here's a question which is probably quite simple to answer but for non-techies like me seems difficult... I want to present a lecture illustrated with film exerpts. I have a load of DVDs and VHS tapes but want to get all the clips onto one DVD so that I don't have to mess about during the presentation. The tapes are not a problem as I can capture them with Pinnacle and I could do the same with the DVDs but is there a way of getting the DVD data directly into Premiere Pro without playing it on a player (analogue) and then converting it back through Pinnacle Studio? I've got Adobe Premiere Pro as an editing system. I've got Pinnacle Studio 9 as a capture system. Q1. How can I get stuff from a DVD edited? Do I have to get a DVD player and connect it to the "break out box" and suffer a loss of quality as it's converted from digital to analogue and back again or... Q2. Is there a way to get the DVD data directly converted into something Premiere Pro understands and can work with? Anyone able to explain this in words a moron (me) can understand?
