shrink is a great program. there’s a reason so many of us are hanging onto it so long after it’s become pretty much “obsolete” in terms of decryption!
i say obsolete in quptes because if you run anydvd in the background, you can use shrink like you normally would but with anydvd doing all the decryption jobs.
on a coupel particularly annoying titles you may have to use the anydvd ripper to rip to the hard drive THEN process with shrink, but most of the time you’ll be able to use shrink right from the disc.
and if you onyl have 1 dvd burner there’s really only one option. fire up anydvd, insert disc, open up shrink, make all of your selections and rip to hard drive. remove disc, insert blank dvd, burn, enjoy!
if you’re already comfortable with shrink, then the anydvd/shrink combo is great for you. many will also recommend clonedvd2 as a great complement to anydvd. I have all 3 and like them all.
the only thing i’d say clonedvd2 has that shrink doesn’t is the ability to remove extra titlesets, but keep the menu. id you remove titlesets in shrink, you cannot keep your menus.
