Simplest way from DVD -> DIVX file?

Yes its all legal. I have some DVD's I want to convert into Divx files (specifically a wedding dvd, not that its important ).

I know there are about 100 different ways of doing this, but I was wondering if there was a one-stop solution for it that would rip the DVD, encode an AVI file with XVID or DIVX codec of the main VOB file etc?

Kind of like DVDshrink is a one-stop backup solution, but that one doesnt 'export' to an AVI file as far as I can see.

I'll consider commercial and free software alike.. I just dont want to spend a day learning the ins and outs of it.. Insert DVD, select movie file, export to AVI or something like that is what im looking for.

You should also check out Dr. Divx which is commercial and AutoGK which is freeware.

Second Dr. Divx or AutoGK.
Dr.Divx is a little easier to use, but AutoGK can encode into Xvid which I now prefer over Divx.
