Is it possible to recreate the 3D Blu-ray ISO from HDD and reduce the size back to 50 gigz instead of 90?

How did you get a bluray ISO that is 90gb seeing as the largest Bluray is only 50gb to begin with ?Originally a member since 2001, LONG LIVE TARAN's!!!
Sure it's 50 but when you copy it to HDD it double size because of SSIF files.
Ripped with what ?
Maybe I am missing something here, but I have ripped a good 50 retail bluray disc's and I never had one jump up 40gb in size.......
They were the same size on my HDD as they were on the disc.Originally a member since 2001, LONG LIVE TARAN's!!!
I'm not ripping as ISO but Folders/Files.
One of our members (was it Cornucopia?) has talked about this 3D ripping stuff before. If I remember correctly it's not really truly 90 GB, but it's something somewhat similar to seemless branching on DVDs that makes it rip this way with some rippers. I think that only DVDFab can correctly rip some 3D BD discs. Anything else may give weird results like this. As Noahtuck asked, WHAT did you rip with? Answer the question if you want help.
It's theoretically possible to shrink 3D BD movies, but the only information I've ever seen on it required the shrunken files to be re-authored using VERY expensive commercial software. And the shrinking is kind of ugly with some quality loss.
Finally, we've had reports that some "rip and burn" jobs on 3D BD discs that didn't need conversion resulted in BDs that 3D BD players refused to play. I'm no expert so I can't tell you why this happened, I can only pass on that it's been reported to happen, but those who reported it didn't name the discs it happened with or provide useful details on the ripping and burning either.
Maybe one of our 3D BD experts will chime in later.
Thanks for the heads up jman but if you select the BD folders on disc and right click then properties you will get that double size.
The files are somehow merged like if they were one i mean the 2D track the 3D track.
All i want is to add my own subtitle to the disc then re-burn, i don't care about features or the menu it self actually.
Is it possible to add subtitle to the movie only then re-create the iso without getting double size?
You're deceived into seeing 90 GB because there are two versions, 3D and 2D. Much as jman said already, and the 2D version is there whether it's locked out or not. The left view, IIRC, is usually the 2D version, the right view references it and has the differences. That allows for overall smaller file size, since the right view can be considerably smaller.
If you want a correct 3D rip, it's gotta be done as an ISO. Then you can use IMGBurn to burn to BD50. That's supposedly reliable and should play on most standalones.
Ripping as files won't work as you've discovered.
Nor can you add subtitles without expensive software.Pull! Bang! Darn!
I see, then i will stick with 1:1 copy for now until something easy come up in the future for 3D re-authoring.
