Reloading Videowave From Dvd To Re-edit

Did you make the DVD in Roxio DVD Builder? If so, did you save the DVD project file, and all of its components (as the files used to make it)? If so, than you can click on that thingie that says "storyboard builder" to re-edit each title on the DVD seperately. It's like videowave, except you can only save it into the DVD project.

I have several Videowave productions that I have burned to DVDs. I would like to reload them onto my computer so that I can re-edit them. Is this possible, or do I have to start from scratch? Thanks!

 

You can download each movie to hard drive by opening up disc copier and put the DVD in and check the box to save to hard drive and choose which movie you want to download. Then you can put them back into Videowave make the changes, save changes then add them to DVD Bldr. There may be another method, but the short answer is yes.

I'd just put the DVD in the burner and use Roxio Capture to capture the video off the DVD. There will be two copies of your DVD drive in Capture, and you'll need to look for the second one.

 

Of course, that all depends on what you mean by reedit. The above method works if you want to recapture the video and edit that.

 

If you could give a little more information about what you want to do and what you have left on your hard drive from the original productions, perhaps we can help a bit more.

I would like to be able to take all of the video clips from my original production off of my hard drive and use the video clips as is from the DVD. Then, I want to be able to add more video clips. Is this possible?

 

Thanks so much for your help?

You should be able to 'capture' the video clips from your original DVD. It will only capture the video, however. Now if you have the original DVD Builder production, you can take off the old video which no longer will have all the files available and put on the video from your DVD. Or you can make a new production and put that and other video onto a new DVD Builder menu.

 

A NOTE OF CAUTION.... if for some reason that DVD becomes unreadable, you've lost all your work. Sometimes you can still play them, but you cannot Capture the video. If you've got space on your hard drive, burn the DVD to your hard drive in a special folder that you name something like DVDs Do Not Delete. That should save you a lot of room since each DVD will be 4.7 Gb or less.

 

If you are running out of room and don't have room for a second hard drive, I'd recommend that you get an external hard drive and burn the DVDs to that as a backup. And ALWAYS store a second copy of your DVDs offsite (with a friend or relative or safe deposit box).

Thanks again...my son has an external hard drive that I can use to save them on!
