    convert DVD to video for edit

    Thank you Brendon. I even got in touch with Corel initially first by a chatline then by phone to ask how to do it in nxt5 pro and all they wanted to do was to wind me into NXT8 but as I had not used roxio for a while but I had this request from a friend so I felt I wanted to help BUT to be honest I don't do enough these days to warrant an upgrade so I came on here which I should have done in the first place. I had problems from the start because almost all my stuff these days I use a mac bk pro but when I went to my pc first the wireless adapter had gone tits up so I replaced that then videowave wouldn't cooperate even a repair so I did a complete reinstall of NXT before I would consider a upgrade (can't let a friend down) so now videowave is working. I have tried what you suggested in the first place and did exactly as you have suggested in your latest advice but it will not move beyond the "Import Movies from VOB screen" so I have now taken your advice and looking through Google for a converter. I will let you know how I get on thank's for your help much appreciated Regards Johnnie

    convert DVD to video for edit

    Hi Again Brendon I am afraid I have been awile because I have had problems with videowave and also my wireless adapter but have solved that however I have now reinstalled NXT5 pro and videowave now works. I now have a problem because VIDEO_TS_.IFO wont load into videowave it just seems that everything I solve throws up a new problem. I did as you said above but it seems I am still stuck. Is there any other way I can convert the dvd contents to get it into videowave so that I can edit and make a new vid/dvd the dvd is NOT protected any help would be received gratefully Regards Johnnie

    convert DVD to video for edit

    Thank you Brandon that's great. I will try this later today. It is right I did not save the raw file it was awhile ago when I was making vid/dvd for our local variety group and other local stuff so when done I disposed of the files. I will post how I got on thanks again Johnnie

    Yes they can play DL disk and have done for several years but always 6 or 7GB and I never had a problem getting them onto a disk. I will try what you suggest and thank you for your reply.Talking about bitrate now you are getting me into a whole new game I don't have a clue about bitrates. Johnnie

    Thank you for your reply. Yes I have thought about splitting the file. But surely 10.5 would compress to 8.5gb but how do I do it. A DL disk is 8.5 gb my problem is that in copy and convert I cannot get this 144 minute file above 4.20 GB. I am hoping that 10.5 Gb on a DL disk is better than compressed down to 4.20 Gb because the quality is awful

    Large File problem

    Hi Brendon thank you once again for your help. I understand that 10.5 GB wont fit onto a DL disk but my problem is :- When in copy and convert whether I go with File/folder or ISO the result is the same. Although my movie is 10.5 GB in size the result of the file or ISO is that it comes out at 4.20 GB to fit a single layer disk. I need it to be larger I.E. DL size but it seems that the default in copy and convert seems to be a single layer disk and I cannot find any settings that will do otherwise. How can I get this movie to fit on a DL disk because on a 4.3 size disk the quality is only good for the rubbish bin Regards Johnnie

    Thank you Brendon. My rendered AVC H264 file is 10.5 gig and I have DL disks. When I make file folder or ISO in copy & convert the result is 4.20 GB. Please how do I get a ISO 10.5 so that I can burn it onto a DL disk

    Thank you Brendon for your response. Video & convert? I export this 2hour 24 min 10.5 gig file to AVC H264 and then use video & convert to create a ISO file or Video TS ( I dont know any other way) to then burn to a disk. I will admit to feeling in the dark a bit but I dont do this very often. The video is of a local variety club show and they are not normally this long. Quote (What are you planning to give them, a video file simply stored on a DVD, or a proper Video DVD?) I am planning on giving them a DVD to watch and enjoy what one of them I wouldnt know the difference. Sorry Im a bit vague but clearly you can see I dont know a lot. Thanks for your help Johnnie

    I have a rendered AVC H264 file that is 10.5 GB how is this likely to be quality wise on a DL disk. I would appreciate any ideas please. This has to go around about 20 people I have thought of Blue Ray but I think there are some that cannot play a BD disk. Any ideas would be very welcome. Would this file auto convert in copy & convert or would it want to compress the file Regards Johnnie
