Probably obvious, but as I don't do many of these child profiles, wondering how the upcoming digibook release of The Ten Commandments should be profiled. This one contains both the 1923 and 1956 versions but unlike other releases where the 1923 was a child profile with the 1956 version info being in the parent, this one is like a box set, with the banner on the front saying "1923 & 1956 Feature Films".

Here's the thing, the 1956 version is spread across two discs while 1923 is just one. I know I do a child profile for the 1923 disc, but do I do child profiles for both 1956 discs? Like I said, don't do these very often but wasn't sure how to handle it, mainly the 1956 version.

I would look at the back cover and check whether the 1923 version is listed as a special feature or bonus material. If it is, I would configure it as a Bonus Feature Film (BFF) for the 1956 version profile.

On the other hand, if the 1923 version isn't a bonus or special feature, then the package may be a double feature. Lets face it, each film was derived from their own unique camera negative, so they are different films, hence, may be configured as a box set (subject to BFF criteria).

For a film spanning two discs in a box set child, I would add both Disc IDs into one child profile with disc descriptions "Main Feature (Part 1)" and "Main Feature (Part 2)".

Hope that helps.

Thanks. Yeah, based on the back, the 1923 version is not a special feature. I'll do what you suggested
