I had major issues with this software... I had 2.0.2 and even though it previewed in and out points just fine, in almost all cases (iDVD and DVD recorder discs) packaged in image files, it failed to actually pull the proper start and end points..; most of the time it grabbed less than 50% of the stream, not including either the start or end, but the file sizes were correct. This is odd as it didn't seem to have this problem with physical discs... which is silly, since you can use MacTheRipper for free to take anything off of physical DVDs (which I do for all the stuff that comes off my Sony DVD-Recorder).
I also find the interface for segment selection horribly busy, it seriously needs to make things simpler... it works, but is overly complex.

However, after demanding a refund on this, the regular version, since it wouldn't work right, they seemed to have corrected the non-physical disc issues quite nicely in the Pro version... it may be corrected in this version... 2.0.7, but since I moved up to the pro version (thanks dev!), I don't know.

after futzing around with various beta and 1.0 versions of software, and getting more and more frustrated, i finally DL'd the demo of this software, ran the app, watched the 10-second sample the demo allows - and promptly bought the app. its that good.

fer chrissake, you can even output to 4:2:2 uncompressed QT with full AIFF audio - yes, married together in one perfectly synced QT file. and then go out through QT 7 to format the baby for your iPod G5.

you can also output chapters as separate files, which is useful for iPod-destined programming.

thanks folks...

Yes this program is good, I've been using it for over a year and it has gotten me out of some painfull situations. Nothing else comes close to the ease of use and reliability of this app. Do yourself a favour and cough up the dollars because it's worth every penny.
And no I don't know or even care about the author of this program, but they have done a really good job.

I have an eMac and a Sony DVD camcorder. Can I use Cinematiz after buring the DVD so I can edit it in iMovie? Any help would be appreciated-I am so lost!

Yes, what you are proposing is exactly the problem that Cinematize was designed to solve. You should be able to take a "finalized" DVD from your camcorder and use Cinematize to extract whatever portion you like. You can save that portion out into file formats like QuickTime or DV Stream that will import smoothly into iMovie. You can try our free demo to see how the process works.

I've only used the 2.03 Demo, which is limited to 10 seconds of each chapter on the DVD....but it seems to work flawlessly. I tried one 10s chunk to H.264 and another to 3ivX. Both were great, audio sounded nice, totally in sync.

I encoded from an unencrypted DVD that I had copied to my hard drive. I didn't try doing it direct from a disc in my optical drive; that sounds like a great way to burn out my SuperDrive. I'd rather copy all the data to a HD and work on it from there.

I'm a little nervous to buy for two reasons: one, are their any sync issues? A 1% error in a 10s clip isn't noticeable, but in a 2hr movie it's ruinous. Two, are these people good free-software citizens? I noticed they use some free stuff, and I want to make sure anyone I'm supporting isn't stealing from the FOSS movement (that they're complying with the licenses, I mean).

Anyway, it seems like a GREAT piece of software. I've been waiting for four years now to have something like this for Mac, that would go from an unencrypted DVD to a Quicktime file, without separating the audio and video .... if this really is the thing, I'll gladly pay them what they're asking. I only hope it's what I think it is.

There is actually almost no open-source code in Cinematize. We put a lot of work in to develop our own video and audio decoders so that we could fine tune them for optimum performance.

While developing our AC-3 audio decoder, however, we did use the open-source "liba52" project as a reference. As a result of this, we give an acknowledgement in our "About" box and we contributed some code improvements to the liba52 project leader. We feel this qualifies us as, to use your words, "good free-software citizens".

Of course; the DVD needs to be ripped to strip off the copy protection.

Purchased version 2.0.1 yesterday after trying the demo. A great piece of software for quickly extracting clips from self-made DVD's and then editing them in either iMovie or Final Cut Pro. It did the job perfectly!!!
Also the support you get from Miraizon is superb, a five star rating.
If you are into home movies, use a dvd camera and want to edit them, I highly recommend this product.

I'm only using version 1.03, but it is a wonderful application that does its job very well and very fast! I have just imported a full DVD with 58 minutes of video into my iBook G4 in about 8 minutes... Great!
