Pinnacle Studio V9 - dvd as capture source??

  colcol 10:29 09 Jan 2005

does anyone know if it is possible to use video on a dvd as a capture source for pinnacle studio 9.

I have transferred video from my dv camera to dvd using studio V8 or 9 and now want to use this video on the dvd as a capture source for further editing. is this possible if so "give us a clue pse".

You need to separate the MPEG files from the DVD specific information on the disc.

Something like DVD Shrink may be the easy was to access these files.

Just a guess but, DVD shrink is free so trying it doesn't involve any outlay of cash.

thanks for all help. I have downloaded dvdshrink but it doesn't help me use my own video on dvd as a capture source with pinnacle studio 9. however, I can see how useful dvdshrink can be for other uses.

does anyone know of ANY video editing software package which will capture video from a dvd for further editing and incorporating in new movie?

Sorry I couldn't help on that - What you need is something to enable you to access/extract the MPEG files that are on the DVD. This is claimed to be possible with WinDVD Creator Platinum but then, that involves extra expense and I'm not certain how good it is.

Glad you found DVD Shrink potentially useful.
