    I am using a Mac G5 with Mac OSX.
    Just start to use dvd studio pro. learning it by my own.
    manage to do everything (almost). Make menus, buttons,
    slideshows.
    The one i cant do is import a movie.
    i have a dvd movie with 3 different home made movies as
    one.
    i want to split them, choose parts of them and write them in a
    new dvd as 3 seperate movies with it's own chapter each one.
    i cant import vob files in dvd studio. i try convert vob files to
    avi but when i import them in dvd studio i have no sound...
    what can i do?
    I have to apologie if i cant explain my problem better, but i
    am Greek and dont speak the english soo well.

    Hello fellow Greek. Ti Kaneis?

    DVD Studio pro works with M2V files (mpeg 2). You must "demux" the files to M2V before you can use them.

    Or you must convert the files to quicktime, DV or anything you can then convert back go M2V.

    If you want to edit them, you need to use dvdxdv or cinematize.

    To rip as an m2v try the app OSEX.

    i try to work with cinematize but what ever i try cant hear
    sound when i import the files in DVD studio. Dont know what
    am i doing wrong.
    I thing it got to do something with the way ths dvd was made.
    they write this dvd (the one i am trying to take the files from)
    from a vhs tape. they must have done something strange
    when they transforme it in dvd.
    Cinematize sees the audi stream as Audio1(unspecified,
    Mpeg-1)
    I try to use cinematize with another dvd, and the files (for the
    movie and the sound) was importes and played ok in DVD
    studio.
    The difference was that in the output dialoge box of
    cinematize there is a section named Save QuickTime as...
    in the 2cond dvd i use the choise was No QuickTime Output,
    but i cant choose that choise when i use my DVD....

    Are you lost trying to understand what i am writing?

    When you rip the disc can you play it with dvdplayer? Do you get sound then?

    Also when putting files into dvdstudio pro, you have seperate audio and video files.
