Hi, I am wanting to create a montage of a DVD reel I have. So far I have been able to rip the DVD to my PC (without any compression). But now, I want to bring in the footage into Premiere CS3 or Vegas. So, I guess I need to convert it to .AVI. (?). I'm using Xilisoft's DVD Ripper Platinum and I am not impressed by the results. The AVI is blocky due to compression artifacts. I dont understand...I thought AVI was an uncompressed file format. Anyway, Xilisoft uses DivX codec to create the .AVI so is this the problem?
Can anyone recommend a solution or an alternative method or program?
