I don't get the Mac The Ripper & HandBrake combination

    I read a post the other day saying how people use MTR to rip onto the HDD and then use HB to do the encoding (thus saving usage on the optical drive).

    However, I don't quite get the point. I'm trying to rip the last disc of Family Guy which has two eps and then a ton of pointless extras. With HandBrake I can see which two are the eps and rip them. With MTR I jave to do all 6.5GBs and then encode - it takes ages!

    Can I not preview and set up a queue in MTR?

    Sometimes you want to copy a bunch of DVDs to your drive with MTR so you can pile up a massive queue to leave going over the weekend, or something. Other times you just want to duplicate the DVD and re-burn it at full quality, but without DRM.

    Sure, I get that, but it seems a bit more tricky as Handbrake is more user-firendly.
