How do you import a finished DVD project back into the timeline?
on Oct 1, 2012 at 8:55:03 pm

Of all my completed jobs that are now only on finished DVD's, how do you go from a finished DVD back into the computer for editing? I know how to image the disc, but how do you convert it for FCP again? I no longer have any of these projects of course.
I'm simply trying to string several segments together for my portfolio - from my finished library. Not sure how to do this....

Thanks

It would be great if you had retained the self-contained quicktimes from which you made the mpeg2 & ac3 files for use in DVDSP authoring.

It doesn't sound like that's the case, sadly.

You'll want to use MPEG
Streamclip (free download) to create ProRes 422 files for editing in FCP and recompression for your delivery codec.

Luckily, I already have Streamclip. I didn't realize it could do that. Yes, I haven't been able to keep a lot of my files in any form in recent times. Things are changing for me now. But I seem to be experiencing a monthly hard drive bill these day's - much like gasoline.

"So do I just mount the dmg file of my choice - then drag it into Quicktime/422 slot?

Thanks Dave....
