Greetings, 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. Thank you! p.s. I couldnt tell if this belonged in the newbie forum or not. That forum didnt seem to be what I was looking to do.
