1…Ripping _VIDEO files using DVDShrink (no compression)…7.5gb each approx per disk
2…Converting ifo files so they are separate episodes to DivX format…highest settings…in DVDRipper Platinum
3…Then putting those DIvx episodes into ConvertXtoDVD
I can get quite a few episodes on 1 disc and overall i’m pretty happy with the result…However the sound isnt great and i get banding on the video sometimes…(especially dark areas).
Do you think converting to DivX first is the problem?
Can i out my video files directly into ConvertToDVD without converting to DivX first…if so will this separate the info into separate episodes?
I’m not familiar with DVDRipper Platinum, but I would recommend trying DVDfab Plat,to do-it all…
Anyhow,why not just use DVDshrink in 'Re-Author mode and use ‘start/end’ frame feature and save each clip to it’s own folder…Or DVDDecrypter in IFO mode for chapter backup…Or run through an editor w/o converting to avi…
The converting to avi is an unnecessary step,and yes most likely the problem…
