This tutorial will explain how you can use DVD-Ranger to copy a Blu-ray 3D movie to a mobile format. DVD-Ranger will copy one 2D channel of your 3D Movie to a common video file or AVCHD disk.

Step 1: Source Disk
Insert the Blu-ray 3D into your drive
Step 2: Selecting your Source
To rip and convert a Blu-ray 3D, make sure that a mobile project tab (“TV” or other) is selected (1a). If “BD/DVD Player” is selected, DVD-Ranger will open a special dialog.
Select the source location of your Blu-ray 3D disc by using “Select your Source” (1b). You can choose from an ISO file, your hard disc, or a removable storage device.
Step 3: Disc Analysis
DVD-Ranger will automatically begin analysis of the Blu-ray disc. Once this process is completed, the window will close. You can interrupt this process by clicking “Cancel” (2) if DVD-Ranger will not complete the task.
Step 4: Selecting the Target
There are various target tabs that you can choose from, each containing preset profiles (3). For our purposes in this tutorial, we have selected the TV option. As our target device, we have chosen “DVD to Xvid” (4). We can click on the profile listing (5) to select “Plus HD – 640 LQ h264/768kbps AAC/128kbps”.
Note: You can check the selected source in the status bar (6). In this case, we have chosen a “Blu-ray” source.
Step 5: Selecting the specifics
When rendering to a mobile format, you have the ability to choose one title (7), one language (8), and one subtitle (9). The internal player (10) allows you to preview the title, and because the player can play HD movies, you will not experience any stuttering. To see the full-screen view, simply double-click the player.
Step 6: Configuring the profile
Profiles can be amended to suit your specific needs. Simply click “Configure” (11) to open the “Configure Profile” queue. Once this is opened, you can make your changes and click “OK” to accept them (12). If you would like to leave the menu without accepting the changes, click “Cancel” (13).
Note: You can save any edited profiles by clicking “Save” (14). To access them in the future, use the “Custom Tab” (15).
Hint: To alter the ‘Zoom’ of the target video, see “Using Zoom Function” tutorial.
Step 7: Starting the Copy Process
DVD-Ranger will suggest a file name and path for your project (16). You can alter these by clicking the “…” button (17). You can save the entire copying process by pressing the “Start” button (18).
Step 8: Copying to Mobile
DVD-Ranger will not automatically start the copying process (19). To interrupt, simply click “Cancel” (21). In certain configurations, the bitrate meter (20) will be disabled.
Step 9: Completion Message
Once the copying process has concluded, DVD-Ranger will notify you with a message.
