mk_vmgm --- automated creation of titleset menus of the DVD (VTSM)
mk_vtsm [options] image-file(s)
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.
One of these sub-scripts is mk_vtsm, which create one or more titleset menus (VTSM) for authoring a DVD with dvdauthor.
