If you would like a file export of my DVD Profile for testing at some point I'd be happy to provide it to you.

At the very least I would like a utility that could automate the process of creating the small DVD covers for the A-Z pages from DVD Profiler. This would be used to assist one in getting the intial PCF up and running, not to update their PCF as they add new titles from that point forward. For a programmer it might be simple to do, but unfortuantely I'm no programmer. I do have a few friends that could pull it off. They've just been too busy.

I envision the utility to include the fields below:
Field 1: Browse to file exported from DVD Profiler.
Field 2: Browse to the directory where the large DVD cover images for DVD profiler are stored, though I'd imaging the utility could find this location on its own via the registry.
Fields 3 & 4: Choose the width and height you would like each front DVD cover image resized to.
Field 5: Choose the file format each image will be saved as.
Filed 6: Browse to the destination directory where the images are to be saved.

Most importantly, this utility would save the DVD cover images naming each by their assigned collection ID in DVD Profiler. While there would still be the manual process of inserting the DVD cover images to buttons in PPENG, then linking each to the proper disc loading macro at least the initial process of building the DVD cover images would be streamlined. Finding a way to automate creation of the A-Z pages for each genre using DVD Profiler would be most excellent however, as one could then automate both the initial startup process and needed updates each time a DVD cover needs to be added. I'm pretty set in my ways at this point though. I really don't mind jogging DVD cover images down to make room for new titles. It gives me something mindless to do while listening to music and taking a break from whatever. Having the option to automate some or all of these processes would be pretty sweet though.
