A couple of seconds later after loading Blu-ray, a list of all titles will be presented and main title will be selected automatically.
Step 2. Choose output profile.
Today's 8TB and larger SSD is getting cheaper. It's not worth converting files to more efficient and space-saving formats in case of backing up your movie library. This is because re-encoding Blu-ray takes time and involves loss of quality. In this situation, you can choose "Copy the entire disc" to make a full title copy or select "Directly Copy" from "Copy" category to backup the main title in 1:1 ratio. Also you can choose "Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV" from Multi-track Video category to backup Blu-ray to a lossless MKV file. This will keep the audio and image the same as original. And you can save Blu-ray library to your Mac hard drive for further use.
If you need to play the ripped Blu-ray movie on a mobile device, TV, or upload Blu-ray to Cloud storage, media server for easy access, you're recommended to select MP4, MOV, MKV or a device profile as the final output.
