I hate to asking this, because I'm sure one of the main answers would be 'try them...' or 'it depends!', but I am updating my PC on the 'DVD9 to DVD5' issue and, looking on the net, I have read many people speaking of DVD Shrink and DVD2One.
(I can't consider DVD Revuilder because it takes too much disk space - about
4 Gb of temp space - and I cannot afford to run it, on my PC. I need a transcoder, not a re-encoder).
I would have only this question, and I hope someone someone more experienced than me can answer me (once he/she knows that the quality is my top issue, and time is not): I cannot decide among last version (3.2) of DVD Shrink (with all the quality enhancements like 'perform deep scanning analysis') and DVD2One v2.
Now, let's suppose that I only want to shrink the main movie on a DVD5 (that is, removing all extras from the DVD).
I also have heard that, only DVD2One, if might happen that some unwanted stuff (like FBI warnings or logos) remains, taking extra room on the DVD. Is it true?
Therefore, my question is: to make a 'movie only' backup, what would be better?
A) DVD9 --> DVD5 with DVD2One (maybe, having last version of AnyDVD in the background, to have high DVD decrypting power).
B) movie-only with zero compresson with DVD Shrink (having last version of AnyDVD on the background) [DVD -> DVD without extras on my HD] + further compressing of the movie movie (> 4.3 GB) --> movie (4.3 Gb) with DVD2One.
C) simple use of DVD Shrink for both 'movie only extracting' and 'shrinking'.
Could someone give me some suggestion, please?
