dvd2avi

i would like to extract a small clip from a dvd movie. I've been using dvd2avi first to save it as a .d2v projec. I then use tempgenc to extract the clip into mpeg2. My question is - do i loose quality during the dvd2avi conversion? I noticed that when i convert to a .d2v project, the files are much smaller than the original movie.

If so, is there a way of doing this without loosing quality?

I suppose we can keep this thread open as long as we're not discussing ripping, copying copyrighted materials and otherwise violating the DMCA.

Yes. It's rather easy. After you cropped the clip you want w/ DVD2AVI, open the project w/ VirtualDub and look for the lossless compression filter. It's been a very long time since I used DVD2AVI and VDub, so I don't remember the exact name of the filter.
