I have just recorded class sessions using a DVD recorder and want to bring the DVD for ripping to iPod format for posting on the Web. I’m using Handbrake to do this, and it is working wonderfully.
Now, my problem…
Occasionally, they have flubs that they want edited out of the file before it is posted. So, I thought I could take the file from the DVD into Final Cut Pro, edit it, and then put it out on the Web. So, I used Handbrake to take the audio and video from the DVD in the highest quality format it offers (Apple TV, I think) and saved the file to my hard drive. But when I try to import the video file into Final Cut Pro, I get an error message saying it cannot read the file. My DVD disc records movie as VOB files.
So, my question is this: Is there a program I can use to get the DVD or VOB audio/video in a file format that I can use in Final Cut Pro? And, since I work at a school, is there an effective solution that I can use to accomplish this?
Thanks for your help!
Well, You were on the right track with Handbrake. My next suggestion would be to get one powerful video conversion program to convert it to a DV stream like you were trying to do with Quicktime. Also, if I’m not mistaken, Handbrake can extract only certain parts of a clip if you want. If not, do that in VOB to Final Cut Pro Converter when you go to convert it. It runs a lot faster than Quicktime to convert files and you can also do some simple editing job before you import DVD to Final Cut Pro for further editing.
Final Cut Pro can be your ideal app to create your own masterpiece with its advanced and powerful editing features. Final Cut Pro provides non-linear, non-destructive editing of any QuickTime compatible video format including DV, HDV, P2 MXF (DVCProHD), XDCAM, 2K, film formats.
