Latest version of my collection of FREE ripping tools:
Updated with FFT3dGPU an FFT based 3D noise filter accelerated by the GPU to get rid of that irritating noise on my tv cable.
Very quickly written guide to ripping a DVD or a collection of .mp(e)g files:
-Make a folder named DVDRip
-Extract RippingTools-2007-06-24.exe to a subfolder named Tools
-install the things in DVDRip\Tools\!!!install these
-Use DVD Decrypter and place the VTS_01_*.VOB files in the DVDRip folder
---press F2, select all VTS_01_*.VOB files and press OK
---place a starting marker [ and ending marker ] in the preview
---press F4, save the project as DVDRip\01.d2v and let it finish
---press F5 and look what frame type says, should be interlaced or progressive, also look at the size of the preview window, it could be halved in horizontal resolution
-There should be these .bat files in the DVDRip\Tools folder for DVD ripping with the state of the art compression algorithms:
---Select one of these files based on the observations of the frame type the horizontal resolution and the wanted aspect ratio and run it with the correct parameters
---These are command line batch files and they use 2 parameters on the command line, example:
recode-mpeg2-Hfull-Vinterlaced-640x480-512-64.bat "..\01 T01 2_0ch 256Kbps DELAY -608ms.ac3" 10
"..\01 T01 2_0ch 256Kbps DELAY -608ms.ac3" -> audio file produced by the dgindex project
10 -> amount of threads that you would like x264, the video encoding program, to use
---Let the encoding process finish
-After the encoding process you sould have a file called 01.mkv in the DVDRip folder
---Use DVDRip\Tools\avimux\AVIMux_GUI.exe to offset the audio with the amount of ms indicated by the audio filename, in this case -608ms
---It is possible that the sync of audio and video is not exactly correct, check with a video player in slow motion, the included DVDRip\Tools\mencoder\mplayer.exe is ideal for this.
---Correct the 01.mkv file again with AVIMux_GUI.exe to the exact offset.
