Open DVD Ripper can help you extract DVD movies to standard video files. Ripping DVD movies can protect your discs from mechanical damage and, at the same time, it can help you watch them on other types of devices. The program supports extracting contents from not only standard files but also DVD folders and ISO image files.
The program has two modes: Express and Expert. Using the Express mode, you just need to select a source and an output format. However, the Expert mode allows you to take control of the contents you wish to copy. Thus, you can decide whether you want to copy the complete discs or just the main movie. Similarly, you can pick just given titles, audio tracks and subtitles. In addition, this mode lets you perform some editing actions: you can trim a clip to extract a segment, crop the visible region of the frame or add a text watermark. Multiple effects can be used to change the movie’s appearance. Finally, you can also add 3D effects.
Many output formats are supported, including practically every popular video format and some audio formats. What is more, there are multiple profiles for each format and some of them are identified by the names of their supporting devices. Unfortunately, these presets cannot be customized.
In general, Open DVD Ripper is an excellent application. Its interface has a very simple design, which contrasts with those of other converters. In a world dominated by many similarly looking converters, this tool reveals itself as an alternative for those users who have gotten tired of the usual layout.
