RE: Ask your video editing questions here!
New question, hope this is placed where it is supposed to be, this is my first time using a forum Smile

I have some home movies on DVD. They are 4 hours each and as they were recorded at different times, they are a collection of 20-30 min clips. I am looking for software that will allow me to input a list of start and stop times and then will extract all the clips in 1 sitting so I don't have to pull them 1 at a time. Is there any free or paid windows software that will do this?

RE: Ask your video editing questions here!
@Shannon:

I have not yet been able to find a good free program that rips DVDs effectively and satisfactorily. I seem to remember using the trial version of one called Any DVD Converter to pull some Samurai Jack footage a few years ago, and I think that one worked decently, but I can't remember what limitations the trial version had. I think it would only let you pull clips up to a minute long, or something, so that's not really going to help you.

If you want a program that does a good job, you'll probably need a paid version. The one I use currently is call ImTOO DVD Ripper Ultimate. It does a great job for single clips, but I have never tried ripping a bunch of different clips at once. I do know you can rip multiple "scenes" or "chapters" at once from the DVD, and choose which ones to pull, but I'm not sure how your home videos are divided up, whether in chapters or just one big long chunk.

Actually... playing around with it just now... it looks like you totally can select multiple clips from wherever you want in a single chapter and then rip them all at once. It's pretty easy to do! So that would be a good program to do that.... but you gotta pay for it.

Handbrake is a really amazing DVD ripper, used it and had no problems at all. Plus it's completely free. Dunno about the time selection, but you can definitely select chapters. Best free option imo.

What do you mean by a VHS effect? Like the annoying lines and fuzziness? I think the best effect for you to use is the "TV Sim" effect. I think it comes built in with Vegas. Play around with that one and you should get some great VHS effect!

I'm not entirely sure if you can replicate something like that in Vegas as far as I know. You could try duplicating the layer, making one black/white and one colour, feathering a mask at the center for the decolouration... maybe add some slight Gaussian blurs and using the warped footage aspect of the TV simulator (try to take down the scanlines/unnecessary features).. but other than that I'm not sure. Maybe there's a tutorial? Other than that, After Effects might give you a more realistic VHS simulator - that program seems to be better with visuals.

RE: Ask your video editing questions here!
All right, here's something I'm trying to wrap my head around (Using Sony Vegas)

Say I want to have a clip like this:

[Image: clipboard02lp.jpg]

But I want to move it and have like three clips, one at the top, one in the middle and one at the bottom, like this:

[Image: lolololvh.png]

Or like this even:

[Image: 4tg44g.jpg]

Is there any simple way to do this? I've been experimenting a little but I can't help but feel like there should be an easier way to do it. Fiddling around with the pan/cropping, I can't get it out of the center. Making a new resized clip out of it lets me move it, but then I can't zoom in or out without messing up the aspect ratio. I want to just pan/crop it and move it! ><

Halp! Sad R
