At work today I had need to convert a DVD to Windows Media and Quicktime formats, and trim the video by about a minute (out of a 9 minute DVD). After looking at the options one seemed like it'd be the best choice - Pinnacle Studio Plus 10, which is easy to use, can output a whole bunch of formats and apparently import existing DVD content (provided the DVD is not encrypted, i.e. something you make yourself). I've used older versions in the past, this new one adds on support for high definition video formats (not an issue for me) and chroma-key effects (not needed, but could be fun), along with some general user interface improvements. I'll let you know how it goes.
