Ripped Intolerable Cru;ity (with DVD Decrypter) to my HD then started Shrink. Left all settings at default. Compression was 53% for the whole disc. I selected backup then a HD folder plus let Shrink make video & audio folders. Deep analysis said 33 minutes so I went to bed. Woke up the next morning, Shrink was finished & said it took 2 hours & 27 minutes. Played some of the shrunk movie on my PC with Nero Showtime. A little less sharp plus I noticed a few minor artifacts. No big deal since this was only a test. My PC is a 1.7mhz P4 with 512mb of memory. Computer is set up for DMA. My question: Is 2.5 hours normal for Shrink to do it's job at my PC's speed & system memory? It's not a problem. I'm just curious. I'm planning to use Shrink & Decrypter for "fair use" (?) copying of out of print (can't buy the movie on Amazon) movies rented through Netflix. I'm not trying to pirate anything. Just make a copy for my own use if the movie can't be bought (through Amazon) in new or good used condition. I hope thats OK with the group as I'd prefer to buy a legal copy (through a local store or Amazon) of the movie if it's still in print. I'm not interested in re authoring any movies as I'd prefer to backup the whole disc. I like too see all the extras before watching the movie itself.
