  • DVD import problem

    Hi I am trying to import a dvd to re-edit. the dvd was created from a vhs using a dvd/vhs recoder combo. The DVD plays fine but when I import it will play ok for 32 seconds then the audio dissappears and the picture becomes unstable with green screen flashes? I have managed to import using Sony Vagas but it captures in 4 clips and misses some audio at the joins. Any thoughts???

      It's quite common for software rippers (including Edius) to fail with DVDs that otherwise will play fine on DVD players.
      Did you try DVD Shrink (it's a free download).
      I have found a useful trick using Shrink is to start the rip a few frames in from the start of the Program. Or in your case you might have to start say 33 seconds into the program, in this way bypassing the corrupted or non-compliant portion of the DVD.

      If this fails then you will have to play back the DVD in real time acquiring it to HDD via ADVC type device. If you say it plays fine at least this is guaranteed to work.

        once we know which version he has, we can instruct on appropriate settings such as use PTS or don't use PTS and other settings like combine to single file etc

          Some VHS/DVD-recording combos recording in DVD-VR mode. Hopefully it's not! ;)
          If this is not the case try do demux all assets & use these as elementary streams in your timeline. This will work reliable.

          I would suggest you to use PGCdemux (IFO based) or projectX (which also fixes some stream errors if present, but it's VOB based)

          PGCdemux 1.2.0.5
          http://download.videohelp.com/jsoto/dvdtools.htm
          load the associated IFO file from the desired VTS

          projectX (precompiled)
          http://www.oozoon.de/progs/projectx/...2-20091031.zip
          installed Java 1.6 is needed
          drag all VOB's from one VTS in on collection

              Does this work with DVD-VR too?
              I'm asking because I'm looking for a reliable solution for this recording standard!

                    Another option would be to just copy the .VOB files from the VIDEO_TS folder of the DVD to your hard drive and rename them to .MPG.

                    This will only work for non-encrypted, non-commercial disks.

                      Maybe that works in some environments, but VOB container & MPEG programm container are a little bit different.
                      No wonder if audio will go out of sync. In every case you will get some audio problems at the joins with this workflow!

                      Good luck

                        I have never had audio problems when doing that, and quite frankly don't understand why you feel that I should.

                          That's pure luck if you had no problems with the audio gap at the join.
                          In most cases there are also green frames in the video track if GOP's has not closed!
                          Take a look in the attached zip file! The screenshot shows you the part I exported & the wave form has a gap!
                          That's the reason why it's better to demux it! It would process the whole VOB collection & joins the parts together!

                          Normally if you have more the one VOB's in a VideoTitleSet the different VOB files refers to the next & the one before. If you place these VOB's in the timeline it will not work seamless because the NLE will not join theese files correctly!

                            I would not call it pure luck. I would say that this techniques works much more often than not. It may not be the most elegant solution but it often is a solution.

                              Andreas, how would demuxing make up for the audio that's missing in the section pointed to by the red arrow?
