.vob to .avi / DVD to Premire Pro

I'm still some what new to this, but I have been around the internet looking for a .vob to .avi converter, because I would like to use clips from a DVD I have to put into a film for my class. I've downloaded many different types of converters, but they all have catches, like only being able to convert 1/3 of the selected, or only up to 10 minutes. I was wondering if there was any catch free converters out there that you people would know of, or better yet, a way to go from the DVD straight to Premire. I just wanted to ask before thinking about spending 35 bucks for the complete software.

You can't go straight from a commercial DVD to any other system
since the information on a DVD is encrypted to protect against
copying. There are programs out there to "crack" this, but that is
illegal, just so you know.

DVD's we make don't have this restriction and there are plenty
of tools available to extract the video and audio from the VOB files.

Most products are commercial products so you will need to buy
those. However, you can find a lot of free tools or links at sites
like www.doom9.org

I believe that in Premiere 1.5 if you have the mainconcept plug in (it'll cost you), you can edit Vob files directly in the timeline (copyright permiting).

hey y'all. i have seen a DVD authored by another home theater enthusiast to demo a/v quality where it was clips from various movies. he told me he used DVDshrink to extract each scene and then simply burned them from a DVD authoring software. he didn't tell me exactly how that was achieved in detail but i tried to duplicate what he did and didn't get the same exact results. as far as i know it can be done... but i dunno how. i know you can rip specific scenes/segments from a movie with DVDShrink. it saves them as .vob files. the problem is to burn .vob files and retain aspect ratio/sound and NO recompression.
