Deadline - plese help! Goal - Import DVD - then export audio - then import same (remastered) audio

Question

hello - I am glad that you people are here. I have spent many hours trying figure this out, and now I discover this forum. It's so nice to have a good forum to come to when using a new product. I've searched and come up with some answers - but this is what i need to accomplish.

 

(I have EMC9 LE version that ships with the Plextor PX800a dvd burner)

 

So I have a client that has a dvd of his musical performance (not a commercial dvd) and he wants me to take the highlights of the show and make a "demo" dvd. However - he wants me to "remaster" the audio. So here it goes:

 

Can someone please describe in detail how to do this? Here are some questions that come to mind.

 

1) Which program is best for this (Video wave - My Dvd)?

 

2) I have two drives - and I want the video data on my second drive (not C applications drive) how do I confugure (or do i need to) configure the software to do this.

 

3) Once video is edited down - I need to exprort the audio to another program (to compress and eq) then reimport it so there is perfect sync with the video.

 

4) What sampling rate/bit rate does it import as? Does ECM9 change it? I want to stay away from conversions till the final burn.

 

Thanks so much - I'll check this thread throughout the day.

VideoWave is the program to use.

 

1. Copy that DVD to a folder on your second hard drive.

 

2. Open VideoWave, go to View, click on Media Selecton. Once it is showing on your screen, go back to View, and click on Dock Media Selector. This makes it faster to get to the next time you need to use it, which will be coming up soon.

 

3. Now, click on Add Photo/Video, and browse to the Video_TS folder in the folder that you made on your hard drive. Double click on that Video_TS folder to open it. Now, select all of the files in that folder, and click on Open.

 

4. You will get a pop-up screen. Put a check in each box that shows, and click OK. The video should now have come into your production. Edit whatever you want, and save your project. Make a folder before saving, at a location on your second hard drive, and give the folder whatever name you want. I called mine Roxio Productions, and I save all of my .dmsm and .dmsd files in that folder.

 

Now, for extracting the audio. You are going to only be able to extract the audio from the original video for right now. Go to the docked Media selector, and browse to the original folders within the folder that you made to save the video from the DVD.

 

Don't click on the Video_TS folder this time. Just click on the main title in the folder you made, and you should see an actual image of the movie. Right click on that image, and select Extract Audio. Give the file a name, and save it as a .wav file.

 

Edit the .wav file in whatever program that you were going to use, and save it again.

 

Now, open your newly made VideoWave production, and click on Timeline. I hope the stripped down version has this, or you aren't going to be able to do what is coming up.

 

Before I forget, at the top right of your screen, click on the speaker icon, and select mute. This mutes the native audio of your production.

 

Now, in the docked Media Selector, browse to that new .wav file you made, and drag it down to the music track on Timeline.

 

You can now slide that to make it sync with the video. It will take some work, so good luck.

 

Once you are done, save that production again, with a different name then you did the first time. Then close VideoWave, open MyDVD, click on Add New Movie, browse to the VideoWave production you just saved (something.dmsm), and bring that into MyDVD.

 

Make whatever changes you want to the menu, and burn your production.

 

 

Thank you - thank you - thank you for your time in writing this. I will print it out and get to work.

OK - in the first stage (copy DVD files to hard drive and "add photo/video" into project) the audio does not play. All (motherboard to soundcard) drivers are up to date - windows media play provides sound - in control panel all sounds settings are correct - in audio card digital mixer all settings are correct (spent about 3 hours on this) Is it because the DVD may have been authored as a "commercial" Dvd? Also - does EMC tell the user if the data is a commercial Dvd ? how is one to know (other than it's a Holywood type production) Is the aduio of a Dvd piggybacked with the video - hence the audio TS folder is empty. Thanks evryone - I know this is a major pain.
