However, before you start the conversion, you may find the following operations to be very useful:
Trim movie: If you don’t need to convert the entire DVD movie, you can just capture a clip from it to convert. See the two pairs of scissors under the Preview window? The scissors one the left are used to set the start time, and the scissors on the right are used to set the end time. Drag them to capture the clip you want to convert. If you want to precisely trim the video, you can click the Trim button on the top of the preview window.
Crop Video: There are always black edges around DVD movies; you can easily remove them with this DVD Ripper. Click the Edit icon to open the Edit window.
Go to the Crop tab, and you can set the output video aspect ratio crop the movie video. The program provides you with three methods to crop your video: select a crop mode from the Crop down-down menu, drag the crop frame around your video, or set the crop values (Up, Down, Left and right).
If you want to change the video effects, you can go to the Effect tab to set the brightness, contrast, saturation and select a pre-set movie effect.
