Re-edit DVD

I have a DVD that needs some audio changed.

This is an SD widescreen affair. I have NO ACCESS to the original files, they are gone.

Can I take the files from the DVD (burned in DVD architect), replace the section of audio that needs changed in Vegas without any further processing of the video? As long as I don't touch the video?

How do I do it? Customer waited ages before letting me know she was unhappy with the music selection on her video, and I had deleted the files by the time she contacted me.

How do I do this?

I've done this before and this worked for me.
I can do it in adobe encore, import the Vob files, then substitute the audio.
This is prone to errors though.
Or,
Import the DVD files and render to Lagarith or even better uncompressed ,
Make changes, then let DvdA recompress.
Recompressing I know, but in the past, I couldnt pick the difference from original file.
Good luck

1.- import your DVD (or VOB) into Vegas.... "re-work" your audio track as you want... and render new audio ONLY .....
2.- import same DVD video file in DVD architect.... replace audio with NEW one ...
3.- make new DVD ... done....

good luck

For all three of your replies, I thank you gentlemen. I suspected that using the original vob files with new audio might work, but the lossless transcoding sounds very good also.

As things stand with my customer, it might not be not be necessary to do anyway, as she has reconsidered her request.

I will know tomorrow. At any rate, thanks again for your replies.

Hi Jeff,

Just an aside here, but I wonder if this is something that could have been avoided. Do you have a contract with any kind of time limit for changes to a final product? If not, adding that could help you in a situation like this. Also, you might consider charging (per hour) for any change requests made by the client after a certain amount of time. I'm guessing that if you no longer have the files in question that this is quite an old project and she's only now coming back?

Yes, it was several months old, and I don't charge for changes, I don't normally.

Yes it could have been avoided, thanks much for your response, I appreciate it.
