The Ulead vs. Encore DVD creation is not likely to be an issue - by the time it becomes a VOB file encoded as MPEG2 it should be pretty vanilla. Also, if compatibility were a problem, I would think the clip wouldn't open at all (and the first three clips wouldn't have worked either).
When you say that the DVD was converted into "a number of AVI files", do those correspond to what were originally VOB files on the DVD, or is the relationship more complex than that? If that fourth AVI was created from 70% one VOB and %30 the next one, perhaps something happened in the attempt to connect the content at that point. Just brainstorming - I have never used the "#1" software you used, and I have never tried bringing DVD files all the way back to PPro (only as far as Encore, to use them again with different menus and such). But more information might be helpful, particularly about the VOB structure you started with and its relationship to the resulting AVIs.

Yes they do.
When I use the said converter (#1 Video Converter" a DVD-R (mpeg2) is converted to a VIDEO-TS and an AUDIO-TS file. The VIDEO-TS file then contains a number of "Output-VTS" files. In my particular situation only the 2nd file is not converted completely.
Thanks for trying...
Further examination reveals that each of the 4 "Output-VTS" (avi) files have lost footage at the end of each segment......and there does not seem to be a size issue because some of the segments were imported in sizes of 17 to 30GB each.
Still no problem getting complete AVIs in my old Premiere 6.01 (with MATROX RT2500).
So, it seems we now have more issues with the quality of the Adobe Pr. Pro CS3, etc.
>...in sizes of 17 to 30GB each.
Assuming that each of the VOB files didn't contain much more than half an hour of video I would expect a size of around 7GB if the converted files were DV AVI.
Can you check which codec is used inside your AVIs? (E.g. with GSpot .)
The entire DVD-R was about 1 1/2 hr long. When I used the "#1Video Converter" on the DVD's VIDEO-TS folder I received 4 "OUTPUT-VTS-01-1,
As an example: OUTPUT-VTS-01-1 its properties:
GSPOT states "No CODEC required"
Bit Rate 1411 bps
Audio sample rate 16 bit, PCM
Frame Rate 30 fr/sec
Data rate 665 kbps
video sample size 16 bit, uncompressed
Yesterday I used another Converter (AVS) succesfully producing AVIs that were accepted by A. Pr. Pro CS3....
