Thread: vob files

  1. #1

    Default vob files

    Hi all.
    I'm new to this so would really appreciate any help.
    I've got Premiere elements which I have used with some success to edit video from my digital camcorder. However, I want to add in some footage from a dvd that we bought. It has vob files on it.
    Followed FAQ and downloaded vobs onto hd.
    Tried both virtualdubmod and dvd2avi to turn vob's into avi so that I can edit them in premiere. (and there seem to be loads of other facilities on net, but none free - any actually worth buying ?)
    However, firstly the avis created are huge (approx 1 hour dvd makes 125 GB avi !) and secondly, even when I try to use one section of the avi made (thinking it was previously too big for premiere to handle), premiere won't import the avis made using the "add media" facility. I resized as per FAQ as well.
    Any ideas much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Darren

    Are you sure you selected the DV codec as the file size is too big.

    Yes, DV codec selected as per FAQ instructions.

    Something is definately wrong as your file should not be that big. Please post a screen shot of the settings.

    Afraid not, no. I need to see the compression settings you've selected.

    Well that's correct and now I'm lost as to how you managed to get a file that didn't work...

    I've always capture in relatively small chunks due to the way I edit - I find it a lot easier to work when I've got a series of clearly labelled clips in the bin(s). Otherwise you're constantly loading up a huge file to edit, and often just to find a small portion.

    But I guess that's more to do with the way I work in my "real" job.

    On the other hand I've read of people only ever capturing a whole tape at a time for fear of knackering their DV cams heads. I say the heads will outlast the useful life of a camear - and for the sake of the massive boost in productivity, it's worth the risk.
