I know there is a lot of software out there that can convert m2ts, video ts folders but what could I use to rip a DVD in a uncompressed format? Could I just open a DVD on my mac and copy the video ts folder to a location? Thanks, appreciate it
Are you sure you're looking for uncompressed?Yes native uncompressed .....I guess essentially a one for one copy to have as a back up of DVDs to which I can convert at a later time to whatever format I decide. I guess I'm not Into having one universal rip for all my devices. Thanks
I think the OP meant to involve no further compression, as video DVDs are already highly compressed (MPEG-2), thus any transcoding will mean some kind of quality loss. I doubt though, the OP meant transcoding it to uncompressed SD, as that takes up 22MB/s (PAL, Avid Media Composer, 1:1 MXF Digital Betacam SD footage).Are you sure you're looking for uncompressed?Yes native uncompressed .....I guess essentially a one for one copy to have as a back up of DVDs to which I can convert at a later time to whatever format I decide.

Uncompressed SD video averages about 1gig per minute.
So yeah,i think you'd be better off using MTR.So I was encoding with 100% quality using x264 and…
Okay listen. 100% quality? You're going to end up with a video that's way larger than the source. It's sorta misleading, but we haven't figured out a better way of presenting it. Here's the deal: 100% quality isn't "the same thing as the DVD" or anything like that. For x264, it means lossless mode. Sounds good, huh? Not exactly. DVDs already use lossy compression. x264 can't eat compressed video. It needs raw, decoded video, which takes up a lot of space. In comparison to that, 100% quality, lossless x264 takes up little space. But in comparison to the lossy compressed source on the DVD, it will still be quite chunky -- and it won't look any better than the source, either. Only use it if you know what you're doing.
Of all the research and going through threads on the handbrake forum, most say 60-70%. Anything over that seems to be a significant increase in file size for negligible quality improvements. But I will give 100% a go.Well I don't know who told you 70% , true lossless is 100%,but a word of caution (from the handbrake faq)
So yeah,i think you'd be better off using MTR.
Also,is your blu-ray interlaced?Because if it isn't deinterlacing will just degrade video quality.
