This program could handle a great number of BD/DVD sources and conversion possibilities for a good price-performance ratio. I really like it for the straight-forward, clean interface. Let alone the plenty of presets that can be customized as necessary.

Did a lot of research before zeroing in on Pavtube. This is an all in one package.

Moreover, Pavtube programs support adding *.srt and *.ass subtitles into video and merge into one file for output. 
The bad: It lets you trim a specific duration from a movie, but not allows you to split movie/divide a movie evenly into multiple segments.
