Editing. Burning TV shows - help please!


Recommended Posts

Please forgive if I am asking dumb questions, I?m completely new to this.


I have a JRC DR-M150SEK DVD Video Recorder ? with which I can record TV off-air and then (after ?Finalising?) play back on my other DVD Player.


What I would like to do is:-


Record a TV program, with start & finish overlaps, adverts etc using the JVC DVD Recorder and then copy the resulting DVD-R or DVD-RW into an empty folder on my pc's HDD My pc has ample HDD capacity and a NEC ND-3500AG DVD Writer.


Use a Video Editor to edit out the start & finish overlaps and adverts and save this 'clean' version on the pc's HDD Then, using the pc's NEC ND-3500AG DVD Writer, burn a DVD from the HDD, which is a clean copy? I have just downloaded ImgBurn which looks 100s% better than Nero Express v6.3.1.10 which came with the NEC DVD Writer.


I have been recommended to use DVD Decrypter to copy the home produced DVD-RW to my HDD as the output from my JVC has multiple VOBs in 1GB chunks (in VIDEO_TS). That person suggested I use VideoReDo to edit the files. Another suggested TMPGEnc


I have trial versions of VideoReDo and TMPGEnc, and DVD Decrypter, but so far only managed to create an unplayable and unformattable DVD-RW (Sony)???


I?m sure that what I want to do has been done many times before. What do you recommend please. I?m not interested in putting Menu?s on the DVDs, I just want to record my favourite TV dramas using the DVD Recorder?s Timer function and then keep a clean copy for future viewing. (For example BBC?s Judge Deed which for some reason is not sold by BBC on DVD or VHS. But that?s another issue?..)

Indeed, this isn't the place to ask about editing DVDs or authoring your own - although there is nothing wrong with what you're doing.


Go see what the people over at http://forum.doom9.org say.



Ooops! Sorry!


I thought that what I wanted to do was ok, as I can do more or less the same thing using the JVC DVD Recorder. Just seemed easier to use my pc and cut to the frame I wanted instead of +/- 10 secs or so as my JVC instructions say. Had I bought one with a built in HDD I understand that I could edit more accurately. Must admit that I am puzzled.
