Sefy's Complete DVD Backup Guide v2.6
Using - TMPGEnc XPress - Wizard (v3.0 +)

In the Latest version of TMPGEnc there has been many new features added to ease up the usage for Newbie's, One of the new ones is to have a direct access to your DVD Movie and a very enhanced yet simple to use both Manual and Wizard modes. This part of the guide will cover the new Wizard mode.

NOTE: It does NOT support copying of Protected DVD movies, you need to use a ripping program using "Backup/Full" method first.

Step 1(a/b/c) - Click on "Start new project" or "Set Source" then click on "Source Wizard" and now you can import from a file or  directly "Add a source from a DVD-Video" option. For this example i've decided to access the DVD movie directly.

Step 2(a/b) - After the DVD Movie was accessed, you will get the "Title list" to choose, you can select all or just the main movie. Mark the part(s) you want to encode and click on "Next..." to continue. Now you have two options which I find very useful, the first is to import the "Chapters" information as Key Frames, which makes editing more movie accurate. Secondly is to copy the selected Title to the HDD so you will not strain the DVD Drive during the encoding or editing.

NOTE: TMPGEnc does not support Decoding/Encoding of AC3 Audio Tracks! You must have the AC3 Plugin Installed!

Step 3(a/b/c) - After the movie was succesfully copies, you can set the "Aspect ratio" under the "Clip info" tab. Then under the "Cut-edit" you can select the "Start Frame" and "End Frame" if you want to encode just a section of your movie. You can use the "Key frame list" to navigate through the clip and set the markers according to the original DVD chapters. Under the "Filter" tab you can enhance your movie quality.

Step 4(a/b/c/d) - Click on the "Set Output" to select the type of Encoding you would like to do and click on "Select" to continue. Under then "Video" tab you can choose the "Motion search precision" quality you want (the higher quality, the slower to encode!). Under the "Audio" tab you can select "Channel mode" for the audio.

Step 5(a/b) - Now click on the "Encode" option and select the "Output path" and filename of your movie, if you used "Source range" then I suggest you use different names for each part you encode. Click on "Start Encode" to begin the encoding process.

Step 6(a/b/c/d) - Once you are done encoding the first part of your movie, click on "Set Source" again, and then on "Edit" on your movie. Use the "Cut-edit" to select the Start and End frames for the second part of the movie. Then click on "Set Output" and select the Encoding type and finally click on "Encode" to bring processing the second part of the movie.
