I had a good look through the forums here but was unable to find a difinitive answer to my question so I thought I would ask...
How can I take footage from a DVD, edit it then create a new DVD from the edit with as little quality loss as possible?
Some additional info...
I have been editing video for some time now using Premier (currently using Pro 7). Recently I was asked to do a job wich involved editing footage that could only be supplied on DVD (that was all they had).
Now, I can rip the DVD, edit it and make a new DVD fine but my problem is that I have to re-encode the footage several times and so end up with noticable quality loss. How can I improve my process so as to end up with the best video/sound quality possible?
1) - Rip - How can I extract the VOBs to an editable format with no quality loss (I am assuming that this can be done with NO quality loss).
2) - Edit - I need to be able to edit (1) in Premier. If this is not possible is there a better solution?
3) - Create DVD - I use Encore for the actual DVD creation. Again, how can I make sure that I get as little quality loss as possible in this part of the process?
I've been doing video for some time now but all this makes me feel like a noob again.
Thanks for your time
