Just off the top of my head....


I assume you are talking about editing recordings rom a DVD-ram disk. First you need your PC/MAC to have a DVD-ram dirve capabable of playing a 4.7g DVD-ram disk (mounting usualy is via something like UDf instawrite from VOB. Second, as far as I know PowerDVD VR will let you play the MPEG2 (.vob) files that are recorded by the panasonic dvd set top and dvd-ram camera recoders. Other software to check out is UleadVideoStudio5 SE VR, which lets you edit, but I think that it is also packaged with some sort utility for mounting like the VOB instawrite suggested above. i do not know much about different flavours of windows and compatability......


I dont know about premiere.... but you should also check out http://www.heuris.com which has a project called the DVDConnexit plugin for Premiere which according to the site is designed to do exactly what you asked about..... I wish they would hurry up and deliver as I have been waiting for almost a year for this very thing myself.


If you check the site and are interested you should drop them an email and help hurry them up!!

thats correct ... i forgot to mention that i would be using a dvd-ram disk .... basically i want to edit the commercials out from specials, documentaries etc for home use only (!!) as for commercial free ... its a no-brainer ==> dvd-r for 2 hr or less shows


any other thoughts suggestions welcome

I'd like to do something similar.


You do know that you can edit out the, commercials after the fact, right on the E20? But only with a DVD-RAM. It'd be nice to be able to rip the dvd-ram files and copy them to a dvd-r too.
