I'm not sure if this is the right forum since there is an "Edit" forum and a "Copy DVD Movie" forum. I'll give this a shot though.
I'm new to all this fandangly copying/editing DVDs. I've read around a bit, and am stumbling. Basically, my goal is to make copies of my DVD movies but edit them in one way or another. For instance, I want to edit out a part or two in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" so my younglings can watch it with the objectionable content removed.
I have a Dual Layer DVD Writer, so compressing it down to 4.XG isn't required (though should I?).
Since I'm just starting and experimenting with doing this, I would prefer freeware/open source applications. I may decide it isn't worth doing and as such do not want to put capital toward it. That said, suggested retail products are welcome, too.
I don't mind doing legwork if pointers are provided, but I keep going in circles as is. It seems there is a very large bar to get over, but that may just be my confusion.
Much thanks. Hopefully I didn't miss a blantant FAQ or anything.
