Well ARRSERs I hope the Christmas Spirit still abounds . .. especially amongst the software experts . I would like to use some free DVD ripping software to rip and then use about 10 mins of content as part of a Windows Live Movie Maker project . Further I wish to remove the existing sound track and replace . Then incorporate the edited Video with a series of photographs , from when the world was black and white , to complete the project . I have virtually completed the photograph element and superimposed a suitable sound track so to the key questions . 1 What truly free DVD ripping software is the most suitable ? 2 Will I be able to edit the ripped video or will that require more software ? 3 Will I be able to remove original sound and replace with new ? Finally any advice concerning potential pitfalls would be appreciated .
