((note : I generally do not combine all of my movie segments into one large file unless I am going to burn it to Video CD. The reason is because it is easier to manage several small movie files, rather than one large movie file especially if you are transferring the movie over slower mediums. If you desire to combine your entire film into one file use Quicktime Pro.))

All Processes, Entire Movie, Estimated Compression: 1/10th Original
All Processes, Entire Movie, Estimated Size: 680 MB, ONE 700 MB CD IN DATA FORMAT
All Processes, Entire Movie, Estimated Time: 19 Hours, 6 Minutes, 20 Seconds

Times can be cut significantly, along with computer management by duplicating a52decX 0.25 and DiVA 1.0 with 3ivx plug-in, After duplication launch the copy and duplicate the next file in the series.

Help files for all of this software can be found on their website. I do not proclaim to be a DVD Ripping genius, but do want to share the wealth of knowledge with other macintosh users that desire to burn.

All Software Used Can Be Found On http://www.macupdate.com , http://www.versiontracker.com or general searched for on http://www.google.com .
