    So ive been trial and erroring for about a week. I use many programs like Xilisoft,IMTOO,DVD Catalyst 2.0, and all the other 'basic' video editing tools.

    I am trying to get DVD's into AVI files approx 700-900MB in size w/ decent/high quality.

    I seem to be at an impass. While im not a noob at this, im also not an expert. Ive done lots of extra research and tried countless different programs, but still I see a bit of interlacing and annoying big pixels. Ive tried all kinds of codec types, xvid,divx,avi,mo4,h264

    What programs do you use to go from DVD-AVI and what codec/settings do you use???

    Thanks all

    Thanks for the advice,and yea lol i noticed it takes a wihle, but is there anything that is more mainstream, something more basic but still puts out good quality. I noticed AGK has lots of other small tasks that have the be 'clicked' and usually i am not around, being mostly at class or something, anything thta converts faster and have that 'set it and forget' mentality?

    The time it takes depends on your equipment

    It takes me about an hour with AutoGK

    If you have your dvd movies saved as ISO files(only works on ISO files) try Fairuse 2.6. The free version of this program will allow you to get a DVD movie and convert it to a 700mb AVI. The full(paid version) allows a final AVI file of up to 1400mb. From my expierence for decent quality you need at least 1000mb (for my bigscreen LCD), but alot of people are satisfied with 700mb. I've used this program for over an year with out any audio/sync problems. It's fairly easy to use, and you can batch convert numerous ISO files at one time with the program turning your computer off when it's done. I tried many other programs but this the only that never let me down.
    From my own expierence (non-scientific viewing on TV screen) I think DIVX has the better quality at the lower file size, but for compatibility reasons I just used XVID and made my files larger to compensate, and always use the 2-pass encoding method.
