eac3to Exploiting Seamless Branching
#1
The Aluminum Falcon raised this topic a while back on ot.com.  See his informative thread here.  While he uses tsMuxeR, eac3to is a better tool for the job because it runs a second pass when fixing the gaps that result from seamless branching.
  • The only tool you need is eac3to.
  • I'll use Aliens as an example and add other playlists as and when.
  • Adjust everything to fit your directory structure, e.g., change "X" to whatever; do a "find and replace".  
  • When joining M2TS files like this, make sure you have space on the drive in which eac3to is located as well as the drive in which the BD is located. This is because eac3to makes temporary files on the drive it occupies.
  • If your branching disc has a Dolby TrueHD track, you must decode it instead of extracting it.  DTS-HD MA tracks can be extracted without incident.
  •  So far, this approach works only on standard BDs.  UHD BDs have sync issues.

Close Encounters of the Fourth Tongue Kind (1977)

This uses the 30th Anniversary Edition, not the 40th Anniversary one that followed in 2017.  I should imagine it would work with the first Sony BD too.  Use the DTS-HD MA track.
