Capture from DVD disc?

    I am looking to change my current crop of video editing software from
    the mix of Serif and Adobe PE2 as I am upgrading my camera later this
    year, so a change is as good as a rest (plus I want new features!)

    I am specifically looking for software that will allow capture from a
    home brew DVD, that is, something I (or someone else) has recorded, that
    can be placed in my laptop drive, and captured from that drive.

    Canopus LetsEdit used to be able to do this I believe, so the 'feature'
    exists.

    I don't have a huge budget, so do any of the 'con/prosumer' packages now
    have this feature?

    Adobe PE3 says that you can capture from pretty much any device, but
    does that include the internal PC DVD drive?

    TIA

    'Capture' is probably the wrong verb, ITYM 'copy' since the content is
    already in digital form.

    Try some of these, many are trialware:

    I quite liked Womble's products when I tried them out.

    I do that all the time with PE2.
    For sure.

    You might try copying the DVD onto your hard disk, then renaming the VOB
    files as MPG. Many (most?) video editors have an "Import" facility to
    move video off the hard disk into the editor.
