Generator (image formatting) parameters are used when you create a new image. Before a volume is created, you can change the Geneerator parameters with the SETGENPARMS command. Once a volume is created, some of the parameters can still be edited via the SETVOLPARMS and SETTRACKPARMS command for the volume/track.

SystemIdf Identifies the system. The default value is an empty string. PublisherIdf Identifies the individual who specified what to record in the image set this image is part of. If the first character is an underscore (_), the rest of the field specifies an identifier for a file containing the publisher identification. This file must be loaded in the root directory. The default value is an empty string.

DataPreparerIdf Identifies the individual or other entity who controls the preparation of the data to be recorded on the image. If the first character is an underscore (_), the rest of the field specifies an identifier for a file containing the publisher identification. This file must be loaded in the root directory. The default value is an empty string.

ApplicationIdf Identifies how data is recorded in an image set of which the image is a member. If the first character is an underscore (_), the rest of the field specifies an identifier for a file containing the publisher identification. This file must be loaded in the root directory. The default value is an empty string.

ApplicationUse Identifies the language for an EB (XA) disc. Refer to the Sony Electronic Book System, Data Format Technical Specification, version 2.1, June 1993, Sony. The default value is an empty string.

CopyRightFileIdf Identifies the file loaded in the root directory and contains a copyright for the image set. The default value is an empty string.

AbstractFileIdf Identifies the file loaded in the root directory and contains an abstract statement for the image set. The default value is an empty string.

BibliographicFileIdf Identifies the file loaded in the root directory and contains bibliographic records interpreted according to standards that are subject of an agreement between the originator and the recipient of the image. The default value is an empty string.

MaxNrDirsInVolume Identifies the maximum number of directories that can be created for the CD/DVD. This number is limited only by the available space on the CD/DVD. However to prevent unnecessary overhead it is advised to increase the default value only if necessary. The default value is 8192.

MaxDirNestingLevel Identifies the maximum number of directories that can be nested for the CD. The root level is one. ISO allows a nesting level of up to eight. GEAR allows a nesting level of up to 24. The default value is 24.

IsoJolietNameHandling Specifies how file and directory names are handled for the ISO-9660 and Joliet name space. The default value is 5. This option will create a Joliet name space in addition to ISO-9660. The Joliet name space will allow almost any legal file name characters and a name length up to 64 characters. For the ISO name space, names are not translated and kept as they are, possibly with illegal ISO-9660 characters. The semicolon and version number are not appended to the ISO file name in this case. The maximum allowed name length is 64. For names longer than 64 the software truncate the name. This option will create a Joliet name space in addition to ISO-9660. The Joliet name space will allow almost any legal file name characters and a name length up to 64 characters. For the ISO name space, names are translated and truncated to ISO level 1. The semicolon and verion number are appended to the ISO file name in this case. The maximum allowed name length is 8+3. This option will create a pure ISO-9660 name space without Joliet. In this ISO name space, names are not translated and kept as they are, possibly with illegal ISO-9660 characters. The semicolon and version number are not appended to the ISO file name in this case. The maximum allowed name length is 64. For names longer than 64 the software truncate the name. This option will create a pure ISO-9660 name space without Joliet. In this ISO name space, lowercase characters are translated to uppercase characters. For Names that still contain non-ISO characters, a dialog prompts you to translate the name to an ISO-compliant name or keep it as it is (in upper case). The semicolon and version number are not appended to the ISO file name in this case. The maximum allowed name length is 64. For names longer than 64 the software truncate the name. This option will create a pure ISO-9660 name space without Joliet. In this ISO name space, names will be translated to an ISO-9660 compatible filename. Characters illegal to ISO-9660 are replaced by an underscore '_'. The semicolon and version number are not appended to the ISO file name in this case. The maximum allowed name length is 64.
