Ripping a DVD for editing

Question

It's been a long time since I did any video editng of my home movies and I'm drawing a blank on how to accomplish what I am trying to do.

I have a couple home movie DVDs that I would like to make some edits to. I want to rip the DVD, make some changes to the videos and then reburn on a new disc. I don't want to ahve to completely redo the DVD from scratch if i don't have to.

I am using Roxio Creator NXT Version 14.0.

Thanks,

John

To start with, you can go to the VIDEO_TS folder on your DVD and copy off the .VOB files to your computers HD.  I believe VideoWave will accept .VOB video files. 

If your DVD has a menu, and you don't have the original project to start with, then you'll have to recreate that from scratch, I don't believe there's any way to "import" a menu from a DVD into a VideoWave project.

And once you're done, you'll have to re-render the new DVD to include the changes.  If you had the original files, and the original project to work from, that would probably be the easiest way to make your changes.

Lastly, since Creator NXT 8 was just recently released, I'd guess you're not running version 14.0, maybe 4?

It's okay Dave.  :)  We're in the right place.  

Version 14 was Creator NXT, Creator NXT Pro, or the cut-down version Easy CD & DVD Creator, published in 2012 and 2013.

Here is a pic of the About for my software showing it is version 14.

I tried the solution you gave me. Here is what happened.

When I try to add the .vob file in Videowave using Production>Add Photo/Video..., it opens the Insert photos/videos dialogue, when I pick the .VOB I want to edit I get a popup box titled Import Movies from VOB. It says "Please select the movies you want to import", but the selection area is blank, there are no movies to select. What am I missing?

Thanks,

John

Thanks for the clarification, Brendon and John.  I did miss which forum we were in.

So, the next suggestion is to rename your .VOB files to .MPG.  My recollection is that they're the same format, and VideoWave should accept them.

I don't think Videowave excepts vob files. I think video copy and convert might.

If you change .vob to .mpeg - .mpg, you need to change the file extension to get it to work. If you don't you get a file with a .vob .mpeg as an extension instead of just .mpeg.
