Question

I would like to be able to record certain plays from a DVD of a football game. Example a play may be 40 seconds long. I would like to record at he beginning of the play and stop at the end. I may not want but 10 plays from the entire game. Can I and how do do this.

Thanks for any help.

Where did you get the DVD? Is there any DRM issues?

 

The EASIEST thing (for me) to do is to copy the contents DVD to a folder on your computer. Open "Edit Video Advanced" AKA Video Wave, add the VOB files and cut out what you don't want. Watch thison how to delete sections of the video file. Most people have problems because they do not remember to keep selecting the section that they want to work with. What do you want to do with the video once you have cut out what you don't want.

Thanks for your reply. The DVD is one that was copied on a DVD burner at a football game.

It sounds like I may have to copy the entire DVD into a folder and then go in and edit out the sections that I want to keep.

 

It might be quicker than you think and in the long run. You would have to watch the video for the individual plays anyway. Use the scrubber to get close to where you want to do the cuts and then either play or use the thumb wheel to get to the exact frame. There are other ways of doing it but they are not as straight forward.

I am trying to make a training vidoe for football officials and it would be ideal to look at the video, pick out the section I want to copy (May be 40 to 50 seconds long), copy htose ot a file and later put them on one video.

As I view the original DVD, I guess there is no way to mark the plays on that. It apears that I will first have to copy the DVD to a folder on my computer and then do the editing?

Let's say I wanted to copy only one quarter from the DVD. Is there any way to do that?

I just wrote a long dissertation on why you should do it the way I suggested and then had a power outage and lost it all. I'm not going to rewrite it. In essence, copying and cutting is much faster and easier than scanning and capturing. Once you have the project done in Video Wave, then you can burn it to a DVD with Create DVD. You might want to consider making chapters or doing each play as a separate project for easy navigation for the audience.

Thanks so much for your time.

Sorry about the power outage when you were trying to help me.

I will do as you suggested and play around with it for a while.

It's new to me so I should experiment around before I seek any more help.
