Way to capture scenes from dvds for class project?

Hey all. I have a project on violence in movies that I have to do for a class and I needed to pop in some 5 second clips from movies. I have a million dvd's and was wondering if there is any program or quick way to capture some clips from the dvd's or some other method I could look at. I would rather not have to deal with renting VHS copies to capture through a VCR to my computer so that option is out. Is there any easy way to do this or what? Capturing clips from DVD's that I already own for educational reasons is completely legal anyway, isn't it? Thanks all!

Yes, there are many programs out there to do this. Its called DVD Ripping. I am almost positive that it would be legal if it is for educational purposes, as long as you dont distribute the final project. I have been through many of these programs, but there is one that stood out. Its called "DVD 2 AVI". You can get it at http://www.download.com. Just search for "DVD Ripper" and you will get plenty results.

Hope I helped.

DVD Capture

I've been curious about this subject but reading this thread made me decide to do something about it. Thanks to the good old web I've just captured a piece from one of my own DVDs (my work, that is) and played it back in PowerDVD. It's flawless (the capture that is, not my work ;-).
I used a download from http://www.dvddecrypter.com/default.asp
I'm running it on my win2k box and although I haven't tested it on a commercial, copy-protected disk, the interface required nothing of me but that I select the file I wanted to copy from a tree already filled in by the app.

Read this thread to get a few ideas on the legality of the what you propose to do. While I'm not a lawyer, I would say the use of commercial material without permission of the copyright holder is illegal. There are copyright provisions for educational use, but your use does not really fit.

Its a complex issue but as long as you leave it in the school, I dont see any copyright owner really giving you a problem.

Also you can do it this way.

As Long as you don't need the menus, just video clips.

Hook your set top DVD player to an analog capture card via phono or s-video, hit play on the DVD player and hit the record button on the capture software in the PC and hay Presto you have a DVD as a file in your PC to use as you wish. (Obviously copyright permitting).

Hope this helps,
