Ever since I found Dvd2One I have greatly admired the compressor engine behind it. However, I have been backing up films for close to a year now (I’m up to around 150) using the tried-and-true CCE-DVDMaestro method. However, I must admit that Dvd2One’s speed is remarkable. I have been beating myself up recently whether to switch to Dvd2One. However, I can’t live without the custom menus which I love so much. Only the DVDMaestro method allows that. Using Dvd2One pretty much makes a DVD which plays like a VCD.
So my question is this: is it possible to rip a movie in file mode using DVD Decrypter, process it with Dvd2One, and then somehow demux the film out of the Vobs which Dvd2One creates into a m2v and AC3 file to then author as normal with DVD Maestro? I think this would be the best solution but I have no clue how to do it or even what utils to use. I have never used IFOEdit or IFOUpdate and don’t know a thing about messing with VOBS. If anyone can help me out or shoot down my idea I’d appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
P.S. I have no interest in compressing and using the menus which come with a film. I only like using my own since this saves more space on the DVD-R and allows for a higher bitrate.
