Are you putting your DVD disc in the burner tray, opening Premiere Elements 13 to its Expert workspace and using Add Media/"DVD Camera or computer drive"/VIdeo Importer.
What are you doing after you get to Video Importer - saving your DVD-VIDEO's video files VTS_01_1.VOB and series and adding to Timeline. Where is the DVD disc and where are you when you get the offline messages - in the Video Importer or within a project to which you have added one or more of your vob files?
Are you moving, deleting, renaming files and folders once you get the vobs into the project and save close the project?
I will comment later in the morning. Need to call it a day.
thanks for the info. I'm just saving the project so maybe thats why. i will try to follow the step that you have given me and i will get back to you later. thanks again
Thanks for the reply. Looking forward to your results.
A just in case mention when you are working with one DVD disc after another....
In the Video Importer, you designate a Save In location for the copies(ripped) DVD-VIDEO video files (vob). Each of your DVD disc will use
the same name for its files....so disc 1 will start with the specifically named VTS_01_1.VOB as will all subsequent DVD discs. When you get to the
second DVD disc and are in the Video Importer with the same Save In location, you are going to get a message that the files have already been imported
when they have not for this second disc.
What you were doing in that case was trying to save a file with the same name to the same place.
Solution is to plan vob save stragegy
a. Setting a new save location for each DVD
b. Moving the vob from Disc 1 to another save location
Any questions about this please let me know.
