While not exactly being the fastest encoder this is definitely the most versatile and full-featured encoder ever built. It has many facilities which other encoders do not have, among others powerful IVTC and various other video and audio processing options.
Step 1: Ripping
DVD2AVI requires that the VOBs have been prepared, e.g. do not contain additional studio logos, FBI warnings and such so SmartRipper is the ideal choice since it does IFO parsing.
Step 2: Create a DVD2AVI project
Step 3: Audio decoding
In order to get a direct AC3 to MP3 conversion in the highest possible quality using both azid and lame you can use either BeSweet or HeadAC3he.
Step 4: IVTC (if needed)
This step allows us to encode at the more space economic 23.976fps instead of the regular 29.97fps NTSC.
Step 5: Calculating bitrate
Step 6: Subtitles (optional)
6a) create pseudo AVI
6b) Add subtitles
Step 7: Encoding
Step 8: Splitting to CDs
8b) Remux & Split
Step 9: Burn
