Rivergate Software releases BluStreak Tracer 2

June 7, 2011. Rivergate Software has released BluStreak Tracer 2 and BluStreak Tracer 2 CMF, an upgrade and replacement for its previous product BluStreak Premaster.

We will continue support of DVDAfterEdit from this site, and please continue to post your questions and comments in the forums here.

DVDAfterEdit Standard and Mastering Edition runs best on Macintosh OS 10.4 (Tiger).

OS 10.5 (Leopard) removed support for some older dialog callbacks used by the Import/Replace VTS functions. The following work-around overcomes this problem:

Instead of opening a VIDEO_TS folder from within the application, click and drag the VIDEO_TS folder to the application file (either Standard or Mastering Edition). The application will perform correctly thereafter.

OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) also requires the above work-around. In addition, you must be sure to install PPC emulation (Rosetta), as it is now optional. For preview, you must also install the optional QuickTime 7, and you will have to reinstall the QuickTime MPEG2 component.

Snow Leopard has also removed support for parallel SCSI, required for DLT. All legitimate replicators now support DDP folders (Tape Images) on hard drive or DVD-R data discs.

Lion removes all support for PPC, and will not be capable of running DVDAfterEdit.

We recommend setting aside a Tiger boot disc or partition for best operation of DVDAfterEdit Mastering Edition.

DVDAfterEdit Mastering Edition 3.0.5d3 Released

DVDAfterEdit 3.0.5d3 Mastering Edition is available for download. This fixes an error in the placement of the AVDP (Anchor Volume Descriptor Pointer) at the end of the disc when building a DDP tape image (AKA Plant Direct) for CSS encryption. (It was misaligned in the sector). This error does not normally affect playability, but prevented Macrovision RipGuard from being applied.
