Tip: How to make a avcHD menu without re-encoding the video files?

Hi to all to stop by,
i found a solution for having to titles [videos] on one single DVD 4.7GB with a menu without encode de files in avcHD. For that you need this tools,
Virtual CloneDrive free
PowerDVD not free
the last two are optional. For this test i have used two short movies that you can use at will and free from the open movie project "Elephants Dream" and "Big Buck Bunny" and on the end of this tip i will provide the file that is ready to burn to a dvd
a avcHD with the size of 1.77Gb, can be played on PS3 or Blu-Ray, is bigger but you will see the end resault and quality,
ok i have some screenshots to help a bit and this is not for explain the settings of any this programs that i will be using on this tip so for start go to "Elephants Dream" and this other "Big Buck Bunny" and download  the short movies if you want use this two or use any other mkv files if you wich for this tip, ok  open TSmuxeR load the first file elephant dreams.mkv add button  or drag & drop and save it a m2ts file do the
same for the big buck bunny.mkv, close the program

and open the multiAVCHD use add video files tab or simple drag & drop

highlight the 1st file Elephant dream.m2ts and click properties tab this will bring a new window 

here you can add a wallpaper or a front dvd  by clicking on the empty space of poster image, after playback change to go to menu and click ok. On the author tab select create top menu 
and slide menu,

this is my preferences but you can change to a different stile see " " click on start and choose blu-ray

and this will take more or less 10 minutes, on my 3.2Ghz 4 cores  but maybe will take more or less on your machine. After the process finish close the program and open the IMGBURN

and hit create image file from files/folders look for the folder that you create with muitiAVCHD
load the two BMVD and CERTIFICAT

give it a name and location and press start to build the iso image on 2.50 UDF.

Now this optional but to be frank i think is the best way to check this iso file before you burn it, because if there are mistakes you can delete and start over,
load Virtual CloneDrive mount the iso  and play it on powerdvd and if you are happy with the results then open again IMGBURN and burn it to a dvd, i hope that you found this tip useful.
If is there something that i should make different tell me on the comments and i will give you credit for it, thanks.

Ps: for a full dvd 4.7GB with 2 titles yours files should be 2GB each more or less, because combine the two and the menu will get about 4.25GB and believe or not this is the size of a single side dvd.

Thanks to:

My end file:
this is a iso file 2.5 udf ready to be burn to a dvd or mount it in virtual, but if you mount it in virtual and not have PowerDVD or WinDVD you not will see the menu.

Mkvextract command line in Ubuntu.

This post is to help me, because i forget the things very easy, so for me and maybe for you this is very easy.

Open applications and go to Ubuntu software centre search box write mkv
and install "command line tools to create and work with Matroska media files". Assuming that you have the "mkvtoolnix" on your system " "
How to extract the files from mkv?
All of my files go to my Downloads folder so open Terminal and use de command cd " change directory " exp: cd Downloads
Remember folders have up and lower cases letters, now that you have used de "cd" change directory command this is the easy part the name and the id of the tracks for the extraction, for the id or the tracks use mkvinfo
The command line is
mkvextract tracks myfile.mkv 3:myfile.S_TEXT/UTF8
This is a example for a 3 tracks mkv, if you wanted extract the video use the codec id for that track
command line
mkvextract tracks myfile.mkv 1:myfile.V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC

This help me to remember maybe help you to.
