Encoding The Perfect Release Part 1

I think sharing is caring in many aspects, and I am glad to share encoding knowledge with anyone who cares to ask about it show interest.

Let's go into a full frontal outline of where to begin with an encode.

When I state the term "encode", I do NOT mean Re-Encode. Re-Encoders are not something I would want to attach myself to and hope to explain the difference in the actual verb of encoding.

When you are first looking for something to encode, you want to directly learn the differences in various sources. Retail DvD's or BluRays of course would be the best possible source, but can also be the most hassle and costly if you plan to purchase them from retail, decrypt, and then encode.

I would suggest however that if you can find an "uncompresses" DVD9 or DVD5, that these are your two best possible sources. It's going to be rare, but there are certain private trackers dedicated to just these types of releases. Its less likely you'll find them publicly, because an uncompressed DVD5 can range from 4-6GB in size, and an uncompressed DVD9 would typically be the 4-10GB release. Sometimes more but most of the time, they'll be within this range.

There are also "Scene" DVD-R's. These are (regardless of wtf the scene group says in their nfo) basically chopped up DVDs. Even if they says "UNTOUCHED", its not possible for it to be "untouched" because the "Scene" is forced by scene rules, to remove the Special Features, or extra parts of the film. Although they will come with menus usually, it consists of the Menus, and the main film nine times out of ten. They then compress the DVD-R, to fit on a single DVD.

This is something that you'll see very often, in order to fit on a 4.7GB sized DVD-R, they have to compress them. So most "Scene" DVD-R's will be in this size range. I would suggest that these DVD-R's are grainy, "shadowy" or "blocky", and at times need a bit of work in order to be encoded into a perfect rip.

This all can be manipulated to your advantage if you just direct the time and effort into a bit of dedication and test out different results until you see what you're going to want to go with. Some scene groups, just flat out do crappy releases. This is something to expect often from the scene, because in the spirit of speed and competition they have to be first, they have to put the sources out there, before the other groups, in a manner of timeliness and order.

So you're still looking for a source eh? Well once you find one, you're going to presumably have an .iso or .img file of the "Scene" DVD-R if you chose to go that route. If you do have an .img file, it's very easy to reconfigure the extension for what I plan to instruct you to do. Simply make sure you have "show file extensions enabled" depending on which OS you use, and then rename the .img to .iso , and you'll be where you need to be.

Next you're going to use a virtual mounting tool, such as UltraISO, Daemon Tools, etc, to mount the image/iso to a virtual drive. Like I said, using the method we will be using, we will use .iso extensions, and we will also use the app UltraISO. I find it the most simple to explain to beginners, and the easiest interface of all.

Download UltraISO, free trial, full version, doesn't even matter. Any will do for what we're using it for. You'll first install UltraISO, then when it's finished, simply close the program. After installing the app, it will add a new context menu to the "right click" function. If you highlight and right click an .iso file from now on for example, and you'll see a new context menu that says "UltraISO-->" and you can select new options, but what we will choose, is to "Mount" the .iso to a virtual drive, being "D:" or "J:" or "G:" or whatever it will be based upon how many internal/external drives you have connected.

After you mount the .iso, we're ready to move on to the next step, which is ripping the DvD. To "Rip" a DVD is not hard, nor is it complicated. Although there are many different features depending on what software you decide to use to "rip" this DVD-R, I'm going to recommend to each of you to use DvD Shrink.

Shrink is a great app, and it's ultra handy. Now, you'll need to download DvD Shrink, again full or trial version, doesn't matter. Download and install DvD Shrink. Upon completion of installation, I need you to go up top to the "Edit" tab, then go to "Preferences". Go to the "Output Files" tab, and check ever box EXCEPT split the files into 1GB silze file chunks, we need to make sure that box is left UNCHECKED. Now click OK out of it.

Back at the main DvD Shrink menu you'll see the "Open Disc" Function on the top left side of the toolbar. Click "Open Disc", and find the drive for the .iso which you mounted. After you click it, it will begin to read your .iso file, and pull the video and audio sequences unto the custom DvD directly into the built in implementation menu on DvD Shrink.

This concludes part one of the tutorial. Part two will be continued on a later date when time permits me to do so.

Holy shit f**k! And this is just part 1! I posted a question in Chit Chat asking this very question, "What exactly is encoding" and this is the very answer i was hoping for. I didn't want to ask someone what it was step by step because i didn't want to get jumped on for not reading the tutorials, i have tried to read up on it but when you know jack sh*t about it some of the terminology used in the "explainations" doesn't really do anything to clear things up. I wanted to know what encoding entailed out of curiosity and respect. Respect for the encoders and what they have to do to bring the movies we end up watching for free. I can't believe the amount of work that goes into it. I'll probably have to read Part 1 another 10 times before i even start absorbing the information, but hey here's my answer at last. Can't wait for Part 2 to see the next phase. Thanks OBS i really appreciate this post but i can't say thanks for making my brain feel like it's about to crap out from information overload!

How do you obtain the source file to begin with?

If you read xxxOBSCENExxx's OP it's all covered in there.

If you're still confused here's a couple of ideas... Buy, borrow or rent a dvd or look for an untouched torrent in the 4-9gb range. As I said before it's all covered in the opening post!
