Import VCD content into Studio 8?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Rick Kowalski, Feb 12, 2004.

  1. I've got two captured DV segments that I want to join into a final DVD
    within Pinnacle's Studio 8. That's not a problem but I'd like to also
    add a Photo Story of digital photos created in Plus! Photo Story to
    the final DVD also. I burned the Photo Story onto CD-R as a VCD. Is
    there a way to import the VCD content (or go straight from Photo
    Story) into Sudio 8? Do I need to convert the VCD to .avi format
    first using another piece of software? If so, is there freeware to do
    this?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    VCDImager has a tool (cdxa2mpeg) that will convert a VCD .DAT file to a
    standard MPEG1 file. It's a free download. Studio 8 should be able to
    work with the resulting MPEG file OK.

    It's also possible that Studio 8 may be able to open the .DAT file
    directly. I don't use Studio anymore, so I can't say for sure.
