Following the advice of the guides here on the org, I've always used DVDFab for ripping my DVD footage. By and large it's done all I've asked of it, but recently I have noticed an issue and I'd like to know if anyone else has experienced it and what workarounds are available.
I am making backups of my DVDs using the Copy Disc - Full Disc option (my trial period expired a long time ago so I can't use the Clone/Burn tool). I have selected "DVD9" compression to ensure that the disc is ripped fully and without compression. Despite this though, I've noticed that there's a distinct loss of quality in the ripped version.
These screenshots aren't from anime, but they perhaps most clearly illustrate my point:Screenshot from movie viewed from the discScreenshot from the version on the hard drive - .VOB file
I'm puzzled as to why this is happening, as again I chose "DVD9" to ensure that the disc was ripped fully. All other options are defaults. Does anyone else recognise what is happening here?
