Before you start to convert DVD, you must specify the settings of the original and output files. Some encoding settings are located directly in the main window. Here you can specify the folder on the hard disk, which will be saved file, select the output file format, as well as to determine its size. If it is planned that in future videos will be recorded on a CD-ROM, the file size is set equal to one of the standard volume of the disc, but you can choose any other size. If the size of the resulting file compression exceeds the following file is created, etc.
In recent years, one can often find DVD, which supports Multi-Angle option. This means that on the same disc can be recorded several options video images captured from different camera angles. While viewing this DVD, you can choose one of the available camera angles. For example, if the DVD is recorded live, it can be viewed from the balcony of the first row, or even from behind the scenes. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum supports Multi-Angle and lets you select the desired point shooting.
source file settings, which are assembled in the window Input Settings, should coincide with the video settings recorded on the DVD. Thus, for example, specify a video recording format (Pal / NTSC). Video recording format is usually indicated on the DVD-box next to the area. Each of these formats has its own frame rate, so incorrectly specified format will adversely affect the quality of the resulting video.
Another important setting of the source file is the type of interlacing (fields offset). To eliminate the "comb" effect, you can use a deinterlacing filter one of the following types - the even fields, odd, using interpolation. Because guess what type of interlacing used on DVD, it is impossible, before converting the video, try using one of the deinterlacing filter to a small area of ??the film (it is desirable that the frame has a dynamic scene, as the effect of "comb" is in this case the noticeable best) . If interlacing effect on the resultant image is not visible, the filter is selected properly, otherwise need to try another.
Among the settings that determine the sound quality, you can select the volume level, support for Dolby Surround, as well as the option to synchronize audio and video. The latter option is disabled by default and can be used in those cases when it is required to periodically synchronize video and sound (e.g., in the presence of a large file).
Note that WinX DVD Ripper Platinum lets you encode video and audio separately. Such a decision can resort if the computer power is not possible to get good results with simultaneous compression of audio and video tracks. However, in this case, you will need an additional program for video processing, which will combine the teachings of audio and video file. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum has no such opportunity.
If there is a DVD audio track in multiple languages, you may need to change the settings for the audio output file. This can be done in the main WinX DVD Ripper Platinum window. Immediately select the subtitle language. They show on the resulting video encoding can be disabled altogether by selecting None.
If necessary, you can edit the position and color of subtitles. If the window Input Settings check box Original colors, while encoding color information is taken from a file * .ifo. Offset Option is responsible for the displacement of the position of subtitles on the resulting video.
Finally, if for DVD copy protection function need DeCSS. CSS (Content Scrambling System) - an encryption system, using which keys to decode written on inaccessible for normal reading area of ??the disc. When copying DVD video with such keys are not copied. Therefore, when trying to playback video is not a "native" support, the system can not find the keys, and files can not be played. DeCSS system allows you to bypass this protection. The WinX DVD Ripper Platinum also implemented the ability to bypass the copy protection MacroVision. To remove the protection, simply you set the appropriate check boxes.
the output file (Output Settings) settings depend on what format video conversion is done. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum supports three types of formats - SVCD, VCD, and AVI. To date, SVCD and VCD formats are obsolete and can not withstand competition from AVI, compressed codec DivX, so setting these formats does not make sense to consider. Unlike the formats SVCD and VCD, AVI files can be compressed by any of the codecs installed in the system.
After you have selected the type of codec used, you must set the resolution of the output file. In the event that the resolution setting of the output file does not match the size of the original video, it makes sense to use multimedia MMX and SSE instructions used by the processor. Using Resize function allows you to improve the quality of the image smoothing and accelerate file processing. When compressing into DivX worth to remember that this codec supports only certain resolution (352h240, 640x480, 720x480, etc.). br>
The most high-quality image will appear if the resolution of the output file will be identical to that in which a video recorded on DVD. This is usually 640x480 or 720x576. Thus eliminating the need to use smoothing algorithm when zooming. However, the use of large high quality image resolutions can lead to the fact that the size of the resulting file size will be significantly higher than standard blanks. So if you are planning to create a video file of size 650-700 MB, high resolution will have to sacrifice.
The size and quality of the output file depends on the codec parameters. Each codec has its own set of parameters that define the quality of coding. For codec DivX main parameter is the bitrate. In order to properly determine the bitrate, you can use the built-in utility Bitrate Calculator. It called it from the codec settings. Powered Calculator follows: You specify the desired output file size, duration of the film and audio bitrate, and the program automatically calculates the required value of the bit rate at which the file will have a predetermined size.
