Features of DVD Cloner for Mac
DVD cloner for Mac is a powerful program that is also surprisingly easy to use. The wizard-interface guides you through the 5 step process. First thing is choosing the source and project, for example copying a DVD movie to DVDR or two DVD movies to a DVDR DL, or burning a hard disk movie to DVDR. The second step is to choose the copy mode. DVD-9 to DVD-5, DVD-9 to DVD-9, DVD-9 to 2 DVD-5s, movie only copy or custom copy. Then you just confirm the copy configuration and allow the software to read, rip, trans code and burn the DVD. If you are not sure what all these terms refer to have no fear because you don’t need a PHD to copy a disc. For best results just input your disc and choose the Movie Only copy option. This will copy the movie only from the original and keep the best quality.
One of the best features in DVD Cloner for Mac is something you will never see or have to configure, this is the error correction function. Basically some DVD movies have garbage code encoded on the disc to prevent copying, the automatic error correction in the software will bypass this for you without having to intervene with the process. Also, if your original DVD is somewhat scuffed up this program will fix it automatically. This is an excellent feature for anyone who is backing up their DVD movies. This program will also allow you to make copies of your home videos or other movies that are in a file on your computer. This allows you to share your home movies with friends and family through DVD player rather than a limited computer monitor.
Another feature this program possesses is the ability to create custom copies. This lets you select in detail what content will be on the disc. For example, you can keep a widescreen version of the movie and cut the full screen version, or you can lose the special features. A great thing about this feature is that as you cut the content, the compression required to burn lessens which will increase the quality.
This program will fit any compression needs you may have. Typically all movies that you buy or rent are larger than 4.7 GB in size so compression is a must. DVD Cloner for Mac can compress dual layer DVDs onto one blank. It is able to achieve this without a striking loss in quality. For the best quality and less compression use the movie only option, this will eliminate extra features and trailers.
Overall DVD Cloner for Mac has an immense amount of features to please advanced users while at the same time easy enough for a beginner to benefit from.
