Reading on afterdawn…
I know that you have already received many responses on this subject but I’m gonna add my ‘two cents’ anyway. lol.
I use RipIt4Me (thanks goes out to arniebear for the tut) to rip in for simplicities sake and use the One Click mode so it’s all automatic. It does give a nice clean rip.
Then I use DVDShrink or Nero Recode2 if the compression is between 80-100% and write with IMGBURN on quality media (TY, Verbs, Ritek). This method only takes about 25-45 minutes on my machine, which isn’t a dual core. That is start to finish ripping, transcoding, and writing.
Now if the ratio is between 50-75% after ripping with RipIt4Me. I use DVD-RB Pro (with HCEnc) by browsing for the file that RipIt4Me added to the HDD. Again I write with IMGBURN on quality media (TY, Verbs, Ritek). Now this method takes an extra 2-3 hours due to the time consumption of DVD-RB Pro.
I know that you have already had similar posts but maybe this narrows down your choices to almost free stuff with the exception of DVD-RB Pro. Good luck to whatever you choose to use. lol."
I am wondering if their is something I am missing my only using clonedvd2+anydvd. Do i really need to learn how to use DVD-RB Pro in order to get good rips…A lot of the movies i do end up at about 65-80% but if it will make my movies more vidiv, I guess it couldnt hurt to learn.
Please some educated opinions would be great
