I've been using MakeMKV for my Blu Ray rips, and I just now ran into a problem. I ripped the last Twilight movie (it's for the wife, really!) and it came out with a black box all the way around it. Not just letterboxing, mind you, but a full on black box.
First off, that Twilight Breaking Dawn - 2 has something like 100 fake playlists -- did you pick the right one?
If you have PassKey already stick with DVD Fab. I use the free version of DVD Fab to do full disk BluRay rips to my HDD then I use Clown_BD to extract the main_title.m2ts. I've never had a problem with the free version not ripping a title I wanted. Also, DVD Fab does a path-trace of the menu structure to find the right playlist when you want to do just a main title rip. In the case of Breaking Dawn - 2, DVD Fab nailed the correct playlist and actually grayed out all the fake ones -- just make sure you have English specified as the default language for audio and sub-titles.
In your case, try using DVD Fab free version to rip the title to your HDD as a full disk rip. Then use MakeMKV or whatever to extract the main title from the de-protected rip on the HDD.
P.S. -- I didn't rip it for the wife but for me. I think the movies are so bad that they are hilarious. Too bad the series is over. I can only hope that BollyWood does a remake -- can you imagine that? Dancing, sparkling vampires in brightly colored clothing -- it just can't get worse than that. I'm already laughing at the thought.Edited by Kelson - 3/20/13 at 6:22am
