  3. Mercury will then begin the ripping process automatically. You will see a single progress bar.
  4. The Review screen will automatically appear when the DVD has finished loading.

Scene detection can NOT be turned off in Hudl Mercury.

Your DVD will already be cut into clips.

You can merge, delete, and split the clips using the buttons at the top of the screen. For more information on reviewing and editing clips, see the Edit and Review Video in Hudl Mercury tutorial.
