Dvd Shrink Editor's ReviewDVD Shrink is a program which allows you to create backups of your favorite DVD movies in full size or compressed. The compression option can be set to automatic , custom (up to 50%), or still image/picture. The program will perform a disk analysis containing the decryption status, rate, frames/second. Then, backups can be stored on your hard drive.
You can also backup DVD and disk images (ISO, NRG, IMG, MDS format) to disk, as the program may use any burning software you have already installed. Before creating your backup, you can choose a DVD region code or you can select "Region Free" in order to make a disk which will play in all regions. The quality settings allow you to choose to perform a deep analysis for quality improvement or compress video with high quality and adaptive error compression. The backup process can be set to run in low priority mode and you can set the program to close your computer when done. You can also choose to re-author DVDs. 'VOB' files can be split into 1 GB chunks.
Pluses: The program went easy on the system resources, it used only a small amount of physical memory, but the CPU worked at 100% capacity. Still, I was able to run normally other programs such as media players, web browsers, office tools, firewalls without slowing down the operating speed.
Drawbacks / flaws:
In conclusion: A very good, compact, nicely designed and easy to use program. The output files showed good quality in conditions of a quick backup process.
