As a newbie I need some advice for a video conversion and editing project.
I have one long VOB file that I wish to convert, split accurately(!) (to get correct parts), re-join, add titles, add logo (visible permanently), add music, perhaps reconvert.
I then wish to add this file to my website, to Youtube, and to be able to email the file. Note that I see this as being 2 or 3 different output files.
1/ A good quality uploaded to my website
2/ Perhaps the same file upped to Youtube (let them do the conversions of quality/size)
3/ A smaller file to email.
I am trying to research methods and choices to be made to do this as easily as possible.
1/ I have started by converting to avi and have found that I cannot accurately split the file - problems with keyframes... So I figured if I convert to some other format (from the VOB) it may be possible...?? Can someone advise?
2/ I also figured that the file files should be in flash format...? Again any advice would be cool..
3/ And if anyone (someone...anyone...help...arghhhhh!) could subjectively(!) suggest the best software to use for each stage would be good - probably the simplest that will do just the job required, I really don't want to have to learn how to use flash or premiere unless really necessary.
Free beer tomorrow for anyone that can give me pointers...
