From the menu, select File -> Open Database and then click on the New Database... button to create another database. From there you can then add the titles you want in that specific new database.

You can already do that by: Find (Ctrl F) then click Formats; on the left click whichever one you want to see and you will be looking at only that category. When you are done click Clear All Filters and Ctrl F again to remove the find window. Hope one of these is the solution you are looking for.

If this isn't what you are looking for you could also try Tags.

Besides the option to create a filter or tags, you can create custom categories and move each media type into its own category.  All three of these options are more convenient than using separate databases.

Fully agree with others that separate databases is the least useful solution.

Using filters and saving them lets you select them really easy like this:


Creating collection categories can get you something like this:


Tags are not really useful for this purpose, because you would have to filter on tags instead of media type, so you wouldn't gain anything. That said, tags can be useful for a lot of other things.

Creating separate databases are only useful for very special purposes. I actually created one in order to take the snapshot of collection categories, because I didn't want to show my own categories as well, as that would confuse the picture. But for normal use, I don't see any reason to create separate databases.

If you need any help implementing either of the suggested solutions, please feel free to ask!

I'm not looking to start an argument but here an example of how tags can help. I have one that says "4K UHD & 3D in 1 case". It gets there quicker than clicking each one and the and button. But that's just me.

I agree. My point was that for just separating Blu-ray and UHD tags don't add anything. That's why I added that tags can be useful for other things.
