Is there an easy way to drop unwanted audio tracks and subtitles when using platinum.

I think the same, I probe the Edited by Conrad. See rule 1 here: http://dvdxcopy.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/44696, that allows to takes out audio o sub that you donīt wanted and works great, SO WHY PLATYNUM donīt have these options?

I know how to manually take the audio tracks out, but I want platinum to do it for me, otherwise I have to mess around creating an image without the audio and then use Platinum or take them out after but this does not gain the space to give back to the video.

I would like this option within platinum.

That option currently doesn't exist in Platinum. It will, however, be an option in a forthcoming update to this software.

The expected update is sometime within the next 8 weeks.

321 Studios is adding a few nice options, but what order they're releasing them in is unknown.

Could any one tell me how much space is taken up by an audio track? In other words, if three audio tracks are available, how much less compression would you have by deselecting two of them?

I know it would vary from movie to movie, but would it make a significant difference?

I can only generalize as it is will depend on the individual movie. Generally speaking, captions do not take up much space, maybe a few megabytes at most unless the movie has a seperate commentary like from the director. By removing the commentary audio you can save perhaps a few hundred megabytes which is useful space for when you really want other extras or want to use less compression on a movie. Sometimes the movie will have a seperate video & commentary track. This is the sma e as having the movie twice. I have only found this a few times but it still exists. By removing this extra you save almost an entire disc in space. The biggest audio space killer is a movie with a DTS audio track. DTS generally is at least two times as big as a regular AC3 5.1 or 6 channel. You can really save a lot of space by removing DTS audio. Another good space saver is to remove foreign languages too. They generally use the same or almost the same as the standard AC3 or mono english audio. Again, foreign language captions are usually small.
