I am looking for the quickest and easiest way to get movie snippets (usually less than 1 minute each) from my DVDs into PowerPoint (PP). (If this is the wrong forum, would a forum administrator or moderator kindly move it?) I incorporate the snippets into my PP lectures (using Microsoft Producer) to illustrate points and to keep my students awake.
I have done it with the combination of DVD Decrypter, DVD2AVI and TMPGEnc Plus. But it takes me a long time to get just that little scene I want. I need to do this many, many times, so I am looking for a faster way. I don't mind spending some money to get the right tool. It's my time that is at a premium.
The quality of the audio/video isn't a major concern. It just needs to be intelligible. With that in mind, I tried to capture the scene playing in PowerDVD 4 with Camtasia Studio, but it didn't seem to work (very possibly some mistake I am making).
Thanks for any advice you knowledgeable people can provide.
