I'm very new to video editing, and I'm interested in learning the basics. my mission is to figure out how to join a bunch of small .avi files and make one large .avi file.
more specifically, I'm wanting to rip/convert a number of my DVD's so I can enjoy them on my computer while I'm working - I am not interested in torrents, I dont trust them and dont use them, so I'm not doing this to violate copyrights and/or fileshare.
using the ripping tool from AnyDVD, I've ripped Die Hard to a file, which contains a number of smaller .vob files. I've converted those .vob files to .avi using SUPER, but I cant figure out how to join those small files. I just want to be able to click one file and have the whole movie play - silly, huh? told you I was a n00b!
I'd normally just buy the full version of AVIJoiner, but I dont want to spend the money if I dont have to - and I know that Premiere Pro is a very powerful program. I've searched Google for guides and have come up empty - so if any of you could point me to a guide or walk me through this, I'd be very appreciative.
my larger, overall goal is to fully understand how to use Premiere Pro to its fullest - so I'm also looking for general Premiere Pro beginner's guides and tips.
thanks for your patience.
