    I have a BDRip, around 20GB in size....perhaps +1h:30m movie. I am trying to encode it but I am not sure about the latest available tools, codecs, and guides. Any suggestions of guides that might help me to get the best possible picture quality?

    thnx

    Encode to what, specifically? MKV? Some flavor of AVI? Another BD-R? Depends on where & how you want to view the "encoded" output.

    Use ripbot or mediacoder to make a h264 file in a mp4 or mkv container. Plenty of guides for both.

    Convert to ac3 5.1 and use a mp4 container to get the widest support across multiple devices. Mkv and dts audio will restrict you on some devices. Though mkv has much wider support now then even just a few years ago. But it's not universal yet.

    Probably obvious you don't have a BD-R writer as you could just burn a copy.
    Early on before I had a Blu-ray writer, I made some BD5/9 copies with BD-Rebuilder. With the highest quality settings, it looks damn fine and will play on most standalone Blu-ray players.
