    If a dvd is large and requires massive compression, then rather than shrinking it, I usually just burn the movie only in re-author mode to keep it at 100% or near there.

    However, there are some movies where I would like to see the extras. You know, the making of, and the director’s commentary etc.

    Is there a way to burn these extras on a second disk (I am sure that I do it just like if I was gonna split the main movie onto two disks, by dragging just the extras up).

    However, I can’t find a guide walking me through this.

    Also, I am assuming that there is a way to make this “extras” disk in such a manner that I don’t have to watch it all at one 4 hour block. i.e. menus?

    Any help or being pointed to such a guide would be great (I have been looking for a guide, but the only kind that I find talks about splitting a movie ONLY onto two disks).

    I am looking to use only dvd shrink and dvd decrypt if possible.

    I frequently put the movie only on one disk, as you do, using re-author mode of Shrink. I'm not into scene selections, warnings, disclaimers, etc. - just give the movie and my remote chapter + and - buttons and I'm happy...

    I then sometimes burn a second disk, with the extras complete with menus, simply by changing the movie title to a still image (a compression option) before encoding the movie and burning with decrypter. This is not a very eloquent approach, however, it does accomplish the objective of getting all the extras, with menu access, on a second disk without further compression.
