    i am talking about the one that you see at the beginning of most movies (the increasing sound with the THX letters in silver)

    You could rent a movie that has it and rip it using handbrake...

    i guess, maybe one of mine has it, ill see, but does anyone have it or has anyone done that with handbrake, BTW how would i just rip that, or would i have to rip the whole movie, if so how would i isolate that one clip?

    thanks

    Will handbreak capture all the proper channels for play back in 5.1 or above?

    i don't care about the sound quality really, as long as its stereo, but can i actually take out that individual section without ripping the whole dvd.

    Actually if the movie is in 5.1, i'm pretty sure handbrake can accomodate for that.

    And you probably can't just rip the THX seg, but you can rip the entire first chapter and slim it down in imovie.

    I find it funny that on that site it says for personal use only, not to be altered in any way, blah blah blah, and you just changed its format, and wnameth wants to use it in a video project of his!!
