    Copying Clips from DVDs

    I need to copy a short clip from a DVD (educational purposes, not for resale, etc, etc). I had hoped to do this with Adobe Premiere but it can't copy from either of the DVDs. Can anyone suggest an alternative way of doing this?

    Have you tried AOA DVD ripper? The manager here found the piece of software and I think it comes with a trial key.

    It loads the DVD disk and you can select which chapters you want to rip, and convert them to AVI, WMV etc etc.

    Hope this helps.

    DVD Shrink.
    Handbrake.
    If it's copy protected I'd invest in Slysoft's AnyDVD.

    AOA seems to do what I need; you can only copy 10 minute clips in the trial version but that's good enough for my purposes here. Thanks.

    You could download Prism Video Converter (free). Convert it to WMV format, drop it into Movie Maker and create your clip from there.

    Thanks Steve, that might solve an issue I'm having with codecs from our camcorder too...

    I note that all your posts recommend pavtube - is it really that good, or do you have some links to it?

    That would now be your fourth post recommending the product - please can you state any affiliation which you have with it.

    I see no one has mentioned avidemux - its free and I find it does a really nice job - you have to rip using DVDShrink or similar - but it keeps the sync really nicely.

    you can use VLC player to record just the part of a film you want. I was also reading Web user nagazine. It was either the last issue or the one before it. There was a free piece of software that lets you just capture a smal part of a DVD.

    That would be really neat, as we already have VLC installed on every PC. Do you know how to do it?

    Just what are the legalities involved in copying stuff from a DVD?
