I know there is probably no exact answer to this.
I have been playing with DVDs for a long time and now getting into bluray.
For years I used Dvd2one or dvd rebuilder (with CCE enc) depending on the quality of output I wanted, and I am now at establishing my setup for blurays.
My understanding his that after ripping the disc I could directly use Multiavchd to reencode / reauthor, and all would be done.
or I could use handbrake , or even BD rebuilder to rencode to the desired size before using multiavchd.
After playing with them for a few days, they all used the exact same tools (avisynth, ffdshow, haali...) so is there any value to this extra step (other than more options) form a quality standpoint?
In the dvd era, dvd rebuilder was giving access to cce, but now the encoder is the same...!!
