       DVDwizard — automated creation of DVD structure


       dvdwizard [options] mpeg-file [mpeg-file2 ...]


       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.

       Every  new  -t  creates  a new titleset on the DVD. Subsequent options -c, -b, -a, -ar and
       mpeg-file(s) apply only to that titleset. To create a DVD with two titlesets and a special
       background, use for example:

              dvdwizard -t auto -c 30 title1.mpg \
                        -t auto -b bckgrnd.ppm title2.mpg


       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).
