Can I use Vegas to reduce size of BluRay movies?

I have several concert videos on BluRay. Would like to reduce the size so I can store on a 64 GB flash drive, to watch on my tablet on the plane. I've ripped them to my hard drive, each of the disc is at least 25-35 GB. What can I do with Vegas?

[1] Import and render at a lower bit rate, to reduce the size? Ideally, I'd like to keep the 1920 x 1080 resolution, but just drop the bit rate.

[2] Import and render at a lower bit rate, while also reduce the resolution. Maybe to 1280 x 720?

Any other ideas I should consider? I know that by going through Vegas, I'll most likely lose the menu. I'm OK with that, only watch the main concert video.
Thanks,

It is better to use specialised free tools like BDtoAVCHD BDtoAVCHD 1.8.6 - VideoHelp.com Downloads or XVID4PSP Winnydows Home depending on what formats are better understood your tablet.
