DVD Chapters to Cuesheet Indexes
I have just received my Ben Folds DVD.

Each track starts a new chapter.

I was wondering whether there is any easy way to get chapter markers to convert into a cuesheet?

I have created my cuesheet now, but I'm sure there must be an easier way.

I achieved it by doing the following: I used IfoEdit's "Save Celltimes to file" option to export the chapter frame times to a text file.  I then used Excel to convert these frame times into MM:SS:FF format.  Finally I used these index times to create a new cuesheet.  NB: I demuxed the audio tracks using DGIndex.

Surely something could do this automatically, from the IFO file?

If not I may write a small app to parse IfoEdit's Celltime.txt files...

All input welcome.

There is a tool which is able to do that : Chapter-X-Tractor. Grab it from download ressources. But you need to write header, footer and duration syntax in CUE format.

Another way, Chap2cue.

Using ChapterXTractor to output to OGG format and then using Chap2Cue did work.

I tried creating a ChapterXTractor preset, but you can't appear to get 1/75 frame values.  The closest I got was:

Code: [Select]
Preset 7=Cuesheet
Format 7=%sp TRACK %C AUDIO\n    INDEX 01 %mm:%ss:%ff\n
Header 7=FILE "%file" WAVE\n
Footer 7=

... but %ff isn't 1/75, but something else.

ChapterXTractor + Chap2Cue is fine though.

Thanks for your help.

I am very glad somebody has walked this path and prepared everything.Thank you.
My path was:
1) ChapterXTractor -> Ogg chapter file
2) Chap2Cue -> Cue sheet
3) DGIndex ->  48 khz wav
4) CueListTool -> 48 khz wav with cues
5) Cooledit -> 44 khz wav
6) Nero -> audio CD

I am necromancing a four-and-a-half-year old thread here, so ... what is the recommended software as per 2011?

I have my DVDs on hard drive as .ISO, and would like to demux out the audio to a lossless format.
