Dvd rippers with editing functions

I have been experimenting with some products, and find for my use, a good dvd ripper usually requires some basic editing functions. Unfortunately, not many have a CLIP fade in or fade out to black. It appears that you need an editing software program also. I am happy with AoA ripper, but need that fade in and out for youtube. Any ideas, or just add and buy Cyberlink Power Director?

Fades require re-encoding, at least for the duration of the fade plus or minus a second. That’s why rippers don’t have that function. For YouTube re-encoding probably won’t matter, nor would format. If it’s just simple fade in/out you want AVIDeMux can do that and encode to a smaller format for upload.
