Capturing from DVD to edit in Pinnacle

I have video on a DVD from a client and I would like to know how to take video from a dvd to capture it into Pinnacle Studio AV/DV for editing?

Thanks in advance.

I did this just the other day, and actually from a commercial video I own to use for my father in law's private birthday tribute....

I used DVDShrink, and saved the whole dvd to my hard drive using the program, then took the vob file containing the scene I wanted, and simply changed the extension to .mpeg from .vob.

You may be able to access your clients dvd directly, if it is not encrypted. You could transfer the .vob file you want to your hard drive, then rename with an .mpeg extension, and edit directly from there.

I actually converted from the .mpeg to an .avi for easier edit, but, as you know, you can edit in .mpeg in Pinnacle Studio.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the tip on this.

The dvd isn't encrypted so to transfer the .vob file to hard drive, do I just copy the file and paste?

Thanks again
Lisa

Lisa:

Just copy the .vob file of the disk that you want. Each disk usually has serveral .vob files. Copy the large ones to your hard drive from the DVD, then rename each with the new .mpeg extension. I tried it last night after my first post in Pinnacle, and it worked there to.

I still thing converting after that to .avi will give you better editing capabilities.

Studio AV/DV? That is a really old version (or did you mean version 10?). If it is Studio AV/DV, you will need to convert to DV and you will loss some quality. If it is version 10, it can natively edit M2V and the audio, so you should not have to convert it.
