I am trying to make a home movie on my computer with video clips from an old VHS recorder. I transferred the clips onto a recordable DVD by connecting the Recorder to my Panasonic TV and Panasonic recordable DVD/HDD player. I have no problem playing the clips on my Computer using WMP or NeroShow time. When I try to add them into Adobe Premiere Elements I get the error message “File format not supported”. What can I do to make it work?
These are the kind of files which where created on the recordable DVD. What are they? Is there any way I can get Photoshop to import the clips? I know Jack mentioned program converters, but will that work?
Pinnacle Studio v943 will convert a VOB to a mpg file (it does use the BUPs and IFOs)so it can be editted on a time line etc - probably similar to Premiere. Be aware that Studio v10 has currently a bad press for not working very well. David
Most set top dvd recorders record using a different file structure than standard dvd, they record as dvd-vr, I use dvd decrypter to get rid of all the extra (unwanted files) and then you should be able to use the resultant files in Adobe Elements.
Downloaded and tried dvd decrypter among loads of other free and trial programs. Unfortunately Elements still wouldn’t open the files. Then I came across Alive DVD Ripper. The program converts lots of files, but most importantly I can open and edit my clips in Premier Elements now. Thanks a lot for all the help.
