Rip BD/DVD to high-quality DNxHD file for Avid Media Composer on Mac
Description: Best DVD/BD to high-quality DNxHD solution, so you can edit DVD/BD movies in Avid Media Composer on Mac with least quality loss.
"Hi I'm an amateur video editor who wants to make some trailer or mash-up to improve my skills. I do own hundreds of Blu-ray and DVD discs but want to extract some clips out to Avid Media Composer for editing; high-quality video is my first choice. Is there any good software for this? Many thanks!"
To extract clips from Blu-ray and DVD disc is much different from playing back directly. Firstly, commercial DVD and Blu-ray are protected from copying, so you have to roll off disc protection firstly; then the format and quality issue.
The workflow seems to be complicated. However, with Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac I'm running, it can't be easier to get high quality DNxHD file from BD/DVD. Pavtube ByteCopy is the "All in one" Blu-ray ripping software, simple and easy to use with lot's of presets which I can change. Which I like most is the DVD/Blu-ray decoder, I don't care about protections, Pavtube take card about everything. As long as your disc has been downloaded, it's decrypted. So make sure your Internet connection is ok. And it provides multi-track MP4/MOV/ProRes presets in which I can isolate dialogue and music in one movie if I want.
