Joerg,

Is the square signal generated by the PC or the Sound card or the DVD when using the Adobe Premier method? Can you play a copyrighted DVD in the Adobe software program?

Dan, the square signal is a soundfile on my PC. It is played back

* in the Premiere timeline through the center channel of my soundcard, with the GS ESS port connected during re-recording.

* through the center channel of my DVD Player when the project is finished and put to DVD as a backup.

To use a DVD movie in the Premiere timeline, I convert it into a DV avi file. This can be done in a way that you play back the DVD on your PC and record it to avi at the same time with a freeware tool. This method is legal (at least here in Germany) because you don't touch the CSS copy protection of the DVD. Of course, there are other much faster methods, but please don't ask me...

What's up with this??? You have answered other members when questions were asked! You are the original poster of these methods and people are interested and even complimented you on you discovery. Why should I not ask?

Dan, the freeware tool "xmedia recode" can transcode a DVD movie into a DV avi file which is readable in Adobe Premiere. It will only handle DVD data without copy protection. Other DVDs can be captured from the screen into avi with "hypercam" for example. Some other tools available on the net may be faster but also illegal to use, depending on your country's laws. That's why I say "don't ask me".

What I recommend is to start with a more simple setup...

It is illegal. Forums are not private.

In this case, Google is your friend.

Thanks, Joerg! My apologies for misunderstanding. [Confused] Thanks for tips and the negs. [Big Grin] (I hope that was tech talk humor).

Thanks, Damien. Google good, Google good, Google good. I think I have it now. [Big Grin]
