Hi. Sorry if this has already been asked or if it sounds n00bish. But I have 2 questions...
1) I want to know if there is a way/program that allows you to directly rip hardcoded subs onto a .divx/avi file from the DVD .vob files. All the guides out there tells you how to add (permanent) subs on videos---that means you first have to rip the video from the DVD, then rip the subs separately, and go through the whole hassle of rejoining them again. Why would I want to do that if I have the original DVD and just want a video w/ subs? Plus, when I go through the trouble of ripping the video to attain the very best quality, it often distorts the quality when I remux the subs.
Also, I've tried a couple of programs from WinAVI, Xilisoft Video Converter 3, Xilisoft Platinum DVD Ripper, Nero 8, VirtualDubMod, AviRecomp, Dr. DivX, DivX Converter, DivX Author 1.5 --- these are about all the programs I tried. Anyway, they never achieve the result I wanted---either the quality is reduced, or you get a .divx file with soft-subs (you can turn them on/off in DivX Player). Actually, the soft-subs I got from the DivX programs were so terrible that when i turned them on, whenever there was subs, the screen would go blank---it would show a rectangular grey screen w/ subs on the bottom, the grey screen would overlap/cover part (majority) of the picture so you don't see anything. (The video would return to normal when there aren't any subs.) I'm not sure what's causing that.
2) I want to know if there is a way to do this when I have a DVD with multiple-language subs to have all the subs showing simultaneously (hardcoded) without overlapping.
I'm looking for the most efficient to do this while maintaining the very best visual quality.

1. AutoGK usually creates problems with subs if you try to use the internal subtitle, that is step 2.
Instead rip the subtitle separetaly first, and then when coding the movie from DVD to avi with AutoGK, press Ctrl+F8 and insert the sub externaly. Then you don't have to code the movie twice.
2. Have no idea. With AutoGK I know for a fact it is not possible, because if you want mutliple language on at the screen at the same time you should move one up so they don't put on each other. I know that you can with for instance VobSub determine the position of the subs, but how to use that with AutoGK I don't know.
