Have some family films on DVD discs. New technics/softwares coming all the time.
There is a lot of options and solutions ppl suggest, depending on what outcome you want to have/achieve.
-What format would be the best option to save films for ev.future authoring/improving films quality?
-Or should they be improved in quality now and save them in any special looseless quality format?

Just copy the VIDEO_TS folders to your hard drive. That will give you an exact copy of what's on the DVDs.
Yes,but should I try to improve quality and put in any special format for future use?
Save them as an ISO file. Good for safe keeping.
As an example, when I started here, DivX and XVid were very popular, but now more people use H.264. Five years from now, H.264 may be considered outdated, having been replaced by H.265 or VP10.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord
Oki,thanks guys very much for all tips.
I think you need to clarify what you mean by "improving quality." Unless you have access to the raw camera footage those family-film DVDs came from, those DVDs are already the "best" quality you're going to get -- no magic "enhance" button is going to turn standard-definition 480i video with a 4:3 aspect ratio from a VHS or 8mm camcorder into pristine, high-definition 4K 16:9 widescreen, for example.
Ok. Those DVDs are right now originals if can say so. But f.e. Cyberlink can improve a bit of quality.To maybe render as mpeg2 and then to save as a ISO file.
Just a though.
