    I am looking for the simplest commercial product that will let me RIP (or
    convert from VOB after I RIP) a DVD (or small timeframe from DVD) into

    I have looked at, and discarded, the following:
    avs video converter - does not flag converted video correctly as widescreen
    imtoo dvd ripper - does not flag converted video correctly as widescreen

    I am also used to freeware tools (VOB2AVI, etc) and find them to be
    extremely too difficult to use (and I never even got them to work
    correctly). This is for my wife to easily select clips from DVDs to import
    into slideshows, so it needs to be simple.

    This seems to be a simple, common thing .... What is everyone using?

    I think DVD Shrink will fit the bill.

    If you use "Re-Author" mode, you can select which tracks to rip. Also,
    you can set a start and stop time.

    I may be mistaken, but I think VOBs are just MPEG-2 files, that might
    possibly be encrypted. DVD Shrink will decrypt that into a new VOB,
    that you should just be able to change the extension to MPG.

    DVD Decrypter may also be a candidate for you.

  3. DVDFab Decrypter (Free) and Tsunami MPEG Encoder MPEG Editor
    (Cheap). You rip and decrypt the VOBs with one click with DVDFab, then
    load them into MPEG editor to trim and render the clips to MPEG
    program files.

    I prefer the editor for this and be
    sure to note the various options during the save process.
    (The header aspect ratio setting is just one of them.)

    VirtualDubMPG will let you save frame to clipboard, compress, convert
    formats and save clips to AVI.

    Are you talking about wide screen enhanced anamorphic 16:9 DVD's
    Not sure if there is a anamorphic flag or not. Most app's have a
    resize where you can adjust vertical pixel size to squeeze the image
    to 16:9 proportions (with black bars at top and bottom) and then
    output 720 x 480.dvd compliant NTSC video MPEG2 file.

    My favorite
    TMPGEnc 3.0 XPress

  6. You can save yourself some time by copying the VOB's to the hard drive,
    change the VOB to m2v, take the m2v files into an editor like Encore, trim
    out what you don't want and re-output to DVD or use however you see fit.
