  • add footage from DVD to new project

    I have a SD project from a while back that the client wants modified by adding new footage from a DVD-R. The footage from the DVD is good. What is the best way to add this to the time line so that when the new DVD is made the quality will not take a big hit?

    Thanks

    Not much choice on this one...rip the DVD (Disc Capture will work in Edius) put on timeline, edit and then export to your choice.

      Thanks Pat.... I was afraid of that...I had hoped there would be a better choice.

        I did a re-edit of a dvd a while ago, similar to what you are doing (no original footage available) and did a test, DVD rip with disc capture & also a analog capture using NX s-video, while editing the DVD rip looked better on output screen (CRT monitor from the NX).

        After final render and re-authoring of the clients DVD the captured version won, the captured version from the DVD looked less sharp then the ripped version but a sharpness filter on the final edit solved that and the new DVD version didn't show Mpeg artifacts as the re-encoded ripped version did ever so slightly here and there.

        To end this example, if time permits, do a test, your result may vary but you're never sure until tried :)

          Interesting Tony. Were the two versions equal in quality other than the occasional artifact? Maybe worth a try Ronnie if you have time.

            Ronnie....
            I also have had to do a bunch of this, and here's what I found. Ripping directly is basically a digital copy (little, if any digital loss), and the capture through analog is just that - an analog version of the original. My experience is that the digital capture is more faithful to the original in clarity, and the analog capture might be a bit "smoother" (like less jaggies, if any), but lack some of the finer resolution. My screening room has a 14 1/2 ft. HD screen, and helps me to make some of these decisions. I vote for the best and cleanest copy and manipulate that as you wish, rather than the smoother copy which might lack some of the "pop" and resolution of the original. Even with "sharpening". As with everything else in this industry - it's a matter of choice and preference. As Tony wisely suggested - a test for you might reveal some interesting results. And do let us all know you experience!
            My two cents only!
            Cheers,

                I Would say yes & no at the same time, when you rip you maintain the digital domain, which is a good thing.
                When you capture you'll sure loose something in the conversion, it's more a choice you need to make for yourself regarding the original crisp sharpness or the "different" sharpness but silky smooth, sort of warm analog kinda feel.

                Not sure how to explain this, it's like the difference between cold super clean digital recorded sound or a recording made with excellent vintage high end analog equipment, the warm and cold kinda feeling.
