I don't know if there was a better place to put this or not.
I've looked and looked and I can't look anymore without going crazy.
I'm trying to be able to take a Fullscreen version of "Bob's movie" (DVD with menus) and replace the video with a Widescreen version of "Bob's movie.avi" and keep the functionality of the the Fullscreen version's menus.
Can someone guide me on how to do what I'm asking?
The widescreen version is .avi format, but I have all the software I need to make that into a DVD image or folder. So you can assume it is that unless it's easier from the avi.
Is this possible with DVDReMake Pro 3.5?

It is possible with DVDRemake. Just open both files and copy/paste wide angle to same title PGC with full screen, than delete all full scree blocks.
Menu will than play in full screen and movie in wide.
You may have to check Video tab to make sure the wide screen is set properly, if not reset it.
If you want to keep both, than you need to import wide one in new VTS, but it will need new menu to be able to play either one.
I got it to work with VobBlanker. Thanks.

Oh, so now you want your subs (and other audio languages, maybe)? When doing the replace step in VobBlanker, only what's in that DVD you created from your AVI source will be included. The subs won't magically jump into the new DVD as subs are contained in the VOB files you created elsewhere. You can add subs after the fact, but it involves both knowledge and work.
Here's Baldrick's guide on how to do it:
I might suggest going to a subtitle site and downloading subs for the movie (assuming it's well-known), and then doing the AVI2DVD conversion again, this time including the subs. You didn't say what you were using to do the conversion, but most of the programs allow for the inclusion of subtitles. There are a bunch of subtitle sites listed at the top of the sticky here:
That step 9 you mentioned isn't for adding in the subs, but for cleaning up the IFOs to reflect the changed number of subs and/or audio tracks. If you wind up with different numbers of either as compared to the original, you might want to go through that step 9 and fix everything.
VobBlanker does nothing to the subtitles. It uses the colors of the original CLUT (Color LookUp Table), and not the CLUT of the DVD you created for replacing. If the subs are the wrong color then fix them using either PGCEdit or DVDSubEdit: Here's a guide for using DVDSubEdit for the job:
At least you have subs now, eh? Making progress. Just one simple step left to go before burning to disc.
