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.
General processing -C | --config-file filename filename of dvdwizard-configuration file [~/.dvdwizard/dvdwizard.conf] -o | --output directory Path where the final DVD will be stored [BASEDIR/dvd] -x | --xml filename Print dvdauthor XML-specs into this file [BASEDIR/dvdwizard.xml] -l | --logfile filename Write Log-Messages to this file [BASEDIR/dvdwizard.log] -y | --yes Allow all target directories to be overwritten -D | --debug Logging with console debug infos -h | --help print this lot out -v | --version print version and exit --restart step Do not start from beginning but from step. Step may be dvdcpics, mk_vmgm, mk_vtsm, author. --xmlonly Do not author final DVD, only create menus and xml and remove temp. DVD structure. --xmlkeep Like --xmlonly, but keep temporary DVD structure. DVD-specific options -T | --vmgm string Titlestring for the whole DVD; if not specified no title will be printed on the main menu. -N | --tvnorm <norm> TV-Norm to use. Norm may be PAL or NTSC. [PAL] -V | --tvsize WidexHeight Visible Area on TV-Screen. [660x530] -M | --menu language Define language to use in menu items [en]. Strings are defined in config file. -WS <option> Widescreen-Option for whole DVD may be nopanscan or noletterbox. Can be overwritten by -ws for a specific titleset. -P | --palette filename Name of palette file, needed i.e. for subpictures. -A | --Audio lang[,lang2,...] Language for audiotracks [en]. Languages are applied to audiotracks in order they appear in the mpeg stream. Applies to all titlesets on the DVD, can be overwritten by -a for a specific titleset. -I | --intro filename MPEG-File to be played when inserting the DVD in the player. -L | --loop value Playback mode of the DVD. Possible values are: 0 return to vmgm menu after each title, -1 display vmgm menu before the first and after the last title, -2 display vmgm menu only before first title and loop all titles endlessly, num num is a value between 1 and 9. Suppress vmgm menu and loop all titles endlessly, starting from specified title. -MS | --vmgmsound filename Soundfile to be used as background sound for all menus (may be overwritten for specific titlesets with -ms|--vtsmsound). If empty, a silent audio track will be produced. Can be any format, ffmpeg recognizes and will be converted to ac3, if necessary. -W | --pause number Wait a number of seconds as pause at the end of each titleset. Title-specific options -t | --vts string Create a new titleset on the DVD with the subsequent options and mpeg-files. -t must be followed by a filename or a string or the word "auto". "auto" determines title-string from filename of first mpeg-file, if -t is followed by an existing filename, that file is considered to be the first mpeg in this titleset, else the string is used as movie title for this titleset. -c | --chapters <spec> Chapter-Specification may be 0|file|timecodes|interval.  0 means no chaptering except for different mpeg-files. -b | --vtsmbg filename Filename of background picture for all menus concerning this titleset. -ar | --aspect <aspectratio> Aspect-Ratio-Option aspectratio for correcting detected value of video stream. May be 4:3 or 16:9. -ws <option> Widescreen-Option may be nopanscan or noletterbox for this titleset. -a | --audio lang[,lang2,...] Language for audiotrack of this titleset. [en] -s | --subpic lang1[,lang2,...] Pass subpicture information to dvdauthor.This is a string like "en" for english, "de" for german etc. More Languages by Comma Separation, i.e. "-s de,en". Each language may be followed by an optional "+hi" to indicate a subpicture track for hearing impaired, i.e. "-s de,de+hi". -i | --info filename Points to a text file containing description and the like for the movie. -ms | --vtsmsound filename see -MS, but only applies to this titleset.
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). For more information, sources and executables of DVDwizard see at the homepage http://sf.net/projects/dvdwizard.
