Hi All...

Was just wanting to know the best software to download for Macs? The software I have has taken the shite out of the quality of my dvd rips.

What software are you using? MacTheRipper is what I've heard is good, there's also OSEx. Someone else can tell you more. I never use my Mac for editing. Guide for ripping with OSEx and if you go up, for using iMovie for makign AMV's Here

also worth considering, PAL disks are notorious for being hard to clean up.
often you will run into blending (which is hard to deal with)

in that case, look at this (under full field blended)

unfortunately, this method uses AviSynth...which only works with Windows
you may want to do your footage prep on a Windows PC if possible

Thanks.

I'm using OSEx at the moment and then DiVA to convert them into .mov files to import to iMovie.

When you are done with your video in iMovie you will want to export the video from iMovie. With that export you will want to use ffmpegX to compress it to XviD.


OSex is a good DVD ripper, but it is no longer being developed. So MacTheRipper would be the better choice since it is still be updated, and ther are so many more option you can do with it. Here is the link for you.

Sorry for the double post, but the MacTheRipper link I gave you was wrong. If you clicked on it, it takes you to a page that tells you it has been shut down. Well that really is not true.
Here is a link that will let you download it.
Here is the MacTheRipper page.
