Okay, if this a really common question which has been answered zillions of times on this forum, then feel free to go straight for the jugular now.
I've tried the "search" facility with no real joy, so...
I want to copy a .vob file from a DVD onto my hard drive then edit it in premiere pro as an avi file. The bit causing problems is converting a vob into an avi.
I have got a Pinnacle break-out box thingy and can play the DVD on a player, connect cables to my pc, save it via Studio 9 as a mpeg, and then render it as an avi file. losing all sorts of data and quality on the way.
Is there a program which takes a vob file and turns it into an avi?
I've found "FlaskMPEG" but their website is sparse and unhelpful, doesn't tell me if the program converts vob to avi or how much it costs.
Forgetting copyright and such like, we'll assume that the DVDs are copyright-free for the purpose of this excercise.
