Trying to avoid a slight delay when editing video on a DVD Recorder?

    Sorry if the subject is not clear...I'll explain
    When I remove bits of video using my DVD Recorder I get a slight
    freeze frame at the place I've removed a section of video.
    I loaded a video I had edited on a DVD recorder into my computer and
    noticed that instead of one title I had many titles, each chapter was
    a title. The DVD recorder must write some instruction to tell the DVD
    player what next title to play, as the DVD player locates the next
    title there is a short delay where the picture is still.
    I was thinking of joining all ther titles up on the computer so there
    would not be any delays in still frames.

    My question is that is there any way of joining up a mpeg2 video
    without having to render the video again as I'd like to avoid losing
    quality.

    Regards Brian

    If you are bringing it over to your PC anyway, why not do your
    editing and reauthor on the PC? Just use a RW disk in your DVD
    Recorder and you can use an DVD+/-R disk in your PC, for more
    permanent storage.


    TMPGEnc DVD Author (TDA) can use the "DVD" as input to
    a project. VideoReDo can do frame accurate cuts from the .mpg
    that TDA will make when it extracts the MPEG data to a folder
    to become input data. Then just author a new DVD using the
    output folder of VideoReDo as the source for adding files in TDA.

    Luck;
