As I wrote in my last LJ entry (HERE), I had offered to help my professor in softsubbing a video for him because he was using a powerpoint presentation to host the translations. Which is absolutely unheard of in the Arashi fandom as we use softsubs or hardsubs NG

I did grumble about it as I was timing it (since we all know "fun" timing can be) but once I finished doing the video and everything, I was very pleased with myself for helping out the professor and making it much easier for the students in class (especially for those who don't know Chinese at all) pencil

So when I e-mailed the professor with the softsubs, his reply was to me later was:


I spoke with him today and he said that I should log in my hours on how long I spend subtitling videos for him. At this point, I was honest and told him that it's very time consuming to do and that I didn't want to deplete his funds. In which he replied "But if I don't use it, I'll lose it. So I'd rather give it to you and pay you for your hard work than lose it." moneybag

He's also hosting the video that I subtitled for him at his weekly Friday screenings that he has at his house (it's a casual gathering among students and faculty members at his house). I must say, I'm very honored that he's doing that arrowup

I honestly never thought that my goodwill to my professor for subtitling a video for him would end up being shown in a public screening nor did I ever think that doing fansubbing as a personal interest of mine for the Arashi fandom would result in a paid research assistant position hearts

However, my current task at hand is to find a program that will allow me to rip a DVD in very high quality. For those who rip DVDs, can you tell me what program you use to do so?

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum?

Is it a relatively easy program to use? Because at the moment, I was using DVD Shrink, but the movie was cut into FIVE pieces when I tried to make it only one continuous file TT^TT
