I have a DVD to Vegas Movie Studio to edit. When I click on media tab I don’t have the Import DVD Camcorder Disc, option. I have attached an image of what I get when I click on Media Tab. If I click on my D drive and then Video TS , there is nothing further to click on. Any way to import DVD to Veagas Movie Studio sucessfully?
Method 1: Import homemade DVD to Vegas Movie Studio
Sony Movie Studio allows you to open up a DVD .IFO file. This imports the entire .VOB chain for both video and audio tracks.
Click File / Open, then navigate to your VIDEO_TS sub directory and enter *.IFO in the File name input field.
For a regular DVD you will see a VIDEO_TS.IFO, and a VTS_01_0.IFO. Select the VTS_01_0.IFO file and click on Open.
Note: Don’t try this on a DVD disk because Sony Movie Studio will try to build an .sfk file containing audio peaks in the VIDEO_TS directory.
Method 2: Rip DVD to Sony Movie Studio Compatible Formats
