vegas would not be happy with the long GOPs and header...

    "Wrong FPS" means just that, the wrong speed. It's probably set to a PAL project which is 25FPS whereas NTSC (Dtivo files) is 29.976. You do NOT have to reencode, ever.

    Making Data DVDs not Video DVDs?

    Erm, nowhere there does it say you're actually authoring a DVD. Naming a folder "Video_TS," dragging vobs into it, then burning as a data disc does NOT create a proper DVD. Are you even making vobs...

    summing up

    It's best to reset the timecode for each vob or mpeg to be used in the project before working with them. You can do that under "Tools" in DVDlab.

    Another thing is that there is a consistent 16 -...

    The only way to make 480X480 work in Tmpeg is to restream or in some way change the pixel size headers. But you still end up with a buggy menu on a DVD that will play in less than half of hardware...

    This has been discussed before. TyTool in no way changes the "quality" of the file, it can't since there is no reencoding, it's the same mpeg2 that was on the tivo to begin with, the tivo headers...

  24. Sticky: To Josh, re: dvd writing

    A stupid question, the DVDr problems didn't start after switching to Nero 7.0.0.0...? The early builds of nero 7 are notoriously buggy, it simply doesn't work. I'm sticking to 6.6.0.16 (not even the...

    Yes, but it splits only, so that the result is a collection of individual bits of everything, the wanted films as well as the unwanted promos, and you can't join anything within the splits. Also it...

    This is what I also do, but two things,
    (1)TyTool DOES rename the resulting Vob or Mpeg adding a "_1" or "_2" etc before the .mpg, so there's no danger of overwriting. You can save the renaming...

    I think Josh meant the TyTool CC code is for the initial stripping of the Tystream to vobs/mpeg, a different reader is used when remuxing from mpeg to mpeg, and the latter doesn't in any way...
