  1. I want to rip a 1980's TV series from a 576p DVD boxset. It was shot on film with quite a bit of grain. Episodes run around 50m and are split into two .VOB files with a total up to 2GB per episode. There are about four episodes per 7,2GB DVD. I want to focus on a nice quality which keeps much of the grain and relatively small file sizes between 400 and 500MB. I have a 16GB Intel Core i5-8400 2,80GHz 64 bit Windows 10 with a 6GB 1660 TI. I'd like to keep encoding to at most 3 hours per episode.

    Is there (a guide with) a recommended setup of software, codec and settings for this particular type of content?

    Code:

  2. If it's recorded on film that that means it's sped up. Slow it down. Some programs can do that
