    Im not sure if its the right forum, but im trying to take a VOB file (out of a dvd) and convert it into an uncompressed, original aspect ratio avi file. I tried Virtual dub and it converts it fine except it takes the 16:9 (original file) and squishes it into a square. Tried playing with the settings, but everything seems to be in order and it still does not keep the 16:9 OAR. I also tried Avex DVD & Video Converter and it keeps the OAR, but only has compressed options like Xvid/DIVX, Mpeg4 for ipod, etc.

    A professor of mine gave me a DVD of some visuals to use so i could cut them into some interviews i shot, but he gave me the burnt dvd rather than a dvd with an avi file on it. :ugh: I usually edit from stuff i captured myself from minidv (never have used existing DVD footage in anything ive edited) so im not too familiar with the ripping process.

    NE sugestions? :x:

    on my mac i use mediafork, it has an option to create an xvid avi keeping it at 100% quality

    you could use handbrake on a windows pc.

    Are you trying to convert it to AVI just to edit it? If so, why? You can flip it to MPEG (since it already is mpeg) and edit it that way. VideoReDo should be able to clean it up to straight mpeg a lot faster than converting it to an AVI.

    i just thought avi because normally when i capture using a windows machine (which im on) the mini DV raw footage is captured as a DV AVI as default :dunno:

    thanks for the different suggestions, ill try that now.

    Auto GordianKnot will do that and more.

    Personally I would love some automated utility that could go from legally owned DVD (yes people still BUY movies ya know!) to RipIt4Me -> Shrink -> DivX/Xvid/whatever a media center could play , I hate stocking up dvd's on shelves when a media center is just so much cleaner option

    I know it can be done, but I want a 1 click solution :)

    The problem with AutoGK is it's slow as hell. For MPEG to AVI DivX Pro converter or Avi.Net are both much faster.
