Not sure where this goes. My plan is to rip parts of a dvd and then edit them in adobe premiere. I know it can be done b/c I've done it nicely before but I can't quite remember. I know I used SmartRipper to give me some nice vobs. And then because I couldn't get vob's into Premiere, I used MPEG Mediator to convert them to something else. Now, when mpeg mediator converts to mpeg, the audio is out of sync. When I convert it to xvid its fine and then I can import it into Premiere Pro 2.0 but it plays back very choppy in the timeline. I hear Premiere handles DV-AVI's very well but I'm not sure how to export to DV-AVI from MPEG Mediator.
