A rip-off by definition. Use HandBrake instead of this phoney prg!! As you know, Ripit installs an unaccessible version of HandBrake on your system and acts a cutsey front end GUI for HandBrake. Why?? HandBrake is FREE & easy to use GUI and, unlike Ripit, has never failed me. HB works on any file format whereas Ripit can only work on physical DVDs. Download your own version of HB (and VLC too) and you will never look back. Both are FREE and well supported prgs. HB works right off the bat with the standard presets plus offers many options. Like accessing embedded audio tracks (commentaries, etc)- try doing *that* on Ripit.

True, Ripit only uses HB for compressing into mp4 or mkv, but who doesn't want to do such in most cases anyway? The lifestyle that Ripit developers sell you still retains the archaic video_ts format. Reducing all videos to single files which are easily playable on media players, as well as computers, is the best way to go. But being essentially useless due to lockups that don't even respond to FORCE QUIT attempts (necessitating REBOOTing) this prg belongs on the scrapheap. Yet HB on both Macs works 100% after hundreds of uses. "(this prg did 3 dvds for me just fine- I give it 5 stars)" LOL, see how you feel in a couple months. Users unwilling to invest the slight effort setting up (the real) HB deserve what they get.

The first thing any 'photo' prg should offer is a 'quad printing option' where you drag-n-drop 4 pix (all similar, from same camera lets say) onto the prg icon and it will 'quad' them into four 4x5 that fill an 8x10 sheet for your color laser to print.
Margin (an 1/8in wide X) for your paper cutter would be automatically provided between the 4x5s.

This quad option would be a permanent choice that you could always click back to regardless of whatever else you were doing with the program.

You want to see color test prints but don't want to waste paper & toner. Why this is not a no-brainer is beyond me.
