VobBlanker is a tool able to blank, replace, cut and strip titles, more specifically, program chains.
VobBlanker is able to work (blank, preview, delete..) also in menu domain.

Few tips:

- Using different physical drives in input and output folder will increase a lot the processing performance.
- Processing in Input folder the desired VTSs and skipping the others is the fastest method to blank.
- CLI support: VobBlanker [-log] [-run] [-exit] project_file.ini

- Added: Control of minimum window size (in resizing windows)
- Added: Resizing grip indication (in the lower left corner)

- Added: "Cut inside" splitting the cell in two parts in MENUs domain.
