    I just did a movie only copy yesterday keeping only the AC3 5.1-ch English audio track and both English subtitle tracks ending up with 97.8% compression. It turned out very nice.

    A full disc copy will leave you with 45% compression which is substantial and may increase your chances for playback issues. If you want a full disc copy but get rid of the foreign audio and subtitles you can get 56.6% which is a bit better but not ideal for top picture quality :)

    Which 5.1 audio stream did you use? I am seeing two, both at 433mb, didn't know if I could discard one to limit the compression. Also, do you run the analysis if you are at 97% compression? Or, when its that close to 100%, would it not make a difference?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    You want the one that says its English unless you want a different language of course. Should be the first one. The rule of thumb I use and it seems to work fine if I am at 85% or better I dont worry about anaylsis. Who am I kidding I never use anaylsis, but I would never recommend that you dont I would just say if you are only compressing the movie 15% I don't believe it is going to make any noticable difference.

    you need to select compression settings, you prolly have it on "no compression" select auto and it will fit it for ya!

    Nope Spderman 2 won't auto compress I think it has to much junk on there you are going to have to re-author or take out a bunch of the extra sound like directors comments and crap to get it to fit. i think they put to much crap on that disk, and Shrink will only compress so far.

    I personally don't use Deep Analysis unless the compression dips below 90%. I'm not sure anybody could notice a difference in quality with that little compression :)

    I just noticed that the second 433mb audio stream I saw was French, not English. Stupid mistake on my part.

    Thanks,
