Using Encoder to convert a DVD to a single (MP4) file

I currently have Adobe Media Encoder CC. I have a number of family DVDs that I would like to convert each to a single digital file for online storage. All these DVDs have menus. If possible I like the menu part to also be converted -- I know it will not be interactive but its presence will show what all is there.

I know that I can convert individual VOB files to MP4.

Question 1: Is it possible to convert all video VTS*.VOB files (preferably with the menu) into a single MP4?

Question 2: If the above is not possible, is there an option in AME to merge the resulting MP4 files into a single file?

Question 3: If the above approach is not optimal, what is the best way to convert DVD files into a single digital file (with or without the menu part).

Many thanks in advance!

One way to do it is to import all of the VOB files into a Premiere Pro project, then export the premiere timeline either directly, or through AME to be transcoded to whatever you like ( .mp4, etc.)I have never tried to extract and include the menu images, but I imagine it can be done.

Premiere Pro can only handle VOB files without copy protection.

Thanks for sharing Adobe Media Encoder CC, I never thought it is so powerful. But I just used TuneFab DVD Ripper for helping me with converting DVD to the MP4 file format. Maybe I will try this later. PLUS, is CC free or paid?

I used a tool called WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro before. this program can rip DVD to digital formats and rip .VOB files from DVD simply. it also can merge multiple .VOBs into one. It can  copy DVD to MP4, AVI, MKV and more 100+ digital formats.
