up the creek/drowning fast!!

Trying not to panic here. I have a half-hour DVD that I created last year. Some of my original media files (about 5 minutes of them) are gone...accidently trashed. They don't exist. I now have to either reshoot that footage, and there isn't really time, or I have to pull the footage from the DVD so I can re-edit some other sections.

Can you give me any suggestions for Plan B? Should I try to work in DVD Studio Pro, combining the Video_TS files with new files I export from FCP?

HELP

Not that you would want to lose any quality, but is there any way you could dub the DVD to a tape format that you could then ingest into FCP?

Maybe a solution instead of reshooting?

Right now I'm trying to import the DVD into MPEG Streamclip. Will report back.

Life was so good until now!

Ben, thanks. If what I'm doing doesn't work, I'll give it a shot.

Just want to report back that everything SEEMS ok so far. I imported/converted to 100% quality QT in MPEG Streamclip (free software!), then placed the single, very long QT file into FCP. Editing works fine so far. Of course, I won't rest easy until I have a successful burn from DVDSP!

P.S. Thanks to all who resisted the temptation to say I should have been more careful with my source material. I know, I know!

Hey, i have lost source material as well. And I keep this shit on the computer for 6 months. I have big boxes of tapes now, I am so afraid Joe Client is going to want another DVD after a year (and they have) that I wont toss anything.
