    Ripping SD DVDs and expiring high quality

But the dvds are SD and when I import them via handbreak, the quality isn’t ideal, can anyone offer me a workflow to insure I rip at the right settings, import the footage to Avid at the right setting, and then, finally, to export at the right settings to make sure they are clear and look like they would if we just played the original dvds? (I’m also open to using other software than handbreak.)
