This, IMO, is the best way to do it. Not all movies are the same and as such the methods to back them up shouldn't necessarily always be the same. The more I use DVD-RB Pro [with CCE] the more that I like it for DVDs that need to be really compressed. After seeing the difference between Recode and DVD-RB... it's like night and day, IMO. Sadly, I found one movie that DVD-RB refuses to nicely work on: Alien vs Predator [which is far from new]. At the beginning of the movie it gets into a loop showing the movie studio logo. It doesn't exist before running the movie through DVD-RB and no other software causes it to happen. I gave up and just used CloneDVD to compress it. A variety of tools is always a good thing.
