I just bought a PC for video editing, and I need some recommendations for software.
What I need, is a dvd ripper that can rip episodes and/or selected scenes from episodic, copy protected dvd's to the highest quality. Also, recomendations on what format to use (i.e. divx, mpeg etc) would be helpful. I was looking at the AOA dvd ripper, but I'm not sure if that rips ALL copyprotected dvds.
For an editor, I need software capable of editing scenes together, cutting out blank space etc. i'd need to burn to dvd at the highest quality (or reasonably high quality) with menu's. I dont need anything exceptionally fancy for this. An imported picture with still shots would be perfect for a menu.
Thank you in advance. Please be patient with me, Im new to this. And I assure you, no illegal bootlegs will be done with this, if thats a concern. I collect old films, and I'm trying to put everyhting in chronological order.
I'm pretty new to this, but I've been trying to rip/convert some dvds (my own material - I'm an actor). A friend recommended DVDDecrypter and Gordian Knot (or is it Auto Gordian Knot...?), and they seem to do the trick. And they're free. Off the top of my head, I forget which does which, but you'll need them both and they seem to work in conjunction.
