Long time lurcher and avid reader of almost all the posts.
Love After Effects, Prem Pro and Encore.
Now, I have been asked to change a few items on a company DVD, however the budget is less than £1000 (Less my fee) to get this completed. My time frame is 5 weeks until delivery from the 15th June (Last week, so under 4 weeks left) and I can not change anything else on the DVD.
The two parts I have to change are both 3 mins long each, they are both separate timelines on the DVD (You can click and watch them individually) and they are both part of a long running 32 min video.
So the brief is to remove all trace of the offending video, and replace it with new video (Instructions) at the exact same place in the DVD where they were taken from.
Now this part I can do as long as I have the original footage so I can just replace scene and burn the DVD via Encore. But the original footage is lost in the black hole of space and time. (Company who did it first has "Misplaced" the original footage)
So (You guessed it) how can I convert the DVD into Mpg / Avi (Legally) so that I can cut out the parts required and insert the parts needed please. I have read a few posts on this already, however all that is said is "Change the suffix .vob to .mpg and it will work) Well I must be a bag of shazbot and lemon Bon Bons as when I right click - click rename and add .mpg to the end of the file name, then click out the box it comes back as "Safe use DVD.mpg.VOB, and I still cant edit it in Prem Pro.
Any help would be appreciated guys.
