[QUOTE=Kerry56;2561947]Most of the people who make copies of their blu ray disks use AnyDVD HD as the decryption program. It would be my first choice. Also, since you own the regular AnyDVD, an upgrade would be less expensive than buying both DVDFab Blu Ray Copy and Passkey for Blu ray. (not quite sure why you’d need both of them)
I don’t use DVDFab for conversion of blu ray, but from what I’ve read, it seems to be set by default on a very fast encode profile. They seem to have emphasized speed and convenience over better quality, and I’m not sure how much control you have in that program.
BD Rebuilder has quite a lot of options, and you cannot beat its price. It uses the X264 encoder, which is being updated quite often, and is as good as it gets for non-professional level high definition encoding with H264. I’ve recently read that Pegasys (makers of TMPGenc products) have switched from the MainConcept encoder over to the X264 encoder in their commercial products, which is a good indication of the quality of X264. So, to sum up, even if someone [B]gave[/B] me a copy of DVDFab Blu ray, I’d still use BD Rebuilder.
I have no idea what DVDFab is using for their encoder, they may pay to use X264 also. So take my criticisms with a grain of salt. I just don’t particularly like their business strategies or history.[/QUOTE]
Thanks again Kerry. Looks like I’ll be able to install the drive tonight. I’ve printed your BD Rebuilder guide for reference to use. You mentioned ClownBD also - is there a guide for it? I went to the homepage and there was only links to download the author’s products. Which brings me to ask - is ClownBD Copier different from ClownBD? I’m a little confused about this one. I want to try both programs to see which one I’ll prefer. Please excuse all the questions but I have to ask them before I forget. LOL
