Wombler posted this in another topic & that gave me the idea to start this topic . So please post your main method of ripping from a commercial movie disc. Doing what you need or want to to get it ready to burn. Then the software you use to burn it.
[QUOTE=Wombler;2602365]TBH I find it more flexible using multiple programs as you can do an awful lot more.
Personally my own sequence is:-
DVDFab - To rip the full disc.
To edit the disc structure and if necessary the start point.
To remove unplayable PGCs and unwanted content.
To edit and remove unwanted menu screens.
And to edit the menu commands to make removed content unselectable.
DVD Rebuilder - To compress (if required).
ImgBurn - To burn.
If I want to produce a movie only copy and there’s no compression required then I use DVD2One as it’s exceptionally quick at doing this.
My usual method is to rip with CloneDVD2 with Any DVD running to decrypt.
I use CloneDVD2 to remove anything I don’t want .Most of the time I use
“Copy DVD Tittles” with preserve menus unchecked . I also uncheck all audio tracks I don’t want. For me this is English Dolby AC3/6 . I leave in all the subtitles because they take little space. Also I only rip with the
" DVD+/R DL " setting that way the
" Target size sufficient, transcoder disabled " message. That way CloneDVD2 isn’t “transcoding” the movie . I do the rip to a HDD.
Then if it needs compressing I do so with DVDRebuilder . Right now I’m using HCenc_025 as the encoder . I tried HCenc_026 but didn’t like it as well.
For the burn I’m split between CloneDVD2 & ImgBurn both seem to work equally well for me.
Usually I use Verbatim + or -R .
For not my main method & on a difficult disc I use h2cdimage with Any DVD . Then load that .iso into Virtual Clone Drive. Then do the rest of the process with my main method.
I do ocassionally use DVDFab if it has been updated first & I need to rip a new release movie . Or if my main method fails on a certain disc.
I do need to learn PGCEdit a lot better & use it when I need to .
