I made a film awhile back and i put it on dvd and i now want to rip it to a format that supported by premiere without losing any quality so i can do some color correction?
Doesn't matter how big the file will be if i rip it. Just whats the best way to do it and Best quality?

You can certainly rip with any number of commercial, shareware or freeware rippers you'll find via Google but it's not possible to reverse the effects of MPEG-2 compression.

You are going to lose some quality re-editing this way. But if you must, be sure to frame serve the MPEG files to PPRO as opposed to rendering out an avi then re-editing.

So I renamed my vob file to a mpg and brought into ppro but its harder to edit than regular captured footage from my cam. How do i fix that and i think when you say frame serve to ppro thats what will fix it but i dont know how to do that. Could you please explain.

When I need to edit MPEG in PPRO or AE, here's how I do it:
I load and select my MPEG (VOB, mpg etc) clips using DGIndex, which is basically DVD2AVI, but creates an index file. Then, I load the index file into VFAPI (the frame server,) which then creates a virtual AVI file. You can then load the AVI into PPRO and edit away.

Now, it's not pefect. It's a bit slower editing than a real AVI file, but PPRO doesn't seem to choke on the file, like it does with straight MPEGs.

Frame serving this way, saves you a bit more quality than re-compressing your MPEG file into an AVI with DVD2AVI and editing that way - although that is certainly an option for you if performance in PPRO becomes an issue.

Here's VFAPI:

DGindex is pretty straight forward. Open you mpeg, select your clip, save your file, then open that file in VFAPI and you'll be frameserving.

Whenever i transport the video file out of dgindex and then pull it into vfapi and then make a virtual avi and i pull it into ppro, ppro comes up with an error that says unsupported file type
