I want to edit some cine films that are now on DVD. It seems the files are VOB. Windows Media Player doesn't play them well, neither can I get them to open in Windows Movie Maker.
I have been told they need 'converting' but I don't know how to do this, what files they need to be.
There seems to be some reasonable free downloadable software available for editing so could someone please suggest what I need to be able to do the conversion of files, what to convert to, what software I should get and how to do it etc.
Thanks, folks, for all you suggestions. I'm very grateful. I am reading up on them a bit and, I'm hoping, will download one and try out over the weekend, to see if it does what I want to do.
The softward sounds promising but I'm still not sure what I'm doing! The converting of files is the first confusion, I suppose. Once I have the files in an 'editable' format, I want to take lengths of the film and match with other lengths of film, so get the same sort of stuff together and in sequence, if you see what I mean? Sorry if I'm not explaining myself very well.
When choosing what format I want, can you tell me what I should go for. I will want to burn to DVD, watch on DVD player, MP3 player as video (MP4?)
Perhaps you can take me this /these steps further please.
Think I'm making progress though, thanks to you guys Cheers Julie
