    Video from DVD is Truncated

    Ole Pa Level 1
      When I get video from a DVD, I get only the first few minutes of the VOB files instead of the entire VOB file. Below is a DIR listing of the VIDEO_TS folder on the DVD. When I import the VTS_03_2.VOB file it shows a duration of 00;05;33;10 in Elements, when there is over an hour when I play the DVD using Microsoft Media Player. If I use the public domain 'ffmpeg' program to convert the VOB file to mpg, then import it into Elements, the duration shows correctly as 01;29;42;24, but the video quality is terrible. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing? It's hard to believe that Adobe would not have tested this!

      Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Jim

      Volume in drive D is DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER

          Try this technique for combining your VOB files:
          http://muvipix.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2469

          Have you rendered the timeline before viewing the clip? Or try a short exported section to judhge the real quality.

          Also 1.5 hours on a DVD means the bit rate of the video will be "low"... meaning quality will not be that great.
