Nice to be here on this forum for the first time.
I have been given the task of creating a slideshow of a friends wedding and I want to add some video clips to it. I am good at making slideshows but I have no video editing experience at all.
I have a DVD of the wedding which is in normal DVD format i.e. it will play on a standalone DVD player. Ideally I need to cut quite a few 10 second chunks out of it so that each chunk becomes a little video file in its own right.
I am using Proshow Producer for the slideshow and every now and then I want to insert a short clip of video. Ideally I would like to drag in a few 10 second long individual avi or mpg files taken from the wedding DVD.
What software do I need to be able to cut little chunks of the DVD out and make them into avi or mpg files?
If possible, I would like the software to be free or very low cost as I don't think I will use it again in the future.
Any help from you whizz kids would be greatly appreciated.
