Steps to Rip 4K Blu-ray Dolby TrueHD/DTS-HD Master Audio
Step 1. Load 4K Blu-ray
Download, install and run Pavtube ByteCopy, and click the “Load from Disc”icon to import movie files from 4K Blu-ray Disc. To load BDMV folder, choose “Load from folder” from the dropdown list of “File”. To rip movie from Blu-ray ISO image, mount the ISO with virtual drive first and then choose “Load from ISO/IFO”. The main title contains main movie and is checked by default.
Step 2: Choose lossless MKV to output
To rip 4k Blu-ray to lossless MKV keeping DTS-HD MA audio and Dolby TrueHD audio, select "Multi-track Video" > "Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV(*.mkv)", In this way you will get lossless audio streams without transcoding from original BD disc to MKV format.
Step 3. Check MKV codec and choose Blu-ray audio
Click "Settings" to open "Multi-task Settings" window, click "Audio" tab, check "Encode" to get encoded MKV files with Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master audio saved. But you should make sure that the original Blu-ray disc contains DTS and TrueHD audio, otherwise, you still can not get DTS and Dolby audio saved.
Check the “Encode” box under “Video”, set codec to H.264 or the original HEVC. Save settings and back to main interface. To rip 4K Blu-ray to 4K video, just keep Video Size to original. If you want to compress 4K Blu-ray to 1080p, then change the video size to “1920*1080”.
Step 4. Converting 4K Blu-ray with TrueHD/DTS-HD
When back to the main interface, click “Convert” button to start ripping 4k Blu-ray to MKV format. After conversion you can click “Open” to find converted MKV file(s).
When transcoding 4K Blu-ray to MKV with Pavtube ByteCopy using the above settings, Blu-ray video streams are converted from H.265/HEVC, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, SMPTE VC-1 to H.265 or H.264, while original Blu-ray HD audio streams (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, Dolby Digital, DTS, PCM, LPCM) are retained. So you have desired titles/chapters, audios, subtitles and desired video codec in an MKV file.
