Doesn't seem to work with David Bowie Ziggy Stardust DVD... Complains about being unable to open "the selected File Group".

Your David Bowie DVD must be encrypted. Unfortunately for legal reasons, our software doesn't include the capability to remove encryption.

Is there anything that performs the same functions with Blu-ray discs?

Yes. Miraizon just released Cinematize Pro HD, which performs the same functions with Blu-ray and AVCHD.

PROS:
* Very Fast, very capable converter. I would trust the reliability of its output over all others. Definitely something you could use in a Professional environment.
* Very Good Support (extremely rare these days)** They actually respond to email
* A MANUAL (a printed one is available) WOW!!
* Highly Configurable

CONS:
* Somewhat confusing interface: Even after years of [somewhat irregular] use I need to refer to manual.

* Missing Pre-done Presets (ex: “iPod HR”, “DV FullRes” ) These could act at least as a starting point. Further: Pre-done and user presets should be available via menu items (they currently exist as seperate files on disk). In a nutshell: product could seriously benefit by copying Handbrake’s approach.

* No support for Chapters in H.264
Developer explained this is because Apple doesn't "officially" support chapters. However: chapters have been functioning for years now. and, Given that one can’t rely on Apple to support anything longterm it seems a mute point. IMHO: include them with the caveat that this could mess with long term compatibility.

* Pricey: (Especially updates) Most will be surprised that I list this last. But, although CPro IS considerably pricier than similar options, I’m not sure it’s overpriced. You’re paying for a kind of professional quality and support that simply doesn’t come with shareware or even full fledged programs these days. Also, it’s written so solidly, it’s not really necessary to update with each OS iteration.

Cinematize 2 Pro didn't really need to be updated. It was that good. My guess is that version 3 will pretty awesome, but I think the upgrade price is a bit off-putting, especially because Cinematize 2 Pro is such a good product.

surely is a very good piece of soft..
only I just can't understand why for every update they make, the application has ALWAYS an awful incompatibility with all current installed components.. this time is for DivX Encoder.component and LAMEEncoder.component, wich if not taken off the quicktime folder make the application crash...
and since its not a components related problem, as i use them nornally, I wonder why they don't take a little more time to avoid this kind of annoying things to happen..
last time was the same but for the sheervideo.component, do you mind to make things a little bit more compatible in the future???
I would really appreciate it.

When Cinematize Pro is launched, it attempts to scan through all your QuickTime Movie Export components to make those available to you within the program. The problem is, Apple keeps making regular updates to QuickTime and some of these updates may break the various components you may have installed on your system. If you have a component installed that is incompatible with the QuickTime version you are running, it can crash any program that accesses that component including Cinematize Pro.

Because this is a compatibility issue between QuickTime and the various QuickTime components you have installed, you really have two choices to avoid the problem. The first is of course to stop installing updates to QuickTime. The second is to install updates to QuickTime, but each time you do this to also install updates to any QuickTime components you may have. By keeping both QuickTime and your installed components at the same level, you should be able to avoid any compatibility problems. If you have further comments or questions, please feel free to email us at support@miraizon.com so that we can assist you.

Cinematize Pro converts non protected DVDs to movie files. Encoding is realised through its own engine so it doesn't suffer the same synchronisation bugs currently present in the Quicktime engine. iPod m4v results surpass Quicktime itself.
