Blue Cloner and DVDFab Blu-ray Copy are software suites that can copy or create 1:1 perfect clones of DVD or Blu-ray Discs. In this article, we will introduce these two software tools, then we will compare them so that you can choose the one that is most suitable for you. If both of them cannot meet your needs, we will also recommend a cheaper alternative for you.
Part 1: Brief introduction of Blue Cloner 2020 and DVDFab Blu-ray Copy
DVDFab Blu-ray Copy is essentially a Blu-ray cloning software (which is also downward compatible with DVD discs), and its features are copying, burning and cloning any Blu-ray or DVD disc which also includes 3D to your hard drive. This software supports Blu-ray Discs like BD-R 25, BD-RE 25, BD-R 50 and BD-RE 50, and DVD discs like DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/DL and DVD-R/DL. A very interesting feature of this software is its ability to copy Blu-ray Disc content, and burning some of the content onto a DVD disc if the storage space permits it. When a user does that, the DVD disc can only be played by a Blu-ray player.
Aside from copying Blu-rays (discs/ISO files/folders) to blank discs, it also allows users to copy Blu-rays as ISO files or folders that can be saved on the hard drive. Some of its copy modes include Full Disc, Main Movie, Customize and Merge. The Merge mode essentially allows users to merge the content of two or more discs into a single disc. It has hardware (GPU) acceleration to make copying or cloning content much faster. It features a very clean and modern interface, which is arguably one of the best designs for software in its category.
It is also quite easy to use, with a built-in preview window and multiple language support. It supports Windows 7 and above, as well as macOS 10.10 and above. You can get a 30 day trial for the full version, which will cost $64.99 or a free version that has the very basic features, albeit it lacks the more advanced and useful features like decryption.
Blue Cloner 2020 is another top-rated Blu-ray copy, backup, burn, and decryption software much like DVDFab Blu-ray Copy. It enables users to copy Blu-ray Disc content onto a blank writable Blu-ray Disc, or save the content onto their hard drives in the form of ISO files or folders. It is also downward compatible with DVD and AVCHD discs. It has two interfaces, which are named Express and Expert. With the express interface, novice users can easily navigate through the software, and the Expert interface is perfect for professional users who wish to take full advantage of this software. For the copy modes, Blue-Cloner 2020 includes the Perfect 1:1 Blu-ray copy, Movie Complete copy, Movie-only copy, Split copy and Customized copy.
If you wish to compress your videos or movies, this software can compress the main movie content, as long as its in the MPEG-2 or BD-R/ RE formats to H.264 1080p. It incorporates a Blu-ray playing software, which should enable you to preview the movie content before users proceed to copy or clone the disc content. Besides cloning or copying discs, users also have the ability to save DVD or Blu-ray Disc content onto their hard drives in the form of ISO files and DVD or Blu-ray folders. It is built with decryption technologies, which should remove all AACS, BD+, MKB, and UOP copy protections which are found on movie discs. All three regions (A, B and C) are fully supported.
Users can split a Blu-ray movie (50G) to two writable BD-Rs (25G). For DVD discs, users also have the freedom to choose the PAL or NTSC encoding formats. This software is available today for Windows XP and above, but unfortunately, it is not available for macOS. Unlike DVDFab Blu-ray Copy, there is no 30-day trial available for this software and you can only get a demo version. If you want the full version of the software, it will cost $59.99.
