HI All, …
great forum, and excellent DVDFab program…
Prolly a stoopid newb questions but I haven’t been able to find the answers:
Using DVDFab, …selecting Generic to rip and store my movies on my PCH Media Tank in AVI format, … initially the movies were going in at bitrates that made the file sizes about 720MB, … but I’m finding that produces too many compression artifacts on my 60" Sony 1080 TV, … so, after reading what another poster said, … I began upping the Bitrates to 1500 in the configure menu, which produces a much nicer display. My question is, … what’s the relationship between bitrates and the original VOB file? ie how high do I have to set the bitrate to duplicate the original movie? (mybe there isn’t a relationship, but I don’t know) …
Maybe a better question would be What is teh bitrate of the original VOB file?
Also in the config menu, … I see the resolution section… and if I rip a fullscreen movie, … it selects 640 x 480 (ie 480 lines of resolution on a SD DVD)… which seems correct. Now, for a widescreen movie like “7th Voyage of Sinbad” the movie is widescreen at 1.85:1 … How do I calculate what the correct resolution should be? … in the configure section of DVDFab.
thanks again for a reat forum, … I’m still googling for these answers, but if someone could help out or point me in the right direction, I sure would appreciate it.
