What is the brand and model of your camcorder? Are you saying that you have a DVD camcorder? Are you saying that in the past the you have connected this camcorder to the computer (probably USB) and used Premiere Elements 7 Get Media/DVD (Camcorder or PC DVD Drive)?
The typically way to bring in media recorded to the DVD disc in that type of camcorder is to put the DVD disc in the computer DVD burner drive tray, open Premiere Elements 7, use Get Media/"DVD (Camcorder or PC DVD Drive", and use the Media Downloader (Advanced Form) to bring your selected VOBs to the Premiere Elements Media and Timeline. Are you doing all that?
That works for most quality wise. For those that have quality problems with that route, the workaround is VOB to DV AVI conversion with the free MPEG Streamclip, followed by bringing that DV AVI version into Premiere Elements 7 Get Media/Files & Folders.
Looking forward to your further details.
What is your Project Preset? Is is a mini-DVD/HDD camera?
I do not think that the Project Preset is the culprit. I have found that Premiere Elements 7 can successfully rip VOBs from DVD-VIDEO DVD disc even if the project preset (new project dialog) is set mistakenly to NTSC HDV HDV 1080i30.
I was taking the user at word DVD, but it would agree it important to confirm that the camcorder being used:
a. is or is not recording to a DVD disc (DVD-VIDEO finalized)
b. is or is not a miniDV camcorder recording to tape in contrast to DVD camcorder recording to DVD disc
c. is not a camcorder that records to its own hard drive, not a DVD disc or some other type of media.
Looking forward to the follow up details.
Sorry about the confusion I caused but your answers clarified my mistake. I incorrectly used DVD instead of DV settings. Of course with DV Setting it is working!!
Thanks you all for your responses.
Glad that it's working for you. Thanks for reporting.
