Quick question for you. I need to edit an old TV special together for my mother. It is an old Chistmas special that is about 25 minutes long. I purchased an out of print VHS of the special and a friend transferred it to DVD-R via a set top DVD recorder in HQ (1 hour) mode. There is another version of the same special that has a scene (one of her favorites) that is not on the VHS I purchased. She recorded that off air. My friend also transfered that version to DVD-R via his set top box in HQ mode. So, I have the two DVD-Rs and I want to transfer the file to my PC, edit the .vob files or whatever so that I can edit that one scene into the commercial version. Then I want to reburn a DVD containing the special with that scene edited in. First of all, I am not totally sure what program would be recommended to edit the clips together. Secondly, I would prefer to not have to do any compression or anything when I re-burn. I basically want to edit the source scenes together, then re-burn to DVD-R. BUT, since the source VHS is quasi-decent at best, I do not want to have to do anything in the editing/burning process that would further compromise video quality. The total length of the entire special after editing would be maybe 26-27 minutes MAXIMUM, so I know disc space is not an issue. I am rather new to this aspect (editing video) of burning and would appreciate any input.
Thanks so much for your time,
