       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  ~/.config/dvdwizard/dvdwizard.conf  or
       specified with the -C option).
