I'm using Scaleform for media presentation. I want to go from Blu-Ray to .avi to .usm* with the fewest number of compression steps (i.e. I don't want to compress something already compressed, and if I have to, I want the first compression on the rip to be as lossless as possible).
I cannot find a tool that will rip a Blu-Ray at 1080p without doing some form of compression on the rip (e.g. DivX, Xvid, msmpeg4, H.264, etc). I want to compress once, not twice.
* My understanding is that this is required -- the Scaleform video encoder wants to start with .avi and nothing else. But please correct me if I'm wrong.
And yes, I know I will end up with monstrously huge files when I do this. That's not really a deal-killer in this instance.
