Gallery: Miraizon Cinematize 2 Pro for DVD Extraction

DVD was originally designed as a write-only delivery format, with the video and audio and menus all glommed together into obscure VIDEO_TS folders and humongous VOB files. But these days DVDs are just another video format, and many video editing and DVD authoring tools can easily crack open an (unprotected) disc and extract chunks of content.

But if you mess with DVDs a lot, or want more precise control over the exact segments that you extract, or need to extract to specific formats in the full original quality, then check out Miraizon Cinematize -- a dedicated tool for DVD clip extraction and conversion.

Cinematize is available for both Windows and Macintosh, and is now up to version 2, in two editions:

- The base Cinematize 2 extracts DVD video and audio to QuickTime codec, which can then be imported by common video tools for editing, download to portable devices, or uploading for Web sharing ($69 box / $59 download).

- Cinematize 2 Pro, announced this month, adds advanced features including menu and subtitle extraction, batch extraction, multi-channel audio extraction, and custom QuickTime compression options ($149 box / $129 download).

See my Video Editing Software Gallery under Video Processing Software for details on these and related products.
