Running CloneDVD 18.104.22.168 and AnyDVD 22.214.171.124. I noticed that CloneDVD was still taking a very long time to rip one single chapter from a DVD, so I did some more tests.
DVD…Matrix Revolutions, chapter 9 (includes AC 3/6 only) with a total file size of 102 MB
-Analysing…2 min 14 sec
-Encoding…47 sec (104 MB size data…VTS_01_1.VOB)
-Burning at 4X…2 min 22 sec (using Nero 126.96.36.199)
CloneDVD 188.8.131.52 with AnyDVD running in the background
-Creating DVD files…14 min 32 sec (511 MB size data…VTS_01_1.VOB)
-Burning at 4X…2 min 7 sec
From this test, we can see that Shrink takes about 3 min to rip/transcode the 102 MB chapter 9. CloneDVD needs about 14 min to process chapter 9. Also note the final size of VTS_01_1.VOB in Shrink and CloneDVD. The Shrink file is almost the same as the original file size. However, the CloneDVD file size is much bigger…511 MB vs. 102 MB for the original.
It appears that CloneDVD is trying to transcode the whole movie, instead of just processing Chapter 9.
Why would CloneDVD take much longer to process a single chapter (no compression)? The burn time is okay. And why is the VTS_01_1.VOB file so much bigger than the original? I tested both burns and they were a okay.
