Can you clarify what you mean by moving multiple titles to a new location?  Are you referring to the location/slot information?

Based on your screenshot it appears those files are missing.  What I did notice was the filenames for some of your DVD Profiler files are appended with " [conflicted]".  Any idea what is causing that as it's probably the root of this issue.

The file type for some of those files is also listed as "NCH.VideoPad.dat".  I'm assuming you're using NCH's VideoPad software and I'd look to see if the VideoPad software is causing conflicts with DVD Profiler.  Did you install that software recently?

When Season 6 was first released on DVD (not blu-ray), did the season ship with a slipcover?


It did not, the last season was a MOD release and WAC doesn't do slipcovers for MOD releases to my knowledge.

We have several versions of the same company/studio again and again, and if I check for an update of the profile and there IS one, it's nearly sure that the studios remains. So just as explanation for what I mean:

Göttinger-Film-Atelier GmbH / Filmatelier Göttingen
Rialto Film / Rialto Film Preben Philipsen
LISA Film / Lisa Film GmbH / Lisa-Film / Lisa-Film GmbH / Lisa-Film München
Lions Gate / Lionsgate (in several versions)

The first two are kind of the same company, only changed their name and/or the kind of the company. All those Lisas are all the same, only in different spellings. Like Lisa, we have some more with or without a dash.

So first of all: Is there anywhere on the site a list of studios? I did some research but couldn't find what I am looking for: A list which shows for example:
LISA Film (correct) -> All other spellings are wrong


The answer is it depends.  The studio or media company name is the name used for that time period in question and/or the specific release.  Using one of your examples, Lionsgate used to be know as "Lions Gate", but changed their name to Lionsgate.  So, in short, both are correct depending on the time period in question.

It sounds like someone already submitted an initial contribution for that title.  An initial contribution doesn't show up under the pending updates section.  However, once approved and follow-on contributions will be viewable.

Yep, more and more new releases are not getting added to the database and it seems that it is directly proportional to the number of active users.

A "single release" would mean a single film vs. a box set, IMO.  So, this is not a bonus feature film per definition and it should have its own profile in the box set.
---------------


I don't think that disqualifies it as a bonus feature since the contribution guidelines tell us to create a separate child profile anyway for a "bonus feature film".

Quote:
Create a child profile for the "Bonus Feature Film" using its individual UPC if available or use Disc ID (read on a DVD-ROM) if not available. If the Disc ID is already in use, create an alternate version Disc ID. When creating a child profile, do not remove the "Bonus Feature Film" Disc ID from the main profile. When profiling the "Bonus Feature Film", only profile the data associated with that film.

though I would say I haven't seen "Bonus Feature Films" in other features in the other profiles I have so I personally would just do the child profile.


I have, I can't speak to DVDs lately, but I've seen them included in the other features section with Blu-rays.

Why?


Because EB considers it a bonus movie and clearly states that on the packaging.

So, if the cover treats it as a bonus feature, but the disc clearly does not - is it in fact a bonus feature?


Yes.

So it doesn't get a mention in the title, but it does get mentioned in Other Features? I can live with that.


I would say so.

Quoting GSyren:
Quote:
The strange thing is that on the disc itself, all 4 titles are equally mentioned, and nothing says that WotW 2 is a bonus film, and the same thing goes for the main menu. So why Echo Bridge decided to relegate WotW 2 to bonus film stature on the packaging remains a mystery.


Are the film elements for WotW 2 of lower quality than the other three films?  I'd have to guess that EB didn't put any effort into that film where as they may have with the other three.  Otherwise, it may just be a marketing gimmick.

In reviewing the contribution guidelines this is what it mentions:

Quote:
Create the profile for the main feature in line with the standard Contribution Rules with the title of the Bonus Feature Film added to the Other Features field. Create a child profile for the "Bonus Feature Film" using its individual UPC if available or use Disc ID (read on a DVD-ROM) if not available. If the Disc ID is already in use, create an alternate version Disc ID. When creating a child profile, do not remove the "Bonus Feature Film" Disc ID from the main profile. When profiling the "Bonus Feature Film", only profile the data associated with that film. Any features associated with the Main Feature belong to the Main Feature profile. Add the additional profile to the Main Profile as a child profile via the Box Set button. Cover Images: Use the cover image from the Main Feature profile's packaging. Exception: If the "Bonus Feature Film" is individually packaged, use the cover images from that packaging.


Thus, I would say it's both.

The theatrical release studio isn't always listed (nor always remains) in the film's credits especially when a specific film changes media distributors.  For example, Angel Eyes is a Morgan Creek production and was released theatrically in the US by Warner Bros. Pictures.  For a long time, WB released Morgan Creek films on home entertainment media.  Over the past couple of years, Morgan Creek ended this relationship and now Sony Pictures distributes Morgan Creek films on home media.  With the recent Blu-ray release of Angel Eyes, Sony has removed all references to WB from the credits.

A similar thing can be said for the Star Wars trilogy with Disney removing the Fox logos.  Obviously, 20th Century Fox released Star Wars: A New Hope theatrically and not Disney.

I've read the entire thread that you linked. What I'm not understanding is what do you mean by having AnyDVD "enabled"? Can you (or someone) please explain further, perhaps step-by-step?


Do you have the AnyDVD software?  If so, from the Windows taskbar right-click on the AnyDVD icon and make sure "Enable AnyDVD" is checked.  Also, if AnyDVD is enabled the icon will have color otherwise if it's disabled the icon will be gray.

I've always used the theatrical release studio for the given locality.  I had thought there was some guidance on this in the guidelines, but it seems that isn't the case.

Just like the distributor can, and often is, different for releases in different localities, so is the theatrical release studio.  What doesn't change across localities though is the production studios.

Usually, you can find that information in the film's end credits, on the theatrical posters, or even via a source such as filmratings.com.

An updated CDROM.sys driver in Win10 is causing inaccurate Disc IDs.  If you have AnyDVD enabled, you'll still get the original, correct Disc ID.  This has been discussed in length with no resolution from Invelos... let me see if I can find the thread.

EDIT: Here is the URL to the discussion:

DVD Profiler is so stupid, it uses a charakter, which is not supported in filenames and does not allow to change it. Hours wasted just for that.

If you assign a number it will be smart enough to know to use the next available open number.

If you try to manually assign a number that has already been used, the program will throw up a warning although you can still use that number if you choose to do so.

You could either 1) manually assign numbers by editing the personal information of the affected profiles or 2) reassign collection numbers (from the file menu: Collection -> Reassign Collection Numbers...)
