I have recently purchased adobe premiere elements 7 and have been trying to edit DVD-R disks that were recorded on a panasonic DMR E55 dvd recorder. These are music tracks that are in VOB format and they succesfully import into Adobe - but as soon as I play the files in premiere there is a lip sync issue on some but not all the files taken from each disk.
Can anyone give me a steer what the problem is and how I resolve this?
I also have a DVD-Recorder, so I'm ripping DVD content all the time, and editing carefree in PE7.
Use this (freeware) approach for hassle free editing:
First copy the VOB files to your hard drive.
Then combine these VOB's into one large VOB file per the link below:
Combining the VOB's will eliminate/reduce the sync issues.
I then convert this combined VOB to DV-AVI for hassle free editing.
Use Prism at this link for conversion of VOB to DV-AVI:
The not for free approach:
I recently came into a copy of Cyberlinks Power Director (this is not freeware).
It will rip DVD content directly from DVD disc to DV-AVI Type 2, and onto your hard drive.
This eliminates the step for combining using the freeware approach above.
Once you get your VOB's into the DV-AVI format, the video is now optimized for PE7, and primed for hassle free editing...
