Can Premier Elements 11 import .vob files? (I dub home movie VHSs to DVDs w/a Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD & VCR machine.) When I copy my DVD to my hard drive on my computer, I can play my files just fine. But when I want to edit my video to get rid of some of the video I don't want to keep, my Windows Movie Maker won't allow import of my .vob files: they must be of a different type (extension). I've tried just saving the .vob files as .mpeg, but that either doesn't work entirely, or only a portion of the video in the 1GB .vob file converts. I don't trust .vob conversion download software from the internet due to previous experiences. So, I'm looking to Adobe for a solution...Thanks!
You can import .vobs (ripped from DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc and saved to your computer hard drive) into a Premiere Elements 11 project with its Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets from where you drag the file to the Timeline.
Or, you can insert the DVD disc (with its DVD-VIDEO format) into the burner tray and then use Premiere Elements 11 Get Media/"DVD Camera or Computer Drive"/Video Importer" for the VOB ripping, saving to hard drive, and placement on a project Timeline.
If you are interested in Premiere Elements 11, please go the free 30 day tryout from Adobe route to make sure that the program is compatible with your video needs and computer.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have further questions on this matter.
Not all VOB files are created the same... some reading that may help

This is for Premiere Pro, but also applies to Elements
