Complete Guide For Creating 1 and 2 CD DVD Rips using MeGUI
This might seem to be a long process, but once practiced, its a piece of cake
Dedicated to all the new ones who want to become genuine rippers
1. Necessary Codecs and software required and its download links .
.net framework 2.0
1.Megui needs Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 to work properly..
Ohterwise Program will show following error:
-Application Error - The application failed to initialize properly
(0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application.
2.MOST IMPORTANT THING IN RIPPING is K-Lite Mega Codec Pack
3. Avisynth (Second Most IMP thing)
4.Nero Audio Codec: (Mainly needed for re-encoding purpose)
5. MAIN PROGRAM MeGUI
Download it and extract in any specific folder . No need to find update anywhere It will automatically notify you when update is available
(You must have internet connection to update.)
6. x264.exe version: (Optional program cause it is already in megui directory if u want latest version then only download it from following site)
Make sure you download the proper version for your Windows (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7) check if
it's x86 (32bit) or 64bit.
Note :- All Programs Must be downloaded and installed before start ripping.
Start Megui -
Click Tools | D2V Creator
The DGIndex Project creator will open. Click the Video Input box.
Then choose the first .VOB file of the main movie. For me this file is VTS_02_1.VOB. The whole movie is actually contained in VTS_03_1.VOB, VTS_03_2.VOB, VTS_03_3.VOB and VTS_03_4.VOB. Just select the first and MeGui will add the rest of the files.
NOTE : Do NOT choose VTS_01_0.vob – most of the time it contains only Ads and other junk, choose the first .VOB file that is 0.99GB. The rest of the movie .VOB files of the movie are added automatically.
1. Select “Demux all Audio Tracks”
2. Check the box “and close”
3. Click “Queue”
1. Click the Queue tab to see the Queue Screen
2. Click Start.
DGIndex will start in the background and the MeGui Log Window will open.
When the Job has finished, Click the CLEAR button to clear the job queue.
The .d2v file will be created.
The audio files will be demuxed.
In the default folder I;e in which your dvd is placed
Click Tools | Avisynth Script Creator
The AviSynth script creator window will open. Click the Video Input box.
Select the newly created .d2v file. Then click OPEN.
The following screens will open - The main window -
and the preview window -
On the Main window –
1. check the box that says “CROP”
2. and click “AUTO CROP”
3. check the box that says “Suggest Resolution”
As you can see in the below image, the AUTO CROP is not perfect – it has left black lines on the top and the bottom.
Move the slider to a light point in the movie to make out the black lines more clearly
Adjust the crop using the adjustment section on the main AviSynth script creator window as shown below
The adjusted crop eliminates the black borders completely. This will improve compression and the resulting quality of the rip will be better.
1.Then click on the “FILTERS” tab on the top.
2. Click the “Analyse...” button and let the analysis run.
3.Megui will analyse the video and recommend a Deinterlace method, if necessary. My movie is shown to be a “Progressive”, so no De-interlacing needs to be done.
If de-interlacing is needed, then an appropriate de-interlacing method will be suggested.
Then Click “Save” and save the AVS file ...
^^(old megui version screenshot ,sorry i forgot to take new ss of this step today. but dont worry it won't make any diff.)
1. Select the Resize filter – Lanczos4 (Sharp) is good
2. Select the noise filter depending on the movie (if grainy like old movies use a medium or heavy noise filter) – I am using Little Noise
3. Check the box for “Mpeg2 Deblocking” (optional)
4. Check the box for “Colour Correction” (optional)
5. Click the “Preview AVS Script” button to see what your AVS output will look like.
Click the “EDIT” Tab to see what the AVS script looks like.
Then Click “Save” and save the AVS file ...
The.avs file is automatically loaded and a preview window will open. Close the preview window.
1. I have chosen Video profile = Xvid
2. Then click the “Config” box
Make the Following changes in the Video config
1. Uncheck “Adaptive Quantization”.
2. Set Quantization Type to “MPEG” (you can also use H.263 – video will be a little softer)
3. Click “NEW” to save this profile.
Save the profile for easy use in the future.
IMPORTANT NOTES :
This Xvid Profile is good for 1-2CD rips. (Should also be compatible with most standalone Divx DVD players)
I like to use CBR MP3 audio – it does not cause Audio-Video Sync problems most of the time.
With CBR audio, AV sync issues are easy to fix.
I chose 128kbps MP3 audio for this rip since it is a small movie (105 mintes)
For 1CD rip, decrease the bitrate if your movie is longer (110-140minutes, use 96kbps ABR audio)
If the movie is longer than 140 minutes, do a 2CD rip and use 128kbps MP3 audio.
On the main MeGui screen,
1. Set the Audio Profile to “MP3-128ABR”
2. Click the “Config” button
1.Change the Encoding Mode to “CBR”
2. Set the Bitrate to 128 kbps (See Important Notes below)
3. Click “NEW” so save this profile.
Save your Profile so that you can use it for future rips.
Click OK twice to go back to the MeGui main window.
Open the Audio Input file
(3rd box highlighted)
Choose the Input Audio File (there may be a few – you remember that we demuxed all the audio tracks). I am using the 3_2channel AC3
(5.1 surround sound) audio file.
Then click OPEN.
Then Click on Tools | Bitrate Calculator
In the Bitrate Calculator, set the following-
1. Codec = Xvid
2. Container = AVI
3. Storage Medium = 1 CD
4. Then Click APPLY. (Do NOT FORGET to hit Apply)
( it is an old megui version screen shot .. sorry I forgot to take ss at the time of encoding with latest one don’t worry it wont make any confusions J )
NOTE : Try and keep the Average Video Bitrate over 500. If the bitrate calculator shows a bitrate less than 500, then go back to the Audio Config step and reduce the Audio Bitrate.
Then come back to the Bitrate Calculator and check the Average Bitrate again.
If it is still less than 500, please do a 2CD rip (select Storage Medium as 2 CD before hitting APPLY)
Then Enqueue the Video Job and the Audio Job.
Click on the QUEUE tab, check to make sure both audio and video jobs are present and START the jobs
The status window will open to show you the status of the Jobs
A few hours later the jobs will be complete and there will be a Video AVI file and a Audio MP3 file. Now we need to mux them together.
After few hours (note time depends on how much good quality rip youwant):
Now your riping job has been finished now you have to “MUX” audio & video file altogether .
1-go to tools >>Muxer>> AVI muxer (incase if you have chosen avi container )
A window will appear as shown in the fig. below . give proper destination to video input then audio input & final & 3rd step hit the queue tab .
Audio & video muxing has been started :
After muxing your riping has been completed cheers :
The default name of ur rip would b something like vts_**_ muxed.avi
Here is the result of this rip
Looking forward for rips from Uyirvanians
