1. What is Side by Side 3D?

    In side-by-side 3D, a full 1080p or 720p frame consists of two halves on the left and right, with the

    entire frame for the left eye scaled down horizontally to fit the left-half of the frame, and the entire

    frame for the right eye scaled down horizontally to fit the right side of the frame. Thus, in the case

    of 720p content (resolution of 1280 x 720), each frame will actually consist of the horizontally scaled

    frame for the left eye with a resolution of 640 x 720 and adjacent to it, the corresponding frame for

    the right eye at the same 640×720 resolution. When the 3D ready TV receives this side-by-side

    3D signal, it splits each frame to extract the frame for each eye, and then rescales these individual

    frames to a full HD resolution using upscaling algorithms.  It then displays these upscaled individual

    frames alternately in a frame-sequential manner that is in sync with your active shutter 3D glasses.

    To sum up, it is just a method to deliver 3D content and also provides an excellent 3D viewing


  2. How long will it take to copy or compress Blu-ray movies?

    Normally, the resulting ripping process ranges from 45 minutes to 90 minutes, compression process ranges from 60 minutes to 150 minutes. That all depends on your computer configuration, the size of source blu-ray disc(bd50/bd25), the output target (bd25/bd5/bd9) you chose, compression involved or not, etc.

    If you have NVIDIA or ATI's graphics card, which will make possible hardware acceleration when ripping/compressing blu-ray discs. CUDA and DXVA technology will enable you rip/compress Blu-rays in a much faster speed.

    DVDFab integrated Intel Quick Sync technology in Blu-ray Copy make it a much faster video conversion. If you have DVDFab Beta (or later version)  installed on your computer, and you have supported hardware (Intel Sandy Bridge(SNB)CPU; Intel G45/GM45 Express Chipset; Intel HD Graphics) on your computer for Intel Quick Sync, then you can enable this high tech in DVDFab for a crazy fast conversion.

    DVDFab DVD Ripepr, Blu-ray Ripper and Blu-ray 3D Ripper can deal with Forced Subtitles. Users have the options whether or not to display the forced subtitles while converting. 

  4. How to change the aspect ratio for converted files?

    You can click on "Video Effect Settings" available at the main interface, then change the aspect ratio or customize the output size.

  5. Why don't the DVD Copy and DVD Ripper stick together like before as an all-in-one package?

    Please note that purchases of DVDFab Platinum made before May 8, 2008 included DVDFab "DVD to DVD" (now DVDFab DVD Copy) and DVDFab "DVD to Mobile" (now DVDFab DVD Ripper) together.
    The increasing costs of maintaining/improving product feature sets and exploring new products regrettably mean DVD Copy and DVD Ripper can not be available all in one package any more. Thanks for your understanding and continuous support.
