    I don't believe there is an option in DVD Rebuilder Pro to re-encode only the extras.

    You could set the program to Steal Space from Extras. Put this option all the way to 50%, then do a complete backup. If you only need a small amount of space to fit onto a DVD5, then the extra room derived from the extras should be enough to keep the main movie at a very high quality.

    Remove extraneous audio streams also, unless you have need of them.

    The one software I know that works is DVD Shrink. Just set bonus material to 'automatic' and everything else to 'no compression'.

    Want to explain how to do that in the Pro version loster? Not being snarky here, just like to see how its done.

    I've used DVD Rebuilder Pro since it was in beta, but I haven't used it very often at all for the last few years, as I very rarely buy dvds anymore. I've switched to Blu-ray. And even when I was using DVD Rebuilder, I did main movie only backups the vast majority of the time.

    I think you rebuild and then use the edit tab. I didn't buy a pro copy though I just this remember from some documentation.

    I use the Pro Version and there's not a good way to do that. I'd use DVD SHRINK to grab the Titles I want into a DVD-9 sized File-Set. That would be comparable to creating a separate DVD for Bonus Features.

    THEN I'd used DVD REBUILDER and point it to that new DVD Fileset and "Encode Entire DVD". This way, I'd have easy selection of however many Titles with DVD Shrink's easy-to-use selections, and DVD REBUILDER's superior compression options for an ultimate DVD-5 file-set.

    Which means your memory may be wrong for all we know.

    I suppose the interested parties who bought the pro version could try contacting the author or risk posting on Doom9's official forum and asking.
