I’ve been thinking of making a fan edit of a show, and I was curious how I would go about using actual ripped video and audio from a Blu-ray. I used to make some pretty poor quality fan edits of movies I like when I was like 15 using YIFY rips in Sony Vegas. What I’m thinking of doing now is a lot more serious of a attempt to really fix a pretty poor adaptation and there’s a bunch of visual edits I need to make for that. So I need some advice on what programs I should use for ripping the Blu-Rays and actually making the edit. I own Sony Vegas, but I’m not sure how good it is for this purpose. I’m all ears for any advice you guys have.
If you’re ripping from disc, you can currently use MakeMKV. Specifically MakeMKV Beta.
It’s been in beta for ages, and the website has a registry code to “Validate” it. I’m not sure when that ends.
From there, what I do is take the MKV file I’ve ripped, and I run it through Handbrake to turn it into an MP4.
I hope this helps. These are the tools I’ve been using for a few years now, without issue.
