I plan on getting the iMac refresh next week and I've decided on the 27" model for that awesome display. This is my first foray into OSX and want to fully utilize everything it has to offer. My first agenda is to rip my DVD collection so I can have it all on my iMac. Based on my limited time here, I keep seeing a program called Handbrake mentioned. Is this all I would need as far as movie purposes go? Can someone give a brief rundown on what Handbrake is used for and what is the best way to rip movies? For example, should I rip a movie into AVI format and also rip a smaller version for iPhone and iPad purposes? Do you rip the AVI first and then convert the MP4 version from the AVI file, or convert it directly from the DVD? How long does it take to rip and convert a 2 hour movie on an i5 processor? Can anyone give any other tips or apps that I should look into? I want my iMac to be my one stop source for all media. I am already familiar with iTunes since I use it on Windows and plan on using iPhoto for all of my pictures.
