DVD Editing Information

Dumb question(s) from a newby. Can you suggest a good BASIC book on video editing. I am trying (just starting) to create some DVD's and am unable to use the video editing software that I have (Corel and Sony). I am unable to open a VOB file with either program. What format should I change the VOB file into in order to edit it. Nope, I am not a blond. Jim Moffitt

Are you shooting with a video camera that records onto mini DVDs?

Yes, records on mini DVD's (3 inch ?). Camera is a Canon DC320 and I have recorded on both DVD-RW and DVD-R. Same results on both types of media. Can't read VOB files. with either Sony or Corel. Thanks for any advice. Jim Moffitt

Re: DVD Editing Information

Try changing the file extension .vob to .mpeg.

If that doesn't work, us MPEG Streamclip - open the DVD, then go to File > Save as MPEG.

With Sony Vegas it should just work. What version are you running?

Re: DVD Editing Information

I have Vegas Movie Studio 9.0, but to say that I am using it would be a real stretch :(. Jim

Re: DVD Editing Information

In Sony Vegas connect your camera to your computer or copy the VOB files to a directory. Go to File>Import>DVD Camcorder Disc. That will pull the files into your timeline and rewrap the footage so that Vegas will work easily with it.

Re: DVD Editing Information

Thanks Garret: OK, will try that. Thanks for the info. I will also try changing the file extension per Ervins advice (didn't know file extensions could be so easily changed).
Sincerely, Jim
