DVDFab 11 Main Functions

DVDFab 11 provides four main functions which are being described in detail below. The explanation of these functions will tell you why it is good to call DVDFab 11 an all in one DVD and Blu-ray suite.

1. DVDFab Copy

The copy function simply lets you copy a DVD or Blu-ray disc to another blank DVD or Blu-ray disc, ISO, or a folder. If you want to save a copy of your physical disc then ISO would be the best choice. The copy function has various sub-functions which are listed below.



Full Disc: Copy the entire DVD/BD to a new blank disc, ISO, or folder. This makes an exact replica of your physical disc.

Main Movie: The sub-function only selects the main movie from the disc and copies it to new blank disc, ISO, or a folder. You are allowed to select other main movie titles instead of keeping the one which is selected by default.

Customize: The customize sub-copy function lets you select multiple movie files on the disc. You can choose which movie titles to select and which to skip. After that, you can copy those movie files to a new blank disc, ISO, or a folder.

Split: The split function lets you split a DVD9 into two DVD5.

Merge: With the merge function, you can merge multiple DVDs and Blu-rays into a single disc. But both disc types can't be mixed.

Clone/Burn: If you want to make a 1:1 lossless copy of your DVD or BD then use this function to create a lossless ISO, folder or even burn the copied disc data to a new blank physical disc with the DVDFab burning engine.

ToDVD: If you want to copy and convert a Blu-ray to a DVD format then use this function. This function only supports normal Blu-ray discs, ISO, and folders and doesn't support UHD.

ToBlu-ray: If you want to copy and convert a DVD to a Blu-ray format then use this function to create a new disc, ISO, or a folder.

UHD to Blu-ray: UHD Blu-ray discs are actually 4K BD100 discs. They are known to deliver the ultimate 4K UHD experience on a 4K screen. These discs can't be played on normal BD players. But you can convert these UHD discs to standard Blu-ray format by using the UHD to Blu-ray sub-copy function. Here again, you are allowed to burn a blank BD or create an ISO or a folder.

2. DVDFab Ripper:

If you know what video converting is then you should also be aware of disc ripping. In video conversion, we use video files that are stored on any type of storage media like a disc, flash drive, hard drive, or external hard drive. But in ripping we only use a physical DVD/Blu-ray, ISO, or a folder. The ripper function converts the disc media to other popular video formats like MP4, AVI, FLV, MKV etc.

If you don't own a physical DVD or Blu-ray player in your home then you can use this DVDFab ripper function to actually convert your discs to popular video formats like MP4. MP4 format is highly portable and is mostly used for smartphones, TVs and media players. So if you manage to convert your disc media to MP4 format then you can play it on almost every device that you have like TV, smartphone, tablet, PC, STB, or media players.



Device Specific Disc Ripping  

DVDFab 11 also gives you an option to rip and convert your DVD or Blu-ray disc to a smartphone, tablet, and gaming consoles formats. This is known as device-specific disc ripping, which means that you're actually ripping your physical disc media that would be easily played on your smartphone or gaming console.

The device specific conversion features a lot of devices like the iOS devices, Samsung smartphones, gaming consoles like PS4, PS3, XBOX One, XBOX 360, VR headsets and many more. You just have to select the device and DVDFab 11 will automatically load the best ripping and conversion settings for your device. However, you are allowed to customize the settings before you can start to rip the disc.

3. DVDFab Converter

DVDFab converter function is exactly the same as DVDFab ripper function. The only difference is that in converter function you can use any type of video format instead of just using the DVD and Blu-ray formats. The converter function can easily convert any video format to other video formats. So it is quite possible to convert an MP4 video to an MKV video.

You just simply have to select the video and then have to select your favorite output video format. You are also allowed to customize video settings like resolution, quality, audio, bit-rate etc. This converter function also supports device-specific conversion a feature which we have already explained above. The ripper and the converter functions are nearly the same.

4. DVDFab Creator

The creator function gives you the authority to create your own DVDs, Blu-rays, and UHDs. Simply select your own videos in any format and head over to the creator function. Select either DVD, Blu-ray, or UHD that you want to create. The program also lets you create disc menus and you can also select disc configuration.



Common Options to Customize

If you are using the copy, ripper, or converter function then there are some common options that you can customize. These common options are 'Chapter select', 'Audio select', 'Subtitle select' and 'Video settings'. A DVD or a Blu-ray disc has multiple chapters and you can select or specific chapters while skipping the rest while using any of the three main DVDFab functions.

Many DVDs and Blu-ray discs feature multiple audio streams or languages that you can select while playing them on your player. While using any of the three main DVDFab functions you can select multiple audio streams and skip those unwanted audio streams to speed up the copy, rip, or convert functions. And lastly, you can also select subtitles while using any of the three main DVDFab functions. These three options will be present in all these three main functions.



DVDFab Inbuilt Video Editor

You can use the DVDFab video editor while using the ripper and the converter function. The DVDFab video editor is a set of video editing tools that can be used to edit any movie or video while ripping or converting process. The video editor provides tools like trim, crop, thumbnail, image and text watermark, and adding subtitles. The new video editor in DVDFab 11 is not as great as it was in DVDFab 10 which was easy and straightforward. You can check images from both versions. However, I believe that upcoming updates will surely gonna fix this.
