Want to confirm which is the best approach for VOB files (deadline looming)

I am pulling clips from a large number of DVDs per client's list of timecodes. Client would like the raw - no editing - pulled clips burned to another DVD for viewing/storage. The workflow so far has been:

1) drag Video_TS file from my hard drive to mpeg streamclip
2) repair timecode breaks
3) Cmd-s to save (not transcode) the mpeg clips.
4) (haven't done this yet) Burn the clips to a DVD in Toast.

Is there anything else I should be doing that would require bringing them into Premiere? Or is this the best approach? Can someone confirm?
There is an mpeg streamclip tutorial linked to everywhere by Nick Holmes but unfortunately, the pictures are gone and you cannot see the settings.

Also, two considerations:
1) there is a possibility I may also end up transcoding them to mp4 in an extra step
2) have not confirmed this yet, but I don't think Toast offers the ability to put chapter markers between mpeg2 files, and client has indicated that isn't important, but it would be nice to be able to go the extra mile and give it anyway. So that might be one reason for working with it in premiere and doing it in encore. Not a major need though in this case.

I'd prefer to keep this as simple as possible. Have about 300 more clips waiting to do so I wanted to get in here and confirm the workflow is correct first. Also, on a deadline so I appreciate any responses.

Thank you

You cannot have raw vob files unless using a program that does smart render for mpeg (which Abode is not).
Does mpeg streamclip do smart render?
Any conversion will degrade the image.

Just one thing to consider while putting together a workflow...make a copy of one of your .vob files and then change the extension to .mpg. You should be able to import it into PPro then, and you can do what you want. It's worked for me everytime I had to pull dvd files into an edit. Might be helpful for you somewhere along the way.

Pr imports .vob.
Pr wont import all vob/mpg correct due to an issue with the resolution.
In that case use Pr cs6.

I am late getting back here to thank you and Paul.
I ended up pulling them straight from mpeg streamclip and burning them to DVD per the client's request, but now I am going to be editing them into a new project, which will likely present new questions.
Thank you again for your responses.
