Creating Clips From Video_Ts Files

Question

HI,

I'm just getting started with Roxio Video Lab. I have a bunch of DVD's of my sons basketball games and I'm trying to figure out how to clip highlights so I can create a highlight DVD. I copied one of the DVDs to my desktop to work with and it's in a Video_TS file. Where do I begin? Thanks Rob

Your program is a limited version of a full retail suite and as such has several programs of the full version crippled or missing. It should still have a version of Videowave. It may be called Edit video-advanced or something similar. You would use that to edit out the sections you want. Lets first see if you have that program.

It has edit video advanced but when I try to start using it with the Video_TS file it opens in a very thin wavie file. You can hear the audio fine? I was thinking that I may have to convert the Video_ts file to another format. Or should I be using the actual disc instead of the copy I transfered to my hard drive?

You should be able to 'import' these into VideoWave...

 

Assuming you copied the entire VIDEO_TS folder from the DVD to your HDD, select:

Add:

Pick any file in the VOB:

Chose the one you want:

I can get that far but when I get to your last slide the DVD plays but it is in a compressed thin sliver on the screen. You can hear the audio fine but the picture is compressed in the middle of the screen.

Copy the VIDEO_TS Folder from the disc onto your HDD.

 

Try it there, after removing the disc!

 

Als... With Windows Explorer, click on the VOB files in that VIDEO_TS Folder and see what you can find out about them:

Do I need to convert it from a Video_TS file to something else?

 

No, there should be no need to convert to anything else if it is a correctly created Video_TS folder.

 

Could you do a screenshot of the contents of the Video_TS folder like Jim did in his post? If not list the full file names in the folder.

 

Do you have the same problem with other video files?

Well that is some kind of ugly :lol:

 

Where did these discs come from?

 

Let's try one 'easy' approach... They appear to be shot in widescreen (16:9)and your project appears to be a 4:3...

 

Start a New Project and make sure you choose 16:9:

Import the file.

Assuming it won't fix it, right click on the files and choose Aspect Ratio Handling:

Look at the Source as well as the Project settings. Try changing the Size:

IF that does not help, we will have to turn to a 3rd party converter... I have one I want to test out today and see if it can import from disc ;)

PM Update:

 

I tried the Any Video Converter with a DVD and it worked great! I didn't recall if it would allow selection of VIDEO_TS contents, but it does!

 

If the suggestions in Post #11 don't work out, download the free AnvSoft converter, HERE ;)

I was able to convert and I can know use the edit function. Is there a good video to watch to learn how to edit clips? What I want to do is go thru all of the games and clips various things from each DVD and then at the end of the season organize and arrange the clips into one movie and rip it to DVD. When I make a clip I can't seem to transfer it into another file?

Great!!! post-39730-099559100 1326196543.jpg

 

When you convert, you want to keep the settings as close to original as you can. Same for final Output.

 

You can't "upconvert" (nor can BD Players ~ but that is 'pet peeve') with much success :(

 

A couple of good postings include:

 

Steve’s (sknis) how to videos:

 

Karri’s how to videos:

And visit any of the 'How To' sub-forums in any of the Creator 20xx Forums! (Video Lab HD is actually based on Creator 2011 ;) )

 

Lastly ~ just ask here :lol:
