Default Nero Recode Or Dvd Shrink

Which of these two produce the best results?

Nero Recode may produce slightly better quality output, but it won't be much. The difference you will see is in the speed...Recode is somewhat faster in encoding than DVD Shrink. The only drawback is that DVD Shrink is free, where Recode is not. Either way, my vote goes to Recode.

DVD Shrink is better to hit the target size in compilation mode. Recode very often gets to big or smaller than the wanted output size. Especially if you use the merge function in Recode.

My vote is for recode2, but don't pay for it just yet because shrink, although slower, does produces similar output as recode2. In any case, these two represent the best transcoders in term of quality output.

recode doesn't offer an interface to aec does it, to even turn it off?

this would be shrink's main advantage

shrink for less compression and aec off and especially if working straight from the dvd drive

recode for more compression working from decrypted files

right?

You can get Nero recode for free, I assume it does the same as the main Nero programme but without all the other bits of the main suite.

I'm not familiar with the free version...only the one that accompanies the suite. I would definately give it a shot though, all you are losing is time if that is the case.

What could I do to make it better? I'm not being snarky, that's a serious question.
