I love that CS5.5 can import and recongnize VOB files from a DVD. I have copied the VOB files from a HS football game into a folder (there are a total of 3). I can play the files from that folder so I know the media is there. When I import the VOB file into 5.5 i only get the first few seconds of the file. What am I missing?
Where and how were those VOB's created?
PrPro, as of about the second, or third update of CS4, can Import 100% DVD-compliant VOB's, but if those are NOT 100% DVD-compliant, then one will have issues. This ARTICLE goes into more detail.
Good luck, and please let us know a bit more.
The disks are copied at high school so I don't have any details. I can try converting the VOB to a MPEG file to see how that looks - thanks for you help.
This is but a guess, but I would suspect that a DVR might be involved in their workflow. Those are good for just getting DVD-Videos, that might play in a DVD player*, but are not so good for editing.
Good luck with ripping the VOB's.
* I have seen instances, where the resulting DVD would ONLY play from that DVR (or that model), and not from most DVD players.
