Maybe I am a bit dense but you seem to be asking about 2 different things. Do you want to create a DVD using unprocessed linear video (DVD Authoring)? i.e. Make a DVD out of raw footage. Or do you want to take existing movies and make a copy of them. i.e. rip and encode "Before Sunset" onto a new disc.jsb515 said:Is there any other software other then iDVD for ripping and encoding dvd ? Like on a more professional level ? maybe even free ?
