Are you saying that you can visually see a BETTER picture with DVD2ONE at the same compression level?
Nero Recode 2.x claims to have a better picture quality, but I can only confirm the speed improvement. So far, I have not seen any visual improvement given the same level of video compression with various "shrink" programs. Perhaps a magnified still picture will be more revealing...but then we're not doing a real-world performance test.
Can I split to two DVDs with DVD2one? Can I edit the start and end of the main movie title? And how is the support? Shrink/Recode would be best for the experienced users. However, CloneDVD is still the best PURE DVD backup program for the majority of people. Note that you need AnyDVD to backup with CloneDVD.
