I am not sure you have been asked for this suggested improvement feature before. i did a quick search but could not immediately come to find nothing.
But i have been a DVDShrink user since 2003 when it was released and it has served me perfectly, it simply does everything you need and more. Now with the new protections on the disks (i.e Sony Arcoss and Ripguard) i am having major problems backing up these DVDs with shrink. People always suggest to use CloneDVD for these movies which i have tried out the trial of the latest version, but it does not offer one absolutely critical feature that Shrink does. And that is to remove specific scenes at the start and end of the movie. i.e specific amounts of the end and start credits.
Its just when i am backing up my movies there are frequent instances where if i remove just enough end and start credits, no comression is needed. Thus saving picture quality via the need to not compress at all. Or obviously the need for less compression if compression is a must if these are removed.
CloneDVD on my trial as far as i can see did not offer this, and for some perculiar reason no other transcoding programs i can find offer this except shrink and its updated counterpart nero recode (which is a step backwards from Shrink IMO as it is extrememly buggy).
So can i ask how possible is it to allow the feature of cutting of specific scenes at the start and end of the movie in a future version of CloneDVD or is this impossible with the setup of CloneDVD and the method it uses to backupd disks. I know it offers the ability to cut off certain Chaptors but i would rather cut by scene as i like to keep some of the start and end credits at the end of the disk so the backup does not end abruptly.
Thanks for your time, and happy new year.
