I don't have DV masters of some of the films I've worked on, and must rely on DVDs. How do I get a high quality VOB file into the computer using Handbrake?
Here have been my experiences so far:
On default settings, the discs I ripped played fine, but there was a clearly visible loss of resolution due to the compression. It was roughly the difference between a master Quicktime or MPEG file and its Youtube transfer.
I tried setting the transfer quality to 100% and the bitrate to 5000 based on a friend's advice. This improved the resolution, but the picture kept stalling, at several points, the video seems to be tripping on LSD.
What are ways around this problem? Is there anything else I should keep in mind?
