    "Excellent Capture Solution"

    November 9, 2007  |   By benbartlett1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have been using DVDxDV for about 3 years now and would like to share my delight with this software with any potential new users.

    Do not confuse this software with RIP software, it will not de-encrypt commercial DVDs. This is not the point of this software.

    It is designed for the modern production environment, which increasingly sees material being delivered to composers and sound editors (etc) on (non-encrypted) DVDs - rather than Beta SP or Betacam, as was the form in previous years.

    DVDxDV Pro will transparently transcode the entire contents of a DVD into any format possible via your Quicktime setup. However, for simplicity, it defaults to DV (for Final Cut Pro et al). Further, you can ask it to split audio off into separate files for later use.

    It does this as fast as your machine can do it - ie faster than a realtime capture via DVD player and Capture hardware - the expensive slow alternative.

    You might think I am en employee of this company - I am NOT! I am just so delighted that I am willing to spend this time writing this on their behalf.

    Other features: select a capture range (so you can select a scene etc to capture), de-interlace is also available to avoid a whole step (and HD space) in FCP if your source material is interlaced (often the case from an Avid playout), 16 and 24 bit audio rendering, and more.

    For the fast moving environment of a Composition Studio like mine, it is indespensible. It's a point and shoot solution to DVD capture challanges that has rarely failed.

    In the case where I have asked for technical support - I have had immediate and complete answers to my problems in all cases. I even received a concerned call from California on one ocassion - whilst they were still learning about how their software was being implemented in the field.

    Download it, check it out, pay for it if you like it. These guys rock.

    Ben Bartlett.
