Create RipGuard compatible master with DVD-R

Because of the high level of protection RipGuard-MOD provides, not all Authoring programs create DVDs that are 'compliant' enough to be protected, and that is why DLT is the preferred master for this copy protection technology.

Every Authoring program is different, and Macrovision RipGuard adhers very closely to the DVD Forum specifications for quality control, but unfortunately not every Authoring application follows those strict guidelines, which can produce a disc that may play, but isn't quite 'compliant' enough to the standards to be protected.

We have verified that the following Authoring Applications produce DVDs that are compliant enough to the DVD Specifications and capable of being RipGuard Copy Protected without incident, provided there is NO Copy Protection enabled within the program at the time of authoring:

- DVD Studio Pro v3 and v4

- Adobe Encore v1, v2 & v3†

- PhotoDex ProShow Producer 3.0

- Scenarist (Daikin or Sonic)


- iDVD v5 and v6†

- Spruce Maestro

- DVDit

- Nero 8

- DVD Architect v2 (on Sony Vegas)

- DVD Architect v4.x (on Sony Vegas)†

- TMPGEnc DVD Author 3†

- Ulead DVD Moviefactory

- Pinnacle Studio†

- Pinnacle 11 Ultimate

- Pinnacle 8†

- Roxio Media Creator v10†

- Sonic Scenarist 3.2 † = DVDs produced with these programs have special requirements in order to be RipGuard compatible. Please contact us for the specific instructions on how to proceed before creating your final DVD.

Not Compatible: The following is a list of Authoring applications that are known NOT to produce DVDs which are compliant enough to the DVD Specifications to be copy protected:

- DVD Arabesk (all versions)

- Roxio Toast

- Windows Movie Maker

- AVID DVD Version 5.7

- Sonic Scenarist 3.1† † = Sonic Scenarist 3.1 must be upgraded to v3.2
