    Hi for all! I would like to know if there is one program qualified to edit Vob files and add transition and some other effects without video quality loss, because i have searched every place and didnĀ“t find nothing about this...

    Thanks

    Yup you sure can...What you need is a Native Mpeg-2 editor Like "Womble Mpeg Video Wizard 2003" it will Let you Cut and Join and add Simple Transitions and even effects without any Quality Loss because it does not re-encode the Whole Video file it only re-encodes the Parts that have the Effects and Transitions so for the Most Part you shouldn"t Notice any differance in Quality or File size and it will render the File to a Mpeg-2 file very quickly...

    You will have to Re-author the Mpeg-2 file to DVD with a DVD Authoring Program because after editing the VOB/Mpeg-2 file will not properly Corespond with the Info in the IFO and BUP files..Vob files and Mpeg-2 files are the same Format accept that VOB files have different info in the Header that coresponds to the Info in the IFO, BUP Files....

    Cheers

    Even easier would be DVDLab.
    Import .vob's, add any effect, transition, menu, whatever, then compile and burn.
    Doesn't touch the audio or video tracks, just adds what you want.

    Accept that DVDLab only has a Trimming Feature but no editing feature so It would be Useless to him....

    Do you have Proper Mpeg-2 and Dolby AC3 decoders Installed on your System?? and did the Vob files you tried to import into Womble have only one audio and Video Stream with no Subtitles???

    Well the VOB file Must be Ripped with only one audio Track and One Video Track and with no Subtitle Streams because Womble can not read Multiple audio Streams and Subtitle streams...Most Good DVD Ripping programs have the Option to Rip only certain Streams from the Vob file..I use "SmartRipper" and it has the Option to Rip the DVD as a Single Big VOB file that has the audio and Video streams that you want in it...

    Cheers
