    I have all my home videos converted to DVD, and was wondering what the
    latest and greatest software is, in order to take those clips and
    assemble them to create a new DVD. I guess what I really need is
    something to let me go through the DVD and select, for example, a 10
    minute clip and export it to my PC, then take clip from somewhere
    else, etc..and when i'm done, bring it all back together in a
    particular order...

    Any tips are appreciated!

    That can be easily done with TMPGEnc DVD Author, just
    use the "add DVD Video" button and load your DVDs. You
    will be given the option to save each DVD to your hard drive
    as you load them. As you build this new project, you will be
    able to put your selected parts together as you see fit. You can
    use portions of your clips for still or motion menu backgrounds.

    Ulead DVD Moviefactory 3 and Cyberlink Power Producer 2 will let you
    copy video from a DVD.
    I think Ulead Video Studio 8 also does this.

  6. Rip your dvd with dvd shrink or dvd decrypter, then throw them there
    vobs up in Womble Video Wizard and have at it!

    then throw the resulting mpg up in some dvd authoring software
    (anything will do, even the junk that comes with nero/roxio etc)

    I think

  7. Am I getting this right? Are we talking about inserting
    a DVD in my DVD-ROM, and have the software copy the video
    from the DVD to the hard drive? (including decrypting of
    the CSS DVDs?)

  9. uhhhh so anyway...

    maybe not so simple

    I did this and everything played back great from the timeline, but
    when I exported to mpeg2 and played back in WMP, I got audio sync
    problems and problems with the video slowing down and speeding up.

    more info, when I exported out of womble i used "NTSC DVD" template


    I'm thinking Womble doesn't like the .VOB's but if that's the case,
    why was it perfect in the timeline?

    I don't suppose the problems I'm having are because I'm playing back
    on my PC instead of TV (NTSC)

    Do I need to frameserve the .VOB's and/or convert them to a legitimate
    ..mpg before adding to project?
