    Default Newbie - help with selecting software

    Hi guys, sorry to trouble you with this but I'm new to video editing etc.

    Here's the problem/situation.

    I have been given some DVD's containing various clips of footage that need to be edited and burned onto a single DVD.

    As far as I can tell, these would normally be copied onto the hard drive as .VOB files which I think are difficult to edit.

    So, I need some advice as to which software would be good for a novice user to be able to handle/convert and edit these files.

    I currently have the offer of either using Sony Vegas 6 +DVD or Adobe Premiere Pro 2.

    Any suggestions as to which would be better (bearing in mind my limited knowledge/experience).

    Would prefer a package that does all things (e.g. import, edit, burn and even make a cup of tea when necessary lol)

    Many thanks
    Paul Smith

    try there are loads of guides about dvd conversion to many formats.

    Also check out the tools section, as there are many freeware apps for download.

    Vobs can be edited in vegas, if they give you any trouble rename the extension to .avi or .mpg, on of those usually works.
