Hello,
I'm backup up some dvds becuase they are getting scratched. I have ripped htem as avi's i believe and iDVD is re-encoding them. Im' curious as to what iDVD re-encodes them to, so maybe i can not have iDVD re-encode them with a faster re-encoder. I'm trying to burn these dvds the fastest way possible and iDVD re-encoding them doesn't seem to be the fastest way. Or would Toast be faster to burn movies to a DVD? If so can toast do simple menu's? Maybe with a song, picture and a the name or something?

THanks,
Kamron

You may find it hard to get help on the topic as you are describing what appears to be an illegal activity (yes, I know it's a hotly debated topic, but the website follows US laws, and ripping commercial dvds without permission is illegal).

As a general response to what iDVD will use - and for that matter, ANY dvd authoring package, the video will be converted to mpeg1 or preferrably mpeg2 and the audio to pcm or AC3. avi is not a valid format for a dvd. to learn more - read here: DVD-Video - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My Macs: 2012 Non-Retina 15" MBP; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
